7th grade buddies up with Pre-K and 8th grade buddies up with K. The buddies attend field trips together, sit together at school Masses, participate in special activities together such as in-class Halloween, Christmas and Easter parties, and are team members at Pep Rallies. Through the buddy system, our St. Timothy School students enhance the school’s sense of community and family and learn responsibility, empathy, big brother/big sister skills, how to be a role model and leadership. The buddy system also encourages students to stay in contact with their buddies as each of them progress through their educational careers.

The St. Timothy School newspaper was created in 2014 and is published every quarter by a team of middle school students who serve as Editor, Layout and Design, Staff Writer, Photographer etc. for each issue. Students work collaboratively to decide on the articles for each edition and each year the newspaper has grown in content and ideas.

Members of the school newspaper team also go on field trips to various real life newsrooms that have included NBC news, the LA Times and the UCLA Daily Bruin.

St. Timothy School’s Academic Decathlon team is made up of 6th – 8th grade students, working together as a team in the areas of logic and the Super Quiz and focusing individually on a specialized subject.
