School, which consists of children in grades fifth and sixth, allows us to
guide the children through the transition from elementary school to middle
It is age in which students begin to experience change in social structures and in their minds and bodies. Students begin seeking more autonomy in their decisions. They tend to thrive on attention from others, need acceptance from peers and desire to know more about the world around them. They are developmentally at the season of their lives when habits, character and values become solidified. Through providing an array of rigorous curricular and co-curricular opportunities, RCS staff comes alongside our students to encourage them as they grow and seek independence.
Our goal is to provide a structured, nurturing, developmentally appropriate environment, as we assist them with becoming a mature young person. During these years, we walk alongside the students, and help them become more independent (e.g. use of lockers, dressing out for Athletics, walking to/from classes on their own). Our desire is to teach them to do all for the glory of God.
Our focus is on problem solving and the teaching and learning of Mathematical Concepts. This is the time where teachers begin to transition their teaching from the concrete to the abstract. They begin to think and to learn to solve problems in their heads.
Novels begin playing a greater role as students begin to learn about plot, characters, authors, settings and other literary concepts. Literature begins to open the world to thinking about man, about God, about the world and the relationship between each of these.
Students begin to test out electives in the areas of art, music, band and ag concepts. This is the beginning of a focus for their time in the rest of middle school and high school.
PE / Athletics
Students in 5th grade are placed in a daily PE class. However, they may participate in track and cross-country. 6th graders are able to participate on other athletic teams as designated.
