Elementary Academics

St. Paul’s Lutheran School provides the secure, nurturing environment that elementary school-age children need to explore and experiment. Our Christian-based programs strive to instill a life-long love of learning and a quest for knowledge among elementary school students from Kindergarten through 5th grade.
Elementary level students take math, science, English/writing, history, Spanish, and religion. In addition other academic courses they have daily specials in the arts and biweekly physical education. Daily recess and twice daily recess in K – 2 grade provides children with the much needed break in the day to recharge.  Our reading program uses sight words, contextual clues, and phonics. The goal of our math program is to develop a solid foundation through hands-on experiences and discussion. Students learn to excel in solving problems, engaging ideas and creating solutions. Our students become active thinkers, makers and explorers of ideas. They accomplish this through academic skill development, imaginative abstract thinking, organization and discipline.
Students are taught in self-contained classrooms with some departmentalization. Students annually celebrate a variety of special events within the classroom including an annual geography and history fair. Parents are always welcome to participate in class activities.
