Classical Conversations

For Week 7

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

I pray this over you this week. It is not easy to be thankful when you are going through difficult circumstances. I am learning that it makes all the difference in how you are going to get through the circumstance. The circumstance may not go away but your heart will change as you learn to thank God. You will grow closer to God as you learn to praise Him through your storm. He loves you and he is a good, good father.

Don't forget your Tin Whistles! We are starting our six weeks of Music Theory. It's going to be fun! We will also be exploring the external anatomy of crayfish this week. The kids are going to love it.

Ways to Serve:

We have a number of ways for you to serve in our community.

If we would like school pictures this year then we need a volunteer to take them or find someone outside of our community that would take them. There are also openings for the year book, Christmas Party Committee and Year End Party.

Here is the link to sign up.

How some content we learned this week will be further explored in Essentials and Challenge.

Week 6 Lessons Plans

Our tutors have uploaded their weekly lessons plans to a google doc to assist you at home. One or two things may be different but most of the information should be the same that was presented in class. I hope you find this helpful.
