Calvary Day School Adds Transitional Kindergarten Program

Calvary Day School in Winston-Salem is committed to meeting the needs of all of today’s students. In an effort to reach students where they are in their development journey, Calvary identified the need for the addition of a full-day Transitional Kindergarten (TK) program. This program is specifically tailored to provide students with the “gift of time” before entering a formal Kindergarten program.

TK is an all-day program that provides an opportunity to ease the transition from Preschool to Kindergarten while experiencing a longer day, lunch at school, and designated rest time. While academic objectives are similar in nature to traditional Kindergarten, with small class size and more individualized instruction, TK provides an environment conducive to social and emotional growth and maturity. There are many benefits to giving children another year to develop academically, socially, emotionally, and physically as well as increasing their executive functioning skills without repeating a grade and/or curriculum. To be eligible for this class, the student must turn 5 years old by August 1, 2020 or must have completed a four-year-old program.

For more information, please visit, e-mail or call 336-765-5546.

Embarrassing Questions Survey

How many times have you wondered whether your secret thoughts are shared by others? Or if you were crazy to make the decision that you did? Or if you are the only one who does some of the things you do?

We’ll, we’re here today to find out thanks to a fun little survey designed to measure our scruples – as moms, as wives, as friends, and as the good citizens we all know we are. Of course this is not a scientifically designed survey – it’s just a simple list of questions and scenarios – some of which may have come up in conversations you’ve had, but when answering these questions, you can remain anonymous!

Take our survey here. We will be sharing our anonymous answers in our blog roll on May 22nd, so stay tuned!
