This week, the children are learning about Jesus coming to Galilee and giving his disciples the Great Commission: to go and make disciples of all nations, teaching and baptizing in the name of God.
The children are preparing for the Hershey Track and Field Competition, scheduled for May 9 at Nikiski Middle-Senior High School. In addition to preparing for the track meet, the younger children are working on their basketball techniques, including how to shoot a basketball with one hand instead of a two-handed push. Upper-grade children are developing their bowling techniques, including how to perform the "natural hook." Congratulations to Aaron Ames, who bowled a "turkey" three strikes in a row last time out.
The fourth- through sixth-graders are studying the Age of Discovery. Students made mobiles with information on some lesser-known explorers, such as Sir Francis Drake, the first English explorer to circumnavigate the Earth.
The seventh- and eighth-graders have completed their study of the Civil War and now are bouncing back in time to study the formation of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights and the U.S. government system.
Students will have a short week this week as teachers attend the Teachers Conference in Anchorage.
