St. Vivian School takes great pride in teaching students to work cooperatively!  Our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) curriculum teaches students how to rely on each other to accomplish a common goal.  Learning real world applications prepares our students to become productive citizens later in life!  Below are some 5th graders working on a Science project, Preschool working to create a wooden tower, and grade 4 create structures with spaghetti and marshmallows!
