Note about STEAM

We have a new and growing STEAM lab available to our 3-8 grade students. Each week they have one class period in the lab, it is also available to teachers for use when it is not being used for class. We are so excited about all the amazing opportunities our students have to problem solve, experiment, and learn in this new environment.

Technology in The Classroom

We are a Google school.

All students in grades 3-8, and all faculty members, have a school Google account. This means students have access to the full suite of Google apps including Docs, Slides, and Sheets. While the server is self-contained, keeping students safe from outside threats, students have access to their files from any device with internet access.

Teachers are striving to incorporate technology into daily learning. We currently have three fully functional Chromebook carts and one iPad cart that students use for Media Skills, STEAM and other technology-based work.

Religious Formation

“Make Christ Present in All We Say and Do”

Students attend mass every Friday as well as any Holy day of Obligation that falls during the school week. Students actively participate in the Mass especially when it is their classes turn to read, sing, and present the gifts. Whole school confessions are offered twice a year, during the Advent and Lent seasons.

Starting in 4th grade our students are trained as Altar Servers and take turns serving at masses.

In 2nd Grade, our students receive their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.

St. Bernard’s celebrates the Sacrament of Confirmation every other year. Our next celebration will be in 2021. Students in 7th and 8th grade are confirmed during these celebrations.

Students are paired up with “Prayer Partners” each year to do various activities throughout the year as well as to sit together during mass.
