Park Christian School strives to provide supportive and challenging atmosphere that promotes active learning, knowledgeable teachers who care about their students, and integrate the truth of God's Word into every subject. These three elements are present when a child begins kindergarten and continues until they finishes their senior year. By the time students complete their Park Christian School careers, they are well equipped to impact the world with their God-given potential.

In addition to the key skills taught in English language arts, mathematics, Bible, history, and science, students also participate in art, music, band, health/physical education, and computer lab. Elementary students meet for chapel every other week. Although academics are the core of our mission, we recognize that a school environment offers unique opportunities for a well-rounded social, spiritual and emotional life. Opportunities are available, giving students experience in serving others. Examples of past projects include: visiting nursing care facilities, supporting our troops and other mission outreaches.


Grades K-6 Curriculum Content

BIBLE

Students study the Bible as the infallible and inspired Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16) and examine ways to apply its principles to daily life. The Bible curriculum provides opportunities for students to come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ and grow in their knowledge of Him. Students are taught how Bible knowledge is relevant to all subject areas and are encouraged to develop a Biblical worldview.

Themes integrated throughout the Bible curriculum are:

  • Age-appropriate theological training
  • Bible study skills
  • Biweekly Chapel programs
  • Community service and missionary projects
  • Memorization of Scripture
  • Prayer
  • Praise and worship opportunities

ENGLISH/LANGUAGE ARTS

English is the study of language, structure, and literature. The English curriculum includes the study of grammar (parts of speech, punctuation, and their mechanics/usage), composition, listening, speaking, critical thinking skills, and the study of various literary genres. These essential skills enable students to effectively communicate Biblical truths and evaluate literary resources from a Biblical worldview (Jeremiah 1:4-9). At the elementary level, the Language Arts components include: reading, spelling, English, and handwriting. The elementary reading program emphasizes the use of phonics as a precursor to successful reading. Opportunities to utilize English skills are integrated into all other subject areas.


FINE ARTS - MUSIC

The goal of the music program is to equip students with the necessary skills, knowledge, discernment, attitudes, and character to be active musical participants and informed, discriminating musical listeners (Philippians 4:8). The musical skills of singing, playing instruments, listening, reading, writing, and composing are taught through the use of classroom texts, musical games, supplemental music, rhythm and pitched instruments, listening assignments, and written exercises. The music utilized in the curriculum represents diverse time periods, styles, forms, and cultures. Students have general music instruction twice a week. All fourth grade students participate in choir. Band and choir are offered as electives in grades 5 and 6.


FINE ARTS - VISUAL ARTS

The visual arts program provides opportunities for students to develop their creative abilities and to study the four foundational disciplines: aesthetics, art criticism, art history, and art production. The ability to create and express oneself has been given to us by God (Genesis 5:1). Visual arts activities include drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, and works in paper and other materials. Original artwork from students may be exhibited in area competitions and on websites. Students receive visual arts instruction twice a month.


HEALTH AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Through the physical education program (P.E.), students develop skills to maintain a lifetime of health, fitness, strength, and movement. Cooperative and competitive activities build a student physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually. This approach compliments the Park Christian School philosophy to minister to the whole child - body, mind and spirit (Luke 2:52). Basic skills are introduced in the lower elementary grades and continue to develop as students are involved in team-oriented activities in upper elementary grades. Christ-like qualities such as honesty, fairness, humility, sportsmanship, teamwork, cooperation, encouragement, and self-control are integrated with physical activities. Students have P.E. classes several times a week. Beginning in fourth grade, students may participate in extra-curricular sport activities including: basketball, volleyball and track.


MATHEMATICS

Through the study of mathematics, students develop an appreciation that, although God's world is complex, it can be analyzed and studied mathematically and that mathematics is reflected in the creation of the world. Critical and logical reasoning, creative and visual thinking skills, and decision-making abilities are developed throughout the math curriculum. Math classes enable students to acquire the mathematical skills, understandings, and attitudes that they will need to be successful in their careers and daily lives. Students solve real-life problems, reason effectively and make logical connections between classroom instruction and real-world applications.


MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY

The media and technology program allows students to explore God's world through print and electronic media. This instruction prepares students for the technology-driven world they will encounter in future careers and personal life. At the elementary level, library skills are introduced along with keyboarding, word processing, presentation software, and desktop publishing skills with an emphasis on responsible use of the Internet. Students are taught how to ethically use information from a variety of sources and media as they gather, synthesize, and disseminate information and ideas. Students have opportunities to integrate research skills into other subject areas by using a variety of technological resources on class assignments.


SCIENCE

God is the master designer and sustainer of the universe (Nehemiah 9:6). Developing a foundation of scientific principles with a Biblical perspective allows students to understand the world and become faithful stewards of what God has created (Psalm 8:3-4). The umbrella of science includes life science, astronomy, geology, meteorology, chemistry, physics, human anatomy, and environmental science. Use of a spiral curriculum allows students to delve deeper into each scientific discipline in subsequent years. The scientific method is used by students as they perform experiments and labs.


SOCIAL SCIENCE

God is the God of the past, present, and future. The social science curriculum weaves history, geography, civics, economics, biblical history, and current events together from a Biblical worldview recognizing God as the creator, sustainer, and possessor of the world and its people (Psalm 24:1). Social science concepts are presented using a variety of teaching methods (i.e. field trips, speakers, technology, projects, drama and hands-on activities). Opportunities are provided for students to integrate social science concepts with other subject areas and everyday experiences.
