This year has been one filled with adjustments and adaptations, but we are functioning well with God's help and blessing.  Students completed a social studies unit in which they learned about U.S. government, comparing and contrasting it to God's government.  As a culminating project they were divided into teams to simulate legislative committees.  Their task was to propose something that would make our school better.  Their ideas were sent to the fifth and sixth graders who acted as the Senate to approve the ideas or send them back to committee.  Eventually teachers acted as the president who signed (or potentially vetoed) the proposals. The projects students came up with were to help homeless people, add a snack at the end of the day one day a week, hold a "spirit" day once a month, and have a snow party.  We raised over $600 for Booth House, a homeless shelter for teens, had fun playing in the snow and, so far, have had a pajama day.   Snacks are on the way.

Our class is incredibly caring, and as our class mission statement says, is building stamina for quality work. It's a joy to be with these fabulous young people day in and day out.
