We educate the WHOLE child
St. Madeleine Sophie School prides itself on its excellent academic reputation which is enhanced by many special area classes and extra-curricular activities. Spanish is taught to our students beginning in our 4- year- old Pre-K and continues through 5th grade. Music, Physical Education and Library are also enjoyed by all our students. Instrument lessons and Band are offered to students in grades 2-5 and Art is taught to our Kindergarten through Fifth graders. All students participate in STREAM classes which incorporate all these subject areas -Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math to stretch the minds of our students.
After school we offer a variety of opportunities for our children to express themselves and share their gifts and talent with others through Drama Club, Bowling, Student Council, School Liturgy Choir, Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8 Club, and Technology Club.
Recently our Art Teacher, Chris Moran explored and discussed ways of creating a Family Portrait. Using the Maya Angelou quote “I sustain myself with the love of my family” as inspiration, the students were asked to think about how their family sustains them in everyday life. Each student brought in photos of their families that were used as a guide and resource in creating these familial images. A variety of materials and techniques were left in young but capable hands to bring these loving moments to life!
With every child creating a masterpiece it was difficult, but Ms. Moran and a team chose 30 pieces to display at Siena College for the annual Martin Luther King Invitational. Our student display was incredibly impressive, and apparently the committee agreed choosing Third grader Oliva Dagostino’s piece to be the poster for the event!
We pride ourselves in educating the whole child, assisting each child in reaching their full potential in all aspects of their lives. We invite you to see just how our family can compliment yours, at our Open House events and through social media. Please contact us for more information about our amazing school community! Open House Sunday, January 27th 10:30am-12 noon, and Wednesday, January 30th 5:00-7:00pm.
