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.
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 for the first semester. After nine weeks of general music instruction and an assessment of musical aptitude, they are guided to the selection of a musical instruments. Students can opt out of Band at the end of the first semester, and then are given the opportunity to participate in a vocal music class.
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.
