Making the School a Beautiful Place

Two weeks ago, three boys came to me with a concern that was burning on their hearts.  They stated with great solemnity that I needed to come and see something.  These boys lead me to their classroom and asked me to look underneath a couple of tables.  Under these tables was the ugliness of graffiti.  It filled my heart with joy that these young students were deeply bothered by this blight.  They had no part in creating the graffiti, but they knew that they did not want it to be a part of their classroom and their school.  I challenged these boys further by giving them the responsibility to clean it up.  They took up this task with great eagerness.  They gave up recess time to sand off and paint over the graffiti, which creates a clean slate.  They were actively involved in restoring their classroom and their school to a place of beauty.  Restoring things to the way they should be.  They lived out the restorative work of the kingdom of God.  They demonstrated what it means to be a follower and disciple of Christ.  Thanks boys.

Beautiful Work: Part 3

Two weeks ago, I posted some pictures of the beautiful work that the Grade 4 class accomplished through their pizza box biographies.  Today, on video, two students from that class talk about their learning experience.  Enjoy

JK/SK Fifties Day

Last week, our JK/SK class celebrated their fiftieth day of school with a Fifties Day.  They danced to fifties music, drank ice cream floats, dressed in the fashion of the fifties or what they wanted to be at age 50 and other activities related to the number 50.  Here are some photos documenting their day.
