  Catholic Identity

As our mission statement notes, St. Dominic Catholic School strives to teach every student about the Catholic faith and its traditions, while building a strong foundation of academic excellence. With this statement as our guide, we make it a priority to integrate Catholic teachings into all aspects of a student's education. We realize that in addition to our religious education program, which follows the curriculum established by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and utilizes books approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, every new experience at school or home provides an opportunity to enhance the Catholic formation of our students. We hope the items on this page and its subsequent links will help families to coordinate their religious education efforts with those of our school as together we "Seek Christ, Know Christ, and Become Christ, each one for the sake of all".

SERVICE PROJECTS

Jesus Christ commanded us to serve one another. At St. Dominic Catholic School we take that commissioning quite seriously. Every grade level participates in various service projects throughout the school year. Each homeroom has a “service parent” who finds ways for our students to become involved in caring for all God’s creation in big and small ways. Additionally, students in grades six through eight must perform service to understand and appreciate the importance of giving of ourselves in stewardship to others. In order to develop a habit of service, sixth through eighth grade students are to accumulate an expected number of service hours per school year (June 1, 2015 through May 31, 2016). The expectation is that work be done for the sake of being the eyes and hands of Jesus Christ to other and not for financial gain.

VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
The Importance of Virtue
PATIENCE

During the month of December, in the time of Advent, our school will reflect on the virtue of patience which is the ability to wait calmly without complaining. Patience is a learned and valuable virtue. This month, patience will be reinforced and taught through prayer, reflection, and classroom activities. We are all "plugged in" to the modern fast-paced world, a pace that can be overwhelming. As we journey through Advent, the pace of life speeds up in anticipation of Christmas. In the school we will be striving to keep Christmas out and focus on the peace that Advent can bring. As a school we will build a sense of quiet as we prepare our hearts for the coming of baby Jesus. We will also be reminded of how patient God is with us. Remember that our children learn from what they see and hear so join us in modeling patience this month.

FACULTY FAITH FORMATION
St. Dominic Catholic School is committed to the on-going religious formation of its faculty and staff members. Because forming our students in their Catholic faith is an essential component of our mission, we realize the importance of forming those who will form our students. We believe that students are formed not only during formal religion classes, but also throughout the school day in the various content areas and social situations that are part of the Catholic school experience. In an effort to enhance staff religious education, a faculty faith formation committee was formed. Faculty members of this committee completed a process at Cardinal Stritch University during which time they developed a formal faith formation program for our educators. Participation in this program led to the inclusion of spiritual, pastoral, and human formation in addition to the intellection formation that had been previously provided. A summary of this committee's work is provided: Faculty Faith Formation Plan
