CR West News & Notes
To Know God and to Make Him Known
I am encouraging everyone to take time on Monday for our last community day of prayer and fasting. Seek the Lord, read His word, and rest in His presence.
Please reach out to your "rope holder" as well to see how you can pray for her.
We are a team, a community of women encouraging and supporting one another, so let's finish strong together!!
Here's a blog entry from Sarah Mackenzie to give you some inspiration....
Fine Arts, Science & Essentials
Our last quarter of Foundations focuses on science projects (versus science experiments). These projects are designed to complement the science grammar covered in Cycle 2. Students will design paper airplanes, build bridges and construct egg nests.
For Fine Arts we'll be studying the Orchestra and great composers. Students will listen to the work of master composers and learn new grammar to help them identify parts of the orchestra.
For Essentials the focus changes to our Faces of History presentation. Students will write a research paper and present the paper in the form of a speech. This event is slated for March 22nd.
Parker - Faith Baptist Church - June 28-30
Castle Rock - Ridgeline Church - July 26-28
My Challenge to You
--focus is on SKILL versus content
--focus is on building confidence
--focus is on improvement
--focus is on asking good questions (as an audience member)
Our end goal is to work toward a third year Essentials Faces of History presentation...to be able to present from memory or limited notes with poise and confidence given a specific time frame.
Think about how your child can improve and focus on presentations for the next six weeks--that is my challenge to you! :)
