Second Grade

Experience Second Grade At Covenant

Building foundation of academic readiness, preparing for lifelong learning.

In second grade, we strive to provide young boys and girls with a foundation of academic readiness built on a combination of skills and concepts, preparing them for lifelong learning. Every child should leave second grade with a greater love for learning, a deeper understanding of who they are in Christ, and a better knowledge of how to love the world and people around them.

Meet Mr. Lendy

Mr. Lendy was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois and moved to St. Louis upon recruitment to play collegiate volleyball at Fontbonne University. At Fontbonne, he met his wife Bailey and went on to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education. Mr. Lendy has been a part of the Covenant Christian School family teaching second grade since the fall of 2019.

  • Mr. Lendy is big Chicago sports fan (Yes, he cheers for the Cubs!)
  • He loves being active in fitness training and playing competitive sand and indoor volleyball.
  • He enjoys spending his time reading the Bible and being involved in teaching Bible studies. Mr. Lendy’s favorite Bible verse is Isaiah 55:11 “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

Educating Covenant’s
Second Graders with Our Integral Curriculum

Covenant Christian School’s second grade class provides a well-rounded, engaging education that instills a love for learning. Students cover reading, writing, and math fundamentals while exploring science, social studies, and the world around them. As a faith-based institution, biblical teachings are integrated, nurturing spiritual growth.

Supporting Classroom Curriculars

Experiential Learning

Experiential education seeks to support curricular goals through meaningful student-to-teacher interactions beyond the classroom, typically in natural settings. These active and relational experiences enable students to connect to their learning more fully.

The Arts

Studying, recognizing, appreciating, and protecting beauty nurtures our spirits, because it explores one of the ways God has revealed Himself to His people. Covenant students explore the arts through visual arts, such as drawing, music and drama.

Academic Support

Our academic support program is a testament to our hope that each of our students would thrive academically after being given the tools that help them reach their fullest potential, and celebrate the unique gifts each of our students possess.


In today’s classrooms, technology plays a significant role in enhancing the learning experience. Teachers utilize interactive whiteboards, tablets, and educational software to engage students, support collaboration, and facilitate a deeper understanding of complex concepts. Technology is used in grades 4–6.
