Clubs and Organizations
The Best Buddies Club is a branch of Best Buddies International, a nonprofit, volunteer organization founded by Anthony Kennedy Shriver.The mission of Best Buddies is to involve students in friendships with their peers who have developmental differences. Some favorite activities are the Halloween Party, Holiday Party and the annual Beach Party, held in conjunction with PCR, a local organization.
The Booster Club was founded to increase school spirit. Members create a student cheering section at athletic events, design and sell T-shirts to raise money for charity and encourage participation in the school community. In the beginning of each season, the club meets with a schedule of all the home games to start preparing for the upcoming events. During the meetings, the Booster Club will be creating T-shirts, cheers, decorations, posters and signs.
All students in Grades 9-12 who love to sing are encouraged to become members of the Upper School Chorus. No audition is required, just the ability to match pitch. The Chorus performs at the Connelly Christmas Concert, the Spring Concert, The Father/Daughter Communion Breakfast and various liturgies throughout the year. The Chorus rehearses each Wednesday at J block.
Fellowship of Christian Athletes
The purpose of FCA is to gather students in the morning and read scripture and relate the scripture readings to the real world and sports. The club is open to non-athletes as well.
ONYX, Holy Child’s Yearbook
Working on the ONYX staff provides the opportunity for students to contribute to the published record of a year in the life of Holy Child and also exposes them to the ins and outs of photojournalism. They can learn layout design, copywriting secrets and photography skills. The ONYX does require a significant time commitment, often after school and on occasional weekends, and a mature acceptance of responsibility. Members are recruited during the spring of each year. Share your talents and make your mark on the memories the entire school community will enjoy.
MOAS (Model Organization of American States)
The Model OAS General Assembly is a simulation of the proceedings of an international organization which focuses on Inter-American diplomacy. This program is for high school students from the United States, Puerto Rico and other Latin American countries. The topics discussed are similar to the ones which appear on the agenda of the actual OAS proceedings. This activity is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. We are able to send 10 students to the Assembly but will have alternates in case some of the selected students are unable to attend.
