Church and Parish
Holy Rosary students learn how to put their Christian values to work for the good of the parish community. Students are encouraged to participate in the parish through several age-appropriate activities such as the children's choir, altar serving, and several charitable service opportunities to help serve the parish.
Music education has many benefits. A few of those include the development of: language and reasoning skills, a sense of teamwork, self-confidence, and achievement. Students at Holy Rosary participate in music classes twice a week and participate in a choir beginning in first grade. In fifth grade and beyond, students have the opportunity to take instrumental lessons.
Arts and Crafts
Art activities are an important part of our early childhood program as well as elementary classes. Art provides our students with the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings. Arts lessons are often integrated into other curricular areas such as book making and creative writing.
The Roncalli Art Outreach Program visits our 1st through 4th grade classes once a month to explore prominent artists and teach art lessons. Using mediums such as clay, oil, pastels, and paints, these high school art students teach our students a variety art techniques.
From props to costumes, to memorizing lines, each spring our students use their theatrical talent to present a school play to the local community. Involvement in theatre helps develop language skills, allows for self-expression, fosters self-confidence, and helps students build relationships with fellow classmates.
