  • Religion and Health Curriculum

    At Saint Patrick School in eighth grade, the students will recieve the sacrament of Confirmation. From September to November, I will prepare my students to receieve the Holy Spirit at Confirmation and strengthen their bond to the Catholic Church. We will document our Acts of Kindness, perform Works of Mercy and complete several Service Projects to give back to the school and community. The students will complete several projects including Cannonization and a Saint Project.

    After our bond in strengthened, we will focus on our eighth grade religion curriculum. The students will analyze the timeline of the Catholic Church and the roles saints, priests and lay people have held in supporting and maintaining our faith. 

    Our curriculum is supported by the Respect Life office, and our students will partake in the Annual Respect Life Youth Contest through the Diocese of Rockville Centre. "The mission of The Respect Life Office is to enunciate and promote the principle that human life, at all stages from conception to natural death, is a gift from God, worthy of respect and protection."

    In eighth grade, we will continue to partner our religion curriculum and respect life message with our health curriculum. The students will complete their "Baby Project" to demonstrate their understanding of abstinence, the complexities of parenting and the cost of raising a newborn. In health, the students will focus on the reproductive system, the stages of development (before and after birth), and the stages of birth.
