The St. Francis of Assisi elementary grades strive for excellence within our 1st – 5th grade classrooms. We use our own Archdiocese standards and pull from a variety of other resources to keep our learners as engaged as possible. Starting in 1st grade, we track the growth of our students through the use of Renaissance Learning software and our annual Iowa Test of Basic Skills toward the end of the year. In addition to the core curriculum, every student within these grades will also attend a computer, physical education, music, library and Spanish class every week. All students also take band beginning in the third grade, which continues through 8th grade. Please contact the front office, contact us through our website or stop by our campus if you have any questions about our elementary grades!
