Middle School  House System

Middle School students at StMS participate in the Middle School House System each year. The goal of the House System is to build community within grades 6-8, implement service learning, and integrate the Positivity Project (P2) into every aspect of life at StMS. 

Students are randomly sorted into one of six houses, each named for a patron Saint who represents one of the P2 Character Strengths:
Assisi House (Transcendence)
Drexel House (Wisdom/Knowledge)
Kateri House (Temperance)
Peter House (Courage)
Porres House (Humanity)
Romero House (Justice)

The Houses meet weekly on Wednesdays and use their time together to work on “Mission Experiences,” which are service opportunities to make a difference in our school, Parish, and greater community; learn more about the Positivity Project's character strengths; learn more about their House Saint and celebrate the Saints’ feast days, and enjoy fellowship with each other. Students will remain in the same house through Grade 8. Students caught exemplifying the character strengths of P2 will be awarded “P2 points” that will help their house earn rewards.
