    Happy New Year - The Season of Advent Has Begun!

    A Message for Advent, from Mrs. Armando:

    The season of Advent is here and brings with it the opportunity to renew our spirits and make room for the Lord. This reading, from the First Sunday of Advent, reminds us that we must constantly work to make straight our paths, to ask forgiveness, and keep our hearts open to all.

    "Brothers and sisters: May the Lord make you increase and abound in love for one another and for all, just as we have for you, so as to strengthen your hearts, to be blameless in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his holy ones. Amen.

    Finally, brothers and sisters, we earnestly ask and exhort you in the Lord Jesus that, as you received from us how you should conduct yourselves to please God and as you are conducting yourselves you do so even more. For you know what instructions we gave you through the Lord Jesus."

    1 Thessalonians 3:12-4:2

    May this Advent season bring the promise of hope, joy, and love that only God is capable of fulfilling.

Why St. Charles School?

  • Enhanced Mathematics Program

    New! Online Tools to Support, Enhance, and Extend Mathematics Achievement

    Students in grades K-4 experience math in multisensory ways, increasing engagement and enjoyment in learning math concepts. Using the online TouchMath program, students receive immediate feedback with audio and visual reinforcement that supports all types of learners. Designed specifically to produce results among students of all learning styles, the program ensures that students see, say, hear, touch, and learn using interactive classroom aids, manipulatives, and simulations. This program supplements the St. Charles classroom curriculum and further differentiates instruction to reinforce critical math concepts.

    Using St. Charles digital tools, students in grades 5-8 have new opportunities to apply and expand their mathematics learning through the online ALEKS program, which differentiates instruction and provides an optimal path to success for each student. This program supports teachers with ongoing assessment of student progress and personalized instruction that fosters student learning for mastery and retention. Students benefit from immediate feedback and step-by-step explanations to ensure full understanding and application of the Common Core Standards.

    After-School Math Lab  

    St. Charles School employs a team of three teachers specializing in math instruction whose talents are expressed during daily classroom instruction and extended to after-school personalized practice and extension. Smaller, split math classes in grades 5-8 increase opportunities for teachers to reach all students and foster increased student participation. The St. Charles after-school Math Lab program gives students a unique environment in which to communicate, practice, and master mathematics concepts with support from teachers who specialize in math.
