Here is just a small sampling of some of the after school activities we have to offer.
Saint Mary School has three boy scouting units offering a variety of programs for our youth.
CUB SCOUTS - The Cub Scout program is open to any boy who is seven years old or in first grade through ten years old.
BOY SCOUTS - Boy Scouts is open to boys who are 11 years old or who are ten years-old and earned the Cub Scout “Arrow of Light Award”.
SEA SCOUTS - The Sea Scouts program is a unique division of Boys Scouts that focuses on boating. We offer sailing on a 30-Foot sailboat. The program also teaches boating safety. The Sea Scouts is a co-educational program open to Boys and Girls who are at least 14 years-old.

Individual troop meetings vary from weekly to monthly. There are events for SMS Girl Scouts during throughout the school year.
The Chess Club is run by the Connecticut School of Chess and meets on Friday afternoons. Students grades K to 8 may participate. Moderated by Coach Tom, the club members competed with one another while honing their focus, practicing to be better thinkers, and visualizing next steps for the best outcome. Girls and boys are encouraged to join the Chess Club during the Fall or Spring session.
St. Mary School has 2 opportunities for students to be apart of theatrical performances.
St. Mary Drama Club, led by Lisa Lelas, begins in January and meets Monday afternons until May. Two final on-stage productions are held on the Monday before Memorial Day. Sign up notices going out in December to all students in grades 4-8.
SMS Broadway Stars, led by Pantochino Productions, is a Fall club with performances before Christmas break. This is open to all students in grades 4-8. Add a link to Pantochino Productions website.
This program, administered throughout the Archdiocese of Hartford by FUTURE MUSICIANS, INC. (FMI), allows students in grades 4-8 the opportunity to receive a group lesson once per week in any of the brass, woodwind or percussion instruments. The scheduling of these lessons is rotated each week so a student never misses the same class more than one time per month.
Students who register become part of either the BEGINNING BAND (which practices once per week during school hours) or ADVANCED BAND (which practices once per week after school). Besides our school bands, the bands of local Catholic schools are often combined and more advanced students are afforded the opportunity to perform with regional and statewide “All Star” bands.
The fee and registration for this program is administered through FMI. Interested parents will be invited to a special informational evening meeting early in the year.
