KINDERGARTEN: BIG FIRST STEP

Kindergarteners must be 5 by September 1. Round-up is held in April, and is a great way to make sure your child is ready for the big step into Kindergarten.

If you’re considering PreKindergarten because of your child’s birthday or readiness signals, you might want to check out this parent’s perspective which talks about the practice of “academic red shirting.” We are happy to talk with you to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.


READING UNLOCKS LEARNING

Our reading initiative is designed to help students master the art of reading, so they’ll be well-prepared for learning later on. We dedicate 90-120 minutes of uninterrupted instruction to literacy each day. To learn more about this research-based approach, please visit the Reading area of our website.


WHERE FAITH COMES TO LIFE

Weekly Mass is celebrated each week.  Each class takes turns planning the liturgy and participating in different aspects of Mass, from lectoring to holding Psalm placards. The school week begins with a school-wide praise and worship service in the auditorium entitled, “Fully Rely On God,” or FROG time. Parents and grandparents and other special friends are most welcome!


FIFTH GRADE BAND

All fifth graders are enrolled in Band and attend class three times a week under the instruction of Mr. Charles Taylor. Students begin with recorders during the first semester and transition to musical instruments second semester.  You will be amazed at their concert at the Festival of Arts in May!


UPPER ELEMENTARY IS “EXTRA” SPECIAL

We are blessed with outstanding parent volunteers who enable us to provide a wide range of enrichment opportunities, including keyboarding, Spanish, Robotics, Odyssey of the Mind, Girls on the Run, K-Kids (Kiwanis), Scouts, Hands of Faith, praise choir and athletics.

  • Praise Choir meets on Wednesdays and Thursdays after school until 3:30.
  • Spanish is taught before or after school, three times per week. In this way, we are able to provide students with a valuable elective without compromising instruction time in core/critical areas.
