Summer Reading

Dade Christian School considers summer reading an important extension of the curriculum. The purpose of the summer reading program at DCS is three-fold:

… To develop life-long reading habits

… Maintain reading proficiency

… To encourage critical thinking

All students in grades 1-8 at DCS are required to complete the summer reading. The summer reading list has been selected to address the range of interest and specifics of grade level curriculum. Though not required, all students are strongly encouraged to keep a journal for each reading.

Elementary Enrichment Curriculum Overview

3K – 5K Spanish & Music

The Elementary Spanish and Music Department is a class designed to teach the students a new language in a fun and entertaining environment. The playgroups are structured to encourage children to play games and sing songs familiar to them, thereby enjoying the learning process. When learning is combined with social stimulation, it is challenging and fun.


Art assists in the development of a child’s emotional and intellectual growth through sensory experiences that promote creativity, imagination, and artistic expression. Each learning experience includes both a process and a product. The elementary art curriculum includes a sequential learning process exposing children to a variety of techniques, skills, and concepts. The visual art curriculum allows the teacher to guide children through hands-on activities that integrate art history in both past and present cultures.


The elementary computer program serves as a tool to teach students in the fundamentals of computer technology, ensuring a proficiency in the computer skills necessary to excel in our technology-based society. We use technology’s power to improve the learning process for students. We guide students in developing the ability to make use of the Internet and multimedia technology to increase critical literacy skills and essential knowledge.


God desires that people from all languages become a part of His Kingdom (Rev. 5:9). The elementary Spanish Department consists of a Native speakers class and a Non-Native speakers class. Both classes offer small class sizes which leads to more individualized instruction. We are excited to have a brand new Spanish Curriculum called “Muy Bien”. The teachers use puppets, dramatizations and song to encourage class participation and to enhance the curriculum. The Spanish teachers also use “Passaporte al Español”, which has a pervasively Christian content. This curriculum invites children to enjoy the rewards of learning a foreign language and fosters Christian growth.
