The 3 most popular extracurricular activities at Bishop Stang are participating in one of our outstanding sports teams, volunteering for a local charity, or participating in one or more of the many clubs Bishop Stang has to offer. We have many unique opportunities here at the school. As Juniors and Seniors, we are also required to participate in at "FIAT" which is a community service project. Personally I have participated in the girls field hockey team where I have met some of my closest friends and I have participated in the walk for multiple sclerosis and plan to do so this year again as my FIAT. I have also participated in Student Council, Peer Mentor, and Student Ambassador. I would highly recommend getting involved in any of these because playing on a sports team, participating in clubs, and participating in community service over the past 4 years has introduced me to different groups of friends and opened my eyes to new experiences,

Sports, drama and music are the most popular extracurricular activities. Most students participate in some sport during the course of a school year. Fall and spring plays are popular and many students serve as actors along with backstage help and artistic talent. Music involves playing an instrument or being a part of the school chorus. This involves being involved in seasonal performances throughout the year.

Varsity sports, drama, and student council are the most heavily populated extracurricular activities at Bishop Stang High School. As a captain of three varsity sports, I highly recommend diverging yourself in the atmosphere of sports offered at Stang. I would also recommend Student Council and Pro-Life club, because I have learned many lessons from these schools.

Bishop Stang greatly emphasizes our Catholic faith and therefore Campus Ministry is one of the most popular extracurricular activities. The Campus Ministry assists in organizing many of the class retreats that occur periodically throughout the year. By far the most popular event that they participate in is the annual Pro-Life March that takes place in Washington DC every January. Other popular clubs include our award-winning Student Council. They are instrumental in organizing school-wide events and assemblies. This year they were able to bring Project Purple to our school. The founder, Chris Herren, a former local sports player spoke to the student body about his own personal struggle with addiction and the long terms effects of addiction, not only on oneself but also on one's family and friends. Another widely popular club is the Drama Club. I have not personally participated in this club but I have attended all of the productions. This club is open to all students and is one of the most friendly and welcoming clubs within the school. In my time at Stang, they have put on a series of excellent productions including Beauty and the Beast, A Little Princess, You Can't Take It With You, and Thoroughly Modern Millie.

I would recommend joining any of these three clubs to prospective students, especially if they want to meet lots of new people and be really active in the school community. However, there are lots of smaller clubs that may pique their interest. My personal favorite is the Multicultural Club. I am a co-founder and Vice President of this club, which was started during my Sophomore year. We are dedicated to exploring and bringing awareness to the rich cultural heritage that surrounds us, as well as exploring the cultures behind the languages taught by the World Language Department. Each month has a new culture: Spanish, Portuguese, French, Chinese, and Latin. The focus is usually on whatever holiday that is celebrated during that month. For Mardi Gras, we made masks and talked about the traditions behind the celebration. At Chinese New Year, one of our exchange students, who is also a club member, spoke to us about her family's traditions and the cultural significance of the holiday. We have tried our hand at both Spanish and Portuguese dancing and made sugar skulls and traditional food for Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Our biggest event is the Multicultural Scavenger Hunt, an annual event open to the whole student body which is held during Language Week in March. Club members work diligently all year to prepare for this event. We create the clue booklets, cook the food, set up the classrooms, and even make a pinata. With this event, we are able to share our passion for other cultures and fulfill the club's goal of teaching others to appreciate the diversity of the world around us.

At Bishop Stang High School, Student Council, Mock Trial, and Robotics are the most popular extracurricular activities. Each year, hundreds of student run for a spot on the Student Council. This is a very competitive council to be selected for as all the decisions about pep rallies, dances, spirit weeks, and fundraisers are made by this council. In mock trial, students are given the opportunity to debate on a certain issue previously given to them. They are able to create an argument for and against this issue and hold a trial against another school, gaining points through method, approach, and validity. Robotics is a new extracurricular that has grown drastically in the past two years. The robotics team build a new robot each year that must be able to complete tasks created by the First Technology Competition.

The three most popular activities at Bishop Stang would have to be Campus Ministry, Student Ambassadors, and Peer Mentors. As a student involved in Student Ambassadors and Peer Mentors, I would highly recommend doing these if you have a passion for school, and want to help others learn about your high school, or help the underclassmen adjust. I would also recommend doing a sport especially your first year because it helps you make friends and meet new people before the start of school.

The extracurricular activities offered at Bishop Stang High School give me a chance to participate in helping my community and growing in dynamic friendships with my fellow peers. The three extracurricular activities that stand out the most to me are the Pro-life Club, the Spartan Green Team, and the Multi-Cultural Club. As a member of each of these clubs I can testify that each one is unique and rooted in helping others. In the Pro-life club we discuss the serious and delicate topics of abortion, euthanasia, physician-assisted suicide, and more procedures that affect human life. This club has taught me the importance of each and every human life, and how to be respectful to everyone, no matter how they feel on each subject. Being a member in this club offers me the experience to be open about these things that can be overlooked because of the debatable matter being discussed. I've learned to speak up for what I believe in, even if the world seems against it, that one person can make a difference bigger than you would think. In the Spartan Green Team we have conversations about our environment and how to keep it clean. I know how to best live my life without harming the environment. I began recycling once I joined the club, which has affected my entire family and even other members of my neighborhood. I know what to throw away and what to dispose of differently, like batteries. Seeing how much I affect this planet shows the power of the individual and what you can do to turn things around. The Spartan Green Team affects more than just the person whose participating in the club, my whole school has changed because of it! From recycling bins in classrooms and at lunch to using less paper, our community is becoming cleaner and greener thanks to the Green Team. The Multi-Cultural Club may be one of the most important clubs offered at Bishop Stang High School. Because of this club, students from Bishop Stang can interact and welcome people of all cultures. From tasting the foods of new cultures to reading articles about their heritage, the Multi-Cultural Club integrates students of every background together. This club offers open arms to the foreign exchange students enrolled at Bishop Stang as well as those who have lived in the surrounding communities their whole lives. Without this club, the student body would be more separated and uninvolved in each student's life and cultural background. I've learned a lot about different places and people, and how similar we all are underneath the culture barriers society creates. The Pro-Life Club, Spartan Green Team and Multicultural Club are inviting to every student who wants to participate. I recommend each club for different reasons. The Pro-Life Club taught me to respect others opinions and stand up for your own. The Spartan Green Team taught me to take care of my community and the power of people. The Multi-Cultural Club taught me to engage with others, even if they're from a different culture to always lend a hand; I've learned to explore the world around me and to appreciate the beauty in it. Participating in these clubs awards you with knowledge and power, no matter what your beliefs or backgrounds are, these clubs have something to offer you, so that you can offer something of yourself to others.

The Pro-Life Club, Campus Ministry and Peer Mentors are the most popular extracurricular activities at Bishop Stang High School. After four years of being in this club, I would definitely recommend joining the Pro-Life Club if you side with this matter because they are so involved and host numerous activities to participate in. Some of which includes silent day, where students dress in all black and do not talk all day to raise awareness of the unborn children that have been silenced by abortion. Also members go on the Pro-Life Walk in Washington D.C. to fight against abortion. If that is not something that someone would not be interested in, Campus Ministry is a program that welcomes all students. This extracurricular activity provides students with spiritual leadership skills. The people that run this are always willing to help people struggling with any problems they might have, everyone is there for anyone else whether it is a shoulder to cry on or a ear to listen. They also provide activities for members to participate in such as the Freshman Retreat, which I was lucky enough to be involved in this year. The Freshman Retreat was a way for upperclassman to help the new freshman grow together as a class and make new friends in a 12 hour stay at school. Older students share stories of their lives and give the younger students advice about life and being a member of the Bishop Stang community. The last extracurricular activity that is a popular one at this school is Peer Mentors, if you are a sophomore or older this is really something that can benefit the younger students. This program pairs you up with one or two new incoming freshman to help and advise during the first couple months of school to allow them to transition more easily into the new environment. This includes tutoring options and the Freshman Picnic in the summer. The Freshman Picnic is really fun for the new freshman because they get to meet all their new classmates before the stress of school comes. They get to play icebreaker games and the upperclassman get them involved in other events and get them to meet new people. So overall these three programs are really popular at Bishop Stang High School, the ones I would recommend for upperclassman would be the Campus Ministry program and Peer Mentors because not only are they a very close group of students but they are dedicated to helping all students especially the younger students.

The 3 most popular extracurricular activities at Bishop Stang are Student Council, our After-School Sports programs, and the Drama Club. I have gotten the opportunity to be a part of Student Council, the Swimming and Diving team, and the Track team. I would recommend not only these activities, but any extracurricular because it has helped me to grow as a person and has enriched my high school experience. Being on Student Council has allowed me to grow as a leader and has taught me how to speak my mind. The dynamic of the sports teams has taught me the importance of working with others towards one common goal. All of these skills have helped me to achieve my goals with in high school and have helped me to feel better prepared for the future.

Varsity Sports, Drama Club, and Campus ministry. I would most recommend varsity sports. By being on a team, you experience the feeling of having a second family. They also allow you to face discipline whether you are captain like myself giving the discipline or you are a participant and the coach gives you discipline. Also, you learn time management skills when you experience practice hours that require this. I would also recommend Campus ministry. This allows for one to become active in their community and help those who are less fortunate then themselves. This could be collecting food for a food pantry, donating money, or volunteering your time to help those in need.
