Catholic Schools week is a very exciting (and busy) time for all Catholic schools. It provides us with an opportunity to “show off” our students and their accomplishments. St. Thomas the Apostle School, in particular, is a place that provides a safe, loving, and disciplined environment while promoting respect for oneself and others. The morals and leadership skills instilled in the children are reflected in their behavior, both in and out of the classroom.
Our enrollment boasts over 400 students, and yet our classrooms still provide individualized attention. Instructional Aides provide additional assistance in every classroom from Pre-K to grade 3. Language Arts and Math Instruction are Common Core based that lends itself to an increase in our Terra Nova scores. Technology, in addition to our new Lab, extends into every classroom in our school through Interactive Boards and hand-held devices.
As Catholic school students, we are very fortunate to be able to attend Masses and Church Services throughout the year. These are not in addition to our students’ education, but an extension of their faith-filled school experience. Hearing them praise God in song and prayer and celebrate the Eucharist together is powerful.
Thank you for your support. It is our hope that our teaching reflects the same loving standards that you set in your homes.
Ms. Joanne Kowit
