 Classroom Theme  -  “Flying High Together”

  • The theme is based on Isaiah 40:30-31. . . those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles . . .
  • 8th Graders set goals as a class and individual goals for the 2009 – 2010 school year.
  • Throughout the year students learn to soar by relying on their Lord as their faith is renewed.

Faith and Values Class

  • 8th graders continue to study our Lutheran faith with an emphasis on how they apply that faith in their daily lives.
  • As students apply their faith they keep a journal, work on topic related projects, and do Christian Living service projects.
