Christ. Quality. Community. ~ Grade Level Goals
Christ: Our goal is for students to realize who God is and his/her identity in Christ. This is done through modeling of Christian behavior; studying the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; building relationships in the classroom based on the teachings and example of Christ; Bible verse memorization; daily prayer and devotions.
Quality: Our goal is for students to develop a strong foundation in English Language Arts and Mathematics by being challenged and supported at each child’s level.
Community: Our goal is to model and nurture respect and love within and beyond our classroom by participating with classmates and parents in service projects, field trips, celebrations, and events.
