A Day at St. Ambrose School
After all students recite the Pledge of Allegiance, each class individually continues with its own personal intentions within the classroom. This combination of school-wide and classroom prayer builds a classroom community within the overall school community.
Specialists in the areas of computer, library, music, art, physical education, and Spanish provide instruction in these subjects.
The Thursday morning Mass is a special part of each week. Students act as ushers, lectors, and altar servers, and the school choir leads the congregation in song. St. Ambrose students attend Mass on all holy days and also attend Stations of the Cross weekly during Lent. In addition, we celebrate the Feast of St. Ambrose (December 7) with a special school Mass and festivities.
Recess and Lunch
Students may order a hot lunch (beginning the day after Labor Day) or bring their lunch from home. In addition, they may buy milk or juice at school. Ice cream is offered for sale on Fridays.
After dismissal, students remaining at school are busy with games, physical activities, crafts and homework in the Extended Day Program. Other after school activities include Lego Club, Math Counts, Crochet USA, Band, Choir, Battle of the Books, Chess Club,and Junior CYO Track, Cross Country, and Basketball.
Throughout the day, parent and parish volunteers help the school in many ways: in the lunchroom, on the playground, in the art, music, and science programs, in the library, in the office, tutoring, and assisting classroom teachers.
