Program Details

Elmwood 1st and 2nd grade students will meet in our Shawnee Alliance classroom. Our LifeWise teacher and classroom assistant will either walk students or drive them in our LifeWise vehicle. Kindergarten students may enroll beginning at the end of the 23-24 school year for the following school year when they are in first grade.

Maplewood students will attend their LifeWise class inside Gardendale Church of God. Our LifeWise 18 passenger buses will transport your 3rd and 4th graders to class accompanied by a teacher or classroom assistant. Students will attend once a week on the same day. The time slots are approved by the schools to take place during a special.

5th and 6th grade Shawnee Middle School classes for boys are held at Shawnee Alliance Church. 5th and 6th grade girls’ classes are held at One Church. 5th and 6 grade students are in combined classes: 5th grade attending once a week during the study hall period and 6th grade attending once a week during their lunch/recess period. 6th grade students may bring their lunches with them to have during class. Our teachers and classroom assistants will accompany your child on the bus ride and provide bottled water and snacks during class time.
