A Message from Joe Fana, Principal of The Classical School

It has been a hard couple of weeks for many in the state of Florida.  Many have been without power, water, and food.  Many have struggled with the devastation of loss both physically and emotionally.  During these times, I find myself becoming more dependent on fixing everything myself instead of taking my struggles and stress before God.  As I read in Jesus Calling just this week, “when you see armies of problems marching toward you, cry out to Me!  Allow me to fight for you.  Watch Me working on your behalf, as you rest in the shadow of the Almighty Presence.”  Let us draw near to Him during these difficult times, letting our great God carry our burden.

Mrs. Stephens’ students made “short i”, “long i”, and “short e” pizzas, and while it was very fun, they said it made them very hungry!! They also took a break from the pencil and paper in math and instead used beads for a fun subtraction activity!
