Girls on the Run
We are thrilled to offer this renowned program for girls in 3rd through 5th grades. The mission is to help girls be joyful, healthy and confident. In addition to the life-long lessons learned, the 10-week program culminates with the girls being physically and emotionally prepared to complete a celebratory 5k.
SFX School and Parish combine to
field basketball teams that play in the Catholic Youth Organization (CYO) league. There are teams for boys and girls in 4th, 5th and 6h grades and teams for students in 7th and 8th grades.

This is not just an athletic endeavor at SFX. Our baseball team participates in community service projects throughout the year. The boys play other middle schools from the area. Our home field
is Landry Park in Winooski. All boys from 5th - 8th grade who wish to participate are welcome.
Fresh air, camaraderie, healthy competition - these are the just
some of the perks of our girls softball team! All middle school girls are encouraged to participate. The teams play games against other middle schools.
SFX is proud to offer Cub Scout, Boy Scout, and Girl Scout programs for a range of age groups. The mission of scouting is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over
their lifetime. This is wonderful complement to an SFX education.

DCF Lunch Bunch
Our wonderful librarian, Mrs. Finn, has two Dorothy's List Lunch Bunch reading groups this year -- one for Middle School and one for fifth grade. The groups meet every 4-6 weeks to discuss a nominee from this year’s Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award list. Title picks this year include Some Kind of Courage and Mayday for 5th, and Falling Over Sideways and Nothing but Trouble for Middle School. Happy reading Lunch Bunchers!
The yearbook club was initiated when a middle school student wanted to create the club as part of her "Genius Hour" project. A group of students meet weekly over a few months to brainstorm ideas for the yearbook. New pages are created, stories are written, and photos are gathered. The end results is a beautiful collection of memories that students cherish for years to come.
Our talented and passionate music teacher leads a group of interested singers from 4th - 8th grade in lending their voices to special events throughout the school year, including Grandparents’ Day and Feast Days.
Legos never go out of style!
The Lego Club meets every Friday afternoon. Participants get to explore

The creations are amazing!
