New Elementary Writing Curriculum Builds Foundations for the Next Level

By Joyce Blum, CCS Director of Student Learning

This year Cascade Christian Schools adopted a new writing curriculum at the elementary level. The goal is to make sure students are trained to be effective communicators – even as young as Kindergarten. The teachers have worked hard to help our students in the areas of narrative, research and opinion/persuasive writing this year. Last Friday I witnessed the great partnership our teachers have with one another across the district.

Similar planning was taking place in Kindergarten through 3rd grades. Each grade level met as a team and began the process of laying out a strong unit on opinion/persuasive writing. The work the teachers began on Friday will be completed on March 31 as they meet as teams in the morning.

I was also able sit in on a meeting that involved all the 7th-12th grade teachers. One of the topics they discussed was effective communication. The foundations we are laying for your child in elementary school will be utilized and built upon when they move into our Junior High and on into High School. Effective communication is a life skill, and purposefully educating your student in this area from K-12th grade is a way to make sure they graduate from Cascade Christian ready to impact their world.

Again, thank you for entrusting us to prepare your child for the next grade and educational level.
