  • STEM Lab action in 2nd grade. Task: construct a plant (showing correct plant parts)out of materials given.
  • The 6th through 8th graders were blessed to hear the inspirational story of Kim Phúc (“Napalm Girl”) as she recounted her life story from the bombing in Vietnam up to the present. She shared her awe-inspiring story of her road from hatred and bitterness to love, peace, joy, light, compassion, forgiveness, and conversion. She stated, “The more I prayed for my enemies, the softer my heart became. I was free!” Her talk was life-changing. #blessed #soartobemore #love #forgiveness #eagles
