In keeping with our philosophy to “Educate the Whole Child” MQH offers many opportunities for children to shine.
NATIONAL JUNIOR BETA CLUB: for students in Grades 5-8 who are on First Honors or Principal's List. The students are taught Leadership through service and are responsible for many of the in school activities.
BAND: Every Wednesday groups of children meet with the teachers from the Paul Effmann Music Company. This is a separate program for which MQH provides space. Children in grades 3-8 are eligible. (click for the current band schedule)
TECH TEAM: is composed of students in grades 5-8 who are enrolled in the Junior Beta led by Mrs. Griffo. They are responsible for keeping all our computers in fine repair.
PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM: is responsible for taking pictures at special events. led by Mrs. Griffo. They are also involved in the publishing of our annual yearbook.
DECORATING COMMITTEE: is involved in making our windows a source of beauty in the neighborhood. The children give up their recess time to create and hang seasonal decorations.
CONTESTS: are a major part of life at MQH. In addition to our own contests—Spelling Bees, Quiz Bowl, Geography Bee and Math Bees, we have the children enter all the contests established by the Catholic War Veterans—poster, essay and coloring. In the past we have been fortunate to have our children win in all categories including the National level.
