Through our Catholic lens, students are encouraged to express their own unique styles as they explore a variety of art mediums and learn about past and present artists, and historical art movements. Each project focuses heavily on the CREATIVE PROCESS with emphasis on developing skills and understanding applicable art elements and design principles while working toward a specific objective.
Each grade level receives once a week art sessions throughout the year, covering mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, fiber arts, collage, sculpture, and digital art.
Library Skills class begins with the class in prayer asking to learn God's “truth by the books we read and the information we explore.” Each class period includes a read-aloud, lesson with activity, and time for finding a book to checkout.
Kindergarten-3rd grade students listen to a picture book which is the springboard for the class lesson. In grades 4th-7th, the students listen to a chapter of a novel, are taught a lesson on the weekly theme, and then do the assignment in class-many times utilizing Google Classroom.
There are four overarching themes for the year: Library Expectations, Databases and Technology, Literature Appreciation and STEAM. Technology, social studies and religious themes are weaved throughout with a service type project each quarter to promote community mindedness and citizenship. Striving to be modern day saints is a common thread woven throughout the curriculum beginning with the Saint of the Week.
Preschool story times on Fridays include a song and read-aloud.
8th grade students are in Technology Class where they receive lessons using the Code.org curriculum.
Please see the Library website for more information.
Do not forget about the Birthday Book Club (BBC)! The goal of the BBC is to help you honor your children on their birthdays. It is also a way to add great books to our library collection. Anyone can participate in this program: parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles.
