Elementary

Welcome to WellSpring Elementary – a place where the joy and rigor of learning intersect. Our dynamic community of teachers is committed to seeing students thrive as they become innovative thinkers, skillful communicators, and courageous leaders. Come see students learn to problem solve and think critically as they actively participate in the learning process. Listen in as both teachers and students ask questions, exploring and investigating together. Watch as young students learn to communicate skillfully in written, verbal, and aesthetic forms of expression. Stand amazed as students learn to make wise choices in leading themselves and practice leading peers.

Having worked in education for 35 years, I am passionate about seeing students become young men and women of character who love to learn and are able to lead others. I invite you to come join us on the journey and see your child grow and thrive.

CURRICULUM

The elementary school curriculum uses teacher-directed study/ learning activities in character education, language arts, phonics, science, social studies,  Arabic, Math, Islamic studies, physical education, technology, art, and music. The child moves from concrete experiences to increasingly more complex levels of abstraction in critical thinking. Skills related to each area build upon previous learning and measurable performance objectives.

Islamic Studies and Arabic Social Studies

Classes in Islamic studies and Arabic social studies begin in Grade 1 with the option for Non-Muslim students to opt out if they choose.

Music

Our music classes bring students together with the opportunity to learn and develop new skills through participatory music education.

Physical Education

The focus on physical education in the elementary grades is the development of large muscle skills and flexibility through play-based movement along with a beginning understanding of nutrition and fitness.

Use of Technology

Technology is introduced into our elementary classes through the use of tablets in activity centers and planned learning tasks. The school provides a robust wireless network throughout the building.

Art

In art class students interact with basic materials and techniques giving them a foundation for the visual arts. Art allows students to uniquely express themselves, creating a foundation to become independent and creative.

English Language Learner Support

Our English language learners get the personal attention needed to progress in English fluency. The elementary ESL program supports non-native English speakers from Grade 2 to Grade 6 who are not yet academically fluent in English.
