1st, 2nd, & 3rd Grades
Students in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grades are housed together in blended classrooms and have weekly plans that list the assignments they are expected to complete on their own. Children learn to focus and manage their time as they work independently throughout the day. Additionally, students gather in small groups to receive lessons from their teacher. When work is completed, children may choose activities such as art, reading, or special interests.
Our 1st-3rd graders take a yearly overnight trip to Camp Hanes. This is a YMCA camp located north of Winston-Salem with 400 acres of field, forest, lakes, and mountains. It offers students the opportunity to hike, study geology, forest ecology and the wildlife. Their days are filled with wonderful hands-on learning experiences, while the evenings are filled with group activities such as singing around the campfire.
