Extracurricular Activities & Athletics

Co-Curricular Classes:

Library/Media Center

Students go to the school media center for one hour per week to listen to stories, participate in interactive lessons planned by the media specialist, check out books, and use Google Chromebooks. There is an automated library checkout system, and a wide variety of books and genres are available. Parents may access the list of library books available online.

Music

Students go to music class for one hour per week. Students are introduced to music terminology, elements, and concepts. Along with music history and secular music, liturgical sign language and traditional mass songs are incorporated into the curriculum.

  • Orff Instruments: Our music teacher uses an instructional approach in combining Orff instruments with music, movement, drama, and speech. The music teacher has attended several summer institutes and has an Orff Certification.
  • Bluegrass in the Schools Program: The K-3 Campus participates in the Bluegrass in the Schools program. The Bluegrass Museum schedules an annual assembly featuring a bluegrass band with an educational component to teach students about the history of bluegrass in Kentucky.

Art

Students go to art class for one hour per week. The art curriculum includes an introduction to a variety of materials, techniques, and art concepts. Students create hands-on projects that reflect their individuality and creativity.

STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, the Arts, & Mathematics)

At the K-3 Campus, we incorporate aspects of our Catholic faith into our hands-on, engaging projects in STREAM class.  Students learn innovation and strategic-thinking by creating, designing, and collaborating with peers.  Students apply content knowledge and 21st-century skills including critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity to solve real-world problems.

Physical Education

Students have 20 minutes of physical education every day. Students go outside or to the gym to participate in a variety of activities, including some structured games as well as activities that allow for students to have free play and social interaction with their classmates.

Teachers also provide organized “Brain Breaks” throughout the day that allow children to get up and move for short periods of time in the classroom. Research has shown that this allows young children to be more productive in school.

Athletics:

We believe our responsibility is to develop the whole child-socially, emotionally, academically, and spiritually.  As we look at children in elementary school, their growth is a continuum preparing them for the next stage of their development.  This is true, especially in the area of physical development and participation in organized sports programs.  

The following sports opportunities begin in 3rd grade:

  • Basketball – Boys and Girls
  • Volleyball- Girls
  • Cheerleading

Other Programs:

Junior Achievement

The local Junior Achievement (JA) organization sends in local businessmen and women for a 5-week program teaching economics that ties in with our Social Studies program.
