Our curriculum in grades K-2 builds the foundation for a traditional Catholic elementary education. Instruction in grammar, phonics, mathematics, and religion provides a focus for our young learners in building key skills that will be applied throughout their education. Curriculum is focused on students learning to read through our structured phonics program, which is scaffolded from Kindergarten to 1st grade to 2nd grade. Instilling a love of the teachings of Jesus Christ, as well as living the Gospel Values, is the cornerstone of our religious instruction, that is woven throughout our curriculum. Kindergarten and First Grade begins the preparation for Second Grade and the receiving of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Our religion curriculum is further enriched by students attending mass every Friday, during the school year.
Kindergarten through grade 2 are self-contained classrooms, teachers plan their daily schedules to include blocks of language arts and math throughout the week to allow additional time for personalized learning rotations, this includes working on a platform using iPads and Chromebooks, as well as hands-on practice and challenge, and small group teacher-led instruction.
Learning more about God’s world, respecting and serving others; our primary students also engage in social studies and science throughout their week. Music, art, physical education, and innovation lab provides our students the opportunity to practice their creativity, problem solving, and build skills that they can apply across the curriculum. Students in grades K-2 are also instructed in the basics of the Spanish language and culture, one day per week.
