St. Amelia School is pleased to participate in the Diocese of Buffalo STREAM initiative. We are offering a variety of teacher-led clubs . These activities combine Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, and Math concepts with creative, hands-on FUN!
Below you will find a brief description of each club, when/where it is taking place and what grades it is meant for. After deciding which club(s) you would like to participate in please fill out the form at the bottom.
While we are also offering STREAM Academies during the school day, we feel these deserve extra attention so that the subjects can be explored in more depth than is possible during the school day.
