1st Grade – 5th Grade

Laying the Foundation of Spiritual, Emotional, and Social Development

Riverside Christian School blends a nurturing environment with academic rigor to deliver age-appropriate education to students in grades K-5.

During these years, teachers work with parents to lay, and then build upon, the foundational skills to help students be successful in the core academic areas.

Throughout the day, students have classes for Bible, math, history, and science. Along with a language arts block consisting of reading, writing, spelling, and language/grammar.

Students also enjoy music, library, art, and physical education. Each grade is scheduled a minimum of one recess which is held outdoors when possible.

Chapel is an all-school activity that takes place every Wednesday morning (8:40-9:20), and parents are welcome to attend. Each teacher extends learning from the classroom to the community with a variety of field trips. 

Technology is also used to enhance the curriculum, with each student having a tablet for use in the classroom.
