Specials:  students will receive the following specials to enhance their education: art, music, physical education, and library. Two recess periods are included in the full-day curriculum (one recess period in the half-day curriculum). Spanish is also incorporated into daily lesson plans in the preschool program, beginning an introduction to world languages.

*Please note: Children in our 5-day program attend all special classes, while children in our partial day programs attend the classes that fall on the days their chosen program is in session.

Religion: Students are introduced to the story of God’s unfailing love for us through daily bible selections and the Allelu! preschool curriculum. Traditional prayers are also introduced. We seek to put Jesus first in all that we say and all that we do and to lead by example. Students will participate in Mass with the rest of the school 2 times per month beginning after Christmas break.

Creative Art Enrichment: Weekly thematic units are planned for guided art projects and activities. Fine motor tasks incorporate a wide variety of skills so students may explore and enhance their own creativity while making connections to weekly themes.

Literacy/Cognitive Enrichment: Group activities enhance language and thinking skills. Examples include: asking and answering questions, awareness of the concepts of print, and exposure to letter-sound relationships using FUNdations, from Wilson. 

Music/Movement Enrichment: Group games and musical opportunities provide an avenue to develop listening skills, creativity, coordination, turn-taking, patience, and problem-solving.

Science/Sensory Enrichment: Children have a natural desire to learn about the world in which they live. Activities in these areas of the classroom encourage curiosity, critical thinking as well as trial and error. Students will explore, experiment, predict and problem solve while connecting to a variety of instructional themes.

Math Enrichment: Math concepts are built into large group instruction, small group learning, and play-based centers. Concepts that are emphasized in the classroom are one-to-one correspondence, patterns, sorting, counting, number recognition, shapes, and measurement. Mrs. DeGroot provides fun and engaging activities that will lay the foundation for future mathematical success.
