M.U.S.E. – Instrumental Music Program for Bay Area Schools, Mr. Bryant Allard (M.U.S.E. Director) and Mr. Daryl Lazaro (SCCS Director)
The M.U.S.E. (Musical Understanding through Sound Education) Program offers students the opportunity to learn an instrument in an ensemble setting. M.U.S.E. offers instruction for the following instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and Percussion (drums and tuned bells/xylophone) and meets every Tuesday or Friday after school. Beginning Band meets every Friday from 3:30-4:20 p.m. and Intermediate/Advanced Band meets every Tuesday from 3:30-4:20 p.m. Advanced Band stays 20 minutes longer from 4:20-4:45 p.m.
The Rosary Club meets every Thursday from 3:30 – 4:15 p.m. in The Lab and is always packed with prayerful students! Students learn about not only the Holy Rosary and the prayers, but also the meaning of our Heavenly Mother as an advocate/intercessor for our prayers to God. Prayer petitions are offered up to the Blessed Mother at each meeting. The children take turns teaching one another and leading the Rosary. The children learn of her devotion to her son and to us, and the significance of the fact that Jesus performed his first miracle because His mother asked Him to. Children can relate to this very well and they understand how much Jesus’ mother meant to Him. Students find it special to know that every time they say the Rosary, it is like giving a bouquet of roses to Mother Mary.
Sixth, seventh and eighth graders are elected by students to be leaders of the school. Along with representing the school and being role models to their peers, Student Council is in charge of welcoming new students, Talent Sharing at the Saint Clement Parish Festival, the annual Haunted House, Red Ribbon Week, and Game Day.
