Grade 7 and 8 in February!

Hello faithful readers, The grade 7 and 8 class is in February!  Time flies when you are having fun.  This group of students have been learning in many different areas. In academics I have seen growth in writing, researching, and problem solving.  For example, in English class we are writing poetry.  Students are writing their own, finding poems via theme, and reciting poetry to their peers. In character I have witnessed growth as well.  Students are encouraging one another, building one another up by speaking life into each other.  There are stumbling blocks to student to student relationships, but they are learning that problems are simply opportunity to problem solve in order to find solutions.  Our goal is to be a caring community, resolving conflicts and building peace toward one another. In service we are raising money to give to Christian International Library.  We are focusing our efforts on putting Bibles and Christian literature into prisons in B.C.  Prison missionaries desire to put Bibles into the hands of inmates.  We will fundraise for one time donations, and collect Bibles and literature to mail to prisons in B.C. February is known as a love month, but what month is not a calling to love?  May our hearts know the Father's love everyday, in all situations. In Christ, Mr. Martens
