Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade 

Wasatch Christian School offers third, fourth, and fifth grade from 8:30-3:30 pm daily. In addition, child-care is available from 6am to 6pm. 

 

Our students receive extra one on one attention and are driven to excel in their studies.  Every student in our classroom is in a safe, caring, bully free environment. We also, not only teach our students from a curriculum that is beyond state core standards, but most importantly about the love of the Lord and the Bible. Our class also functions as a close knit family due to our small class size. Here the children feel confident and successful. We want each of our students to reach their fullest potential and we strive to make a difference in their lives.

In our classroom, we assess our students to determine their reading level and math comprehension. Individual, appropriate curriculum is tailored to fit the needs and goals of each student. Below is a list of subjects and information taught to the students as a group:

Meet the Teacher

Mrs. Amanda

I have been passionate about educating young children for the past 20 years. In 2002, I earned my Early Childhood degree from Weber State University and my Utah state education license.  I have taught every grade from preschool to 5th grade and have also direct Wasatch Christian School. I love seeing the light bulb turn on and that moment that a child grasps a new concept. My passions are teaching children to read, teaching mathematics, and most importantly about the Lord. I also enjoy planning and preparing hands on activities to keep my students learning and engaged. I consider it to be an honor and a blessing to be at WCS where I have the privilege to teach children about Jesus and His love for them.  I have five beautiful, fun children and a wonderful husband that I enjoy exploring God's beautiful creation with through a multitude of outdoor activities including traveling in the U.S and abroad.

Mrs. Kimberly

I started teaching as a substitute when my kids were in school - and loved doing that for 15 years. I went back to WSU, taught as an ESL aide, and got my Elementary Education degree at age 50. I have also worked as a special education preschool paraprofessional and teacher, and a K-1 Functional Skills teacher. I'm happily married and have two grown daughters, one of whom is expecting my first grandchild! I enjoy gardening, reading, and being in the outdoors. I thank God daily for the amazing world he created! I also play the flute and piccolo, my husband plays the saxophone, and together we play in the Ogden Concert Band and Riverdale City Band.
