St. Catherine Labour? employs a variety of methods to implement a standards based curriculum of the Archdiocese of Washington. These include teacher lectures, whole class discussions, cooperative learning groups, journals, videos, peer tutoring, and skills grouping. Information technology is incorporated at varying levels in the classrooms.
As a Catholic school we celebrate Mass at the beginning of the school year and throughout the school year. Confession is offered on a monthly basis to the students. Parish priests are a familiar presence in our school.
Every morning after prayer, our students recite the Values Code. This is a values-based initiative that teachers incorporate into their lessons and the students learn to recognize and use in their daily lives.
Homework is assigned to reinforce classroom instruction. The volume of work assigned increases incrementally as the student progresses from grade to grade. Each teacher provides, through Internet access, ongoing class and homework assignments. These classpages are accessible at www.yourclasspage.com using the password 3019461717 (the school phone number).
Assessments, formal and informal, are administered regularly. Students will receive a progress report halfway through the quarter and report cards are issued to all students quarterly. The TerraNova standardized test is administered in grades two through eight in the spring.
