SISTERS LARA, LEFT, AND CASSIE SWARTZ WERE ALL SMILES ON MONDAY MORNING A sixth grader, Cassie started her last year at All Saints Day School. Lara is a second grader.
“Who is my teacher going to be? Who’s in my class? What are we going to do? When is recess?” These questions and more were buzzing around All Saints’ Day School Monday morning on the first day of the school year. Over 300 students and their families arrived to discover brightly decorated classrooms, enthusiastic teachers, familiar faces and new friends, and a nurturing, Christian environment throughout the campus. “This is my 19th year as Headmaster at All Saints’, and I cannot imagine a more wonderful place to be,” said Joan Pennstrom. “These children are bright and eager to learn everything!
Their parents and families make a specific decision and commitment to send them to All Saints’ for our challenging, academic program and our warm sense of family. We believe the Golden Rule works in the classroom, on the playground, and everywhere we go throughout life,” she continued. All Saints’ Day School was founded in 1960 as a kindergarten for 40 young children. Today, 3K through 6th graders have limitless opportunities. The 23 classrooms are filled with cutting edge technology, enhancing the school’s traditional goal of providing solid pre-college preparatory skills.
Spiritual development is emphasized through morning Chapel programs, weekly devotions, and assemblies. Even the youngest students begin classes in Spanish, music, art, physical education, library, and computer. An outdoor classroom and teaching garden are popular options for special classes, as well as the large, covered pavilion and the full-sized gym and performance stage.
