After having a two day vacation last week because the teachers attended a pastor-teacher conference in Wasilla, the students at Grace Lutheran are back at the books finishing up the school year.
The seventh- and eighth-graders are studying World War I in history class, and the fifth- and sixth-graders are mastering predicate adjectives in English class.
The lower-grade classroom is continuing its study of Alaska by delving into the state's unique flora and fauna.
The first- through fourth-graders will share their animal reports shortly.
The lower-graders continue to write and receive friendly letters from friends and family around the state and the Lower 48.
The nice weather lends itself well to an all-school whiffle ball game during the noon recess. In physical education class, the upper-graders are playing baseball, and the lower-graders are preparing for the Hershey Track Meet by getting in shape for the running events and the softball throw.
The kindergartners are into time and money in math class and the animal kingdom in science class. Each kindergartner drew a poster that illustrated the five groups of vertebrates. They also are studying animal babies.
In Christlight this week, the students are studying the life of Jonah and learning that God wants everyone to be missionaries and to share the love of Jesus.
Grace Lutheran is taking registration for preschool through eighth grade for the 2004-05 school year. For more information about the school's Christ-centered curriculum, call Mr. Leckwee at 283-9551 or drop in and visit the school on Ciechanski Road.
