One of the benefits that Regis Middle School and Regis High School students have is the opportunity to be involved in multiple activities at once.
Many students are in a few clubs, activities and athletics all at the same time.
This allows our students to expand their interests, rather than just being an athlete or just being a musician, for example.
Academic Challenge, the "Varsity Sport of the Mind," is a program to prepare Regis students to compete against other high school teams in general knowledge question-and-answers at several tournaments during the school year. If interested, contact Mr. John Snyder in Room 234 or at (715) 830-2271, ext. 1234.
The team meets on Wednesday nights from September to April.
Art Club exists for the purpose of allowing students who cannot fit art classes into their schedules to experience the joy of the creative process. Club members decide on which projects/media they wish to explore and once a week they come together after school to work.
The Regis High School Choir is an ensemble that provides students with the experience of working together towards a variety of social and musical goals. The choir performs music of many styles and periods throughout the year and performs in a minimum of four concerts, including a fall concert, Christmas concert, Pops concert and spring concert.
In addition, each student has the opportunity to study a solo piece for the WSMA Solo and Ensemble Festival in individual lessons, usually beginning in the spring semester.
The choir also performs for a number of all-school Masses, at holiday parties and luncheons and annually in the WSMA Large Group Choral Festival at Memorial High School in April.

The choir also tours every two years, having performed in cities such as Chicago and New York City in the past.
During non-touring years, the students have the opportunity to attend a musical or dinner theatre performance, usually in the Twin Cities.
Being a member of the Regis Choir provides students with wonderful musical and cultural experiences.
Forensics is a co-curricular activity that provides students with an opportunity to develop, practice and master skills in public speaking and/or acting.
The annual informational meeting is held mid-December marks the unofficial start of the Forensics season. Practice begins in early January and then the race is on to choose a category, find a suitable composition and master its performance so as to convince a panel of judges that the efforts earn a trip to Madison.
Most of the season's ten tournaments are held on Saturdays. The season peaks in February and March; however, students qualifying for state or national competition may continue performing until the end of April or May.
Ms. Judine Brey is the coach and welcomes any adult members of the Regis family who are willing to help judge and chaperon meets.
The Wisconsin Mock Trial Tournament was established by the Wisconsin Bar Association twenty years ago. High school students from all over the state meet in February and March for the Regional and State competitions.
The twelve-person teams consist of three student attorneys, six witnesses and three alternates. A teacher coach and one or more attorney coaches assist the students. The cases are either civil or criminal and change each year.
The goal of the program is to create a greater awareness and appreciation of the legal system and the role of the individual within a free society. Students learn to make decisions based on logic, rather than emotion, and become better equipped to deal with controversy and conflict.
The Multi-Cultural International Club (MIC) provides students the opportunity to interact with persons of other cultures. There is a commitment to heighten awareness, appreciation of and respect for cultural diversity.

The purpose of the Spanish Club is to create opportunities for students to practice Spanish conversation and increase their exposure to the culture and customs of Spanish-speaking people in the United States and around the world. To this end, activities such as a Spanish luncheon, lectures, guest speakers, films and trips to local restaurants and performances may be planned.
All Regis students who are currently enrolled in Spanish, as well as those who are not but have completed at least two years of high school Spanish, may join the Spanish Club.
Meetings are held monthly during advisory periods, with most activities planned for after school hours.
The Regis High School Student Government group is made up of four Student Council officers and representative from each Advisory group.
The Student Government group meets once a month.
It helps with all-school fundraisers, sponsors a dance in December, presents student concerns to the administration and serves as an advisory body for the administration.
Tech Club will meet Tuesday's after school until 4:30 in the computer lab.
Memebers spend the meetings in a team building and programming Lego robots to solve weekly problems. Each year we attend a competition in Rochester, MN in December where teams demonstrate the program they wrote to solve a long-term problem. Teams are then given a short-term project which requires them to solve a problem from start to finish during a set amount of time. After building, programming, and testing their robot, the teams demonstrate their solution for the judges or compete head-to-head.
Students can also use their time during the weekly meetings to design objects that can be 3D printed using the printer in the computer lab.

Each year, Regis presents one full-length play during the fall semester. Students are given the opportunity to build and enhance their talents in the areas of acting and/or scenic and technical production.

There are typically no weekend rehearsals, but they may be scheduled if needed.

From tournament play to social play, competitors are given the chance to achieve at a level with which they are comfortable.
