Grade 3 & 4

These grades provide increased possibilities for collaborative learning toward common and meaningful goals.

Grade 3 & 4

In Grades 3 and 4, students begin to think more independently, marking an important stage where they can be expected to step up to meet greater academic demands and take increased ownership of learning goals and success criteria.

Students continue to be encouraged to ask good questions and gain skills in research and investigation to find answers. These grades provide increased possibilities for collaborative learning toward common and meaningful goals. Hands-on learning and project work provide opportunities to gain knowledge and to celebrate learning.

Third and fourth graders continue to develop their ability to work independently, in small groups, and as a whole class. At this age, social relationships grow in their importance.

As personal understanding of God and His world develops, students are often ready to be challenged in expressing a personal faith and reach higher expectations of character integrity.

Marc believes that Christian Education is true, comprehensive education. Students have minds, bodies, souls and spirits, but in secular education only half the child is educated. A child’s spirit and soul is so often left without nurture and direction. Through Christian education, a child can internalize Jesus’ message of grace: while we all “mess up” daily, his sacrifice on the cross will cover all wrongdoings… and now we can all live in this spiritual and emotional freedom!

Growing up I always knew that I wanted to be a teacher but I never envisioned myself teaching in a Christian School. I am so thankful that 25 years ago God opened the door for me to start my teaching career in a Christian school. Now I cannot envision teaching without the freedom to openly share my faith, my love for God and to invite and encourage children to find their place in God’s story. In my years in Christian Education I have experience teaching in all of the elementary grades from Kindergarten to grade 8 as well as humbling serving as a principal for 12 years. It is a great joy each day to walk in the classroom and to spend my days learning alongside my students. Everyday is a great day to be at school!
