Because field trips are proven to be a sound teaching device.
The four year old classes take field trips related to their units of study. Transportation is provided by the Redeemer school bus.
The four year old classes visit places such as fire station, the theater, and local parks.
The toddler, two, and three year old classes have special activities and presenters come to the school campus for in-house field trips.
A few of the special presentations for our younger classes include a petting zoo, train rides, a mobile planetarium, and talks from fire fighters, police officers, and doctors.
Our school year is full of special activities and events designed to create many fun-filled memories for students and their families.
Teachers organize class parties around numerous holidays throughout the year. Parents are encouraged to attend & assist with these parties.
Each year a school-wide Grandparents' Day is held. Students are encouraged to invite a grandparent or special loved one to attend. These special visitors have an opportunity to participate in a special chapel, book fair, reception, photos, and classroom activities with the students.
Each year our Parent Teacher League (PTL) sponsors a Trike-A-Thon to raise money for programs the PTL supports at Redeemer Lutheran School. Preschoolers purchase special Trike-A-Thon t-shirts and wear them the day of the event. Our upper parking lot becomes the trike raceway, and our little ones bring their trikes and bikes to school. They have a fabulous time racing 'round and 'round the Trike-A-Thon track.
School Spirit Weeks
Twice a year we have a School Spirit Week in which we celebrate the blessing of our school. Special activities are planned and fun dress-up days are included. Students and teachers enjoy dressing a little "differently" than they do most school days. Some past dress-up days include Crazy Hair Day, Favorite Team Day, Decade Day, and Camo Day.
Preschool Graduation & Closing Ceremony
Our school year concludes each year with a special program in which all of our preschool students perform and participate. The program is focused around a special theme and the students wear costumes and have props to boot! Our 4 year old students wear traditional graduation regalia. It is an awesome culmination to a fabulous year!
