After-School Programs

Art Club
Students in grades 5 through 8 may choose to attend Art Club. Art Club is an art enrichment program allowing students to develop imaginations and creativity while exploring many mediums such as charcoal, paint and pastels. They will have an opportunity to discover how to incorporate basic principles of line, color and composition to create their own pieces.

Theater Club
The Crusader Players is St. James the Apostle’s new year-long afterschool theatre club for students in grades 2 through 8.   At the end of the year, there will be a performance showcase of skits and small one-acts which will highlight what they have learned. Through the use of games, exercises and other tools the students will learn the basics of theatre such as movement, enunciation, projection, character development, etc. Other added benefits include heightened memorization and concentration skills and improvement in self-confidence. These are skills that will be helpful throughout their lives. Students will also touch on offstage areas such as stage managing, directing, costuming, set designing and more.
