Tomorrow is May the fourth! Star Wars nerds have our own unofficial holiday! One day, somehow, I want to teach a course called Star Wars and the Biblical Worldview. But that is neither here, nor there..... If you'd like to wear a Star Wars shirt (or other clothing) to class on Monday, do it!

Looks like we will be ending this school year in our virtual realm.It's ok, though, because we've got this! Look at all you've conquered: email, Google Classroom, Zoom, Actively Learn, and Khan Academy. You've kept up the learning and the creativity. I am so proud of my students (and their parents, too!)

Today's schedule:
9:00 Homeroom: New vocab, and we will begin a unit on Greek mythology to end the year.
9:30 LA 7-1 : Hatchet, and new vocabulary
10:00 LA 7-2
10:30 LA8-2
12:00 6th LA - Jabberwocky, and a war is brewing in The Hobbit. here we thought a dragon was all we had to worry about....

I'm working diligently to grade all of our assignments. Please take a look at Renweb on Wednesday. If your child has a Missing or a zero, make sure he or she has submitted the work. If it's an Actively Learn grade, it will be on Actively Learn. I do appreciate your patience at this time.

May God bless you richly. You're in my prayers!

Psalm 135

Praise the Lord.[a]
Praise the name of the Lord;
    praise him, you servants of the Lord,
you who minister in the house of the Lord,
    in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the Lord, for the Lord is good;
    sing praise to his name, for that is pleasant.
For the Lord has chosen Jacob to be his own,
    Israel to be his treasured possession.
I know that the Lord is great,
    that our Lord is greater than all gods.
The Lord does whatever pleases him,
    in the heavens and on the earth,
    in the seas and all their depths.

Happy Tuesday, Grammarland!

On today's agenda...

Bible Class, 11am. Zoom info and PW in Google Classroom. See you there! Be sure you have your Bible!

I'm so proud of  my students. They've accepted this new challenge of virtual school, and they're doing great!

I've posted a two-part  Easter break extra credit assignment for my Bible class: an outdoor video interview with an older (as in, older than my students) Christian, and a prayer map to keep handy in these strange times. My friend Heather Webb is a missionary and teacher, and she posted the prayer map idea. Here's her beautiful daughter Jyoti completing her map and sharing her finished work.

Please keep our students and our school in your prayers. Please keep our country in your prayers.
May God bless each of you.

It's Holy Week, Grammarland! Let's pray for each other in the face of this pandemic, and let's prepare our hearts for the celebration of Easter.

Here's Monday's schedule:

9am - Homeroom
9:30- 7-1
10am - 7-2
10:30 - 8-2
12:00- 6th grade

All Zoom codes and Zoom passwords are on Google Classroom.

NEW! NEW! Virtual Office Hours on Mondays from 1:30-2pm.  Meeting info in Google Classroom.

My students are doing great! Please be sure that your student is coming to class and turning in work.

Dress code: Guys, you must be wearing a shirt in virtual class!

If a student submits work to me, and I send it back for corrections, it must be corrected before the due date. Otherwise, I'll take a grade on the original submission.

We didn't choose virtual school, but here we are! Taking it one day at a time is the best plan. I'm so proud of my students, and I'm proud of you parents, too! We got this! (Oh, the grammar...).

Friday begins our Easter break!
All assignments this week are due by 11:59 Thursday night.

May God bless you and keep you safe and well.

Homeroom! Friday, 10am - meet me in Google Classroom for chapel!

Middle school, if you have YouVersion, I'd love for you to join me in reading the plan:

The Cross & Covid-19: Discover Hope This Easter

How can I pray for you? Prayer is the most powerful tool we have, and I'd be honored to pray for you.
 If I can help you pray about anything, I'm here for you.

 Please, please help me pray for my students who do not yet know Christ. My heart breaks for them.

Have a great weekend! Only one more week til Easter.

Hebrews 13
20 Now may the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, 21 equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

Tomorrow is May the fourth! Star Wars nerds have our own unofficial holiday! One day, somehow, I want to teach a course called Star Wars ...
