All Souls Catholic School offers a treasure of extra-curricular activities designed to enrich and inspire its students’ lives. Clubs and activities vary based on the interests of current year students. We welcome new ideas and organizations, so If you are a current school parent interested in starting a club or organization at All Souls, please contact the school administration.
Designed to provide a creative outlet for students in grades 3rd through 8th, Art Club is a place for students to come and create in a independent manner. All Souls provides the space and time for kids to create and design what they want in whatever medium they choose - drawing, painting, clay, found object sculptures + mixed media.
This is not a club where students are required to attend every session. Students can drop in as frequently as they want.
A one-time $50 art supplies fee is paid and covers all sessions the student attends.
Art Workshops gives students a more structured environment with instruction provided by the All Souls Art teacher. Workshops are held after school and open to students of all ages grades Kindergarten through 8th. During the hour and half workshop students create a specific art project with step-by-step instruction. Although projects are specific for each workshop, students are encouraged to include their own personal touch of creativity.
Each workshop costs $35 per student.
All Souls Catholic School offers a Cub Scout program for boys in grades 1st through 5th. The purpose of the scouting program is to help boys develop intellectually, physically, and spiritually. Throughout the year, the scouts participate in a variety of outdoor programs and services, including projects that help build character, teach important life skills, and nurture an appreciation and respect towards school and community.
Registration for Cub Scouts takes place in August during school registration.
Junior Sacristans and Altar Servers
Beginning in 5th grade, students are invited to go through the alter serving training process. With the help of the All Souls Pastor and experienced servers, these students learn the skills necessary to support the priest before, during, and after mass. Students in 7th and 8th grade, who are parishioners of All Souls, are invited to become Junior Sacristans. Our Junior Sacristans work closely with an advising Sacristan in the preparation and cleaning of the vessels needed during mass. Following their years as a Junior Sacristan, trained students are invited to serve as official Sacristan’s during Sunday mass.
All Souls Catholic School competes annually in the Colorado/Wyoming Optimist Brain Bowl for middle school students. Our school fields three teams from sixth, seventh and eighth grade, to compete in this exciting, enriching competition.
Regional competitions consist of thirty teams competing head-to-head in four oral rounds, requiring rapid recall of facts from all academic areas, as well as a written test round.
All Souls, the only Catholic School that competes in the Brain Bowl, has a long history of competing well against the larger public schools. One All Souls seventh grade team placed first overall in the championship rounds.
All Souls Catholic School offer The Little Flowers program for girls in grades Kindergarten through 2nd. This program gives young girls an opportunity to strengthen their spiritual foundations. The patroness for Little Flowers is St. Therese of Lisieux and we try to follow her "little way" by doing good deeds and reaching out to our community.
Each month the girls learn about a different saint and virtue and then do a community service project based on what they have learned.
Our year culminates with a field trip to Mother Cabrini Shrine and a mother/daughter luncheon.
National Junior Honor Society
More than just an honor roll, NJHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, Character, and Citizenship. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since it was founded in 1929.
Invitations to apply for membership are given to any 7th or 8th grade student with a GPA of 3.8. Our current members of NJHS meet weekly to offer free after-school tutoring services and to discuss and plan upcoming service projects.
In 2016, All Souls Catholic School inducted 11 students into our inaugural membership class of National Junior Honor Society.
Science Matters is an exciting after school science enrichment program for All Souls students. The program is run by Science Matters in America and all instructors are well versed in various areas of science. Each club consists of a minimum of twelve students meeting one hour a week after school for five weeks. The topic for each session varies to give students exposure to all areas of science.

The "Spirits and Soles" Running Club is a non-competitive and fun introduction to the sport of running, held in the springtime after school and is open to students in grades K through 4. School parents and staff plan the sessions, including form exercises, games, circuit training, medium distance running, and sprinting.
By the end of our "season", most students are able to walk or jog up to two miles with parent supervision. Many students in the group participate in different sports and find that running club increases their fitness and strength on the field.
All Souls Catholic School has a long tradition of 7th and 8th grade students participating in the Archdiocesan Speech Association. Through weekly practice, students are taught the basics of public speaking and speech writing. Competitions against other Catholic schools occur two times per year culminating in a Trophy Meet where students compete for individual and team trophies. The Speech Team also produces Shadow Stations of the Cross during the Lenten Season.
Spelling Club is open to 4th to 8th grade. The club meets weekly from mid October through early spring to practice obscure words, have “mock bees,” play word games, and study rules of spelling. All this is to prepare for the Archdiocesan Spelling Bee where over 100 students from area Catholic schools compete in a written test and oral spelling bee rounds.
4th and 5th grade compete in the Intermediate Bee; 6th to 8th and any finalists from the Intermediate Bee compete in the Advanced Bee.
Winners from the Advanced Bee may move on to the State Spelling Bee.
All Souls Student Council is comprised of students in grades 5th through 8th. Student Council plans a variety of student-organized events to promote student life and school spirit, including Spirit Week, the School Carnival, out-of-uniform days, and snack sales. Members also help plan and participate in liturgies throughout the school year. Student Council members collect Campbell Soup labels and Box Tops from classrooms and tally the totals on a weekly basis.
There are four Student Council officers elected in the early fall and serve the entire year. President is held by an 8th grader and vice president, treasurer, and secretary are open to 7th or 8th graders. In addition to the officers there are class representatives that serve half-year terms.
Each 5th, 6th, and 7th grade homeroom has two representatives and each 8th grade homeroom has three representatives. Student Council is a great way for a student to become an active participant in student led activities and be seen as a leader by his or her peers.
Students and staff members compile the yearbook each year. Working on the yearbook provides students opportunities to learn skills that will be helpful later in life. It fosters a sense of teamwork, responsibility, enhances writing and computer skills, and always brings a sense of accomplishment when a bound, published All Souls School Yearbook is ready for signing at the end of the school year.
All Souls Youth Group provides youth in grades 6th through 12th the opportunity to connect with a vibrant Catholic community of peers centered in building their relationship with Christ.
Middle School Youth Group meets throughout the school year on Wednesday evenings and High School Youth Group meets throughout the school year on Sunday evenings. All Souls Youth also participate in various retreats and service programs for youth.
