CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS
Students at the St. Mary's have a remarkable range of opportunities to grow outside of the classroom. Whether they participate in a club, a sports ream or one of our "EVENT" activities, every student should be able to find something that interests them. Students are encouraged to participate in at least one club or organization. If a student is interested in becoming a member of a group, they should contact the sponsor of the group at the beginning of the school year. All students in clubs/activities must maintain a 2.0 GPA. Some clubs may require a higher GPA. Students joining any organization accept the responsibility of familiarizing themselves with the constitution, rules and regulations of the organization of which they become a member.
