All of our students spend two days in chapel each week listening to Bible stories, singing, and learning of God’s love for them. Students that are in the toddler through 3-year-old classrooms spend time with Ms. Donna Zipp, the Children’s Minister at St. Paul Lutheran Church. The PreK 4 and Bridge students head up to the sanctuary to learn about God’s word from St. Paul Lutheran Church Pastor Lee Harder.
At St. Paul Lutheran Christian Day School, the goal of our science curriculum is centered around developing well-rounded students who are excited about learning, curious about the world God has given them, and prepared for their future educational experiences.
Through our hands-on science curriculum, we infuse interactive play-based experiences that introduce students to concepts integral to Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Environmental and Earth Science learning. Laboratory safety and design are also introduced and infused in the learning opportunities our science program provides through its multi-sensory, experiential structure. It encourages observation, classification, communication, and experimentation.
We aim to provide relevant lessons with far-reaching life-skills valuable to everyday activities. These skills help children generate ideas, make decisions using evidence, learn and work cooperatively with others, and encourage their natural curiosity, intellectual development, and spiritual growth. Through the learning provided by our science programs, we can generate confident, responsible, encouraged learners into the next chapter of their educational careers.
Each week, twice a week, children three and older come to the gym to engage in activities that exercise both their muscles and their minds. We encourage our students to learn how to stay fit, both mentally and physically, through proper health practices and exercise. Physical education improves a student’s confidence through the development of physical and social skills. It also helps to develop a student’s fitness and fosters a desire to continue physical activity throughout their life.
