CYO Baseball reminders:

  • Baseball is a co-ed sport.
  • We encourage our players to participate in additional leagues (LL, Pony, Club, etc.)  CYO is an opportunity for classmates to play the game together, but we do not practice (just 2 practices in March) during the season, this is an opportunity to play more games and get more chances to hit, field and pitch.

Outdoor practice will be at Loyal Heights 3/2 and 3/9 from 3:30pm – 5:00pm.

Game Dates:

  • League
    • March 17, 24, 31
    • April 7, 14, 21, 28

Join the Science Club! (Grades 3-8)

Science Club is an exciting opportunity to explore all things science!  We use fun to explore the everyday world through the lens of chemistry, physics and astronomy. It is an chance to have hands on fun without the pressure of a grade.  Last year the group made soap, cheese, explored chlorophyll chromatography, gas phases with dry ice and extracted DNA.

This club is open to students in 3rd through 8th grade. Limited to the first 22 students to turn in permission slips. Annual supply and snack fee is $15 for the year. If the supply fee is a burden, please contact Mr. Swanson. No child shall be excluded based on the ability to pay the fee. Permission slips can be obtained in the school office or Mr. Swanson’s classroom.

Join the Debate Club!

Attention 4th and 5th Graders!

Join the Debate Club!

DebateAble

DebateAble is offering an after school debate club every Tuesday, 3:15-4:15pm, beginning March 6th through June 5th.

Debate builds kids’ confidence, critical thinking, and public speaking skills. Spring Debate Club includes participation in DebateAble’s Annual Citywide Tournament, an exciting event that gives young debaters the unique opportunity to practice their skills in a real tournament environment. DebateAble is the only elementary program of its kind in the country, making debate fun for kids– no experience required! Students will prepare for the tournament during regular club meetings, engaging in games and other activities that build critical thinking and public speaking skills, then working with fellow debaters to formulate, practice and respond to arguments around this year’s (still top secret!) tournament topic. (The tournament is not a St. Alphonsus School sponsored event but the St. Al’s debate team will participate.)

DebateAble encourages kids to find their own voices and to listen to the voices of others! For more information, visit www.debateablekids.com.

Registration open 8am February 16th at  https://www.debateablekids.com

Cost: $260- 13 weeks (no class 4/3)
