Mary Immaculate Queen School provides an environment in which each student is encouraged to develop as an individual and as a member of the parish community. The resources of the school, parish and local community are engaged to meet the needs, talents and goals of each student.
In addition to a top tier academic and elective curriculum covering all essential subjects and preparing students for rigorous secondary school programs, M.I.Q. maintains a list of School Wide Learning Expectations which prepare your student for the challenges of society as a whole.

MIQ School is committed to preparing our students to be active members in today's technology centered world. Grade levels K-8 receive instruction in a technology enhanced classroom. Lessons are integrated and enhanced using interactive white boards, responders, internet and multi-media that is textbook based. In addition, monthly STEM challenges encourage creativity and "out of the box" thinking, while making learning fun. Grades K to 8th have access to Chromebooks for lessons and enrichment.
In addition to formal instruction in the classroom, the religion program provides opportunities for the students to live the faith through prayer services, participation in liturgies and reception of sacraments. Our students strive to see the sacredness in the depths of everything and to be inspirations for their families and community. At M.I.Q., Catholic Identity is the top priority, as we find that faith filled activities are more powerful than a stand alone religion class.
The after school sports program is an extra-curricular activity, and is open to students grades 5th to 8th. Students in 4th grade can participate on D teams when needed. Athletic teams offered include basketball, volleyball and track. Students who participate in the after school sports program are subject to the responsibilities set forth in the MIQ Sports Contract.
The purpose of Student Council is to promote good citizenship, help students develop leadership and responsibility, to demonstrate the practical application of democracy, to encourage a high standard of scholarship, to stimulate school spirit, and to advance the welfare of the school and its students in every possible manner. Students in grades 5 - 8 may serve as student council officers or representatives
There are many opportunities for students to develop special talents. A variety of extracurricular activities are offered for both boys and girls. These include MIQ Choir, field trips, drama, gardening, leadership, as well as vocal music. Students are also involved in community activities and service projects. Examples include: Food Drive, Winter Coat Drive, Nursing Home Visits, and Volunteering at the local Animal Shelter.
Before and after school care from 7am to 6 pm is available to MIQ School students on days when school is in session. The Extended Care Program (ECP) provides playtime, snacks and homework time for students.
Enrollments are now being accepted for current school year and upcoming school year 2023-2024 Academic Year for Preschool through 8th. Scholarships and family discounts are available. We are happy to discuss tuition options.
Appendix C. Busing Guidelines
In order to practice physical distancing on a school bus, the seating capacity must be reduced. This may necessitate the use of a seating chart to designate which seats are available for use.
Routing is the responsibility of the school’s transportation department. High schools and other transportation departments need to evaluate the needs of the student’s, routes needed, and transportation resources required while following all bussing guidelines.
· Determine maximum capacity for students of each vehicle while meeting 6-foot physical distancing requirement.
· Create a plan for seating based upon maximum capacity determined above, and develop a plan for bus routes that accommodates the capacity limitations.
· Mark or block seats that must be left vacant. Sample seating options
o Option 1: Seat one student to a bench on both sides of the bus, skipping every other row
o Option 2: Seat one student to a bench, alternating rows on each side to create a zigzag pattern on the bus
· Instruct students and parents to maintain 6-foot distancing at bus stops and while loading/unloading the bus
· Seat students from the rear of the bus forward to prevent students from walking past each other. To prevent students from walking past each other, afternoon runs should be boarded based upon the order in which students will be dropped off. (Students who get dropped off first should board the bus last, and sit in the front)
· Students and staff must wear face coverings at bus stops and on buses
· Follow all cleaning practices per CDC Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Facilityguidelines
· Vehicles may have exceeded a 45-day maintenance or inspection date while sitting out of service during the COVID-19 stay-at-home orders. Vehicles need to meet all maintenance and inspection requirements before being placed back into service in accordance with Title 13 CCR 1232 Periodic Preventive Maintenance Inspection
· Schools and drivers need to make sure the vehicle’s certificate is still valid and that 13 months from the last inspection have not been exceeded in accordance with Vehicle Code 2807 Lawful Orders and Inspections
During these unsettling times, one thing is certain, our community's unwavering commitment to Catholic education. Our families have been impacted by a hardship such COVID-19 pandemic. Some have been laid off, furloughed, or had significant reduction in salaries. Families who are small business owners are struggling to make ends meet, and some of our students are wondering if their families will be able to continue to provide them with an MIQ education.
Please continue to pray for our MIQ family, and if you can, please consider a contribution to the Knight Relief Fund. The fund will provide additional tuition assistance for our students and help make up the difference in anticipated financial losses to the school due to the postponement of our fundraising efforts. These fundraising efforts historically generate over $100,000 and have a direct impact on student programs and tuition support to our families.

Current data from other Catholic schools around the country are seeing families currently receiving aid needing an additional 20%-40%, as well as an increase in families, who under normal circumstances would be able to pay full tuition, requesting tuition assistance. Since we really have no idea how many families will need assistance this school year, our appeal will remain active through the end of July!
On behalf of our families in need, thank you for your generosity and willingness to help at this critical time. May God continue to keep you and your family safe and healthy and may God continue to bless Mary Immaculate Queen School.
