Totino-Grace Lasallian Youth offers students the opportunity to be of service in the local community. Service opportunities take place Monday through Friday following the conclusion of the school day. Whether students prefer spending time with older adults, packaging and serving meals, or reading with younger students, Lasallian Youth service projects are an ideal way to reach out in service to others.
Some of our students make regular commitments at a particular site throughout the year while others volunteer for service projects as they have time in any given week or during a particular season.

Link Ambassadors are members of a high school transition program that welcomes freshmen and transfer students and supports their first year experience at Totino-Grace. As role models, mentors, and student leaders, juniors and seniors build relationships with our newest students to help them discover what it takes to be successful during the transition to high school. Ambassadors quite simply are the faces of Totino-Grace! These students take leadership roles in welcoming and guiding prospective students and families through the Admissions process through a variety of events. Eagle ambassadors play key roles during our school visits to our partner Catholic grade schools, at Admissions’ Open House events (fall and winter), the Placement Exam, Eagle Games, Middle School Fun Night, our 7th Grade Academic Luncheon, and host students who wish to Experience TG. Leaders will develop and fine tune their leadership skills while guiding new students as they discover and experience the outstanding community at Totino-Grace!

The Totino-Grace Mock Trial team provides an opportunity for students who enjoy learning about the law, public speaking, and drama to work together and practice their skills and knowledge. Each season, the team is presented with a case published by the Minnesota State Bar Association to analyze. Cases rotate each year from civil (even numbered years) to criminal (odd numbered years). Students participate in the roles of attorneys and witnesses, presenting their case against another school. Trial competitions are judged by practicing attorneys and occasionally sitting judges and performances of each piece of a trial are scored.

The robotics club is a new, exciting activity offered at Totino-Grace. Robotics is a challenging opportunity to learn 21st century skills in science, mathematics, and engineering. Our robotics members work closely with professional engineers to design, prototype, fabricate, and test a robot for the FIRST Robotics Competition. Each year, we compete against other schools to play a game (2018, 2017, 2016) with our robot that involves picking up objects, throwing objects, and even make the robot climb off the ground. If you're looking for a way to meet new kids, have fun, be challenged, and prepare for college or a career in science...look no further and join robotics!
