With an emphasis on respect, good sportsmanship, and always trying their best, athletics are an integral component of our students’ well-being and emotional and physical development. Whether in our physical education classes, on the playground during recess, or in organized sports, we place a high value on making sure all of our students are afforded the opportunity to participate and grow in this valuable arena.

Girls on the Run
Girls on the Run (GOTR) is a positive youth development program that inspires young girls to stay true to themselves and live free from social stereotypes. Saint Thomas More School holds a fall and a spring session of GOTR. The program is open to girls in 3rd through 5th grades who attend Saint Thomas More School.
The fall and spring sessions cover different topics and lessons with subject matter ranging from nutrition, to confidence in themselves and their beliefs, and discussions about bullying. After the lesson, the girls train together for a 5K race that is held at the end of the 10-week session. At Saint Thomas More School, the GOTR team always finds a worthy individual or charity for a race dedication. The group collects items or money to help that cause. Past seasons’ recipients include PAWS Atlanta, Shepherd Spinal Center, Beacon of Hope, and the Wounded Warrior Project.
Middle School Athletic Feeder Programs
A variety of additional sports including wrestling, basketball, football, baseball, volleyball, track, and cheerleading are available to our students through our relationship with local Catholic high schools such as St. Pius X and Marist High School.
