The elementary school years at Nativity are defined by discovery and self-realization.
From Kindergarten through 5th Grade, children observe and note patterns in the natural world through scientific exploration, art, composition, math, and literature. They build cultural understanding through social studies and Spanish. Imagination and creativity are encouraged with the personal interpretation of each child and the celebration of diverse ideas. Through the study of their faith, children learn the priority of love and respect. Christian morality, virtues, and the presence of Jesus are evident in prayer, discussion and outreach. As a finishing touch, the music at Nativity puts a song in their hearts!
