Learning, Exploring, Connecting
Each student’s intellectual, physical, creative, and spiritual growth is our top priority. As educators, it is our responsibility to guide each student toward fulfilling his or her potential. When it comes to work ethic, originality, and knowledge, we hold ourselves to the highest standards. The goal is to give students opportunities for growth and camaraderie outside of the classroom.
Ambassadors in Action
DSCA’s motto is “training ambassadors”. It is our goal to impress upon the students that we are to look beyond ourselves, love our neighbors, and be the hands and feet of Jesus. Each month we focus on a way to serve people within our community. The suggested topics should be communicated and encouraged by classroom teachers throughout the entire month.

Music & Drama
Studies have shown that music produces several positive effects on a human’s body and brain. Music activates both the left and right brain at the same time, and the activation of both hemispheres can maximize learning and improve memory. Children develop their language skills through singing songs, with attention to diction, meaning, rhythm and rhyme. Music is also used to stimulate discussion or creative writing. Through working with others in a musical and dramatic setting, children develop their ability to communicate ideas effectively, all of which are facets of expressing our God-given creativity. Plus, it’s fun!
1st and 2nd grades focus on singing, focusing on rhythm, tempo, and fun, as well as learning about instruments. Musical themed worksheets are introduced.
