Gordon Smith – Principal & 5-8 Teacher

Desire of Ages Chapter 80

Grades 5 – 8 are a great group of students! We are a family in this classroom, and seek an active, growing and personal relationship with Jesus Christ above all else.

In addition to the strong core academics taught, we offer a variety of classes & tools to enrich their knowledge and develop their skills for the future…

Music: Private lessons for piano, guitar, and band instruments are available. Some of our 7th & 8th grade students even participate in the academy band and choir! We also use guitars and other instruments to sing hymns and praises throughout the week.

Physical Education: During the winter we go ski at a local mountain four times! For daily P.E., we learn a variety of sports, and are able to utilize UCA’s gymnasium during inclement weather. Also, some of our 7th & 8th grade students tryout for and participate in the academy’s junior varsity sports programs!img_2209

Languages: Spanish (taught periodically by Academy students). Duolingo is also used in class.

 

Technology: We use Google Apps for Education, typing software, filtered internet access for research, and engaging audio & visual media to supplement our learning. We have computers (Macs & PCs), an ipad,  Students also use Adobe CS6 for the yearbook.

 

Tutoring: offered across the street at UCA (contact librarian: 509-245-3610).
