The Extracurricular Activities offered at St. Stephen develop a student’s interests and help build solid relationship skills. Participation in club activities allows for learning experiences in time management and planning as well as the importance of a long term commitment. The experience also allows students the opportunity to make a contribution to their school of their time and talent.

The Activities Available Include:

The Morning Show - Website Link
St Stephen is proud to have been the first in area schools to broadcast on their school network direct to classrooms. The system now in use offers students a chance to produce a show as it is currently done on major television networks. The new system uses two computers. One computer runs the teleprompter on a 46 inch LCD TV (donated by a parishioner). The second computer for the digital broadcasting connects the HD cameras and sound to the broadcasting software, then sends the signal out at 1080P to the classrooms on our computer network.

The morning show affords students and faculty the opportunity to welcome every morning with the appearance and voices of fellow students. The hosts of the show cheerfully lead the student body in prayer and relay the news and announcements for the day. The morning show serves as a learning experience for all students and a pleasant way for students to connect with Jesus and each other as the day begins.
