Full steam ahead at St. Mary

Catholic School in Mokena

St. Mary Catholic School

in Mokena provides a nurturing

environment where faith,

education, and moral values

are promoted and reinforced.

In order to further this mission,

the school will be undergoing

a renovation this summer

to create a new three-year- old

preschool classroom and contemporary

STEAM (science,

technology, engineering, art,

mathematics) classroom.

STEAM is a unique approach

to enhance student learning and

understanding of how all things

relate to each other, in school

and in life. It emphasizes the integration

of the arts and offers

more creativity to students in

the learning process. STEAM

allows educators to become

more of a facilitator, while students

are given greater choice

and learning becomes about the

process instead of the product.

“We are blessed to be able

to build this new classroom

that will allow for the integration

of the arts with science,

technology, engineering, and

mathematics,” states Beth Cunningham,

Principal, St. Mary

Catholic School. “We believe

that by integrating our fine arts

program into our existing science,

technology, engineering

and mathematics (STEM) curriculum,

we will create an even

stronger learning environment

for our students.”

St. Mary’s teachers always

strive to engage students while

making learning fun! With the

addition of the STEAM room,

St. Mary students will begin using

TAB (Teaching for Artistic

Behavior) art theory, working in

centers where they may choose

to create the art that excites

Please see St. Mary, 34


St. Mary School is offering a Tuition Transfer

Grant up to $1,500 per family ($1,000 in year

one, $500 in year two) for students entering grades

1-7 who transfer from any private*, public, charter or

home school.

*Students transferring from another Catholic school in the Diocese of Joliet are not eligible.
