Enrichment Activities

St. Anthony offers several enrichment programs that provide learning opportunities beyond the classroom, helping students to flourish and become well-rounded. 

These programs not only expand students’ social awareness, but they also promote an active lifestyle and teach the importance of being involved in their community. Many of these programs expose students to experiences they may not otherwise get a chance to try. 

Most of our enrichment opportunities are offered after school on early-release Wednesdays from 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm. Enrollment is encouraged in the first month of school, but students can sometimes join later.

Enrichment Activities Include:

Band

St. Anthony offers band through M.U.S.E. instrumental programs and instructors that provide middle school students the opportunity to learn an instrument in a group setting. Students can learn to play the flute, drums, saxophone, trombone, and clarinet. Practices are once a week on Wednesdays, 2-3pm after early release. 

The program gives students the opportunity to perform in many venues each year. These include school performances, local parades, multi-school concerts and several free band workshops throughout the year.

Film and Drama Club

The theater club is for students in Grades 6th-8th. We would meet weekly from November - February during lunch time. In theater club we would play theater games, practice reading scripts, and work on improvisational skills. Theater club students were encouraged to try out for the Spring Musical, but it was not mandatory to participate in the club. The club meets less frequently while the Spring Musical in practice from March - May as time is used during the club meetings to practice and rehearse for the upcoming Spring Musical. We had over 35 participants in the club and we have over 52 participants in the Spring Musical either on stage or working behind the scenes.

Jump Rope Team

Every year, St Anthony School proudly organizes a demonstration jump rope team for the American Heart Association.

 

Taught by our school Athletic Director at weekly practices after school, this program promotes the AHA’s Kids Heart Challenge through jump rope assemblies at schools in the Portland/Metro area. Kids Heart Challenge focuses on fitness, health education and the prevention of heart disease and stroke. 

Students 1st - 8th grade are invited to participate. After a period of try-outs and practices, students are divided into three traveling teams that are each assigned unique performance dates. 

Registration opens in September. The program runs November - January.

Mass and Choir

We strive to provide a holistic approach to education, service, and faith. One of the most exciting ways this comes to life is in our weekly school masses held on Thursday mornings at 8:20 am.

Leadership and Service

Each week a class is assigned the responsibility to plan, serve, and lead at mass. Students work together with their teachers to prepare a theme for the mass based on the readings and also write the general intercessions. Students serve in all aspects of the mass including lectors, altar servers, greeters, gift bearers, event set-up and clean-up.

Singing Praise to God

Music is an integral part of our liturgies at St. Anthony, including school mass. There are three student choirs at St. Anthony broken out by grade: 1st-3rd, 4th-5th and 6th-8th. Students meet after school on Wednesdays once a week to rehearse. Besides singing in the choir there are opportunities for students to sing solos and play instruments to support the music. The choirs also provide music on a few weekend masses each year, and at our 8th-grade graduation mass in early June.

Going Deeper

As part of our goal to provide a holistic expression of our faith, we offer many other devotional practices throughout the year. Some of these include masses for all Holy Days, weekly prayer services during Advent, stations of the cross during Lent, and a Marian celebration during the month of May. As with the masses above, students play a crucial role in all aspects of planning and preparation. 

Our deepest hope is to instill in our young people a lifelong love for their faith, and the many ways it is expressed.

Girl Scouts

Troop 10602 meets at St. Anthony Community Center and includes Daisies (Kindergarten and 1st Graders) Brownies (2nd and 3rd Graders) and Juniors (4th and 5th graders).

 

The girls attend St. Anthony and various schools in the Beaverton and Tigard-Tualatin School Districts. 

 

A typical meeting begins with music and snacks followed by break-out project work on badges and patches. Meetings conclude with either Brownies and/or Juniors leading us in a flag ceremony.  

The girls at all levels learn to work collaboratively in making decisions about what badges they will work on and what service projects they want to participate in.  As Brownies and Juniors, they learn how to plan for outdoor activities – from finding a time and date that works for everyone to planning out the menu for their snacks.
