FRCS NEWS

Week of February 18-22, 2019

FRCS will be CLOSED Wednesday, February 20th due to the forecast of snow and ice. Stay safe and enjoy the snow.

It's Re-Enrollment time at FRCS!

Front Royal Christian School recognizes that each child is created in the image of God, and we have a responsibility to understand the needs of all learners to prepare them for their future endeavors. Did you know that the 21 st century learner has never known a world without Google? Our response to this – Chromebooks in the classrooms have been a great success to engage the student with technology. And that’s just the beginning.

Students today are part consumer and creator. They may download and absorb information but then they take that information, create from it, and upload it to share with others. Creativity and collaboration are a natural part of their daily interaction with their world. FRCS recognizes that their education experience must build on their God-given innate creativity and support their need for expressing their questions and ideas. FRCS faculty are trained as facilitators who allow questioning, reflective dialogue, and collaboration in their classrooms, prompting students to draw out their own conclusions rather than be told the answers.

Curriculum and instruction must address student diversity. When it comes to content, curriculum must connect to the students’ interests, experiences, talents, and the real world. FRCS believes that pedagogy plays a crucial role in facing the 21 st century learner, teaching them how to think and not what to think.

FRCS agrees with the research supporting an active, student-centered environment that evaluates items like, but not limited to, homework, recess, and dress code policies, as well as continuing to offer more opportunities through our course offerings. All of this is done to ensure that FRCS is meeting the needs of its most valued treasure – your 21 st century child.

Blessings,
