Classroom Highlights

Our recent class meetings have centered on developing a culture of kindness.  As we continually seek to be more like Christ, we pray for the Holy Spirit's influence in both our words and actions.  

During 3rd quarter, our science focus has been on geology.  Thanks to the support of Kendall-Hunt Publishing and the Mid-America Union Conference, our class has been able to enjoy virtual reality field trips to learn more about plate tectonics and the effect they have on the physical features of our Earth's surface.

In February, our class read the book Heartbeat, a novel written in the form of poetry.  While studying various forms of poems, the students also wrote their own collection of poetry to be published.
