K-6 Curriculum

 
Our Curriculum
 
At St. Mary Catholic School, we offer a well-balanced, comprehensive curriculum for 3K through grade 6. The curriculum revolves around the religious dimension of the school, focusing on learning, prayer, and service. Our sound academic platform is centered on reading, writing, math, science, and the arts based on the Diocese of Green Bay and Wisconsin State Standards. We are implementing the Common Core State Standards in the curriculum as they become available. We also emphasize handwriting and phonics. Our goal is to meet and exceed these curriculum standards.
 
Academic Materials
 
We constantly and carefully evaluate the effectiveness of existing and new materials. Textbooks are kept current.
 
Music, Art and Foreign Language
 
We realize the importance of integrating the arts into our curriculum in order to create well-rounded students, nurture talents, and enhance learning. All children attend music, art and foreign language classes weekly. Moreover, art projects are integrated into lessons across the curriculum. 
 
Religious Education
 
A spiritual environment is provided in which students can better understand, experience, live and apply their faith. All instructors are religion certified through the Diocese of Green Bay. Students are offered sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Communion. Mass is celebrated with all students on Tuesdays and on special holy days. Students participate in reconciliation about once per month and Stations of the Cross during Lent. Students take active roles in planning and participating in the liturgy as servers, readers, gift bearers, and choir members. Liturgies become meaningful even for the youngest students. The pastor, Father Philip Dinh-Van-Thiep, prepares engaging SMART Board presentations for students weekly.
 
Special Needs
 
Students with special needs have access to a speech therapist, reading specialist, and school psychologist. Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows for individualized attention daily. Your child has the opportunity to excel toward his/her learning potential.
 
Student Success
 

Students from St. Mary Catholic School have consistently ranked among the top ten in their high school graduating class, with many more in the top 25% of their class.
