A healthy balance of work and play....
Our Elementary School (1-5) curriculum addresses the needs of the whole child - their intellectual, social/emotional, creative, physical, and spiritual development. Teachers combine their knowledge with students' interests to promote an academically rich and creative environment. Because young minds are highly inquisitive, our Lower School emphasizes the basics - language arts, literature, religion, social studies, science and mathematics. Weekly classes in Spanish, music, visual/performance arts, physical education, and media/technology complete our program.
Opportunities are continually available for individual and collaborative learning as each child's skills are developed. From first grade on, weekly, hands-on experiences in not only the core content areas, but also in the fine arts allow our students to become well rounded as we continue to build a positive foundation for their learning and curiosity to grow.
We have high expectations for our students, and they constantly surprise us with their attitudes and achievements at an early age. Regular homework assignments in the Elementary School help establish organizational skills and discipline they will need to be successful in the future. Social skills and conflict resolution based on the Responsive Classroom philosophy are modeled daily. We are always mindful that a child's early years are critical in forming attitudes toward God, themselves, others, and learning. The fact that each grade is self-contained enables these attitudes to develop in safe and positive ways. Faculty members come to know each child's strengths and weaknesses very well, and continually create opportunities for support, guidance, and tools for growth.

Thank you for all of your donations for the Blessing Bags and our St. Margaret of Scotland book drive!
Please be sure to be practicing winter clothes self-help skills, such as: zipping coats, putting on hats and gloves after your child's coat is on AND zipped. If a coat is inside out, practice getting the arms turned the right way independently. Our goal is to have the children independently dressing for recess to ensure they get as much time outside as possible. On that same note, we are trying to have the children do this independently so we are able to get outside for dismissal on time.
Thank you for your continued support!
