Students Become the Teachers
Saint Monica Preparatory Upper School students studying American Sign Language (ASL) have begun teaching sign language to Transitional Kindergarten students. Upper School students visit the TK classroom twice a week to teach vocabulary and play games to develop sign language skills with our youngest students. Everyone is learning and enjoying the experience! The ASL teacher, Ms. DeWig, plans to expand the program to Kindergarten through 2nd grade in the new year.
The sign language collaboration is just one example of how we are integrating TK through 12th grades into one cohesive school program. Our approximately 650 students have been gathering in school families to work on faith formation projects together, giving older students mentoring experience while strengthening our school community and both student and faculty relationships across grades. The whole school joins together regularly for school Masses, including recent celebrations planned by the Upper School Nosotros Club for the Immaculate Conception and the Black Cultural Society for Black Catholic History Month.
