The kindergarten classroom has a dedicated full-time teacher and teaching assistant to ensure that children make a smooth transition into elementary school. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and taught to explore strategies as they work toward independence using the “fruit of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control” as a model for Christian life. The classroom environment is loving, predictable, and FUN as students develop foundational academic skills that will prepare them for first grade and beyond!
Elementary School Overview (K-5)
Resurrection Lutheran School provides a learning environment that is academically rich for students in grades K-8. Each day, students experience a very special kind of learning atmosphere that has continued to strengthen and grow since RLS opened in 2002. At RLS the teachers, administration, church staff and parents work together to plant seeds in the hearts and minds of our students through discipline, respect, guidance, encouragement, sound educational strategies and daily modeling of Christian love.
At RLS, we follow the North Carolina State Standards as a baseline while integrating national standards and extension activities. We place a high value on writing with a focus from an early age. Or goal is to provide a rigorous core curriculum in the Lutheran tradition. Elementary students participate weekly in music, Spanish, physical education, media, technology, and art. While technology is utilized to engage students and enhance learning, RLS students are encouraged to take the initiative to examine their natural curiosity through a wide variety of rich learning experiences. Field trips, cultural arts programs, community service, differentiated classroom instruction, hands-on learning, collaboration, special activities, and a variety of extracurricular opportunities all contribute to a solid foundation in the elementary grades.
