Holy Innocents’ Programs for Remediation, Enrichment and Growth
From the youngest to the oldest students, Holy Innocents offers programs that help students develop to their fullest potentials.
Offering a well-rounded education means providing programs that enrich our current school curriculum. Our programs are popular because they are based in Catholic mission, fill a real need for students and families, and provide possibilities for growth in many areas of interest. We invite you to see if one of our programs is right for your children, and to sign them up for a future of possibilities.
Holy Innocents Programs for enrichment and growth
Throughout the year, currently during our 2nd and 3rd quarters, grades 5-8 take weekly elective classes such as drama, guitar, technology and dance. (We hope to include foreign languages, cooking, gardening, etc.)
For our students that excel academically, we have a Junior Academic Decathlon Team. They meet with their respective subject moderators and will compete in the Archdiocesan competition in March.
Our after school extracurricular activities include: boys’ and girls’ basketball, Student Council, Legion of Mary, and Choir.
For students in need of extra tutoring, we offer both teacher and peer instructed tutoring when needed.
We provide morning and afternoon extended care starting at 6:45 am before school and until 6:00 pm after school.
Family Unit Leadership Program
The Family Units Leadership Program trains the eighth graders in assuming responsibility as a “family head” while leading their “family members” (students from Kindergarten to seventh grade) in a religious lessons, an art projects and team building activities. The “family heads” (all eighth grade students) are responsible for write their own lesson plan with the guidance of their religion teacher and the Religion Coordinator, and to be accountable for bringing the supplies needed for their “family”.
All students at Holy Innocents take part in a “family unit”. These opportunities to come together as a family group help students to learn communication and relational skills with their peers, as well as others who are either older or younger. After eight or nine years of participating in the family unit program, students have developed a frame of reference of healthy social skills and “family” interaction.
