The arts are the voice and memory of all communities and all societies. They are a universal language, a unifying force for humanity and an opportunity for our students to express themselves. Holy Rosary School's Art curriculum meets the high expectations of the National and New York State Standards in Art Education. It includes grade-level-appropriate exploration of:
We encourage children to express their own thoughts and emotions through fine art as a way to cultivate creative thinking and emotional development.
Holy Rosary School's music curriculum recognizes that arts are unique forms of knowledge and expression that allow young people to give creative and critical expression to their deepest thoughts and insights about themselves, God and the world. The program meets the National Music Standards and the New York State Standards for the Arts.
We teach the skills and concepts necessary to read, make and appreciate music at every grade level and integrate music into other subjects, including social studies.
At Holy Rosary School, we are committed to educating the mind, the body and the spirit of each of our students. Physical education is an integral part of a child’s total education. The program develops the students’ motor skills and helps them learn the importance of lifetime involvement in physical activity, including individual and team sports, and it’s a fun break from the academic challenges of the day.
We believe that all students can learn exercises and games, regardless of their physical ability. Our teachers offer students choices of engaging activities that enable them to master basic movement and life skills and then progress to more strenuous exercises. The program teaches the value of cooperation, perseverance, and teamwork.
