This semester, our 6th graders are divided into gender-specific classes, known as Charm class for our girls, and Man-in-Demand for our boys. This is a long-standing tradition at our school that serves as a "rite of passage" for our graduating 6th graders. Our hope is that these classes will provide them with a firm foundation in Christ, as well as discuss practical topics they will face in the upcoming years.
Our girls are learning what it means to be a Godly woman in today'sworld. Some of the topics covered are inner beauty, healthy lifestyle choices, and friendships. Recently they enjoyed getting facials during their skincare field trip!
The boys are learning about the character of a Godly man, covering topics such as friendships, relationships with girls, the importance of church, and making wise choices.
Both guys and girls will also learn about table etiquette before their end-of-the-year luncheon later in May.
We ROCKED OUR SOCKS for Down Syndrome and raised $275 for Griffin's Run and Reece's Rainbow!! Thank you students and parents for your generous donations! 💚💛💚💛
Sixth grade students presented their STEM projects to the school on Friday during our annual SCIENCE FUN DAY!! These are projects they have been working on Fridays in STEM lab with Ms. Wisseman. The students in Kindergarten through 5th grade were able to experience hands-on learning through experiments presented by our 6th grade class. Our students learned about density, electricity, chemical reaction, energy, and much more. Thank you sixth grade!!
