Each day is guided by Jesus’ words found in John 15:12: “Love one another as I have loved you.” The focus is on supporting children as they make decisions, build academic skills, develop socially, emotionally and spiritually, and become part of a classroom community. Children learn to love one another by sharing, taking turns, working and playing together, and growing at their own pace.
The curriculum is a mixture of spiritual, social, play and academic. Religion is incorporated into this curriculum. Age-appropriate activities are provided to enhance all learning. Attention is given to each child’s social development through interaction with adults and other children.
Junior Kindergarten drop-off is at 8:00am at the School Entrance off the north parking lot. Cars line up along the curb and teachers assist the children out of the car. SMG K-8 School Families have the option of early drop-off. See “Before & After School Care” tab for details.
Pick up occurs at 3:00pm in the north parking lot with the SMG School pick-up. Cars must be parked by 3:00pm, with engines turned off. The Junior Kindergarten Teacher escorts the children through the parking lot until they reach their parked vehicle. Once all children are in their vehicles, teachers direct cars to leave, following the flow of traffic in one single file line. If you are late to pick up, you will be directed to the late line, where your child will enter your vehicle. The late line is released once all other vehicles are cleared from the parking lot. Unless children take part in an after school care program (See “Before & After School Care” tab for details), all students are to be picked up by 3:15pm.
Early Drop Off
Junior Kindergartners with older siblings enrolled at SMG School may be dropped off during school drop off as early as 7:30am for an additional fee of $10/week.
After School Care
After school care is available at an additional fee through AYS, which specializes in providing high-quality, educational and safe programs for children outside of school hours at St. Maria Goretti. The AYS program ends at 6:00pm. The cost of the program this school year is $50 for up to 2 days per week or $70 for 3-5 days per week.
