In religion, students take their first steps on the path to developing their Catholic identity. They learn about God through Bible stories, prayer, hymns and attending weekly Mass. We base their learning on the most important rule, the Golden Rule “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matt. 7:12).
Our reading and language arts programs are designed to nurture a lifelong love of reading and communicating. Reading is taught through visual, auditory and kinesthetic modalities such as singing, phonetics and the use of colorful characters in literature. This multi-model technique helps to simultaneously develop better reading and writing skills. Our reading program “Super Kids” uses a technology component that helps students add to their learning experience both in class and at home.
The kindergarten math curriculum focuses on problem-solving and the understanding of fundamental mathematical concepts. Those skills are introduced in a concrete setting using various manipulatives such as blocks, games, dice and other objects to engage young learners. Most important, the concepts are related to student life experiences and how they apply to their own world.
Throughout our science and social studies curriculum, students enjoy various experiences to develop their curiosity about the world around them. Some of those fun activities include planting seeds, graphing daily weather forecasts, making snowflakes along with many other STREAM experiments.
