Elementary Programs - Grades PK-6

Grades PK-3 are considered lower elementary and grades 4-6 are upper elementary.  We provide a variety of activities and opportunities for students at all elementary levels.  Our elementary students are also participants in our monthly all school chapel services, assist with our student led See You at the Pole event and more.   

Pre-Kindergarten

Our Pre-Kindergarten program is a half day program beginning at 8:05am and ending at 11:35am.  Families have a choice to enroll students for a 3 day option (Tuesday-Thursday) or a full 5 day a week program.  Our PK students learn to adjust to a school routine while academically focusing on alphabet sounds, number, shapes, and more.

Our PK students are integrated into many of our school activities including our Grandparents and Veterans Day event and our Christmas Program.  The class partners with our 6th grade students in one of our two reading buddy programs. The 6th grade students visit the PK class on a regular basis to read to them.

Students must be age 4 by September 10 of the school year to begin enrollment in our PK program.

 

Lower Elementary

Grades K-3 are the lower elementary program.  Students gather weekly for a shared chapel service which often features  puppetry to illustrate Bible stories and lessons.  The lower elementary classes also participate in our monthly all school chapel services for grades K-12. Lower elementary students attend specials including art, music and technology along with daily physical education classes. 

In addition, grades 1-3 paticipate in our speech meet and annually visit local retirement homes to sing and bring joy to residents.  Other activities throughout the year include a variety of field trips and a service focused missions week each spring.  Our 2nd grade class are 'buddies' of the senior class and share time together throughout the year with reading and classroom activities and shared holidays. Students in each grade have daily Bible instruction and weekly scripture memorization as part of their curriculum.


 

Upper Elementary Grades 4-6

Grades 4-6 are the upper elementary programs.  The upper elementary operates with a departmentalization model which provides students an opportunity for instruction from each of the three homeroom teachers (grades 4, 5 & 6).  Students attend daily Bible class with their grade appropriate homeroom teacher but also receive academic instruction from each of the three teachers.  This model has provided an opportunity to enhance instruction in each of the core areas of language arts, mathematics, history and science and prepares students for classroom changes at the middle school level.

Upper elementary students also attend art, music and technology specials and have a daily physical education class.

The three grades share a weekly chapel service which usually focuses on a time of worship and a group Bible study and they participate in our all school chapel services, Grandparents and Veterans Day Event, Spring Banquet and our annual missions week along with several other activities.

Our students in upper elemetnary have a variety of extra curricular opportunities available to them including participating in FIRST LEGO League, Parochial League Basketball (boys and girls), and we offer an Elementary Student Council Program.

Our students also participate in a variety of academic events including the annual Living Wax Museum, Science Fair, Bible Bowl, Geography and Spelling Bees and an assortment of field trips nad educational experiences outside of the classroom. 4th grade students partner with the Montana Fish, Wildlife, and Parks to participate in the Hooked on Fishing program which provides education about fishing, habit, and includes hands on experiences such as fish dissection, fly tying and ice fishing. 5th grade students participate in the Montana Air Guard Starbase program and the 6th grade class participates in a reading buddies program with our PK class.
