Private Elementary School in Huntington, WV
Kindergarten is an important year of building foundations. Our most important academic task is learning how to read. Some people think kindergarten is all fun and games. What they don't realize is that there is a TON of LEARNING going on throughout all of our fun and games. After polling some professional kindergarteners, the results are in. Kindergarteners love Bible Time, Calender, Reading, Review, Recess, and most importantly God. Three cheers for the awesome grade of KINDERGARTEN.
First things first. This simple slogan has significant meaning for the first grade students at Grace Christian School! Little ones are taught to seek God first in all things and to understand His saving grace and His grace for living a life that is pleasing to Him. The foundational skills that are first developed in math and in the language arts (including English, reading, spelling and writing) provide the base of knowledge and understanding for new learning to take place in the years to come. From penguins and cowboys to the circus and weather, new concepts are introduced and developed through these and other engaging themes. Science, history, music, computer, physical education and art augment the program to make for exceptional year of learning in the all- important first grade year!
You are going to LOVE Second Grade at GCS! We call ourselves Camp Sunshine and enjoy a fun camping theme complete with forest animal mascots! In Second Grade you will read about incredible people, exciting animals, historical events, and hilarious poems and plays. We use our math skills to tell time, use money, read graphs, add, subtract, multiply and divide! We have the best Bible time as we discuss real men and women of God who served Him no matter what it took. Our science lessons are thrilling as we master the scientific method and explore the world of dinosaurs, animal habitats, and the human body. Heritage Studies will blow you away with an amazing unit on the Revolutionary War. Simply put, Second Grade is the place to live, learn, laugh, and love God and each other!!!
Third graders are the best! We begin making application to the fundamentals taught in Pre-kindergarten through second grade. We also work on the mastery of multiplication facts. Third grade concentrates on grammar, creative writing, and reading comprehension. We enjoy learning about God's world in science, and we actually fight the Civil War in Heritage Studies class. Third graders are studying God's word, and learning to apply those truths to everyday life. Learning is fun in third grade!
Fourth Grade is always a fantastic year of school, and this year is no exception! Fourth graders learn many fascinating things in math, science, Heritage Studies, Bible, English, spelling, and reading. They also participate in music, art, computer, and P.E. classes each week. Our fourth graders are an intelligent and exciting group of students!!
Fifth grade is a wonderful year in school! The age group is a fun time where students are transitioning from elementary and getting ready for middle school. This year’s class is unique in that there are twenty-nine students!!! The class is divided into two groups with two teachers. The students get to experience changing classes and they love it! Mr. Hale teaches Bible, History, Science, and English. Mrs. Nicholas teaches Math, Handwriting, Reading, and Spelling. The students get to combine together for special classes, recess, lunch, and special activities. Both teachers enjoy teaching fifth grade and love the students' senses of humor, their hard work, and their willingness to please.
