Catch the Spirit! We have three cheerleading squads. Our Jr. Cheer Exhibition Squad (grades 1 – 2) participates in exhibitions on the weekends. The Mites Cheer Squad (grades 3 – 5) cheers for our CYO Mites and Jr. Mites basketball teams. Our Competition Squad (grades 6 – 8, 5th grade by try outs only) enters several Cheer competitions. Each squad has practices with games and/or competitions on the weekends. This program generally runs from late October/early November through March.
Our students in grades 2-8 learn a variety of songs and perform for the student body throughout the year. Practices are held after school. Choir students also perform at the 8th grade graduation.
Girl Scouting helps develop courage, confidence, and character in its members. If you’re looking for a fun and exciting group for your daughter, the Girl Scout Program is the place for her. Here she will learn many skills that will help her through life. Currently there are three Girls Scout troops at PMA, of different age levels, who meet once a week after school. Information about joining is sent at the start of the school year.
Piano lessons are offered to students in grades 2-8 by Sr. Lorraine Pinette. This program is run independently of the school. The program allows for home practice as well as scheduled lessons with Sr. Lorraine at school. Piano students participate in several recitals throughout the school year. Lessons are scheduled either before or after school hours.
