Athletics/Extra Curricular

Puma Pride!


Queen of Peace Catholic School sponsors interscholastic athletic programs for our students in grades four through eight.  Under the direction of our volunteer coaches, students compete against other Catholic schools in seasonal and tournament play.  As a rationale for its existence, athletics should teach fair play, sportsmanship, and an understanding and appreciation of teamwork.  These are lifelong traits that will help the school produce productive citizens for tomorrow.  Academic work, coupled with athletics, helps the school achieve its mission of educating the whole person.
