We are pleased to announce an exciting new partnership between All Saints Catholic School and the Little Medical School, an after school program that encourages elementary students to explore the inspiring world of health and medicine.
Through hands-on interactive demonstrations, crafts and games, the Little Medical School teaches children how the body and organs work, introduces them to medical instruments, and explores the skills that real surgeons use in surgery.
The concept is to offer small classes of 12 students led by a trained Little Medical School teacher to ensure individual attention. Our instructor will be long-time alumni parent, Mrs. Beth Ross. At the completion of the program, each child will receive a diploma and their own real stethoscope.
As part of our efforts to continue offering enriching STEM-related opportunities, we will pilot this program at the third grade level this spring. More information about the Little Medical School, including the pricing and class schedule, will be sent home shortly with each third grade student.
We look forward to this new partnership in support of student learning and the potential for expansion of this program in the future!
