Santa Cruz Catholic School is proud to offer many extracurricular opportunities for our students. These activities occur after school hours beginning at 3:50pm. All extracurricular activities are optional.
Students have multiple opportunities to participate in theater at Santa Cruz. Past shows include The Jungle Book, 101 Dalmatians, Cinderella, Aladdin, The Aristocats, Disney's The Lion King, and Winnie the Pooh among many other mini musicals and performances. Students from grades 1-8 learn many theater skills and become confident performers. Several students have gone on to perform in theater productions at St. Augustine, Salpointe, San Miguel and Tucson High. Students also have opportunities to see touring Broadway shows in Tucson and Phoenix. Students have gone to see Wicked at ASU and the U of A, Mary Poppins at ASU's Gammage Theater, and most recently Matilda as part of Broadway in Phoenix. In Fall 2017, the 1-4th grade will perform Press Start. In Spring of 2018, Santa Cruz 5th-8th grade will proudly present The Sound of Music.
The Hiking Club meets periodically, as weather permits, to explore nature and enjoy fellowship. Hikes vary in difficulty and time of day. All students who would like to participate in the Hiking Club must be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Permission slips must be filled out prior to attending any Hiking Club function.
Students in grades 5-8 can receive training for altar serving. Students who complete training may be signed up to serve at school and parish masses. A commitment to reverent behavior, punctuality and attention to detail is required.
