In Kindergarten our smaller class size is a tribute to more individualized instruction and relationships with fellow classmates.
In Kindergarten we equip the children with a greater knowledge and understanding of the Bible.
We improve our writing skills and by the end of the year all students should be able to read and comprehend what they have read.
General respect for others is a tribute obtained through our Bible studies and discipline.
Our smaller class size is a tribute to more Individualized instruction and relationships with fellow classmates.
We pray at the end of the year our students will have developed a love for learning.
Our kindergartners love to go on field trips. We have an annual Thanksgiving feast with the sixth graders. We also visit Mesker Zoo in the spring. Our class has many parties throughout the year such as the Christmas, Valentine, Easter and 100th day of school.
