LOWER SCHOOL SUPPLY LISTS 2023-2024
Elementary school at Calvary provides students with a sound preparation for higher education.
Emphasis continues to be placed on instruction in a Christian environment, which begins in our Preschool Department. Elementary teachers strive to foster a supportive atmosphere giving students the opportunity to develop independence and self-confidence while challenging them to think critically and to solve problems. Consideration is given to the development and nurture of the whole child — spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally, and socially.
Entry Age: A child must be 5-years-old on or before September 1 to enter our K5 class. The school will verify age before enrollment with the student's birth certificate.
Grade specific and self paced, Tynker’s interactive curriculum allows students to learn computer language by creatively applying coding concepts to core subjects. The online platform is designed to teach students computational thinking and computer science through games and stories. With automatic mastery tracking, students learn the fundamentals of programming found in all object oriented programming languages. Tynker lessons not only make it fun and easy for students to understand abstract programming concepts, but also allows them to apply acquired concepts to different projects, games, and scenarios. Tynker’s goal is to provide every student with a solid foundation in STEM thinking abilities in order to prepare them for 21st century degrees and careers.
