After School Clubs

St. Frances Cabrini School proudly organizes our After School Clubs for extracurricular enrichment.  These clubs enhance our students’ interests and support learning and growth in areas of Art, Foreign Language, Lego Technology, Dungeons & Dragons, Robotics, and Coding. The After School clubs are offered each quarter.  

Art Club (Kindergarten to 8th)

Hello, from Mrs. Landon my After school Art Class is a fun, upbeat time where your kids get to explore different art styles and media like painting with balloons, Oversized Zentangle/Watercolor paintings, designing & build your own Anime character, and more!!!

Bricks4Kidz® Club (Kindergarten to 5th)

Bricks4Kidz® After-School Classes build on the universal popularity of LEGO®Bricks to deliver high-quality, educational play. Every class is a fun, enriching experience for your child, building new projects each week based on a 6 or 9-week theme, using the classic bricks loved by generations of children.

Chess Club (Kindergarten to 8th)

The Chess Club is a competitive program that competes in tournaments all over Pierce County, not only as individuals but as a team as well. Your child does not need to know how to play as all the rules and moves will be explained during the first class. Note: You must be able to participate in at least three Saturday tournaments to join the chess club.

We need Volunteers to make this happen and make it affordable for your child.  We are currently looking for a new instructor or a parent volunteer. If you are interested, please contact the Development office.

Coding Club (4th to 8th)

Description: CoSpaces is a platform that enables students to create 3D spaces. There is a library full of 3D objects for students to use and manipulate to create a meaningful story, art, animation, and interactive games. They can view their project using Google cardboard VR in class or at home. Students will code using visual coding blocks. However, they can do line-based coding if they are up for the challenge.

CYO Athletics

Philosophy of CYO Athletics

Parent Like A Champion Workshop Registration

To register a child athlete in a CYO Athletics sports offering (Grades K-8), it is required that one parent/guardian register for and attend a Parent Like A Champion Workshop. The workshop is offered virtually via Zoom and must be completed prior to registering a child for an upcoming sports season.

To ensure access to the online workshop and receive an email with the Microsoft Teams Meeting Link, registration is required 24 hours before the event time.

NOTE: Coaches who have already completed the Play Like A Champion Today coaches training are not required to also attend a Parent Like A Champion Workshop. Therefore, if a parent/guardian would prefer to complete the coaches’ training rather than complete the Parent Workshop (in anticipation of coaching at some point in the future), this is an acceptable alternative.

Please make sure to read the School Handbook and Sports Pilot Registration Information.  Changes to the School Handbook for the Athletics program may be made at the discretion of the Principal or Athletic Director, at any time.  Questions should be directed to the Principal Mrs. Davis or Athletic Director.
