  • Our Thematic Multi-grade Classrooms

    Grades 1-8 are organized into two groups based on their individual needs. The instruction is thematic. This means that one theme runs through all subject areas of learning. The themes are selected and based in the nationally recognized Adventist Standards.

    Reading and Math Groups are designed to help the student master skills outlined in their specific grade’s standards of learning. Our teachers use the Whole Brain approach which is an interactive learning style. Units of study are designed using the Understanding by Design model, which focuses on learning outcomes and practical application. Our teachers believe that true education harmoniously develops the child physically, mentally, and spiritually.

    Service

    Each month our students are given opportunity to serve in the local community. We strive to nurture the whole child. Part of this plan teaches them that serving others brings fulfillment and joy. It honors God and our neighbors.

    • Visiting people in Assisted Living Centers
    • Yard Maintenance
    • Singing for local organizations
    • Collecting food, household materials, and clothing for the local Community Service Center
    • Sharing Jesus’ love and our hope in His soon return

    Assessment

    Each year student progress is measured using the nationally norm Iowa Test of Basic Skill (ITBS). The tests are administered in the fall of each year, not at the end of the school years. The results help our teaching staff create a learning plan that meets the child’s individual needs. The test measures student growth annually and creates a baseline for progress monitoring throughout the year. Our teachers meet personally and regularly with parents to discuss their child’s progress.

    Personal Note

    This year’s theme is “Growing in Christ.” We will celebrate our learning with STEM days throughout our school year, every student will participate. Parents are invited to participate with their child in a Family STEM day this November (Check our calendar for dates).

    This year we will study:

    • Christ’s Character and Following Gods example in the way we live our life
    • American History- Reconstruction Era to Present day (gr. 5-8)
    • Citizens, Economics and the United States Geography with focus on the Western States (gr. K-4)
    • Classification of plants, bacteria, fungi and protists, rocks and minerals
    • States of Matter
    • Earth’s environment and resources
    • Healthy lifestyles

    So let’s plant the seeds to success and grow!
