It's September and We Are Seeing Apples!
During the month of September, the third grade classes completed a cross curricular unit on Apples. Students learned about Johnny Chapman and the origin of apples in America while completing fiction and nonfiction writing lessons. The classes enjoyed a tasting party with apple treats such as apple fritters and apple sauce and had an opportunity to sample several varieties of apples and compare them. They created beautiful apple yarn art and themed crafts.
Our senior high students enjoyed an All-American themed homecoming banquet. The students played cornhole, posed for a photo-booth, enjoyed line-dancing, and tried their hand at mechanical bull-riding. For dinner, they dined on a typical American fare of BBQ chicken and pulled pork with mac and cheese, baked beans, as well as ice cream floats.
Spirit Week and Homecoming allow our students to build unity, to remember the joys of Grace Brethren, and to look forward to the rest of the year.
Students from K1 - 6th grade are recognized monthly for achievement in academics and exceptional behavior at chapel.
Our junior high students descended on the Simi Iceoplex for an evening of ice skating and fun. With around 50 students in attendance, there was an abundance of smiles, a few spins, and a handful of spills on the ice.
