In the elementary grades, students are developing their academic and social skills. They are learning how to become empowered learners through critical and creative thinking. CCLS supports development by not only preparing students academically, but growing the whole child. A well-rounded curriculum allows children to expand life skills like problem solving, self-awareness and collaboration. Our faith-filled community drives character development and Christian discipleship supported by passionate teachers in an inspiring learning environment.
From reading and writing workshop to project based learning, no matter the subject, students are given the tools to explore and observe in all content areas.
Along with our core subjects, each students' curriculum includes Spanish, physical education, art, keyboarding skills and music. To align with our mission of growing the whole person, students dive into scripture and devotions daily with the Character Formation Project. Additionally, students have the opportunity to participate in many co-curricular activities.
We are blessed to have specialized faculty members to support our staff and students including a Reading Specialist, Curriculum and Instructional Coach, Resource Teacher, Librarian, and School Counselor.
Communication is key to our daily functions. Special events are hosted to bridge the gap between school and home, making your student feel the most comfortable.
Before the school year begins your homeroom teacher will visit your home to begin the relationship with your student. From there, our Charger Night gives families the opportunity to come to school before the first day of school, see their classroom, visit with their peers, and organize their supplies. Throughout the school year parents are able to stay connected to their child's day through blogs and applications like Seesaw that allows students to share their work with videos and photos.
Our community is built through parent involvement and relationships fostered by our Christ-centered message. Our volunteer organization, TEAMMATES, gives parents unlimited ways to be involved with the school and other parents from volunteering in the library to planning classroom parties or helping with our annual CCLS Carnival.
Additionally, students are strengthening bonds and cultivating a sense of community by attending a weekly Chapel service with their multi-grade worship family. Children feel secure and safe to share hardships through prayer groups and partners within their student community.
