The Good News

While most of what we discussed here may seem to be the “negative” aspects of the school environment, there are far more positives. First and foremost, how glorious it is that you as a parent are taking steps to ensure your child knows Jesus, talks to Jesus, walks with Jesus, and accepts Jesus as their Lord and Savior! With a world geared toward entitlement, selfish attitudes, and a general belief of “what’s in it for me?’ thank the Lord we have a chance to help raise your children to understand that they are “Chosen” by God who loves them as they are. May we help them see that God gave us this life to bring glory to Him. May the children see that only they can accomplish being good, just, and holy with God’s mercy… and the reward is eternal.

While a job well done should be its own reward, students who have good attendance, do a good job scoring, achieve daily goals, and complete chores will be eligible for the reward system at the end of each quarter.
