Girls on the Run
This newly formed club at ABVM looks to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Under the direction of Mrs. Rybicki and Mrs. Thull, Math Club is where kids of all ages can gather and play math games.
Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of team events, which students prepare for during the year. ABVM is in Region 12 which competes at Grand Valley State University at one of the nation’s largest tournaments.
The ABVM School Student Council encourages leadership through service. Two representatives from each grade are elected from grades five through eight. This group of elected students serve as communicators, leaders, and organizers. Responsibilities include representing the student body, coordinating student activities, and facilitating community service projects. Leadership development with a Catholic compass is the primary purpose of the ABVM Student Council.
