School Starts at Our Redeemer's

Posted: Updated:

Students returned to Our Redeemer's Christian School today after a mostly sunny summer break.

The day's activities ranged from upper classmen electing club presidents and first graders naming objects they spied in their classrooms.

Their teachers spent their summer break working on adapting to the new common core standards their students will be held to.

Even though the way Our Redeemer's is funded means they have more flexibility with their implementation of teaching methods, Principal Charles Strand says that common core will be cause for their biggest change this year.

(Our Redeemer's Principal, Charles Strand) "We're looking at them each and we're saying, 'This is good, this benefits us, and this doesn't' and so we're ignoring those that don't benefit us and we're implementing those that are an improvement from what we were doing before."

Strand also says that though they want the students to be able to meet standards like doing research from multiple sources simultaneously, they're not going to teach to standardized tests.
