Extracurricular activities make a school come alive. St. Francis de Sales offers a variety of opportunities that allow students to become involved in areas of interest, and display their talents and skills outside the academic arena.
Choir of Angels is the student choir that performs during our school Masses. Students rehearse the day of Mass before school and then perform songs and lead the rest of the school in song during Mass. Middle School students are given the opportunity to accompany the singing on different musical instruments. Choir of Angels is open to students in 2nd through 8th grade.
Fiat is the Latin word for Mary’s “yes” to God to be the mother of Jesus. FIAT also provides a great acronym for our Faith in Action Team! It reminds us that we say “yes” to God by being involved in our faith. We will be learning about our faith, leading school prayer services, and having quarterly service projects that will help us to live out our faith, even as young people. At each meeting, students learn about a Catholic saint. Service projects include: one for the community—usually the food pantry, one for the Archdiocese—during Catholic Schools Week, and one for the parish—sponsoring the Soup & Stations during Lent. Mary’s FIAT is open to students in 5th through 8th grade.

The musical program is open to all students 1st through
The Ski Program is a partnership with The Grand Geneva Resort.

Student Voice is an organization that allows students to help make decisions that affect students and give students the opportunity to discuss possible changes to the school. Student Voice meets during lunch where students can voice their opinions, plan school-wide events and programs, discuss different ways to improve the school from the student perspective. Each classroom is assigned a Student Voice representative to be their “voice” in the meetings. Student Voice is open to students 5th through 8th grade.
