Power of the Pen

Each year, 7th and 8th Grade students who demonstrate a flair for writing prepare for this creative writing competition which is held on district, regional and state-wide levels.  Students compete against students from other schools by writing in varied genres about an array of topics.

Science Fair

Students in grades 5- 8 may join the Earth Ambassadors Club, which is dedicated to caring for God's creation.  They work on recycling efforts in the school as well as planning for Earth Day activities.

Scripps Spelling Bee

Each year, St. Dominic holds an in-school spelling bee for the 6th, 7th and 8th Grade spellers. The winner of this competition advances to the Scripps Spelling Bee, hosted annually by the Plain Dealer.

Earth Ambassadors

Earth Ambassadors should read “Students in grades 5- 8 can be part of the Earth Ambassadors Club, a group that is tackling environmental issues here at school and beyond.  They are in charge of school-wide recycling efforts as well and plan an Earth Day Celebration.  They live out our call to care for God’s creation.

X-STREAM Games Challenge

Students may participate in the X-STREAM Games Challenge sponsored by the Diocese of Cleveland.  Each school year, students have opportunities to create STREAM projects that are entered into a Diocese-wide competition.

Great Lakes Theater Company Residency

St. Dominic School students have an opportunity each year to participate in a residency by the Great Lakes Theater Company.  They learn about acting techniques and become familiar with well-known plays and performances.  Actors from GLTC work with the students for a full week of lessons.
