During the month of February, our second-grade students learn about our nation's ugly history of slavery and segregation. For the annual Black History Museum, they do their own research and write their own autobiographies as they portray brave and remarkable people who have made a difference in our world.
Each grade at St. Raphael School has an average of three Signature Units—topics that are covered in-depth and cross-curriculum—each of which typically culminates with a field trip or an in-school presentation. These units spice up our traditional foundation of learning—which is language rich, math heavy, and includes a hands-on science approach.
Note: The Signature Units above do not represent all of the curricula for the grades listed, but they do give an idea of some of the exciting areas of study each class will be exploring. Visit our Academics page for more information.
