3rd, 4th & 5th Grades
Our third, fourth, and fifth graders are considered intermediate students. Students are encouraged to demonstrate leadership by reaching out to others in their community. In order for them to be successful, we encourage them to be self-sufficient, reflective thinkers and doers in a spirit of prayer and faithfulness to the Gospel.
We expect the students to be able to read, to learn and to understand. Focus on the following skills provide opportunities for growth: note taking, oral and written reports, research, Bible study, plays, skits, reader’s theater, and public speaking during liturgies and assemblies.
Studies in Religion, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, Environmental Education, and Arts Education aid students as they build new knowledge, make decisions, and solve problems. As a result, students are poised to become future leaders.
Catholic Faith Formation
Students in the intermediate grades are encouraged to put their faith into action as they embark on several projects of service to others. They begin to exhibit Servant Leadership, following the example of Christ.
