Clubs & Activities


A variety of extracurricular opportunities are currently offered at Michael Strembitsky School during the noon hour or after school. These opportunities are cross-graded and voluntary. Extracurricular opportunities provide students with enriched educational experiences to enhance learning and to build upon our students’ varying interests.

Please note - The selection of extra curricular clubs offered will be contingent on the enrollment numbers in each club and having qualified staff to run the activity.

Extra Curricular Clubs

Grades 2-3 and 4-6 Choirs – If you enjoy singing, then join a Michael Strembitsky School Choir!  Choir rehearses once a week and learns choral music to sing at both in and out-of-school performances.  New members are accepted throughout the year, so come out and make a beautiful choral sound!

Handbell Ensemble – Our Handbell Ensemble is a dedicated group of Division 2 and 3 students who meet once a week to learn the art of bell-ringing.  Handbells are an excellent way to improve music literacy while making exquisite music!  The Handbell Ensemble works on a variety of repertoire to perform throughout the year.

Glee Club - The MSS Glee club is a musical group comprised of junior high students who love to sing and bring joy to others through song. The students in glee combine popular contemporary music with movement and harmonies; often creating their own medleys and mash-ups. The club, directed by Ms. Schneider, meets on a weekly basis and performs for school concerts and events.

Library Club – We have a great group of volunteers from grades five and six. Their enthusiasm for reading, books and helping our Learning Commons to run more efficiently is contagious, their commitment is sincerely appreciated and their collaboration and leadership skills are commendable.

Announcement Club - Students in grades 6 - 9 can join the announcement club.  The announcement club members report to the office and read the daily announcements over the PA system every morning.
