st mary wtbyStudents at St. Mary School in Waterbury show off projects they created for the school's STREAM Night on Feb. 2.It's not too late to register your child for September at St. Mary School in Waterbury.

St. Mary School, located at 43 Cole St. in Waterbury (just across from St. Mary’s Hospital), is the oldest Catholic School in the city.

Even though it is the oldest, its curriculum is new and progressive.

Last year, the school adopted the STREAM model of teaching, which combines science, technology, religion, engineering, the arts and math. As an example of how he method works, after a literature class read A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, which is about the need for accessible water for the people of South Sudan, students studied South Sudan in social studies class, searched out ways to purify water in science class and researched ways of moving water efficiently in engineering class.

The students also had a fundraiser and raised $400 for South Sudan and its water project .

St. Mary School invites you to join the growing number of families who are ready to STREAM into the future there. The school is accepting new students in Pre-K 3 through Grade 8.

All grades follow the STREAM Initiative.
