Of great importance in our school is the time we devote daily
to learning about Jesus. We try to instill the simple Bible truths, bringing
the children to know and love Jesus, and accept Him as their personal Savior
assured of His constant love and forgiveness.
Study areas cover Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection, favorite
Bible stories and their application to our own lives; how God made us and
our families; how God made the world and in it gives us everything we need;
how God empowers us; His children, to be like Jesus and show love for Him
and for others.
Weekly, the children will attend a brief chapel service in the sanctuary
led by the pastor. We cordially invite you to attend these chapel services.
A mission offering is taken during chapel. All mission monies are donated
at the end of the year to a missions project or to charity.
The primary aim of our school will be to develop a positive self-concept
in each child. We feel the best way to do this is to have and accept each
child unconditionally, and teach them that Christ loves them even more
and accepts them just as they are.
The whole child (physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual)
will be related to as the child is taught through his experiences, senses
and feeling. Most of this is done through play. To a young child, “work”
is play, and it will be the heart of our curriculum. Children play to learn.
Please send your child to school ready to play in clothes meant to get
dirty. We don’t want children afraid to paint because they might get dirty.
Play is your child’s job. Paint smocks are provided but are not guaranteed
to keep all paint from your child. It’s how they learn.
The Christian curriculum will teach basic Bible truths, make application
of these truths to the child’s life, and treat secular subjects and problems
in light of God’s Word. Specifically, we will center on God’s love for
us, our love for God, viewing prayer as “talking with God”, using the names
of God and Jesus interchangeable and separately, experiencing love, forgiveness,
protection, acceptance, and trust as a child of God.
The school is on a trimester system with progress reports sent home in
November and report cards sent home in January and May. Parent conferences
will be held in January. This will be a time for questions concerns. If
you have any questions before conference time, please be sure to talk with
your child’s teacher.
