The Lower Elementary years see the development of social awareness, language transition, and collaborative learning. Each day is a new adventure!
Every year at this time, our third-year Primary students have the opportunity to discover their next educational chapter by visiting Lower Elementary (LE). This unique initiative fosters personal connections as each student is paired with a 2nd-grader, offering a glimpse into their future environment.
This “moving up” program is a cherished tradition for our Primary students, who relish the chance to bond with a 2nd-grade buddy. The Lower Elementary teachers have designed a creative way to introduce the third-year students to LE. During the visit, the students take a tour of Lower Elementary while completing a scavenger hunt, they play a math game and hear a story read by an LE student.
To further strengthen these connections, the 2nd graders write thoughtful notes that introduce themselves and share one thing they love about Lower Elementary. This wonderful experience creates the opportunity to bring the two programs together and the children have so much fun!
