Elementary Specials

Each week elementary students attend a physical education, art, music, and library class, taught by trained teachers in each field of study. Students in grades one through five also attend computer class. Students in grades two through five attend Spanish classes. Students in kindergarten and grade one take part in a morning program called The Stimulating Maturity through Accelerated Readiness Training (S.M.A.R.T.). S.M.A.R.T. is a ten minute class that uses a multi-sensory approach to learning. The program develops and enhances the physiological and neurological readiness skills that students need to do well in school. The activities are designed to develop and improve the students large and fine motor skills, visual perception, and eye-hand coordination. The activities used for the program are fun, and yet challenging, for the students.

Music  (Click for Elementary Instrumental Music Program)
Elementary students have the opportunity to play a musical instrument starting in fourth grade and participate in band, orchestra, and chorus. These programs are designed to teach the fundamentals of instrumental and vocal music. Students strive for excellence, both individually and as a group.

Art
Art classes emphasize individual creativity since we are made in the image of a creative God. LCCS Traditional Campus art classes emphasize the elements of art and principles of design. Art history is incorporated into hands-on application of many art media.


The LCCS Traditional Campus has two Media Centers. The elementary school library has a warm and inviting atmosphere. It contains over 14,000 items and additions are added on a regular basis. Elementary students in pre-kindergarten through grade 5 enjoy one library class per week. Class time is devoted to story time, teaching library skills, and book exchanges. Students are encouraged to check out at least one book during each visit. The librarian endeavors to integrate classroom units of study with resources from the library collection. The library is an integral part of the education progress. 

 
The high school Media Center includes a 25-station computer lab and netbooks available for students to use. 

Physical Education
Physical education is a vital part of equipping students to love God with all their strength. Fitness training and physical skills development, along with many games, are incorporated each week into physical education class.
