Middle School students attend classes each Monday through Wednesday. On Thursday and Friday they complete their schoolwork at home by following the lesson plans provided by each of their teachers.
The Student Experience
Middle School students attend school Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. While in school they enjoy all the benefits of a private Christian school such as:
- advanced academic curriculum
- classroom structure with hands-on learning
- positive social interaction
- fun elective options
Middle School students continue their schoolwork at home on Thursdays and Fridays, following the detailed lesson plans provided by each teacher. Home school work is due each Monday and must be turned in on time. The only homework given in middle schools for math. In middle school, parents check their student’s math work with a solution’s book, offering students one opportunity to correct any problems missed. This is only way in which parents partner with teachers in the education of their children. Parents are also responsible for assisting their children as needed in the completion of their work.
Middle School electives follow an A/B schedule based on in-class days.Since students are placed into electives for the year, the rotating A/B schedule allows each student to choose two electives. Elective options may change each year, but are generally emailed to the Middle School students August so that families can begin making their decisions. Elective options currently include: Chorus, PAX (drama), Art, Beginning Computers, and Life Skills..
PE and Dance:
Middle School girls will also be able to choose between PE or Dance during their last period of the day. Boys will all be placed in PE. Students in both classes dress out every day.
The Parent Experience
Parents remain involved in the education of their students throughout their time at Harvest. We believe that parents are ultimately responsible for training their children, and that our role as educators is to come alongside parents as they complete God’s instruction from Deuteronomy 6:
4 “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. 8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. 9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
At Harvest we expect parents to be involved! For instance, in Middle School parents are obligated to check and sign math homework weekly. They also must assist their children in the completion of their work on Thursdays and Fridays. In addition, parents are also responsible to volunteer as a “Parent Partner” to help out either at the school or with a special event. Since the Middle School years are filled with growth and changes in maturity, we want to partner with parents in order to successfully meet the academic, spiritual and social needs of every student. We encourage parents and teachers to remain in communication throughout each year to better achieve this goal.
