In addition to classroom instruction, on-campus days for elementary students include integrated Biblical teaching, music, art, library, and P.E. Kindergarten-3rd grade parents are responsible for monitoring, reinforcing, and grading lessons provided by the classroom teacher on MWF. In general, parents of 4th grade students are responsible for monitoring, grading, and ensuring mastery of concepts, but teachers will assign more independent work in this grade. The time spent at home helps to ensure academic gaps are covered from a young age and allows parents to be directly involved in their child’s education.
Denton Calvary’s Elementary School program is designed to prepare K thru 4th-grade students to be successful Christian thinkers who love to learn and to partner with parents in all stages of their child’s academic and spiritual development.
