Elementary Program

The elementary program at PCS includes grades TK through 5th.  Grades 6th through 8th comprise the middle school program.

Through a carefully planned instructional program, elementary age children at PCS are 
taught essential learning skills in reading, math, language arts, science, and social science. Science, social studies and math skills are reinforced through hands-on activities, including a week-long outdoor science camp for sixth grade, fifth grade trips on an 1800s sailing ship, as well as hands-on participation of a civil war re-enactment and a fourth grade overnight trip to Sacramento as part of the study of California.  1st through 8th grade students participate in organized physical education classes, meeting the state requirements for PE instruction.

The Bible is taught as a subject in the classroom and Biblical truth as well as the Christian morals and ethics of honesty and integrity are an integral part of the entire curriculum. The basic skills of reading, writing, grammar, spelling and vocabulary are emphasized in the English and language arts
curriculum. Instruction in the visual and performing arts completes the student-centered approach to PCS's educational program.  Speech meets and the annual classroom Poem Parties help teach students skills of public speaking and an appreciation of literature and creative expression.
