Servant Leadership- For the Students, By the Students
This class is built on the principles of how Christ served. It has the underpinnings of grace and kindness – which are much needed ingredients in our society today. Our students will discover their strengths and how they can best be used to serve others in a leadership role. This class will include choosing a project the students are passionate about and engaging in activities to help their ideas come to fruition. We will explore a variety of ways to make a difference in the world.
Science – Nutrition and Gardening
In this class students will learn about essential nutrients, nutrients that must come from food and are vital for disease prevention, growth and good health. Students will learn how to select the most nutrient dense foods and how to use various gardening methods to grow their own. Together we will explore vertical and aeroponic gardening and help build community garden beds, all while “taste testing” along the way.
PE will focus on “functional” patterns of movement, the fundamental gross and fine motor skills needed for physical and mental development. Students will participate in games and guided activities that help develop coordination and agility, as well as cooperation and teamwork.
In this music class, students will be given an introduction to playing, reading, and performing music as we learn to play the ukulele! We will learn about the language of music build a foundation for music theory while we dive right and learn to play songs together as a group. Students will learn how to practice, how to listen to each other, and how to take care of our instruments. We will explore a variety of styles and build confidence together, then we will bring it all together at the end of the year to perform what we have learned.
