Our after school sports program provides the opportunity for girls and boys to investigate and participate in multiple sporting activities, in the convenient and safe environment of their own school. Teams participate in two divisions of the Christian Athletic League, 4th-5th graders and middle school (6th-8th) and offers the opportunity to play basketball, soccer, football, volleyball, and flag football (5th and up).

The Our Lady of Mount Carmel School Band includes students in grades three through eight who have an interest in playing, or learning to play, an instrument. Band members meet one afternoon per week and are grouped according to their instrument and skill level. The band performs at the annual Christmas program and Spring Concert.

Beginning in Grade 3, students are eligible to join the school choir. They may be invited to join or they may ask and audition. Members are selected based on an assessment of their classroom participation and behavior, their desire and enthusiasm, and their readiness to sing in parts.  The school chorus  sings at various school events, including the Christmas Program, school masses, community events, and occasional morning assemblies.  Please contact Mr. Robert Aswad, Music Teacher, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Middle School Electives

Students in our Middle School (grades six through eight) participate in an electives program that offers them specialized instruction in Music, Art, and Technology.  Each course is a trimester long and offers the students an opportunity to choose which area of interest suits them best.  This year's offerings for Music are Ukulele, School Musical: Seussical, Jr., and Drum Circle. The current Art classes are Painting & Drawing, Seussical Design, and Ceramics & Sculpture.  The Technology courses this year are Digital Media, Desktop Publishing, and Intro to Coding.

School Families

Students in grades K-8 are participate in a community building program called "School Families," in which our 7th and 8th grade students serve as "parents," and our faculty and staff serve as "grandparents."  This wonderful program fosters a sense of community among the students and provides a sense of security to the youngest members of our school community.  It also allows our older students to take on a leadership role within our school community. Students gather for activities regularly including attending mass, eating lunch together and participating in spirit building activities.

Student Council

The Student Council at Our Lady of Mount Carmel School was established to develop leadership and responsibility through a cooperative effort of faculty and students in grades six through eight. The students learn the beginnings of the democratic process, moving toward more independence in the areas of initiative, school spirit, and responsibility. The council consists of representatives of the total school population. They are responsible for student body assemblies as well as various other activities. The officers and representatives meet with the moderator who coordinates activities with both students and faculty.  Student Council elections occur every spring, during which students learn about the available offices, meet necessary academic requirements and obtain signatures to run, campaign, deliver speeches, and are voted into office by fellow students in grades three through seven.  For more information, contact Ms. Eun Kim, Student Council Moderator, at This email address is being protected from spambots.
