Primary teachers at St. Margaret Mary Catholic School provide a warm, nurturing learning environment, while guiding students through Religion, English Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science lessons. Students grow in faith by attending and planning Mass with their classmates, learning about the teachings of the Catholic Church, and growing in relationship with Jesus. Literacy instruction includes the utilization of Orton Gillingham methods to strengthen students’ phonemic awareness and phonics skills, while forming a strong language foundation. Research-based instruction includes the use of hands-on manipulatives, educational technology and engaging centers. Special Area classes, including P.E., Computer, Art, Music, Library, and Spanish, help to encourage the education and development of the whole child.
