Plans are well underway for our ninth summer as a host site for Horizons Greater Washington, our first as a fully mature site! We are pleased to report that Grade 1 teacher Tina White, Kindergarten teacher Karen Clement, Grade 5 teacher Chloe Hensold, Upper School music teacher Anne Tyler, and Auxiliary Programs instructor Anne Chandra will bring their exceptional teaching skills to our Horizons students this summer. Grade 3 teacher Rachel Levin and Grade 1 teacher Annie Miller will return to their roles as Site Director and Assistant Site Director, respectively.
Summer is here!! Smell the charcoal and sunscreen. What an opportunity to find a cool spot to curl up with a book!
For St. Patrick's students, summer reading is a pleasure and a habit. Keeping "reading muscles" strong and limber takes time and effort. We expect all students entering Kindergarten through Grade 8 to spend 15 to 30 minutes a day reading to improve their fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension—the BIG THREE ingredients of reading. What should my child read? The exceptional literacy experts at St. Patrick's have created age-appropriate lists for young readers entering each grade.
Exceptional Literacy is the intention and the destination of the educational journey at St. Patrick’s. It prepares each student to seek new knowledge, to fulfill a greater sense of personal responsibility, and to understand and communicate effectively with others. At the forefront of this effort are our talented and dedicated faculty and staff, working in close partnership with families to support each student.
Play-Based Learning in the Nursery School
The intentional, deliberate, and provocative use of play in our Nursery School invites the young child to construct meaning in the present and orients that child to a future of intellectual and academic engagement and success.
