At St. Theresa School we offer Saskatchewan curricular instruction for students in prekindergarten to grade 8.
The following programs are currently offered at St. Theresa School in addition to regular Saskatchewan curriculum.
Prekindergarten is programming for children ages 3 and 4 and limited to 16 students in each class that best meet specific criteria. Students are involved in readiness activities that prepare them for kindergarten and the overall school experience and learning through purposeful play is the primary learning strategy. The program is a half day each day, Monday to Thursday, with occasional Friday activities.
English as an Additional Language (EAL)
Supports are provided to help students with first languages other than English improve their English language. An EAL teacher works with the students in a pull out program to help students with specific and works with classroom teachers to help meet student needs within the regular classroom.
Students have the opportunity to participate in half day per week offsite program in which they develop their knowledge and understanding of Ukrainian culture, language and religion.
Speech and Language Program
Students with identified needs are provided with speech and language support with early intervention in our primary grade levels.
Learning Resource Program
Students identified as not achieving to expected levels are provided additional supports through our Learning Resource Program (LRP). Our learning resource teachers work with classroom teachers and our Student Success Team to develop programs and instructional practices to help students succeed to expected levels. The learning resource teacher also works either with individuals or small groups in pull-out situations, or works with the students and teacher in the regular classroom settings.
