At Grace Community School we are proud of our “whole life” education. Basic to this whole life education are our reading and math programs. Our curriculum has a whole lot more than that, including manners training, non-denominational Bible lessons, song and story times, physical education, and organized games. That’s a lot, but did you know there is more?
We have a variety of additional fun, enriching programs your child can participate in:
Our American Kenpo Karate Class is a favorite of our students. By teaching self-discipline, Karate Class helps kids with behavior problems. Martial arts training increase kids’ coordination, strength, and flexibility. Students earn stars, belts, and stripes that they can take home as they progress through the levels. This is a great way for kids to get physical education, gain skills, and have fun at the same time!
Grace Community School’s Dance Class offers children the opportunity for exercise, development of motor and social skills, and muscle conditioning, all in an enjoyable environment! Each week kids learn the fundamental principles and techniques of ballet and jazz with their friends and our dance instructor. We also have an annual dance recital at our Christmas program!
In Grace Community School Music Class, kids learn the basics of music theory, reading music notes, and instrument playing. Music lessons build a child’s self-esteem, increase coordination, help with concentration, and even boost test scores. Music games make it fun to learn. Perhaps most importantly, being able to play music is an expertise that gives pleasure for a lifetime!
Piano lessons, available at some locations, are 30-minute, individual lessons in which students learn not only how to play songs, but also more advanced music theory and note reading — vital skills that apply to playing any musical instrument. It is amazing how much even young students can pick up! Our piano teachers use games and activities to keep things interesting.
These classes run year-round, and you can enroll at any time as long as we have space. Sign up for one of these programs, or all of them!
