Holy Family Catholic School’s mission statement calls us to “promote excellence in education for the whole person.” This means that we need to look beyond mathematics and grammar; we need to provide a well-rounded education in arts, music, technology, and much more.
Our art program is multi-faceted; students are exposed to the works, lives, and influences of the great masters while simultaneously developing individual artistic skill and aptitude. Students are given opportunities for arts and crafts frequently in the classroom. Our dedicated art program occurs every other week and is a wonderful outlet for student creativity and foundation for artistic development.
Music is offered once weekly. Students develop a love for and understanding of music and musical theory, including theory, reading music, basic instruments, singing in unison and in harmony, and musical performance. In fourth grade, students are introduced to playing the recorder; in fifth grade, they have the opportunity to learn a band instrument. Middle school students can continue their band experience and/or participate more fully in the school choir in ever more advanced ways. The music department presents three major productions throughout the year: the all-school Christmas program, Broadway night, and the all-school Spring Concert.
