Joachim and Anne students displayed the St. Julie Billiart Sunflower STREAM Project at the Aquinas Exposition 2017. Van Gogh’s Sunflowers -five flowers in a vase has been the most visited painting in England. These flowers are bursting with meaning while representing the natural cycle of life with a supernatural glow. His flowers along with St, Julie Billiart’s inspiration energized the students to use Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math into developing the many facets of the project. Mr. Corso, our Assistant Principal, was the Moderator. SsJA’s Proud Aquinas Members are: Angie Bermeo, Rousseau Francois, Chelsea Mullings, Jessica Casamajor, Lauren Hedge, Jared King, Jonathan Laura, Divia Myers, Ashley Predvil ,Shelsy Fils Aime and Melodie Cadichon. Congratulations to All!!!
The focus from the Early Childhood Program and Middle School Program continues in the Junior High Program but with added complexities. Drawing upon a foundation of our Catholic core values in the Notre Dame Tradition, students have a context with which to evaluate information and solutions. Challenges to what they once assumed or acknowledged as truth or right and wrong become opportunities for engagement and learning, as our students develop into lifelong scholars
Curriculum, at this level, focuses on critical thinking skills and how to problem solve. Learning how to use text and research to defend a position or stance is an integrated concept throughout all content areas. The use of the Internet connected to Tablets and SmartBoards are woven into the daily learning process and within every content area.
As we shape the future of our students at SsJA, we are concerned with leading them to understand and to live Christianity with respect to our six core values of goodness, faith, excellence, integrity, community and service; to become informed and active citizens namely through community service; such as the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, while maintaining a global perspective as we prepare them for leadership, critical thinking and problem solving skills they’ll need for future endeavors.
