Dear Families,

I would like to welcome you to Calvary Chapel Christian School’s Elementary web page.

As a Principal and Educator, I truly want people to find the joy in learning and through that learning, be able to share the love of Jesus.  My passion is to concentrate on teaching and guiding teachers through encouragement, new methods, materials, and by letting them share the joy of teaching.  Through this joy, they will impact the lives of our students, parents, and community.

Sincerely,

Jonnie Miller

Elementary School Principal

As a teacher at Calvary Chapel Christian School, it is my passion to put God first in my life and in my classroom.   It is my goal to integrate Biblical principles across the curriculum and to teach in a way that is purposeful and meaningful.  As a Christian Educator, it is my desire to meet the needs of all my students. My calling as a teacher is to minister within my classroom to the students God has entrusted to me and also to partner with families in raising up a new generation after God’s own heart.

Elementary Teachers

In selecting classroom textbooks, both Christian and secular publishers are considered. It is recognized that Christian publishers provide a distinctive Christian perspective, especially needed in the social and physical science areas that have been so strongly influenced by humanistic philosophy.

Publishers currently being used include Abeka, Bob Jones, Positive Action, Saxon, McDougal Littell, and Write Source. The NIV Bible is used in the elementary grades and the New King James Bible is use in grades 6-12. Trade books used in the reading and literature programs may not necessarily be written by Christian authors, but are taught from a Christian perspective.
