Our preschool students go to the library each week to read and check out books. Our librarian coordinates with teachers to enhance the learning experience. At St. Timothy’s we encourage the love of reading through: Scholastic Book Fairs, National Library Week, Read Across America Day, the California Young Readers program, visits by authors, Barnes and Noble/Pajamarama Event and summer reading programs. Library is open before and after school for students and families to check out books. Reading is the gateway to success.
Preschool students attend Music class one time per week. During the school year, students learn a wide variety of secular and non-secular music, with an emphasis on songs to be sung at our weekly Chapel, and at our Christmas and Spring programs. Students also learn about a variety of music including classical, opera, Celtic and the 50’s. Music can be a wonderful tool in building a student’s self-esteem. Our goal has always been to teach our students the basics of music, but more importantly, to “sing from the heart.”
