caring and knowledgeable Resource Center staff, we are able to support a variety of student needs in a Christ centered, child focused environment. 

About the Resource Center:
Our Resource Room was started in 2000 by Jen Moreland and Peggy VanDyke in hopes of providing students the support they needed to gain success in school. From its humble beginnings, the Resource Room grew into a Resource Center that includes a Reading Room, a Sensory Room and a main Resource Room for specialized instruction and meetings. The staff has gone from 1 to 5, to include a Special Educator, a Reading Specialist and three full time paraprofessionals. 

The Resource Center provides support for all teachers academically, behaviorally and organizationally as well as providing direct support for more than 65 students. The Resource Center also provides the whole school with Second Step classes. These lessons teach our students how to best learn, focus, manage emotions and solve problems.  It also teaches junior high students about bullying and drug prevention. 
In order to bring students the services they need, our Special Education Coordinator works with several outside agencies to bring Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Social Language Groups to our school. Agencies include Rockhurst University, Marian Hope and Speech and Language Solutions.

FIRE (Foundation for Inclusive Education)

St. Elizabeth Catholic School is one of twelve Diocesan schools that benefit from grants through the FIRE Foundation.  What does that mean?

There's lots underway with our funding partners at the FIRE Foundation!

At the beginning of each school year, we ask all families who benefit at all from our Resource Services to become Friends of Fire (FOF).  The FIRE Foundation asks that you show acknowledgment of this by filling out their form. PLEASE consider becoming a friend of Fire-any help you can provide goes a long way.  Show your support by visiting here.
