IMPORTANT DATES

Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:

A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs

What is Biblical Worldview Integration (BWI)? By definition Biblical Worldview Integration is the act of weaving Biblical Principles into the curriculum and classroom teachings. So what does it look like in action? When visiting our TCS Spanish classroom, I experienced a strong example of BWI. Mrs. Roxanna Dickerson had an extra question added to the Spanish III exam. It asked students to defend in the Spanish language why spiritual exercise is more important than physical exercise. Below is student Sam’s response in both Spanish and the English translation:

Muchas personas crean que el ejercicio físico es más importante que el ejercicio espiritual. La verdad es que el ejercicio físico solo te ayude aquí en este mundo, pero el ejercicio espiritual te guía a una relación firme con Dios y a una vida eterna en el cielo.

A lot of people think that physical exercise is more important that spiritual exercise. The truth is that physical exercise only benefits you here on earth, but spiritual exercise leads you to a deeper relationship with God and to an eternal life with Him in heaven.

God is truly all around us- we are so grateful to be able to integrate him in every possible way in our classrooms. Blessings for a wonderful week!

 

A Message from Joe Fana,  Principal of The Classical School

As we enter in to the Christmas season, I wanted to share with you about the meaning of Advent.  Advent is defined as the arrival of something.  As believers, we recognize Advent as the coming of Christ.  In many churches around the world, a candle is lit each week leading up to Christmas to symbolize his arrival.

The first candle symbolizes the prophesy of Christ’s coming in the Old Testament.  As early as Genesis 3:15 we see the foretelling of Christ as the One who would conquer sin and death.  We also see Isaiah 7:14 where “the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virginwill conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.”  Let us find hope this Christmas that God our Father keeps His promises – as He did for the coming of our Savior.
