Robotics Program
All Saints Robotics Program has grown to include all middle school students, grades 6-8.

All Saints hosted its first middle school Robotics Tournament on Saturday, November 9, 2019 in the gym. Although we were unable to run the program during the Covid-19 pandemic, All Saints and Seton School will be teaming up again to host a middle school and high school Robotics Tournament in November 2022.

Fall of 2023 – Our middle school Robotics Team is planning to transition from VEX IQ to VEX EDR, a higher level experience for middle and high school students that will allow our students to compete at VRC competitions. This Robotics platform will better prepare our students for STEM opportunities in high school and beyond.

Middle School
All Saints students benefit from a one-to-one device program in our middle school, providing students with access to a Chromebook for their use throughout the school day and at home. In addition, all 7th and 8th grade students learn VEX Programming within their computer classes and have an opportunity to participate in our Robotics Club. Students and teachers in our middle school also utilize Google Classroom, a suite of productivity tools designed to save time and improve organization.

Middle School Video Production Specialty Program
During the 2021-2022 school year, All Saints was pleased to introduce our Middle School Video Production Specialty Program. Through a year-long, weekly video production class, our seventh grade students learn a range of skills, including writing/editing content, storyboarding, creating graphics, presentational skills, videotaping skills, video editing and production. In eighth grade, our students put their new skills to work as the producers of the All Saints Morning Newscast, livestreamed each morning from the Parish Video Production Studio in the Parish Activity Center (PAC).

Congratulations to All Saints Assistant Principal Mrs. Horgan on achieving credentials as an Certified Google Trainer. It is wonderful having her expertise available for our students, faculty and staff.
