At SJEDS, we believe in encouraging different interests and talents as part of a well-rounded education. Students visit resource classes at least once a day–sometimes as much as three times a day–as part of the overall curriculum. We are proud to offer instruction in the following subjects:
Art is taught weekly for first through sixth grade and woven into the curriculum for Pre-K 3, Pre-K 4 and Kindergarten. SJEDS has an excellent elementary studio art program where students eare able to express themselves creatively while learning the fundamentals of art. Your child will produce works of art that will be treasured for a lifetime. Learn more about our studio art program.
Kingdom Theatre is a unique program found only at SJEDS, where drama techniques are taught using the stories of the Bible and Biblical teachings. All students, from Pre-K3 through sixth grade participate in Kingdom Theatre on a weekly basis. Learn more about our Kingdom Theatre program.
At SJEDS we value literacy and nowhere is this more evident than in our library. All students experience the joy of reading through weekly library visits filled with storytime and exploration. Our librarian knows our students and their reading interests and assists them in learning to locate and use resources. Students make independent selections to enjoy at home.
Voice, instrument and theory are the core of our music curriculum. Pre-K3 through 6th grade attend music on a weekly basis. By participating in musicals and performances, students come alive and often hidden talents emerge. These opportunities provide a time for everyone to shine! Learn more about our music program.
Our physical education program encourages the importance of an active and healthy lifestyle, good sportsmanship and learning the rules of the game. Each day students in grades Pre-K 3 through third grade have a structured P.E. class or playground time, and fourth through sixth graders go to P.E. or have playground time four times per week.
Our Spanish program is an interactive, hands-on program where students learn an appreciation of Hispanic cultures and gain an introduction to the Spanish language. Learning occurs through stories, music, role playing, conversation and translation. Pre-K 3 through third grade attend Spanish once a week, fourth and fifth grades twice a week and sixth grade three times a week.
