Lower School

The Lower School at Crossroads Christian School includes students from kindergarten through fifth grades. The teachers and administration of the Lower School strive to provide a structured and nurturing environment, where the spiritual, social, and academic needs of all students can be addressed.

Lower School Curriculum Guide – Kindergarten-5th Grades (Updated 6/22/2018)

Lower School students receive grade-level
appropriate instruction in the following areas:

  • Bible
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Spelling
  • Math
  • Social Studies
  • Science

Each Lower School class has a daily opportunity to attend an enrichment class, called “specials,” which include the following:

  • Art
  • Music
  • Computer (K4-5th)
  • Library
  • PE

The Lower School family worships together each Tuesday morning in Chapel. The Lower School teachers offer after-school tutoring in various academic areas. The tutoring schedules are developed by each individual teacher. It is the desire of the Lower School teachers and administration to see spiritual, social, and academic growth in each child throughout the school year.

Lower School classes each enjoy a snack every day. Students are responsible for bringing in their own snack daily. Classes go to lunch on a staggered schedule. Our cafeteria offers a hot lunch each day, with a salad bar available daily, and a soup of the week available in the winter months. Ice cream, cookies, and other snacks are available for sale through the cafeteria as well. Lower School students may also bring their own lunch from home, and microwaves are available in the cafeteria for any heat-ups.

Lower School students have the opportunity throughout the school year to be involved in extracurricular activities. ACSI, one of our school’s accrediting agencies, sponsors a Spelling Bee and Math Olympics, both held in the spring. Students also participate in class field trips to various points of interest throughout the school year. Girls can join the Little Colts cheer squad (grades K4 – 3rd) or the Junior Colts cheer squad (4th & 5th grades) to help cheer on our basketball teams during the winter sports season. Lower School students also perform a Christmas musical and a spring musical each school year, which is always a real treat!
