At Edgewood Campus School we believe that enrichment opportunities are central to developing confidence and educating the whole child. We encourage our students to participate and explore all opportunities that interest them. Gifts and talents that lie hidden in the core academic areas often flourish in enrichment opportunities. These are opportunities to engage in kinesthetic learning, to discover practical applications of intellectual knowledge, and to improve personal, social, and physical skills.

Choir DUE TO COVID-19 THERE IS NO CHOIR PROGRAM FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR.
Boys' and girls' choirs are elective opportunities ECS offers to students in grades six through eight. Each choir provides training in vocal technique and musicianship, and students gain experience singing in two and three part harmony. Special attention is paid to the unique needs of the middle school voice, including the changing male voice and helping young women develop strength and beauty in their upper registers. The choirs perform at the Christmas and spring concerts, help lead all-school liturgies, and share their music in the wider community.
The Campus School Leadership Council is an elected board of two student representatives from the fourth through eighth grades. They are responsible for keeping communication lines open with the student body and are the voice for ECS students. Students, teachers, and administrators make suggestions together to help improve our school. Their mission is to lead all students in service, social, and personal growth.
Students participate in fundraisers for various charities and for school improvements. The Leadership Council supports and promotes the annual Tanzania Walk, a fundraising event for St. Therese of Lisieux, in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Leadership Council encourages students to share their special gifts and talents during the spring ECS talent show. The students in this council plan, promote, and emcee a wonderful showcase of student talents. Examples of performances include gymnastics, dance, comedy, and musical performances.
Our Leadership Council heads the Spirit Day celebration held during Catholic Schools Week–the most anticipated week of the year! The council plans and organizes games, skits, cheer contests, and a pep rally.
Safety Patrol DUE TO COVID-19 THERE IS NO SAFETY PATROL PROGRAM FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR.
Our safety patrol crew consists of fourth and fifth grade students that go through training and pledge to keep Edgewood Campus School students safe on their arrival to school in the morning. Each morning, the patrol is responsible for helping students and their belongings get out of their vehicles and guide them to join their classmates in designated waiting areas in the morning. Some patrol members are the door holders and greeters for the morning. Patrol members must arrive at school by 7:40 a.m. on the mornings they have duty assignments.
Theater DUE TO COVID-19 THERE IS NO THEATER PROGRAM FOR THE 2020-21 SCHOOL YEAR.
Students in seventh and eighth grade produce and perform a musical each spring. This experience is part of the music curriculum. Along with singing, acting, and dance performance opportunities, students participate in set-making, costume design, and stage crew. This class production is a wonderful opportunity to work together and support each other as students demonstrate their individual gifts, talents, and abilities.
