Beginning this school year, Saint Stanislaus School is partnering with Talcott Mountain Science Center in Avon to provide science and math enrichment and relevant uses of technology in the curriculum.
Saint Stanislaus School was founded in 1897 by a group of Polish immigrants who wanted to create a God-centered learning environment where prayer, advanced study, and service were emphasized. Our school curriculum exceeds the national Common Core standards and enhances the knowledge and skills of our students so that they can think critically and become productive moral citizens within a multicultural and technological society.
Talcott Mountain Science Center began in 1967 with a dedication to hands-on, inquiry-based science that leverages a child’s natural sense of wonder and critical thinking skills to provide a natural outlet for their curiosity and problem solving abilities.
The merger of these two great institutions will provide a richer experience for our students.

St. Stan’s Students Learn through Exercise
The Saint Stanislaus School Academy of Math & Science 7th grade class recently learned about heart rate.
The students learned how to determine both their resting and active pulse rate and will be logging these numbers over the next week or so with the hope of graphing and comparing them at the end.
The first pulse rate was taken while resting and the second was taken after 5 minutes of running in place. The students also took their pulse rate after eating lunch.
St. Stan’s Students Make Clouds
The Saint Stanislaus School Academy of Math and Science grade 6 students recently made clouds.
The students are learning about the water cycle. Talcott Mountain enriched their learning by teaching the students about cloud formation.
The class discussed how the pressure and temperature in the atmosphere change due to an increase in altitude. In order to form clouds, there must be a low pressure system.
The students also learned about cloud condensation nuclei which are hygroscopic particles that attract water molecules and aid in cloud formation.
They ended the lesson by actually creating their own clouds in flasks containing warm water with a syringe attached to the top.
