Clubs and Organizations
Z club is an all-girls community service organization. The club is designed to provide opportunities for young ladies to develop communication and leadership skills, explore career alternatives, and increase their international awareness and understanding through service. Zonta clubs sponsor Z clubs, and provide students with the resources, information, and guidance they need to improve the world around them. Z club students then plan, organize, and participate in unique activities that give them hands-on experiences in improving the lives of others at both a local and international level.
Middle & Upper School Robotics
The Robotics Club is open to all middle school and upper school students. No prior coding experience is necessary, and all materials are provided. Students learn how robots are built and controlled and participate in challenges. These challenges allow students the opportunity to design and program a robot to successfully complete tasks. Participants also have the opportunity to compete in the fall and spring Region VII Robotics Challenge which consists of two separate events – an engineering challenge and a course challenge. Both events use the LEGO Mindstorms robot kit. This fall’s competition is “The Tall Texas Tail of the Doughty Dewayne Dudley Dwight Delaware Do-Wrong” and features such tasks as programming the robot to follow a line using the EV3’s color sensors and lift plastic eggs and place them in a carton.
Private Schools Interscholastic Association is an academic program for lower and middle school students in grades 1 – 8. Students meet weekly to prepare for competitions that include events such as One-Act Play, Mathematics, Science, and Creative Writing. Coaches work with the students to ready them for the District Meet held in March. Students that place first or second in the local meet move on to the State Meet held in May at Texas Christian University.

Upper School History Club
Upper School Student Government
The Upper School Student Government is an organization designed to support the upper school student population while making sure the whole school gets involved. Officers are elected each year at the Upper School Spring Retreat organized by the outgoing officers. Throughout the year, they work together to promote unity and service among the students at TST. The Student Government promotes school spirit by organizing games for the pep rallies, activities for Homecoming week, and dress up days for Red Ribbon week. Student Government officers attend leadership conferences to become the best examples they can be for the students at TST. The Upper School Student Government gives back to the community each year by spear heading the Thanksgiving Canned Food Drive for our school.
Crocheting for a Cause
Crocheting for a Cause is a wonderful opportunity for TST students to not only learn the craft of crocheting but also learn empathy as they donate handmade blankets to critically ill patients in the Longview area. Fourth grade students will be donating to pediatric patients, middle school students will be donating to dialysis patients, and upper school students will be donating to cancer patients.
