Calvary Baptist Academy is proud to offer enrichment classes for our elementary students. These are year-long classes that meet once a week for one hour. Enrichment classes offered in 2019 include the following:
This is an introduction to art class where students will learn the basic elements of art - line, shape, color, value, texture, form, and space, as well as some art history. Their art projects will reinforce the art element being taught and will result in a portfolio at the end of the school year. The objective is to foster a love for the arts and provide a foundation on which the students can build each year.
In Elementary Spanish, students will learn introductory Spanish vocabulary, such as numbers, colors, the Spanish alphabet, greetings, and other every-day words and phrases. They will also memorize Bible verses in Spanish. The objective is to provide the students with a solid foundation in every-day Spanish vocabulary.
Fine Arts provides an opportunity for the students to gain experience and confidence singing in a group setting, as well as performing in front of an audience. For the 2019 fall semester, the students will be working on a simple Thanksgiving program that they will perform in front of an audience in November. The program includes several songs as well as lines that will be memorized for the performance. The objective is to provide students with opportunities to sing and gain confidence in singing and speaking in public.
In PE, students will learn basic skills and rules of team sports such as volleyball, soccer, and basketball. Stretching and calisthenics will also be emphasized, and students will be encouraged to choose a healthy lifestyle by staying active and making healthy decisions daily. The objective is to provide an opportunity for students to learn various team sports in a fun environment, as well as foster a desire for a healthy, active lifestyle.
