Extracurricular Activities & Athletics

Co-Curricular Classes:

Library/Media Center

Exposing children to literature is an integral part of developing reading skills and a lifelong love for reading. Students are provided the opportunity to check out library books throughout the week and/or take Accelerated Reader Tests. Our media specialist focuses on computer-based skills such as typing and Internet safety.


Students at the 4-6 Campus attend music class each week.  Classes are devoted to music terms, elements, singing, and keyboarding skills. Liturgical music is introduced and taught to encourage students to actively and consciously participate in liturgical worship as a means of praying and praising God. Through the “Bluegrass in the Schools” instrument program students are given lessons on the banjo, mandolin, guitar, and fiddle. 


There is a long tradition within the Church that recognizes the longing to create beauty in collaboration with the Creator and to give expression by a means other than with words alone.  Young students love to express their individuality and creativity through art. Students at the 4-6 Campus go to Art Class for one hour each week. Students use many different mediums, techniques, and processes for creating art.
