The Classical School Blog, Week of August 31


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



A Message from Joe Fana, Principal of The Classical School

Our final post in the series of examining our School’s Mission Statement will be to look at “Participation as a way of life.”  At TCS, it is our desire for our students to be active participants in all that they do.  We do not want them to be complacent – “just going through the motions”.  In all that they do, whether it is our Kindergarten students supporting our football players from the stands or a Senior welcoming students on the first day of school, our students do not sit idly by, but are led to give all they can for the betterment of the institution.  Participation allows us to learn how to encourage others and expose ourselves to new things.  However, not all participation comes without a price.  The scriptures explain in Philippians that we may participate in Christ’s sufferings.  Participation is not always glamorous; however, it will continue to refine us in the people that God intended us to be.
