Now in its 40th year of shaping young minds, Mustard Seed Christian School is gearing up for another successful enrollment season. The school, which is affiliated with First Presbyterian Church, serves infants – kindergarten. Enrollment opens to the public on March 1. If you’d like to see the school, swing by any Monday in March at 9:30a for a group tour. Your guide will be happy to answer any questions! You can also pick up an enrollment form at the drop box by the front door of the school, which is located at 115 E. 5th St. Or you can always call 918-342-4585 to ask any questions. Facebook messaging is also an option!
The schedule during the school year is 8:30a – 2p for all ages except kindergarten, which stays in session until 3p. Two, three, and five-day options are available, depending on age.
This is the first school year that Mustard Seed has offered kindergarten. Over the past five years, the mission has evolved and educational standards are continually changing. When school director Tallery Briggs accepted her position five years ago, the enrollment stood at 37 with two teachers. Today, Mustard Seed has 100 students and 12 teachers, all of whom have strong passion for the kids they teach, which shines through each and every day.
Not only are academic standards high at Mustard Seed, teachers work on preparing children for a more mainstream educational setting. For example, they’re taught how to properly sit in the cafeteria, and other social aspects and manners that will be helpful when they enter first grade. Spiritual education is also important, and students regularly learn Bible verses, prayers, and creeds.
Mustard Seed also offers extracurricular activities (for an additional fee), including martial arts, ballet, and soccer.
