Elementary (K-6th grade) Activities and Clubs
Students in Kindergarten through 6th grade have many opportunities to participate in outside activities and clubs. Some of these are in the form of class field trips, other programs meet before school, while some take place after school or on a seasonal basis.
Garden club meets every Wednesday through the academic year from 3:00-4:00pm. Students from all grades are invited to join. The 1st-6th grades are club members, and the 7th-12th graders act as student advisers. We work in the garden as well as spend time planning and learning about horticulture. For more information contact Kami McNeill.
Speech Meet (3rd – 8th grade)
The Veritas Speech Meet takes place every year during February. This fun event provides an opportunity for students to practice their public-speaking skills. Each participant is being “graded” against set criteria, such as appropriate volume, eye contact, etc. and not competing against fellow classmates. Afterwards, all will be given helpful, written feedback from three judges.
To learn more or volunteer as a judge for this great event, please contact our Speech Meet Coordinator.
Sixth grade students at Veritas have the opportunity to experience Outdoor School. This consists of four days and three nights learning in a rustic, natural setting while growing together as a class. Students spend time worshiping God, exploring the outdoors, learning about various topics, enjoying nature-related activities, and playing games.
