Overview PDF Print E-mail

Faith focuses on the importance of Early Childhood Education.  Our teachers meet regularly to discuss developmental needs of all students.  With small class sizes, individualized instruction, a focus on multi-intelligence learning, and a caring community that teaches virtues-we are able to develop the whole child.  Parents have the option to enroll their students for part or all of the Pre-School through Kindergarten Prep programs.

In addition to our regular academic schedule our elementary students receive a virtue studies class, Japanese, PE, Chapel singing, and library skills.  Our pre-school program also benefits from Japanese and Music. 

WE NOW OFFER EXTENDED CARE!  Faith Lutheran School offers extended care before school and after school until 6:00!

Our classes offer a state aligned curriculum, state certified teachers, and FOSS Science kits at each level to provide hands on inquiry based experiments. 

Faith uses the Developmental Reading Assessment Program.  This instrument helps to identify a students reading level and provide specifics on how a child can predict, retell a story, respond to the story, and a child’s comprehension of what is read.  By assessing students with these instruments, teachers are able to assist students in choosing books at their level or to challenge students to improve their reading ability.  Classroom instruction combines phonics instruction with whole language to meet the needs of all learners.

Saxon Math at Faith Lutheran School
At Faith Lutheran School we believe in the importance of helping students to build a strong foundation in mathematics. Our elementary classes have adopted Saxon Math.
Using Saxon Math curriculum, students work toward mastery in three ways: by reviewing, maintaining and building upon previously learned skills; through direct, explicit instruction of new content, mathematical thinking and vocabulary; and by applying, reinforcing and demonstrating cumulative learning.
Our goal is to provide individualized instruction to each student that attends our school. During Math time we also use math center activities which are determined based on students’ needs. Centers provide opportunity for practice, enrichment, and remediation if needed.
Our K-3rd math program has four daily instructional components:
Math Meeting
Fact Practice
New Concept
Guided Class Practice / Homework
First Grade:
Students in first grade participate in a daily Math Meeting where skills relating to the calendar, counting, patterning, weather, graphing, time, money, place value, tallying, problem solving, and mental computation are practiced.
After the meeting strategies are presented to help students learn number facts. Children are encouraged to recall the facts through the use of pattern recognition. Students practice facts orally, by using manipulatives, fact cards, and fact sheets.
New concepts are then introduced thorough carefully selected group activities. Students use materials, engage in discussions, and work in cooperative groups to help each other learn.
Students then work with the teacher on the Guided Class Practice where the teacher is modeling how to solve problems. The next component is the nightly Homework which students are expected to work on independently. Both the Guided Class Practice and the Homework include a short practice of the new concept and a review of previously introduced concepts.
Second Grade:
Students in second grade participate in a daily Math Meeting where skills relating to the calendar, counting, patterning, temperature, graphing, time, money, place value, fact families, problem solving, and mental computation are practiced.
After the meeting strategies are presented to help students learn number facts. Children are encouraged to recall the facts through the use of pattern recognition. Students practice facts orally, by using manipulatives, fact cards, and fact sheets.
New concepts are then introduced thorough carefully selected group activities. Students use materials, engage in discussions, and work in cooperative groups to help each other learn. Students then work with the teacher on the Guided Class Practice where the teacher is modeling how to solve problems. The next component is the nightly Homework which students are expected to work on independently. Both the Guided Class Practice and the Homework include a short practice of the new concept and a review of previously introduced concepts.
Third Grade:
Students in third grade participate in a daily Math Meeting where skills relating to the calendar, counting, patterning, temperature, graphing, time, money, place value, pre-algebra, problem solving using specific strategies and mental computation are practiced.
After the meeting, students move into Fact Practice. Mastering number facts is vital to success in mathematics. In third grade multisensory methods are used to help children practice and automate recall. Strategies are presented and pattern recognition is used. Students practice facts using manipulatives, fact cards, and fact sheets. Automatic recall is expected by the end of third grade.
New concepts are introduced thorough carefully selected group activities. Students use materials, engage in discussions, and work in cooperative groups to help each other learn.
Students then work with the teacher on the Guided Class Practice where the teacher is modeling how to solve problems. The next component is the nightly Homework which students are expected to work on independently. Both the Guided Class Practice and the Homework include a short practice of the new concept and a review of previously introduced concepts.
Fourth Grade:
In fourth grade we use a textbook-based program with embedded differentiated instruction. We focus on problem solving, real world applications and meaningful hands on activities.  Students learn to reason, communicate mathematically and make connections using the Saxon Math program.
A Balanced Approach to Literacy
At FLS we believe in the importance of individualized instruction. Rather than using a standard text book that all students read, our literacy program consists of utilizing many instructional tools to meet each student at their level. Students choose “just right” books from a variety of genres at a level that is appropriate for them. Students are responsible for keeping a reading record and teachers conference weekly with each student where they work together to establish specific reading goals and the teacher can monitor comprehension.
Kindergarten:
Literacy is taught using Zoo Phonics, read aloud, shared reading, shared writing, journal writing, leveled classroom libraries, weekly reading conferences and DRA.
First Grade:
Literacy is taught using word study with Zoo Phonics, read aloud, shared reading, shared writing, journal writing, leveled classroom libraries, weekly reading conferences DRA and SRA.
Second Grade:
Literacy is taught using Words Their Way for word study, read aloud, author study, shared reading, shared writing, journal writing, leveled classroom libraries, weekly reading conferences, DRA, SRA, and Accelerated Reader.
Third Grade:
Literacy is taught using Words Their Way for word study, read aloud, poetry, shared reading, literature studies, shared writing, journal writing, leveled classroom libraries, weekly reading conferences, literacy circles, DRA, SRA, and Accelerated Reader.
Fourth and Fifth Grade:
Literacy is taught using Words Their Way for word study, read aloud, poetry, shared reading, literature studies, shared writing, journal writing, leveled classroom libraries, weekly reading conferences, literacy circles, DRA, SRA, and Accelerated Reader.
