We are quickly approaching the season of Advent and I will be incorporating our Gospel value of Hope into our discussions.
The grade 6's will be starting Theme 2 in Fully Alive that focuses on Living in Relationships. We will examine normal stresses that occur in family life and friendships as well as effective communication. The students have been working on the Image of God that is portrayed in the Bible as well as their own personal perception of God. We will be moving on to examine the importance of the Ten Commandments and the Beatitudes.
For grade 5's we also will be starting Theme 2 in the Fully Alive program that also focuses on Living In Relationship. This theme examines the uniqueness of all families and the support they offer each other as well as the essential qualities of lasting friendships. The students have been working on the Covenants that God has made to His people through the bible as well as their own personal covenant with God. We will be building a Jesse Tree to learn of the ancestry of Jesus as we prepare our hearts for His coming into the world.
