All Saints Catholic School teachers and staff members are very intentional about the faith formation of the children attending our school. Each day begins and ends with joining together in prayer.
Virtues in Practice
Every Monday our school pauses to study reflect on a virtue of the month. The curriculum we use is Virtues In Practice or VIP as we like to call it. On VIP Mondays, all of the children spend time in their homerooms discussing a virtue and the life of a Saint who modeled the virtue in his/her life. Learn more about the curriculum here.
Sustaining the Mission
Sustaining the Mission is the religious education certification program endorsed by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee for Catholic School educators serving in the Archdiocesan schools. Click here to learn more about the program here.
All students in grades K4 through 8th grade attend a grade specific yearly retreat. These retreats are designed to bring together the children and to provide them with opportunities to deepen their relationship with God and one another. Our Middle School Students also attend a grade specific retreat with the students at St. Joseph Catholic Academy.
The Liturgical Year
One of the beautiful things about attending a Catholic school is being immersed in the Liturgical year within dailyness of school. During the seasons of Advent and Lent our school is filled with signs and symbols of our faith. We work hard to keep the secular Santa and Easter Bunny out of school and to focus on the preparation time leading up to Christmas and Easter. Our Advent wreaths are lit each day and a service project grounds the season reminding us of our Christian call to serve others. Lent brings with it a solemn time of preparation complete with another service project and time to reflect on how we have allowed sin to enter into our lives. The children lead prayers over the announcements, attend confession, adoration and pray the rosary. Each takes part in class activities centered on nurturing a deeper relationship with God.
