Kindergarteners are Learning to Love Learning!
Students learn to Love and Serve God & Others by:
Recognizing Bible stories and how they apply to everyday life.
Demonstrating knowledge of Catholic prayers and mass responses.
Articulating grade level church doctrine, history, and moral issues.
Participating in and reflect on age-appropriate service learning projects.
Attending masses with Fr. Leo, school wide drives for the homeless, and special prayer services by grade level.
Students Love Learning:
Through the Common Core Standards in ELA & Math, Social Studies Standards, FOSS Science kits & investigations, Religious textbooks, and their writing journals.
Through various series of experiences that lead to many "aha!" moments in their first year of schooling.
By having opportunities to explore things on their own at school, home, in the outdoors, and in the real-world.
When they are engaged in meaningful conversations during the day in order for children to develop their own love and joy for learning.
By having ample opportunities to read, learn, and have fun with their 5th grade buddy all year long!
Students Learn to Love One's Self by:
Loving their family, friends, themselves, animals, our planet, and by being an upstander.
Sharing their responses every morning during circle time for the question of the day.
Participating in school church families with various grade levels, having a special lunch buddy each day, and by learning about other families in the school.
Learning their own cultures through multiple in-class projects, learning about other cultures, being student of the week, learning about various holidays around the world, and at the end of the year students create a diorama project that reflects their own culture.
