Register for Sports

For those who have at least one child in the public school system:

  1. Go to your Schoolview account, select "Fee Pay", then select "Activities."
  2. In the upper right hand corner of the screen you will be asked to select one of your children.  If you select your middle school student, you will get a message that the student is not enrolled, and your attempt to register becomes a dead-end. If, however, you choose one of your children that is enrolled in the public school, you should come to a screen that lists all of your children and what they are eligible to register for. You can register any of your children from that page.
  3. Remember that there are several pages of activities, so if you don't see the activity you want on page one, scroll through the other pages until you find the middle school activity you are looking for.
  4. Also, note that you need to have a valid sports physical on file with the appropriate activities director at the correct school, before the system will let you register.  

For those that do not have a child in the public school system:

  1. Go to stma.feepay.com and click on activities. You should come to a page that asks you to create a FeePay account.  Go ahead and create a new FeePay account.
  2. As you fill out the information asked for, you will eventually be able to add your children as family members. You will need to obtain your son or daughter's District identification number. To get that number, please call Jody Johanson at 763-497-6500 ext. 94357.  Jody is one of our tech support people and has access to your student's ID numbers.
  3. Once you have created your account and added your children as family members, you should be able to register.
  4. Remember that there are several pages of activities, so if you don't see the activity you want on page one, scroll through the other pages until you find the middle school activity you are looking for.
  5. Also, note that you need to have a valid sports physical on file with the activities director, before the system will let you register. 

 

Sports Supervision & Transportation

 Since the beginning of our 5-8 middle level program, we have proudly provided free after school supervision and transportation for students participating in activities through STMA schools.  We are committed to continuing this tradition and valuable service for our families.

After several variations of what the supervised time has looked like in the past, and upon receiving feedback from families, we are creating a space that will be dedicated to homework.  Students utilizing this service will follow the schedule outline below:

1:55 – 2:05    Check In

2:05 – 2:20     Snack / Opportunity to change clothes for practice

2:20 – 2:47     Supervised Mandatory Study Hall

2:47 – 2:50     Pack Up / Dismissed to Buses

As indicated in the schedule, the supervised time is designed as a structured study hall, not a free choice time. If students do not have homework, they may draw or read quietly during this time. With the exception of computers for those completing homework online, no electronics will be allowed. Staff supervising are not responsible for checking homework, making sure homework is complete, or working one on one with students. Staff will do their best to help answer homework questions students may have. Students will not be scheduled to go outside or to the gym during this brief time.

Supervision and transportation is a privilege; students are not required to stay after school. Behavior expectations from 1:55-until the start of practice at their assigned location are the same as during the school day.  If a student does not follow our rules of being safe, welcoming, and respectful, or the rules of the partner school, they are subject to the following consequences:

First Offense:      Email to parent/guardian

Second Offense: Phone call to parent/guardian and loss of supervision/transportation for the following practice/game day

Third Offense:     Suspended from supervision/transportation for 2 weeks or until the end of the season, whichever is longer.  Two week suspension would carry over into the next activity, if applicable.  (The student would be welcome to sign up for transportation/supervision the following season, but a parent meeting with the School Programs Director would be required before the start of that season.)

 At anytime, if warranted, StMCS staff may partner with STMA in resolving discipline matters.

To sign up for this service, our supervision/transportation request form can be found online at:  https://form.jotform.com/82216310090140

Other Reminders

  • Complete the online supervision/transportation form every time you register for an activity.  The form is only valid for one activity.
  • Parents (or students) must contact the School Programs Director at least 1 day in advance if a practice/game has been changed to a day your child is not normally scheduled to use the service.  (The reason for this is that staff is scheduled based on the daily number of participants. Therefore, if a student stays without advance notice on a day they were not scheduled, they will need to call a parent/guardian to be picked up.)
  • We do our best to notify students/families as soon as practices or games are cancelled. Please check the STMA activities website as this is the first place the activities directors post information when changes happen. Please do not call the STMA offices, StMCS or the parish.
  • Eligibility to play sports for StMCS students is the same as STMA policies. You can find our policy in your child’s planner.
