National School Choice Week: You may have seen a few yellow fleece scarves and maybe a sign or two around campus this week as you drop students off or pick them up. This week is National School Choice Week. We have chosen to participate in the celebration this year as it gives us another opportunity to be thankful for the ability we have to choose a private school.
As a school we get to integrate faith and learning every day as we discover truth, and learn how our creator views truth in every subject.
We believe that a Christian worldview as presented in Scripture provides students with a valuable framework for understanding the world around them, and learning in this context will give them the foundation they will need to navigate a changing and sometimes confusing world. This week we are thankful for the opportunity to do just that at Island Christian Academy!
Spelling Bee: Just in case you are free this afternoon and would like to join us, the 3rd-8th grades will be competing in our Scripps Spelling Bee at 1:15 today. By the end of the day we'll know who will represent us at the Regional Spelling Bee in March!
Parenting Teens Summit: Those of you with teens or up-and-coming teens, may be interested in this free on-line summit!
Axis, the sponsoring organization, provides resources to parents and leaders to help them "empower the next generation to think clearly and critically about what they believe and to take ownership of their faith." I utilize their services weekly through an email they send out called the Culture Translator.
In February they are sponsoring an on-line conference which will include some well known leaders who will provide practical talks to help you parent your teens.
Ravi Zacharias, Tim Keller, John Eldredge, Kathy Koch, John Stonestreet, Kara Powell and a host of other experts will equip you to start conversations with your teen about faith, body-image, failure, pornography, sex, social media, leadership, prayer, college prep and more. Get your free digital seat at the conference today!
You can tune in to a session at the scheduled time or watch over the following three days at your convenience.
Please mark your calendar with some of the dates on the attached MT document. Thanks for reading!
