The elementary years are a time of amazing growth and discovery, both academically and spiritually. STSJP students are guided through these years by caring teachers and staff.
Academically, these years are crucial. Reading, writing and math skills learned will be used throughout the child's life. STSJP utilizes curriculum and teaching methods to reach students with varied learning styles. Students explore their world through the study of science and social studies, and are enriched through art, music, computers, gym and library with licensed teachers.
Spiritually, children grow in their relationships with Christ. Sacramental preparation and participation are a key component of our school. Students are actively involved in the celebration of Mass. Prayer throughout the day reminds students of God's presence in their lives.
Socially, students grow as individuals and learn to recognize others as individuals. Students learn to make decisions in the context of their faith, guided by the teachings of Christ. At STSJP, students may begin participating in school athletics in fourth grade, providing another venue for personal growth.
