Enrichments

In addition to the core academic curriculum, students in all grade areas participate in a variety of once-weekly Enrichment subjects.

Art Class is a weekly course in all grade levels where students can really exercise their creativity in every possible medium! Once students reach middle school, they are eligible to take an advance course which meets twice weekly and covers more difficult projects.

In Music, students can really show off their beautiful voices! Students in all grade levels are also eligible to participate in a variety of student choirs that meet after school and perform at Mass, school events, and local competitions! Students in the middle school who are part of these choirs also meet twice weekly during the school day.

Our Computers and Technology class gives students a chance to learn how to operate PC's, navigate the web, and create professional-looking papers and presentations. Students in 4K through 4th grade also get a chance to utilize the school iPad cart for academic support.  In grades 5 through 8, students learn to code, design, and to create providing exposure to technological possibilities. 

Exercise is important, which is why all students take Physical Education every year at COKSM. Students get to work out, play sports, compete with each other, and burn off some of that extra energy! Some students in the middle school can also meet a second time per week to sweat even more!​

Students in 4K through 5th grade take Spanish as an enrichment class before it becomes a daily course in the middle school. Students learn the basics of Spanish using creative activities, fun songs, and educational video clips. By the time they reach middle school, students are fluent in the fundamentals and can jump right into the more advanced material!​

Finally, lower school students visit the Library once a week to check out books, listen to stories, watch fun videos, and learn how the library works. The library also hosts the schools' annual Book Fairs.
