Kindergarten: Christine Arnold 16 weeks

This year our kinder class will be learning all about the world around them...from the seasonal changes God has made in our world, to plant and animal life and even a little bit about our solar system... this year is going to truly be out of this world! We will be learning through our daily rug time (i.e. Calendar, prayer, etc), songs, Bible, art, story time, and so much more!!! I am both blessed to have this opportunity to teach your kids and honored that you would trust me and my ability to teach them this year.

I have my B.A. in Liberal Studies and had previously worked as an ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) therapist for almost 3 years. I took a sabbatical from work when my husband and I started our family and I have homeschooled our 2 boys for the past 4 years. I have also been a substitute teacher at Cornerstone Christian and recently became a sub at Western Christian PSP for Tuesday and Friday schools.

I am looking forward to meeting all of your wonderful kiddos!

IMPACT—“Service, Community, and Fun.” Middle School Class for 6-8th Grade

Impact is an exciting new class just for Middle School students. The goal of Impact is to give back and

serve the students at Western Christian PSP. The students in Impact work to raise school spirit, community,

and student involvement in service projects. In addition, we will develop deeper community by planning

events for 6th-8th graders. Impact students who enroll do so because they recognize that there is more to being successful in school than simply doing homework. Having a positive atmosphere where students feel wanted and accepted is critical to their success. To that end, the members of Impact will focus on providing engaging activities that ensure a well-rounded middle school experience monthly. Impact will help to develop organizational and communication skills. We will have a strong focus on Godly character, service and community.

Being an Impact member is easy! If you will be in 6th-8th grade, all you have to do is fill out an application and get an interview. Each Spring, Impact will elect class officers to represent the group. You have the option of running for an office or just be an appointed member. Everyone has a role in Impact and you should become a part of it! Impact is composed of students that are in 6th-8th grade. Space is limited! Apply NOW for Fall!
