Enrichment

In addition to our outstanding academic curriculum our students have a variety of opportunities to further develop themselves beyond the classroom. The students in all grades participate in building our school community through Tribes and Peace Partners programs. In fifth grade the students can participate in the National Geography Bee as well as SCRIPPS Spelling Bee, sixth and seventh graders participate in our annual Science Fair, and, if they qualify, seventh and eighth graders can participate on our Academic Decathlon Team. After school Chess Club is offered as well. Volleyball, basketball, and track are offered through the Catholic Schools League with volleyball and basketball starting in fifth grade. In order to enhance our literature, social studies, and science curriculum various field trips are offered at each grade level. For more specific information about the Geography & Spelling Bees, the Science Fair, and Field Trips, click the link “Bees, Fairs, & Field Trips”

Resource

The resource teacher works with students who have additional education needs. She works closely with the classroom teacher to plan and implement appropriate instruction to target learning gaps by scaffolding student learning or through remediation. The resource teacher works one-on-one or in small groups to help students move closer to grade level expectations. These students are monitored closely to ensure adequate progress is being made. In the event a more in-depth plan of action is necessary to achieve academic learning goals, our resource teacher oversees all academic Student Support Teams (SSTs) at St. Apollinaris. If district testing is sought, she works closely with the Napa Valley Unified School District during their SST and Individualized Education Program (IEP) processes.

Additional Services

Library

Our library is a valuable resource. Students participate in a variety of reading and learning centered activities. Primary grades enjoy storytime with Mrs. Joske. Older students research projects and reports within the extensive collection of non-fiction resources available. The large collection of fiction provides ample selection for class reading assignments or pleasure reading.

Students can access our catalog here: stas.follettdestiny.com

Students can access the Library Catalog from home and place books on hold. The books are delivered to their class the next school day.

St. Apollinaris participates in the Renaissance Accelerated Reader program. Many books for this program are available through our Library and can be identified in the ARBookfinder!
