|National Junior Honor Society: Membership in the National Honor Society is an honor bestowed
upon a student in the seventh and eighth grades. Sixth grade students may be inducted into the NJHS during the third quarter.
Membership in the NJHS is both an honor and a responsibility. Students selected for membership are expected to continue to
demonstrate the qualities of scholarship, service, citizenship, character, and leadership.
Elementary National Honor Society: NEHS recognizes outstanding students in elementary school and involves its student
members and chapters in promoting responsibility among all students, building stronger leaders, and serving the school and community.
Athletics/Cheerleading: Athletics and cheer-leading at St. Paul School are extra-curricular
activities. The team sports that are currently offered are cross-country, volleyball, basketball, track, baseball, and softball for boys and
girls in grades 5-8. Cheer-leading is also offered for students entering grades 6-8. This year we also have Pep Squad for students in
Kinder-5th. A letter explaining the tryout process will be available from the athletic office.
Journalism Club: Journalism Club is an extracurricular activity that students apply to join. Students are invited based on their
applications and weekly grades. If their Academic Passes are not punched for the week, this indicates a grade below passing which
takes priority. If the Academic Pass is punched, students are welcome to participate in the weekly meetings and assignments.
Assignments consist of photographs at games, clubs and other school wide functions. Students are also responsible for writing
assignments. These assignments are to contribute to the school's first newsletter and the yearbook. Club members are middle school
students with two seventh grade co-editors that impressed us very much with their applications. We look forward to creating an
exciting yearbook and newsletter. For more information or to request coverage, please contact Journalism Directors:

Art Club: The St. Paul Art Club is for students in grades third through eighth grade. We work with Mary Cantu, the founder and
creator of San Antonio’s Spare Parts. Our motto is: “What we have, is all we need.” Our purpose is to create art with re-purposing in
mind. We have participated in the Annual Pie to People, placing first in our creative sculpture. We also created a working cardboard
arcade (inspired by Cane’s Arcade: http://cainesarcade.com which we showcased at the 2012 St. Paul Fall Festival. We are a
recreational club that gathers together to inspire, create, and share.
Crochet Club (Knotty Yet Sew Nice Club): This is a brand new club at St. Paul (2012-2013) that offers young girls, grades 4-
8, to gather and learn how to crochet. Our goal is to become skilled in crocheting in order to turn our craft into a community service
project of providing blankets to those in need. We enjoy meeting once a week and sharing stories while crocheting.
Student Council: The purpose of the St. Paul Catholic School Student Council is to promote a better understanding between
students, teachers, and administrators. The Student Council will work for the general welfare of the students by providing an opportunity
for student expression, leadership development, improvement of school spirit, and the promotion of Christian values.
Two representatives are chosen from each class, grades 4-8. They will do everything in their power to represent the students of our
school, to uphold all school rules, and to perform our duties in accordance with the expectations and By-laws that reflect the School
motto “One Community Committed to Making a Difference.” They will strive to do everything in their power to make our school a better
place for each student.
Meetings are held twice a month after school.
Cherub Choir: The Cherub Choir is directed by our music and drama teacher. It is a group of singers from grades one to five who
sing at various functions and community events. Some of the venues that we participate in include serenading residents of nursing
homes, performing from barges during the annual Ford Holiday Riverboat event, and entertaining guests at local restaurants.
Library Club: Our Library Club is open to St. Paul Catholic School students in grades 2nd-8th. We meet once a month usually on the
3rd Thursday of each month. We meet from 3:20 p.m.-4:00 p.m. in the school library. Our Mission is to promote reading as a fun activity
for students of all ages. Reading can open new worlds and spark young imaginations. We encourage our members to read more, to
create more and to dream big. We expose them to different Children's authors as well as faith based authors. Our hope is that every
student will develop a genuine love of reading which will strengthen their love for learning.
Some activities we enjoy: Story Time, Word Games(Scrabble, word search, word find), story building, authors as guest speakers
and literature based field trips
