Lower School

Uniquely Whitefield

The Whitefield Lower School hosts special events which provide an opportunity for Whitefield families to celebrate the fun moments and milestones that come with being a Lower School student. Faculty and staff members, along with the Whitefield Parent Association, work to create environments and opportunities in which students are able to build memories and share their God-given talents with classmates and family members.

Academics

I Love to Read Week: Each day of I Love to Read week includes exciting activities, as authors and writers visit to inspire students in their love of reading. At the end of the week, each Lower School class dresses up and decorates a wagon to depict a favorite book; they take their wagon on a parade through the Middle School and Upper School quadrangle.

 

Athletics

Field Day: This day is athletic and fun! Good food, good friends, and good competition round out the next-to-the-last day of school!

 

Arts

Christmas Program: Each Lower School class participates in Whitefield’s annual Christmas program, learning songs and passages of Scripture that focus on the birth of Jesus Christ.

Arts and Science Day: From engaging performances to hands-on art activities, this day brings out the creative side of every student.

Big Broadcast: Selected students in second- through fourth-grades sing and perform in this annual musical or drama review.

Fall and Spring recitals: Our after-school ballet group, violin group, and Lower School chorale perform at this event each semester.

 

Fall and Spring piano recitals: Students in our after-school piano program perform at this event each semester. 

 

Events with Parent and Grandparents

Campout with Dad: This annual fall event at Camp Highlands is a favorite of our dads and students.

Sweetheart Ball: Dads escort their daughters to this “red carpet” Valentine’s occasion and enjoy sweet treats and dancing.

Donuts with Dad: Dads and their children enjoy one another at an on-campus breakfast of donuts and other treats. Walking the track together or mingling with friends makes this a special time for kids to spend with their dads.

Mother-Son Event: Boys enjoy an evening with their mom based on the annual theme.

Mornings with Mom: Moms and their children enjoy one another at an on-campus breakfast of donuts and other treats. Walking the track together or mingling with friends makes this a special time for kids to spend with their moms.
