Pack the Gym Night

Pack the Gym Night

At St. Margaret Mary School we believe in playing hard! The athletic program has a rich tradition of combining both intramural and interscholastic sports related activities, and is aligned with the school’s mission and philosophy of developing the whole person in both body and mind. The benefits of participating in physical activity, regardless of skill level, include raising self-esteem, learning the importance of hard work and teamwork, and having fun.

Competitive Sports
St. Margaret Mary School participates in interscholastic sports for students from grades four through eight. Intramural activities are available for all students from preschool through eighth grade throughout the year. The students represent St. Margaret Mary School by participating in several leagues throughout the north and northwest sides of Chicago (Chicago Catholic Youth League) as well as the near north suburban league (Council II 3A). We also participate in numerous tournaments throughout the year. At the end of each season, a banquet is held to celebrate our efforts.
