ST. JAMES EPISCOPAL SCHOOL'S ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS
Students will attend one enrichment class daily.
"Episcopal schools are created to be communicates that honor, celebrate, and worship God as the center of Life" (from the National Association of Episcopal Schools). The chapel program is the most obvious symbol of what makes an Episcopal school unique! We pray, we sing, and we always say the Lord's Prayer. The traditions of other denominations and faith groups are respected, and the school welcomes families of all religious faith groups and Christian denominations. Episcopal school worship embraces the full breadth of the human family.
Religion - Godly Play
The Godly Play approach helps children explore their faith through story, to gain religious language and to enhance their spiritual experience through wonder and play.
Music and Movement
Students will have the opportunity to listen to music, play instruments, experiment with sound, move their bodies and participate in a children's yoga class. The music and movement class will help children develop their gross and fine motor skills, improve their balance and coordination, hone their listening skills, and learn about cultures around the world.
Kindermusik will be taught in this class. Kindermusik will foster the whole child's development, increase school readiness, and share the joy and power of music making.
Library / Story Time
Children build early literacy skills needed for school readiness through engaging stories, poems, finger plays, rhymes and songs.
