St. Malachy strives to educate the whole child by meeting their interests in art, music, and performing arts.
Through the collaboration with Art Trek and St. Malachy students learn to appreciate the importance of art. Teachers expose and inspire students within the classroom to be creative, to discuss techniques, medium, and output of the students’ work. Art is not solely a separate entity, it is also integrated throughout the core curriculum.
Music lesson are given to all students within the allotted time. In additional to in class music lessons, students are encouraged to join our school choir. The choir accompanied by the school, praise and worship God in our weekly mass.In addition, guitar class are also offered to students 2nd thru 8th grade. Music is woven into all core areas of curriculum.
Dance is more than exploring of different ways to learn a series of steps to music; it is a way of moving that uses the body as an instrument of expression and communication. St. Malachy offers Folklórico and Matachin (Native) Dance to all students as a form of expressing and sharing their culture.
In addition to art, music and dance, St. Malachy offers students an opportunity to perform. An Annual Christmas Program is planned and offered to students. Through this program students build and learn character, acceptance, motivation, and perseverance.
