Academic/Spiritual Program

Saint Brigid Elementary School is part of the educational system established by the Diocese of Saginaw, with a core curriculum that is aligned with state standards and developed by the Saginaw Diocese Office of Education, and includes religion, language arts (reading, writing, phonics and spelling), science, social studies and math. Students also receive instruction in Spanish, information technology, art, physical education, vocal music and band. Additional programs that provide knowledge and growth for students and are included in our core curriculum include:

  • D.A.R.E. – a program in collaboration with the Midland Police Department that teaches students how to “just say no” to drugs, alcohol, violence and smoking
  • Junior Achievement – a volunteer-led program that fosters work-readiness, entrepreneurship and financial literacy skills
  • Child Lures Prevention Program – assists in protecting students, both offline and online

Faith Education
The sharing and development of our Catholic faith, traditions and values are taught in formal lessons and incorporated into the academic curriculum and daily activities. Students join together in the Circle of Prayer daily in the classroom and weekly as a full student body, and attend Mass each Friday, with each grade rotating responsibility for Mass ministries. Students also attend other prayer and church services and programs throughout the school year.

Special Needs
A part-time reading specialist works with students who read below their grade level. When time permits, she works on enrichment activities with students. Certified speech and occupational therapy are also available on-site.
