We are the St. Isidore Grizzlies!
All St. Isidore activities are supervised by volunteers who have undergone mandatory training under the Pennsylvania Child Protective Services Law and Archdiocesan Policy for the Protection of Children & Young People.
A fun physical education program is part of the St. Isidore curriculum. We also have healthy, family oriented events such as a 5K fundraiser and Field Day, but we also offer opportunities for competitive team play.
In conjunction with the parish’s CYO, students participate in sports including:
- Fall: Cross Country, Girls’ Volleyball, Football*
- Winter: Basketball
- Spring: Baseball, Track
Additional information and registration links about other sports are available on the St. Isidore CYO page.
Football is offered through SASH Crusaders with JV for Fifth and Sixth grades and Varsity for Seventh and Eighth grades. Click through to their site for more information.
Hockey is offered for students in grades 4 through 8 through the Lansdale Catholic Hockey Club. Any boy or girl (of any skill level) attending an area Catholic school who is interested in playing or just trying hockey is encouraged. Equipment is provided. We have teams for both experienced and beginning players. For more information call Joe Volpe at 215-407- 7111 or email LCicehockey@comcast.net.
Every student receives music instruction as part of the St. Isidore curriculum which leads to two concerts each year: one before Christmas and one in the Spring. Early Childhood classes have a separate concert from our Elementary and Middle school students. Some Elementary and Middle school students have the opportunity to be cast for lead speaking, performing and/or dancing roles. Recent productions have included selections from musicals such as Annie, Godspell, and Disney’s Cinderella.
All Third grade students learn and perform with recorders as part of an introductory musical instrument program. Instruments and instructional scores are provided by our Parents As Partners organization (PAPA). They perform at the concerts and during special events such as the Thanksgiving Feast.
In addition, parents can sign children up for group music lessons through Northeastern Music Programs starting in Third grade. Instruments taught include flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, percussion and violin. These musicians are also featured in our biannual concerts. Instrument rentals are available through Menchey Music.
Fourth and Fifth grade musicians are encouraged to audition for the Archdiocese Festival Band. Sixth through Eighth grade musicians can audition for Honor Band. More information is at Archdiocesan Elementary Music.
Clubs / Social Events

- After school Science Explorers camp
Girl Scouts – Catholic Girl Scouting has a long tradition at St. Isidore School and Parish. We currently have Daisy (K/1st), Brownie (2nd/3rd), Senior (9th/10th), and Ambassador (11th/12th) troops that are associated with the parish and considered “St. Isidore” troops.
What makes parish scouts different is that we have a focus on our faith and incorporate it into the Girl Scout Promise and Law. Our leaders have all the clearances and trainings required by the Archdiocese, along with the Girl Scout ones. Many troops and girls have worked on and earned local and national Catholic Girl Scout Religious Programs and have been awarded medals and recognition at the Archdiocese’s annual Mass through the Office of Youth and Young Adults – Catholic Committee on Girl Scouts and Campfire Girls. Catholic Girl Scouting is celebrated each March at the Girl Scout Sunday Mass. All Girl Scouts from the parish are invited to participate whether they are in our St. Isidore Parish Troops or a Quakertown Community troop.
Social Events – Our Parents As Partners Association (PAPA) sponsors a variety of social activities throughout the year. Many of these have become cherished traditions like:
Breakfast with Santa
Daddy Daughter Dance
