St. Lambert Elementary School offers education for your child up through 6th grade. St. Lambert has one section of each grade and our class sizes range from 13-21 students in a class. We strive for low student/teacher ratios. Every school has educational assistants, counselors, academic service staff and certified art, physical education and computer teachers.

Our students continually earn high scores and demonstrate excellent growth in academic areas on formal, informal and standardized tests. Our professional and dedicated staff help all students achieve to their fullest potential in safe and positive environments.  We are fully accredited by the state of South Dakota. In addition, all students receive instruction and access to the library, and the opportunity for band instruction is available grades 5 and 6. Orchestra is a new music option at SFCS for students beginning                   in grade 4.

Always Looking Forward…

St. Lambert is the first elementary school in the city to implement a 1-to-1 iPad classroom for its students.  Students in grades 5th and 6th, are each issued an iPad at the beginning of the year to use as an integrated resource that enhances curriculum in each subject.  The iPads are also taken home to facilitate homework, group projects, and teacher-class communication.

Our students are well prepared to enter into junior high school when they have completed 6th grade. The 6th grade class has the opportunity to experience and develop leadership skills before they make that transition.

The elementary school hours are from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm (Holy Spirit & St. Katharine Drexel hours are 7:45 am to 2:45 pm). Before and/or after school care is available in various formats.  YMCA athletic programs are available for student participation as is Boy/Girl Scout programs.  Hot lunch is available at each site.

Sioux Falls Catholic Schools are truly a community.  Parents are actively involved in the  education process.  Staff works to communicate  effectively with parents and strives to integrate them in classrooms and other active means of volunteering.  Each school has an active “School Family Organization” which is involved in advising, planning, participating and running social events and assisting with fundraising.  Parents truly are partners in the education process.

We invite you to call any of the elementary schools or to contact SFCS Admissions Coordinator, Jenni Struck, @ (605) 575-3358 or jstruck@sfcss.org to arrange a visit /tour.

Please come and visit our school and see why your child’s education is important to us!
