Our second grade goal is to help your children grow academically, especially by strengthening their reading foundation and expanding their math framework. In addition, we will do everything possible to guide them to become individuals we can be proud of by teaching about our faith and preparing them for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. And finally we hope to instill in them a curiosity and a desire to learn... while having lots of fun!
Early Literacy Team
As educators we are dedicated to the continued exploration of innovative teaching modalities to help inform our pedagogy in the humanities and literacy curricular. Students are offered the opportunity to read, write and explore various genres of literature to foster a love of reading and draw connections between subject and content areas. Recognizing that students in grades K to 3 are learning to read while students in grades 4 and above are reading to learn, faculty participate in a variety of professional development opportunities that promote phonetic awareness and continue to develop reading and writing across the curricula. These programs will aid in providing differentiated instruction for students at all levels of learning.
