The Arts program at First Lutheran School is based on the Tennessee Curriculum Standards and is taught in conjunction with Core Knowledge principles. Each grade level works on a different curriculum that helps enhance what they are learning in the classroom.
First Lutheran School is very proud of our Athletic Department. Headed by First Lutheran School Alumni, Kari Williamson, we offer a variety of different athletic programs for our students to participate in.
We want students at First Lutheran to be excited about reading. The FLS library has more than 10,000 books. Students attend a library day each week, when the librarian reads a story (usually pertaining to something they’re studying in class) and they are given time to check out books. Students are always allowed to come into the library during open periods to return and check out new books.
The dress code at First Lutheran School is intended to create a school environment where students from Kindergarten to 8th grade are neatly and uniformly dressed (dress code does not apply to ECE students).
- Simplify dressing and the dress code
- Reduce peer pressure and social stigmas
- Encourage distinctions of character and personality instead of appearance
- Place emphasis on learning, not clothing
- Equalize economic diversity
- Lower long-term clothing costs
- Allow for cohesive presentation as a group
