Sixth Grade Overview
“It is fun to learn new songs and to learn how to play the recorder.” Sam Hanson
At Northshore Christian Academy, we recognize the transition that students experience during the middle school years, and that sixth grade is a pivotal time in the lives of our students. Students are exploring, making sense of their world, and asking questions that they have never considered before.
It is our mission to teach the whole child spiritually, physically, academically, socially, and intellectually. To do this, sixth grade is part of the middle school model at NCA. Students begin their day in homeroom with the Bible.
Sixth Grade Teachers
Amanda Torman, Annarose Nestor & Karen Jones
At Northshore Christian Academy in the 6th Grade Department, our students are blessed with incredible educators who have the high distinction of over 37 years of experience teaching, 2 Masters Degrees, and are ACSI accredited and have Washington State Teaching Certificates. Our teachers feel called to be exemplary educators and come from diverse and prominent teaching backgrounds that equip them with the tools necessary to meet the needs of each of our students.
As a Christian school, located in Everett, WA, we have the pleasure of partnering with families, local schools and businesses to give our students a well-rounded education. Our program focuses not only on the exemplary academics and their spiritual development of each student, but also their social and emotional development. Our program diligently works to support each of our students in their scholarly and personally endeavors as it helps shape and mold them into thriving members of our community.
Through collaborative team work, facilitated by our Learner Centered Collaboration (LCC), our teachers are able to create an environment of dynamically different teaching styles and strategically consistent curriculum. This allows our teachers to successfully impact our students by supporting all different learning styles. Northshore’s teamwork approach in evaluating data, such as our standardized testing, helps our program continue to be at the forefront of producing students ready to lead the world.
At NCA we desire for young people to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. We endeavor to develop that relationship by equipping students with knowledge and application of the Word of God. Going beyond factual knowledge of the Scriptures, we hope to see wisdom and understanding imparted into every student’s life with the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Character development, prayer, Bible memory work, and practical lessons, enable students to grow in faith and equip them to make good decisions.
During the course of a year, students will tour the lands, peoples, and cultures of ancient civilizations in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas. Students will participate in simulations in the classroom demonstrating some of the early technologies that have led to today’s inventions. They will expand their Christian worldview as they compare ancient beliefs and religions with Christianity.
The middle school language arts program is designed to inspire life-long readers and for students to become confident communicators. Students work with a variety of written forms, developing their own voice and style. We endeavor to equip students with clear writing skills and the ability to express themselves in an articulate manner.
