Welcome Back after the Hurricane


Dear Parents and Students,

First and foremost, we hope that this letter finds you safe and sound. The past two weeks have been difficult for all of us and our thoughts go out to those of you who have suffered any losses from the hurricane.

Let us give you an update on how things stand as far as the school is concerned. School is up and running. Power has been restored for quite a while. This afternoon the internet was restored; however Ignitia (our on-line program) will not be reinstated until Monday at the earliest. There are still families and some staff without power and those that do have power don't necessarily have internet access.  We are working towards adjusting dates and reassigning units: lessons, quizzes, projects and tests. Students need not worry about any on-line past due assignments.

ON CAMPUS: we are working on grade level projects and assignments - which will be graded and entered as grades for progress reports/report cards.

Part of our program is on-line (for grades 3-12) but that is only a part of our program.

A major portion of grades come from: workshops, hands-on work stations, journals and projects which are not on-line. Students are expected to participate and turn their work in when projects are assigned.

Today, the junior high and high school students had fun playing a challenging game that used student interaction and taught: physical, topographical, environmental, and geographical regions of the world. Included were cultural diversity, regional facts and note taking skills.

The elementary students jumped right back into their cursive writing, math and other subjects but also worked on their geography skills. They were learning to locate and identify the continents and state capitals. They also learned about compassion and community service as Mrs. Fojt was able to talk to them about volunteering with Convoy of Hope last week.

At the end of the units they are all going to have fun making 3D maps of the word!

Check out the photos on our Facebook page to see how much fun they were having!

As this week continues to bring each student back to some normalcy, I would like to remind everyone that some of our staff, families, and neighbors are still facing challenges. Those that have been affected by the hurricanes' devastation face obstacles and hardships that might make life difficult in the next few days/months/years. I truly believe that God uses people to help others through these difficulties.  I've never seen more compassion and stewardship than I have in the last few weeks. The love shown in our community and the State of Texas is beyond measure.

Let us all continue to work together to ensure that hope continues.

Thank you for your understanding as we work through car-line, on-line curriculum modifications, internet issues and other annoyances that continue to challenge us in our daily walk.  

We thank you parents for your support.
