A well-rounded student has access to a high-quality education, support for growing in faith, and extracurricular activities. Our students participate in a number of clubs and activities outside the classroom, allowing them to develop interests and establish relationships around those interests.
QP Knights Athletics
Athletics are a huge part of student life at OLQP School, and provide an opportunity for students to learn basic skills including strategy, dedication, team play, and sportsmanship. We provide interscholastic sports to students in fifth through eighth grades. We strive to instill the desire to contribute to the team and maintain lifelong healthy activity.

- Fall: Boys Touch Football and Girls Volleyball
- Winter: Boys and Girls Basketball

After-School Enrichment Classes
We are excited to offer several options after school at different times throughout the school year. Some are teacher-led and will have parent involvement. We outsource a few of the classes to community organizations. Sign-up information will be available through the Wednesday Update weekly school email.

The Wellness Committee is a subcommittee of Education Commission, comprised of school parents and staff, which encourages a school environment promoting children’s health, well-being, and life-long learning. In collaboration with staff, Wellness volunteers help support healthy eating and physical activity as outlined by the QP wellness policy. Volunteers offer or co-sponsor opportunities like gardening in the school garden, a free karate class, a healthy snack design contest, mindful movement, winter break open gym, the spring fun run/walk, and a summer wellness challenge. Sign up to help in the QP School garden.
