Emphasis is placed on how Jesus plays a pivotal role in our daily lives. This sharing of faith includes: instruction in scripture; the experience of prayer and liturgy; the ability to relate teachings to life experiences; the knowledge of the rich heritage we share in time, place and people; and the profound respect for and love of the Catholic Church.

Language Arts/Literature
Literature is used for oral reading, vocabulary, comprehension, decoding skills, inferences, and critical reading/thinking strategies. Textbooks as well as novels are used to accomplish these goals. The major areas of the English curriculum include: writing, grammar, correct usage, mechanics, dictionary and library skills, speaking and listening skills, and literature. The “Six Traits of Writing” are utilized in the writing process.
