Little Arrows

  • Little Arrows Kinder/1st

    GO GLOBAL was designed to lay down the essential foundations of learning about where we are in time and space. This program invites parents and kids to explore where they are on the map and to branch out from there to explore this big, beautiful world in which we live. A foundation of geographical awareness and an understanding of where we fit in time-wise with history makes future learning more meaningful because there is immediate context. Children thrive when learning in a small, interactive environment which is what makes our homes such powerful places. They are mesmerized by the power of narrative and learn so much through engaging books. They want to talk to you about everything they are learning and noticing. Adding a playful component seals the deal by cementing into long-term memory these new discoveries they’re making about the world around them and how they fit into it. A day at Little Arrows will involve a morning of GO GLOBAL and an afternoon of Bowmen Sports P.E., Art, and centers/stations.  This day is designed for 5-6 year olds.

  • Little Arrows Preschool

    Friday School is designed for 3-4 year olds.  During the day your child will experience creative learning through centers, group time, hands-on activities, music & outdoor play.  It is our goal to provide developmentally appropriate activities to enhance your child’s physical, mental, social, emotional and spiritual growth. Due to limited space, these classes are offered for the children of our teachers/staff and the younger siblings of Arrow students.

Grade 1st

  • Science (1st-3rd) (4th period)
  • Science (1st-3rd) (6th period)
  • Science (1st-3rd) (5th period)
  • Art (1st-4th) (3rd period)

    Art has been a medium through which people have not only documented, but also shaped history, science and society—both past and future. A culture’s art gives us a peek into civilizations through the ages: Insights into their world, clothing, food, what they love and most valued, their education, homes and habits. Through art based on history, cultures and geography, students gain an easily graspable reference, while at the same time giving fuel for the imagination and creativity. During this year we will be exploring various works of art based on the timeline of history from explored in our Arrow History classes: Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of the Nations.  Our week to week focus will correspond with the countries being studied and with history as we classically walk through the timeline of 1450-1700.  Each week will be exciting and unique, as we travel the world together appreciating the elements and fundamentals of art, while working on art projects that bring each child into various cultures around God’s amazing world & growing in their artistic skills.

We will then spend the rest of class rehearsing our repertoire for our Fall and Spring concerts.

  • Art (1st-4th) (3rd period)

    Art has been a medium through which people have not only documented, but also shaped history, science and society—both past and future. A culture’s art gives us a peek into civilizations through the ages: Insights into their world, clothing, food, what they love and most valued, their education, homes and habits. Through art based on history, cultures and geography, students gain an easily graspable reference, while at the same time giving fuel for the imagination and creativity. During this year we will be exploring various works of art based on the timeline of history from explored in our Arrow History classes: Renaissance, Reformation & Growth of the Nations.  Our week to week focus will correspond with the countries being studied and with history as we classically walk through the timeline of 1450-1700.  Each week will be exciting and unique, as we travel the world together appreciating the elements and fundamentals of art, while working on art projects that bring each child into various cultures around God’s amazing world & growing in their artistic skills.

  • Choir (3rd+) (6th period)

    It is said that when people sing together, their heart rates become synchronized. Singing in a choir is incomparable to any other group experience due to the emotional connection each singer will bring to the table and to each other. By the end of the fall, our choral community will be extremely close-knit and will truly fall in love with the art form of choral singing. The classes each week will begin with our beloved “Psalm of the Day”, where we will discuss key attributes of God, then we will move to variations of ear training, rhythmic training, melodic training, and sight singing exercises. We will then spend the rest of class rehearsing our repertoire for our Fall and Spring concerts. Students will gain a plethora of music reading skills and be able to hold their own in a choir of mixed voices. Each of the concerts are sure to be an exciting time for both the singers and families!
