Student Life

Student Life is an integral and significant part of the student experience at Bishop McNamara. With over 50 student clubs and organizations, ranging anywhere from honor societies, technical teams, special interest groups and service organizations, most of our students are active in at least one group.

Extra-curricular activities provide students with opportunities to lead, participate and serve Bishop McNamara, area elementary schools, and community organizations. To find out which organizations are best for you, go to the links at the left.

For more information on any of the clubs or organizations, please contact Ms. Angela De Leonibus, Director of Student Life at

In this section, we have also provided additional links for other important areas of student life such as dining services, school forms & documents, bookstore, and class pages.

Global Solidarity Week and CRS Rice Bowl

Please support Catholic Relief Services especially CRS Rice Bowl - What you give up for Lent, changes lives.

Your donation to Catholic Relief Services this Lenton season feeds hungry families, provides health care and clean water in remote villages, helps farmers to grow better crops, protects orphans and vulnerable children, and allows for an immediate response to emergencies.
For more than 70 years, CRS has been providing expertise and compassion to the very poorest of our brothers and sisters in 93 countries. But we can't do this lifesaving work without your help. Please make a generous gift today.

40 years ago, Catholics in the United States wanted to respond to famine in Africa. Could we feed the hungry through Lenten prayers, fasting and almsgiving? The answer was yes—and it came in the form of a small cardboard box. 40 years later, CRS Rice Bowl is your way to help our brothers and sisters in need each Lent.CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services' Lenten faith-in-action program for families and faith communities.Through CRS Rice Bowl, we hear stories from our brothers and sisters in need worldwide, and devote our Lenten prayers, fasting and gifts to change the lives of the poor.
