Future City starts with a question—how can we make the world a better place? To answer it, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students imagine, research, design, and build cities of the future that showcase their solution to a citywide sustainability issue. Past topics include stormwater management, urban agriculture, public spaces, and green energy. The 2017-2018 theme is The Age-Friendly City. Teams will identify an age-related challenge that exists in today's urban environments and engineer two innovative solutions that allow their future city's senior citizens to be as active and independent as they want to be.

Harmonium is an upper level chorus consisting of 6th, 7th and 8th graders. Anyone can join – there is no audition, except for voice placement (low-medium-high voice).
Harmonium meets once a week, at 12:05 PM.
Harmonium prepares for a December concert and a May concert, as well as musically supporting special school Liturgies during the year.
The experience of being in Harmonium develops a student’s self-confidence, whether it be just doing something in front of people, to being able to handle a solo during a song or Mass. Everyone has a different comfort level to begin with. And they can springboard from there, to try new types of performance and creativity in designing a performance.
Members of Harmonium have even formed small bands which accompany the songs at Mass, or perform in our shows. They have the opportunity to spread their musical wings and compose an arrangement of a song for us to possibly perform! They also support the chorus playing other percussion instruments, from tambourines to tone-chimes.
There’s something for everyone in Harmonium!
