PreK-3 uses the I Am Special program for Religion. Through songs, storytelling of Scripture, prayers, finger-plays, games, and art activities the children learn about God’s love.
Prayer, liturgical events on the Church calendar, the Holy Family, the lives of the saints, the Mass, the parish, and family life are topics taught as part of our religion curriculum.
Students use books and their environment to connect mathematics, science, social studies and Religion.
Students count, compare and sort by shape, size, weight, color and texture. The calendar, the days of the week and months of the year are also taught.
