Rhetoric School Creative Project Presentations This Week

A highlight each year, our Rhetoric school presentations educate, amaze and inspire as students show objects they have created that represent the time period studied. This year, projects will reflect the Modern time period from around 1850 to present. We’ve had all kinds of projects in the past, from hand-sewn dresses to pieces of furniture to catapults to working clocks.

The presentations begin about 3:30 and go to about 5:30 on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday this week in the combined rooms 254-258. Each student presentation is about 5 minutes in length, and people are welcome to come and go between presentations. We encourage you to come and bring your young students!


Spring Fest on April 13

A brief recap from last week:

  • Location: Lion’s Park in Temple (playground areas close by)
  • Lower School activities (Pre-K – 4th grades): 9 am to about 11:15 am. “Time Travel Through Modern History”: 8-10 stations.
  • Lunch about 11:15. Dave’s Burger Barn: hamburger lunches ($5) or hot dog lunches ($3).
  • Upper School “House Games”: noon to 3 pm


Spring Fest Items needed/ways you can help

Our youngest students look forward every year to fun and wacky games and activities led by our upper school students in the morning.  Please check this list to see if there are items you may be willing to lend.  Or if you are able, here are ways to volunteer and here is a list if you can bring coolers.  We appreciate your help and support in making this day a memorable one for all of our students.  One last thing, in consideration of others and the small morsel-sized animals in our petting zoo, we ask that you not bring your pets to Spring Fest. Thanks!

Bonus Fun Lunch Thursday, April 26th

We’ve added a Fun Lunch to our schedule this month and that means we will need more volunteers to serve.  If you are available at lunchtime and would like to serve, please sign up on our sign up sheets:

Fun Lunch: Upstairs

Fun Lunch: Downstairs

Grammar School will also be celebrating our Family Read Aloud, Lil Britches, with a book party.



2nd Grade Math Workshop tomorrow, April 3rd

We’ll be exploring multiplication and division in this co-teacher training workshop beginning at 3:05 pm. Students will have their own separate workshop at the same time.  We’ll meet upstairs in second grade classrooms. Please bring quiet activities for younger siblings and let your child’s teacher know you are coming.

Love Cursive?

Memoria Press holds a contest for students who use the New American Cursive handwriting book. The deadline is April 10.  Head to this link to enter and show off your lovely cursive skills.

Cursive contest.

6th Grade History Fair this Thursday

This is our second year for 6th grade students to create history projects and share them with younger students.  This year’s theme is World War II and students have been working hard to create interesting projects to share.

Students will man their projects and describe them to other Grammar School students from 11:25-1:25 on Thursday. Projects will be set up in the large foyer outside of the main worship center where we have chapel. Parents are welcome to stop by if you wish.
