Building A Strong Foundation In Math, Science And Language
And Beyond With Art, Music, Computer And Spanish Classes
At St. Francis, our primary program teaches the Catholic faith through stories, daily and sacramental prayer. We believe that religion is the foundation of every great education.
The program, which runs from kindergarten through second grade, is focused on giving students the skills to continue building their core reading, math and science capabilities.
Learn more about each subject’s educational focus:
Math And Reading
We use Houghton-Mifflin for both our reading and math instructional materials. Our reading program is focused on helping emerging readers improve their budding skills and take on more challenging material. Our math curriculum uses a dynamic blend of technology and traditional teaching materials to help each student master math concepts.
Online tools are used to measure engagement and assessment. This information helps us work with each student to expand their reading and math abilities.
Science is taught with a hands-on approach. Concepts such as the scientific method are introduced to students through age-appropriate experiments.
Students learn about themselves, their families and the community through their social studies lessons. They see how they fit within each of these different groups and the roles they play within their communities.
Each student’s handwriting knowledge grows, first with an emphasis on printing, then moving into cursive handwriting lessons in second grade.
Spanish, Art, Computer And More
In addition to a focus on the core academic subjects, students also expand their knowledge with a wide variety of lessons in Spanish, art, music, computer, library and physical education every week.
