Eagles' Landing

Fort Myers Christian school- November 3

Gentleness

Gentleness is the fruit of the spirit that we are focusing on this month. In the Bible, Jesus' nature is shown in the verse from Matthew 21:5:


“See, your king comes to you, gentle and riding on a donkey,”


Sometimes it is thought that gentleness is another word for weakness. But we know that Jesus was far from weak. He was powerful, strong and mighty. Jesus calls us all to be gentle in spirit but strong in the power of God. In these last few weeks we have seen evidence of God's people, showing His gentleness in how they treat others who are hurting. But at the same time they are strong which is evidenced by their ability to allow others to lean on them, giving them support in their time of need.


When difficulties come and they always will, God's people shine!

If it is turned in after the original due date, 30% will be taken off of the score earned. This means that if a students gets a 100% on their assignment, their final score would be 70%.


Anything that is assigned after November 18, will need to be turned in by the Friday before exam week, December 9. Same policy above will be applied.


We want to encourage our students to do the work in order to learn the material. If they receive no points for the work, there is not incentive to do the work.
