The Falcons Athletics program involves 5 core values:
Respect | Commitment | Gratitude | Encouragement | Growth
These core values allow staff and coaches to get at the important work of educating for wholeness, where ‘process’ is emphasized. The intermediate students at Fleetwood Campus will have opportunities to participate in several extra-curricular sports.
We also have opportunities for students in grade 4, 5, 6, 7 to be involved in development programs for soccer, volleyball and basketball. These programs are scheduled throughout the school year and run both inside and outside the regular weekly school schedule.
Our primary music program offers children the opportunity to explore and learn elements of music including melody, rhythm, tempo and dynamics through singing and playing a variety of pitched and unpitched rhythm instruments. Students create their own melodies and lyrics in community with each other and with guidance from their music teacher. Children are able to express themselves through song and dance both in the classroom and through public performance for family and friends.
Grade 3-7 musicians are invited on a rich, exciting and vibrant journey that seeks to nurture a life-long love and appreciation for music. While music education develops the whole child, it essentially connects us to each other and to the heart of God. It is our desire to help each student reach their full potential as musicians by learning musical skills and techniques.
Our grade 3-7 musicians participate in marimba, ukulele, bucket drumming, recorder, choir and band classes. Students have the option to participate in a variety of extra curricular activities including grade 4–7 Chapel Band, grade 4–7 Christmas Event Choir, grade 6 & 7 Jazz Band and grade 7 marimba ensemble. Every two years we present either Handel’s Easter Messiah or Handel’s Christmas Messiah with a variety of music presentations and musicals during the in-between years.
SCStrings is an exciting extracurricular program that helps students develop their musical understanding through stringed instruments. Under the direction of Mylana Goheen, SCStrings has seen over 15 years of growth; and in that time, many students have been provided with valuable experience and opportunities to grow and nurture their passion for music!

From an early age, children are curious about nature. Being outside in nature can stimulate a child’s sense of wonder and discovery. Our outdoor education supports inquiry and play based learning. Our kindergarten and grade 1 students go outside 1 morning per week to local parks like: Godwin Park, Derby Reach, Tynehead Regional and Green Timbers. Our deep hope is to invite students to ignite their excitement and curiosity for the natural world. We have a great opportunity to immerse our children in the awesome creation that God has given us to take care of.
