Students are introduced to two-and three-dimensional media to express their ideas and interpret their world imaginatively and creatively. Art activities encourage experimentation, growth in skills, and awareness of design principles in art and their environment.
The program for Primers focuses on love, respect, honesty, tolerance, empathy, and forgiveness. The students also study about Creation, God’s laws, and Jesus’ miracles, all of which create a foundation to build upon during their thirteen years at CCES.Health
Healthy habits are reinforced throughout our school. Students in Primer are taught the basic food groups, the importance of staying hydrated, as well as the difference between bullying and teasing. They also study landfills, recycling, and noise pollution.Library
Students learn how books, magazines, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and atlases can be used to enhance and extend their knowledge of the content simultaneously taught in the classroom. By the end of Primer, students are able, with the help of marker cards, to select their own books from different areas of the library.Technology
Our technology program correlates with the skills that are being developed in the classroom. It introduces and builds computer literacy skills that are utilized through the P-12 program. Primers also use Smart Boards, iPads, and are exposed to keyboarding.
At the Primer level, physical education begins the foundation of a positive attitude toward a healthy body and physical fitness. Primers participate in basic locomotive movement skills, spatial awareness activities, basic tumbling, cooperation skills, and basic rhythm activities.
