Coming to All Saints in the Fall of 2021 – NEW Middle School Video Production Specialty Program!

Congratulations to All Saints Assistant Principal Mrs. Horgan on achieving credentials as an Certified Google Trainer. It is wonderful having her expertise available for our students, faculty and staff.

To provide students with more opportunities for hands-on learning in the areas of math and science, All Saints incorporates a variety of STEM resources into our curriculum.

Kindergarten - study of animals and life cycles in scienceGrades K, 1 and 2: More to Math
A hands-on approach to problem solving that encourages collaboration, higher-level thinking, and real-life connections.

Grade 3: Simple Machines
A hands-on approach that reinforces math and science skills through the design and building of models as an introduction to engineering.

Grades 4-5: WeDo’s
A hands-on approach that integrates STEM knowledge with language arts as students work together to find creative solutions for problems and to create structures using digital technology.

Technology in the Classroom
In addition to our integrated use of Activpanels, teachers at all grade levels regularly bring technology into their classrooms through multiple Chromebook and iPad carts. Both Chromebooks and iPads are used by students throughout the school in support of differentiation of learning, online assessment, and for further integration of technology and learning, particularly in the math and science programs. Our middle school students benefit from a one-to-one Google Chromebook device program.

Robotics Program
Thanks to your contributions to the Annual Fund, we recently made some exciting changes to our Robotics Program at All Saint!

Fall of 2019 – The middle school Robotics Club expanded to include sixth grade students along with seventh and eighth graders.

All Saints hosted its first middle school Robotics Tournament on Saturday, November 9, 2019 in the gym. All Saints and Seton School will be teaming up again to host a middle school and high school Robotics Tournament on Saturday, November 13, 2021.

Spring of 2022 – We will begin offering Robotics as an after school activity for students in fourth and fifth grades. These students will work with Lego® More to Math and utilize our VEX IQ equipment.

Fall of 2022 – Our middle school Robotics Team will transition from VEX IQ to VEX EDR, a higher level experience for middle and high school students that will allow our students to compete at VRC competitions. This Robotics platform will better prepare our students for STEM opportunities in high school and beyond. The All Saints Robotics Team will then transition from VEX IQ to VEX VRC competitions in the 2020-2021 school year.

Middle School
All Saints students benefit from a one-to-one device program in our middle school, providing students with access to a Chromebook for their use throughout the school day and at home. In addition, all 7th and 8th grade students learn VEX Programming within their computer classes and have an opportunity to participate in our Robotics Club. Students and teachers in our middle school also utilize Google Classroom, a suite of productivity tools designed to save time and improve organization.
