In addition to our strong academic curriculum the students at Holy Rosary also receive an equally strong education in the Fine Arts. Beginning in our 3K preschool class and continuing through middle school the students attend Art, PE, Music, Computer and Library weekly. In addition, the middle school students have the opportunity to have an elective and add an additional specialty class to their schedule.
Students work with different art mediums throughout the year to create wonderful pieces of art. Several students participate in local art contests within the community and Holy Rosary can boast that we have some talented artists within our walls.
The Music department puts on two shows a year that include all students from Kindergarten through 5th grade. Students have the chance to play different instruments in class and learn about a wide range of music.
Students attend computer lab once a week beginning in Preschool. The students also have access to the computer lab throughout the day for additional research and for taking Accelerated Reading exams.
The HR Library strives to promote a lifelong love of reading for the students. Each fall the Library hosts the Scholastic Book Fair which is a popular time in the library. The Library does provide a collection of instructional materials that support and contribute to the curriculum as well as class assignments, homework, and individual personal growth. Students in Preschool through fifth grade attend Library once a week. Sixth through eighth grade students utilize the Library as needed for additional support for their classwork and studies.
Through stretching and various physical activities the students understand the importance of exercise for a healthy lifestyle. In addition, students also participate in the President’s physical fitness challenge each year.
