Each week, students in grades K-8 learn to read, write, speak, and listen in Spanish. We explore cultures and traditions in Spanish-speaking countries. Our goal is to create a love of language that extends well beyond the walls of our school.
All students are offered the opportunity to explore the musical arts. Every students performs at least once a year in a music program or the junior high musical. Students learn to sing, play classroom instruments, read rhythms and note names, and develop an appreciation for the music in their lives.
Creating art increases right brain intuitive thinking and helps develop problem-solving ability in children. Art at St.Louis provides students a hands on opportunity to explore the elements and principles of design. Students will create two dimensional art using watercolors, oil pastels, charcoal, pencil, acrylic, and more. Three-dimensional art will include clay, carving ,weaving, printmaking and collage. Students will learn techniques, art vocabulary and corresponding art history as they create their projects. Students also learn how to accept and give criticism as well as develop good craftsmanship in their work.
Every student K-8 has PE class once a week. We learn teamwork, sportsmanship, the value of God in all things, and different sports/skills. We mix up our skills we learn every year, and advance the skill to challenge them the older they are. This keeps the body and mind growing and wanting more PE.
