Every week Andy prepares and leads 3 chapel services for the elementary students- one for K3-K5, one for grades 1-2, and one for grades 3-5. He has also been teaching the 12th grade Bible class each day- this month has focused on the topic of morality and ethics. Helping students to understand the difference between absolute truth and moral relativism and the impact that either of those beliefs has on their life and faith.
Megan has been teaching the 12th grade Government students about the origins of American democracy and they have been doing close readings of primary source documents such as Petition of Rights, Magna Carta, Common Sense, and others. In 11th grade US History her students just finished creating TV commercials that advertise the various colonies as if they were a travel agent in the year 1700. Her 12th grade homeroom is also busy planning their senior service trip to Taiwan.
