It All Starts With Mindset | Joshua Institute “Mindset” is a buzz word everywhere these days. But what does it mean, really? Does a growth vs. fixed mindset really make a difference in the long run? Does the way I think about things, especially if they are hard or even extremely difficult really affect the outcomes in my life? Actually it d...

The high school students are taking some time these first few weeks to figure out what they are interested in learning more about to help them when choosing internship sites. Here they are doing quick 2 minute speed interviews with other about what they would like to do and what they would like to learn more about. We saw business handshakes after the interviews, students giving each other suggestions for possible places to intern and lots of thoughtful answers...and some creative answers as well! We are off to a great start!

A big thank you to Mrs. Tanya Boyd of Heirs & Graces Cotillion for teaching our high school about etiquette and the art of dancing. This week we learned the Cotton Eyed Joe and the Virginia Reel, and all about proper introductions.

The secondary has been making the most of our Leaving to Learn opportunities. Enjoy a look at our students all dressed up for our trip to the federal courthouse where we learned about the legal process and performed mock trials. Last week we were off to Dart Warz to practice working together and perseverance, and really to have a great excuse to get a little crazy!

The students worked hard on these projects. Time to see how they did.

Teacher dilemma:
A large project before break= much grading + prep work during break

You could say today’s secondary leaving to learn activity to Circustrix was all about pushing our boundaries, testing our limits and perseverance...or you could just admit it was about a whole lotta fun!!!

The secondary enjoyed a leaving to learn day at Celebration Park. What a gorgeous day to be outside enjoying God’s creation and learning about Native American history in our neck of the woods.

Conveying God's Love Through Discipline (Part 1 of 2)

____From Carolyn Gore: ILCA Elementary Teacher____

Here is one gem from this free Focus on the Family podcast:

It started to ramp up the way it usually ramps up. He was complaining about math. His ears start to get red and his veins start to pop like always....

So I took a step back and I took a breath and I said that prayer. I said, "You just need to know something in the middle of all this. Math is important. You know that, but I want you to know something way more important. I love you no matter how math goes."

He just broke down in TEARS, sobbing, and jumped into my arms. Why? Because he didn't know until that moment that DADDY LOVES ME EVEN WHEN I'M STRUGGLING.

That's what our kids need to know.
