Development Through Discomfort is a new club at Seton Catholic. Just as the name implies, club members focus their attention on overcoming different challenges in their lives. Students participate in fun and mildly competitive activities with the goal of successfully facing their fears, head on. The club has thirty members.
Diversity & Equity Advisory Committee
This important committee is made up of parents, students, professionals, and experts that are well-versed in topics relating to equity, diversity, mental health and inclusion. Members come with various cultural and ethnic backgrounds and wide-ranging life experiences. The advisory committee assists in various events and activities that help foster and reinforce the school's welcoming environment along with addressing ways to promote social justice and Catholic social teachings. The advisory committee also reviews suggestions and materials that have been received from various stakeholders in our school community.
Founded in 2019, the Seton Catholic Eco Club is dedicated to preserving the environment and raising awareness about how to live an eco-conscious life! Projects include recycling drives, fundraisers, and public service activities.
E-Sports is a way for students to build cooperative, team-based skills and participate on a team. These teams consist of 5 players that face off against other teams from around the state. Our goal of E-Sports is to foster teamwork and learn to make decisions under pressure.
The knitting club has about 15 active members from all grades who meet twice a week to play games, share snacks, and knit scarves and gloves for the homeless.
Mock Trial revolves around the study of a different case each school year. The case is written by Judge Lewis of Clark County and is sent to teams throughout the state. The competitions are sponsored by the YMCA. The case usually comes out around the end of September and the students start to determine which role they would like to play after reading the case and deliberating a bit on the different personalities.
The witness roles entertain a more dramatic side with students playing a “role” and studying the personality of the witness through the statements they have given to the court for evidence. The attorney roles are divided into Prosecution and Defense and students interested in these roles often have aspirations of being an attorney or then see a theme in the one side or the other that they believe they can argue and present well.
After preparing for they case just as attorneys would, preparing questions for witnesses, working with witnesses to get the right reaction from the jury and perfecting pretrial and opening statements and outlining a closing statement from October through February, we face other teams in competition, usually held at the Clark County Courthouse, however, this year it is being held on zoom.
During the competition our Defense team will compete against another school’s Prosecution and vice versa. Real Lawyers volunteer to sit on the “jury” and rate the “performance”. And real Judges volunteer to “hear our cases”. It is really very much like a real courtroom with a few differences. Unlike real trials there are time limits for different parts of the trial so students have to really manage their witnesses and be careful not to use up time that will need for future witnesses.
Awards are presented after several rounds with different teams for best prosecuting attorney, best defense attorney, best witness and best team. The top teams go on to compete in a state competition.
Seton Catholic Mock Trial team began in the 2017-18 school school year. Current coaches are Attorney Kasey Vu, Attorney Laura Mancuso, Satinee Mendez and Andrea Nenzel.
Multi-Cultural Club (MCC)
The Seton Catholic Multi-Cultural Club is open to all students and educates the student body about issues relating to race and diversity while celebrating and seeks to celebrate all ethnic backgrounds and traditions. MCC runs Seton Catholic's Black History month celebrations and assemblies, as well as various service projects and fundraisers throughout the year.
Stock Wisdom & Personal Finance
The main purpose of the Stock Wisdom, Personal Finance club is to learn about the stock market and how it works as well as issues dealing with personal finance like debt, budgeting, etc. Each student begins with a hypothetical $10,000 to invest and we compete with each other over the course of the year to see who can create the most value. This year we had each club member pick three stocks - one long-term investment and two stocks which he/she think could do well once the economy recovers.
