Updates from the Classes 

Christian Character Formation Project:  The Bible study and lessons throughout the week will cause us to think about this question: How does God's Spirit bless others through the responsibilities He has given you?

Virtue -- RESPONSIBILITY: God's power for you to be accountable to Him and others.

Family Verse: "But be sure to fear the Lord and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you." 1 Samuel 12:24


We're continuing reading The False Prince. We've learned that we need to adjust our thinking about characters the more we read, looking for text evidence to shift our first thoughts.  Expect reading work nearly every night.  Students should be continually updating their character charts (kept in the front cover of their books or in the zipper bag), and please do look at the thinking in their writing through their readers' responses as found on Google Classroom. 

After we finish The False Prince, the plan is to have students select their own novels within the same genre.  Titles (authors) and suggestions will be given to the students as the time nears.  Please know that I do not expect students to purchase books; the library is an amazing resource!!


No assessments in English this week!

We'll be defining six traits in our writing, providing us with a common language for effective development and revision for our pieces.


Unit 1 Set B is due September 20th.  Activities will take place throughout the week of September 20th.  The defintions test over Unit 1 will be on Thursday, September 23rd, and the spelling test over Unit 1 will be on Friday, September 24th. 


We'll begin rehearsing for our chapel service this week.   

We ended the day with a special prayer for those Christians around the world who are facing persecution.  We in this country have the freedom to worship without fear.  The most difficult thing for us is to decide to spend time in His word and in prayer, to teach it and live it, and to make worship a priority.  For many, their faith threatens their lives.  Yet at the same time, we also know that faith gives life.  May they who are persecuted -- and we who can show our faith -- allow the Holy Spirit to give us strength.  May we also be a source of encouragement for each other. 

Schedules, verses, and journals will be posted as Materials in Google Classroom so students will always have the ability to view them from there.  The memory schedule for September - October has been posted on Google Classroom.  It was also included via a link in the parent email.

Due dates for each  of the three sermon notes:  Monday, September 20th; Monday, October 18th; Monday, November 15th.  The form is also available as a Material on Google Classroom.  Students will have the ability to view and print the form from either the website here or Google Classroom.  If worshipping at St. Paul, the forms are also printed and available on the back wall in the Narthex, near the coat racks.


Updated Sermon Note form
