History: In October 2004, we officially began a relationship with Cherrydale Elementary School that has blossomed into a warm friendship. With the permission of Scarlet Black, the school principal, and the blessing of many parents, we were afforded the opportunity to pick up students from school on Wednesday afternoons during the final half hour of the school day. After transporting the students to our church, we spend about one hour in Bible class activities, have a tasty snack, and then work away at homework until about 4:30.
We hold separate classes divided either according to academic grade or gender. The leadership team in each class consists of a teacher, an assistant teacher, and, if possible, other helpers. The teacher coordinates the involvement of the leadership team in the singing, lessons, activities, etc.
