The Lower School comprises kindergarten through fifth grade. The development of essential skills for academic excellence lies at the foundation of the curriculum in the formative elementary grades. The core curriculum includes language arts, mathematics, science, reading, spelling, and social studies.
Teachers adapt instruction to the specific needs of each class and find many opportunities for interdisciplinary study. Superkids is a research-based comprehensive core reading program built on systematic phonics; the program balances essential elements of reading and integrates writing, spelling, and grammar. Field trips, guest speakers, and special programs are frequent additions to the Lower School program. Curriculum-related field trips utilize the academic, cultural, and natural resources available in our region.
Students broaden their academic experience through various scheduled resource classes. These include art, Spanish, music, technology, library, health, and physical education. Students in grades 4 and 5 broaden their technology skills and receive Chromebooks™ for class and homework.
Trinity Lutheran School is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that admits academically qualified students without regard to gender, race, color, religion, and national or ethnic origin.
