Special People in Catholic Education (SPICE) supports the education of children with special learning needs in our parish and school. SPICE assists our parish as we work to serve a broad range of students, including those who may be gifted and those who have roadblocks to successful learning. We believe that each child in our parish is a child of God and possesses his or her own unique spiritual and educational needs.
If any questions please feel free to contact our co-chairs, Jeanne Owens and Tracy Owens.
Upcoming Events: Summer Get Moving Program 2017
SPICE Summer Get Moving Program
The St. Brigid of Kildare SPiCE Wellness and Get Moving program is sponsoring a series of fun, active events this summer such as soccer, yoga, volleyball, and a dance party. The main objective is to get children moving twice a week for 2 hours in a fun, non-competitive setting. Remember to bring a water bottle!
The Summer Get Moving program takes place June 6 – August 10, 2017. You must sign up for each individual session online. A parent consent/medical form must be turned in at your child’s first session. All students entering K-6th grade in St. Brigid School, Parish, and Religious Ed are welcome, and the program will be especially sensitive to kids with special needs. All 7th-12th grades are welcome to volunteer as helpers throughout the program; please contact Morgan Ventresco at firstname.lastname@example.org
