HCS Elementary School Map

Academic Excellence
Our Elementary program is designed to challenge and nurture the individual, God-given talents of students in preschool through fifth grade. Our curriculum is aimed at developing the whole child as a social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual being, created in His image. We are committed to integrating faith into every aspect of learning including all our academic classes as well as our fine arts and athletic programs.

We understand that God’s children have unique strengths and weaknesses and offer differentiated instruction to meet their individual needs. Students can take advantage of a full range of learning opportunities, from academic support to options for accelerated learners.

In Partnership with Parents
Hudsonville Christian Elementary teachers recognize the importance of parental involvement and communication. They welcome email communication from parents and invite parents to volunteer to help with special events like field trips and parties.

We also communicate through a weekly home bulletin, called The Home Communicator, which includes school news, announcements, and upcoming events. It is sent home via email each Tuesday to each family.   If you would like to receive a paper copy or would like to be placed on the email list, please call the school office.

The Spotlight is issued several times each year to inform the broader HCS community of school news and events.

Parents also have convenient, web-based access to students’ academic information and records.  Through Sycamore, parents (and students) can securely access grades, report cards, class schedules, and attendance information.

HCS also offers parents a HCS classified ads area for posting items for sale, help wanted and other services through the Sycamore sign-in.

Gifted Teachers
Our elementary school teachers have been especially chosen on the basis of a personal commitment to Jesus Christ as well as their unique teaching skills and passion for Christian education. Each is certified by the state of Michigan and committed to our school mission of challenging minds and lives for Christ.

2017-2018 Theme 
Each year, Hudsonville Christian School picks a theme to guide students’ spiritual development. This year’s theme, “Telling the Story”, comes from Psalm 26:2b-3, “examine my heart and my mind; for I have always been mindful of your unfailing love and have lived in reliance on your faithfulness.”  This year’s theme was chosen as Hudsonville Christian School celebrates 100 years of Christian education (1917-2017).  During this year, it is our prayer that God’s faithfulness and unfailing love will be shown and shared as we Tell His Story with our students, staff and community.

Extracurricular Activities
HCS Elementary School offers students the opportunity to participate in several extracurricular activities, including STEM Activities (various grades), Math Pentathlon (grades 1-7), Basketball Clinics (grades 3-5), Game Time (grade 5) and Brain Busters game days (grades 5-8).

For more specific information on individual extracurricular activities, please refer to the Extracurricular tab.

Number Days
So that students get an even distribution of their “specials” classes (art, music, library, physical education, and technology), the HCS Elementary School schedule follows a pattern of “number days.” Our weekly schedule cycles through a rotation of four numbers: #1, #2, #3 and #4. Students quickly grow accustomed to the number days schedule and benefit from every-other-day instruction.

The schedule of Number Days is printed in the Home Communicator each week. If there is an unanticipated cancellation such as a snow day, the number schedule is adjusted to resume on the next day of school.
