Please Join our Prayer Partners

Mrs. Carol Cook has led a group of parents for the last few years who are committed to praying for our students, staff, board and the various needs of the school. Moms in Prayer quietly has done and continues to do a yeoman’s job of supporting the school in this critical ministry. This is Mrs. Cook’s final year at the school, as her youngest child will be graduating and moving on to college. If you feel prayer is a ministry you would like to become involved in or lead please contact the office and they will put you in touch with Mrs. Cook.

Next Sunday evening at 5:00 we will be praying as a school for all things LCS and thanking God for all he has done and is continuing to bless us with this year. We will meet in room 6 at 5:00 p..m. and finish by 6:00 p.m. We’d love to have you join us. Just drop in and enjoy the hearts of other LCS families as we acknowledge the importance of God in our school.

Chapman's Chit Chat

Miss Chapman has taught school for over 25 years, and most of those years have been at LCS. Purposeful Design Math is taught using a traditional approach with a textbook, lecture notes, and daily practice. We do not use a "new" math approach found in many schools today. We teach math in likely the same manner it was taught when today's parents went through school. MOSDOS reading curriculum contains stories which teach character as well as comprehension and analysis of structures such as figures of speech. We read a few novels, one of which is C.S. Lewis' book The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Discussion focuses on responding to the literature through a biblical worldview even if the story is not a Chrisitian text. A Beka history for fifth grade focuses on Old World History and is written from a biblical perspective. We learn about ancient cultures - beginning with Mesopotamia (as it relates to the Bible account) but also all the other major groups such as Ancient Egypt, Ancient India, Ancient China, and then finishing with Ancient Greece and Rome to the time of the Christ. All through the text is the idea that Jesus is the person on which all of history hangs from BC to AD. We do learn about other religions in these ancient cultures but we discuss how they are empty religious rituals and do not have the ability to save a person's soul like Jesus can. Science is currently a secular text but we will have a new Christian curriculum beginning in the fall of 2021. At the time of purchase of the current one, it seemed to be the best option in terms of content that was rigorous. I skip some chapters that contain ideas such as geology that focus on millions of years and instead create my own units of study from a biblical perspective to learn about the layers of the earth. I teach science from a biblical perspective taking the book of Genesis at face value that the earth is between 4000-10,000 years old and not millions of years. LCS supports the concept of a worldwide flood during the time of Noah that changed weather, climate, and the layers of the earth. These are some of the more controversial topics, but we also learn about cells, human body systems, moon phases, ecology, and physical science topics such as matter, forces, motion, and work. IEW is the current writing curriculum, but I am unable to teach every unit in that curriculum due to time limitations. I teach students how to do formal research papers using this method as well as requiring dress-ups and sentence openers in paragraph writing in other subject areas. We also use A Beka grammar, and I focus on daily oral language where students edit sentences daily to correct errors. Purposeful Design Spelling has word lists developed around the idea of phonics or spelling rules and prefixes/suffixes. We have a weekly list in which students are tested and practice with workbook pages. The Bible curriculum is from Positive Action with a weekly theme in which each book of the Old Testament is studied to provide a brief survey of each Old Testament book. We also memorize scripture verse passages each week to hide God's Word in our hearts. The history and Bible dovetail extremely well in 5th grade. We also have an annual speech meet for elementary students where they memorize a poem, scripture, or patriotic speech to present to the class to support speaking skills.
