First of all, what is a Tribe? Tribes are groups of students from different homerooms and grade levels who meet together once a month in a “family group” for a fun activity. An 8th grader serves as the Tribe Leader. A teacher acts as a support and aide to the Tribe Leader. Each tribe wears a different color Tribe shirt and they have their very own unique shield. Our theme for the 2021-2022 school year is ANIMALS!
Just to be on the safe side, Tribes are organized a little differently this year. Each homeroom is a Tribe under the leadership of an 8th grader. Our first meeting will be an outdoor picnic followed by group games. Later in October we will make Pumpkin Saints. Every month the Tribe gathers for prayer, an activity, a service project, or special assembly. Tribe members look forward to each monthly get together. Their very favorite Tribe Activity is Field Day in May.
Tribes are a very special experience at St. Clement of Rome and have been an important part of our school community for close to thirty years. Graduates never fail to mention how much fun they had at Tribe Activities. Looks like Tribes are going to be around for a long time!
