PRIMARY (K-2)

Holy Spirit provides a calm, supportive, and secure environment to ensure that your child will be known and honored while preparing for lifelong learning.

Guided by passionate teachers who utilize hands-on activities and whole-child learning, students develop a firm foundation and grow in literacy, reading fluency, math, science, social studies, faith, and creative expression.

Literacy

In partnership with Groves Academy, Holy Spirit offers a phonics, research-based literacy program for all of our students in kindergarten through grade two. Our teachers, having gone through extensive training, provide our youngest students the opportunity to become proficient readers, giving them a strong foundation, so they are ready
to “read to learn” by third grade. All students have seen tremendous growth and success through our literacy program.

Holy Spirt has led the way in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. In 2018, Holy Spirit was the only
Catholic school in the Archdiocese to participate in this program. The extraordinary success we have seen has inspired this program to grow.

Curriculum

Curriculum centers around religion, literacy, language arts, and mathematics. In addition, students learn in science, social studies, music, physical education, and library classes.

Beyond academics, Holy Spirit strives to create a sense of community by forming partnerships and friendships in the classroom, across grade levels, and in the community.
