Good Moments!

I thought it'd be fun for this blog update to just include some highlight photos from the last couple weeks. Enjoy! 

Our goals for the semester!

Hello Parents,

Its been a fun semester so far. I wanted to share with you our semester goals and some hopes that you students shared with me at the beginning of the semester...

1) Personal Responsibility
Mrs. Moore and myself agreed that the focus students really need to improve in making sure they are working on taking care of their own personal things as well as being aware of things like their schedule and homework. Objectively we have created a chart in the classroom that every student gets assessed by the end of the day. 3 areas are considered, 1. personal responsibility 2. transitions from class to class 3) and, doing the class chores. 

2) Semester Hopes
I was really happy to hear that the students had hopes in the areas of music and healthcare (those are two things I really can help them with). 

Justice, Kiah, and Moriah all agreed they want to learn more about healthcare and how to help the sick from first aid to mental health. I was so happy to hear them expressing such care for those that are in need of care.

Diego, Johnny, and Asher all expressed a desire to grow in the area of their music skills. They all agreed its important and want to focus on those classes and even receive more attention for things like piano and guitar. 

All in all, Im really excited for where this semester is going and the growth Im seeing in each of these Focus A students! 

Check back soon for another post! 

These girls really love each other. They even dress alike on accident. Fun times.

The kids are watching their teachers from a dance competition a couple years ago. Of course, they are inspired!

CONVOS WITH YOUR KIDS THIS WEEK

Conversations have been good in our class this week in talking about how to practice spirituality through prayer, praise & worship, reading the Word, and service to others. Please take time to talk to your students about it. Things you could ask your students about this week:

  • How can you get more spiritually strong?
  • What is the kingdom of God like?
  • What is righteousness?

 

FORMAL WEAR REMINDER
We have reminded the students this week about the formal wear dress codes. They did a really good job after being reminded yesterday. If you have any questions about that dress code, let me know.

Thank you very much parents!

Week 7 - Working Hard

This weeks theme is on the ethic of working hard

"By working hard we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" Acts 20:35 

We will be discussing ways they can practically work harder and at school and at home. Take time to ask your students about these specifics.  

We also looking at stories in the life of Jesus where he worked hard for those that really needed his help.

Have a great week!  

Mr. Munoz

 

Week 5 - Sabbath

Law #4 "Rest when it’s time to rest and take time to enjoy your family and friends." Exodus 20:8

This week's lesson is a special because it really involves YOUR family. We are stressing the importance of Sabbath this week by giving the student opportunities consider that rest means remembering the Lord by enjoying your family and friends. If you get a chance ask them about what they have been learning about Sabbath at school, and think of some ways to make a day of rest special with your family and the Lord this week. 

Week 4 - Representing God

This past weeks theme was "Representing God" based on the scripture Exodus 20:7, "Remember you are God's children and you represent him to others: uphold his reputation!" We had a great discussing this, please ask your children about how said they would represent God at home (it will benefit your family, trust me ;-).
