Happy first day of school ANCS! Can't wait to join you on campus on August 24.
I still have my โ€œLove that sticksโ€ note from February. Who knew it would continue to be so meaningful to me well into April and beyond!
Will you be adding High School in the Fall of 2020?
I really like this school meets the social and emotional needs for the students. What a fun way teach students to be life long learners, real world experiences. Students have the tools and guidance they will need to think outside the box.
The teachers are very nice and very skilled. The school is small, but is filled with love. Every student will get help from the teacher. My son is very happy at this school. The students are from a lot of different countries and everyone can know and do activities from the cultures of the different countries. We are happy at here.
Got a ukulele at Arbor Music this weekend! They have tons of fun styles and colors. :) Great to support a local business, too!
So excited to see this school coming to the Woodlands!

A private, Christ-centered international school, educating globally minded leaders and learners in PK-8th grade in The Woodlands and North Houston areas.

We offer a unique integrated STEM program and Dual Immersion Spanish. ANCS's mission is to nurture the hearts and minds of all students and to pursue academic excellence, with a mindset of continuous growth and learning. We have small class sizes and credentialed teachers providing highly individualized learning.

Operating as usual

What is Spanish (or any language) class without FOOD? Food is a key way to experience CULTURE and practice language in context. The middle school heritage speakers are doing a Mexico unit, so they brought food. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿš๐ŸฐThe beginners are learning food names and phrases like โ€œquisieraโ€ so they received a โ€œmenuโ€ with the drinks and dishes available, and they had to order from their โ€œwait staffโ€ (the advanced students) in our restaurant classroom. ๐Ÿ˜‹๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

We were honored to have nationally recognized literacy consultant and curriculum author (and ANCS godparent!) Dr. Joyce A. Carroll visit on Friday and teach a guest class on poetry to our 1st-4th graders. They had a great time and even composed their own beautiful poems. #reading #poetry #literacyeducation #privateschools #thewoodlandstx

Our team ran the #milesformeals5k this morning! Kudos to the finishers, especially Mr. Michalik who won 1st place ๐Ÿฅ‡in his division! Dr. Puig, Ethan W. and Elena W. also landed in top ten in their divisions. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ We missed those who couldnโ€™t make it. โค๏ธ So much fun and we are already looking forward to the next one! #funrun #mealsonwheels @mealsonwheelsmc

Overheard with the littles in PE: a beautiful discussion about "making mistakes." Went like this:

Coach: "Raise your hand if you've ever made a mistake! [hands go up...MOSTLY ๐Ÿ˜‚] Yeah, you know, we *all* make mistakes sometimes. What do you think is *really great* about making a mistake?"

And then they all jumped in about what you can learn from mistakes, why you shouldn't be afraid to make them, why making mistakes is a good thing, and so on. It was so heartfelt and fit in so well with our "growth mindset" we try to instill every day in the classroom! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Kids need that positive attitude toward learning from mistakes, instead of (falsely!) trying to shoot for perfection. Think about your best learning in school and in life. Has your growth and wisdom usually come from the things you did perfectly the first time?

What do you do as a parent to help instill a growth mindset in your child?

The 1st-4th graders got a demonstration this afternoon of how a โ€œvoiceโ€ (tablet with communication software to speak for people in lieu of verbal speech) works from our Journey friend Brysonโ€™s mom Jennifer. They were challenged to say several sentences and try to find where the right buttons were. It was a super informative discussion and also a fun activity! #autismacceptance

April is Autism Acceptance Month! Did you know some people with autism use devices to speak for them? The devices have menus with lots of different vocabulary available, so that the person can interact, communicate, and converse with complex language even in the absence of verbal speech.

Our 3rd-4th grade ELA class has been doing a read-aloud the last few weeks of a novel whose protagonist, Melody, is a non-verbal 5th grade girl who uses both a wheelchair AND a device to speak. She narrates in 1st person and highlights her thoughts and opinions on school, classmates, and the frustrations of living with disabilities that hamper her communication and mask her actual high level of intelligence.

Thanks very much to our friends Jennifer and her son Bryson at Journey for sharing these great pics!

This Saturday we had students from our Explorers class compete alongside their teammates from All Nations Community School at the Santa Fe VEX IQ Rise Above Robotics Tournament. They all did incredible and worked so well with their teams! We are so thankful for the ConocoPhillips Rice University AMP! Innovation Grant for making all of this possible!

This quarterโ€™s elective options include a STEM โ€œSpace Rocketโ€ class - which, as you can imagine, was a popular choice! Today they have started off learning about aerodynamics and making some simple paper rockets to understand what structural components affect flight thrust and so on. Future #aerospaceengineer students around here!! #stemeducation ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Recent adventures in cooking club! The last Friday of the quarter we celebrated with a fun no-bake dessert.

Help us spread the word about our Dual Immersion program for Pre-K through 2nd!

We are so thrilled that our youngest classes have greatly expanded this year. This precious bilingual darling joined us just recently part-time in Pre-K! ๐Ÿ˜

We would love to increase the younger grades' enrollment enough next year to split them into three groups instead of two. Tell your friends with young children! :)

On Friday, the upper-level Spanish students celebrated finishing their first group read for a full-length novel together. Esperanza renace (Esperanza Rising in the original English) has chapter titles named after fruits and vegetables. It is a CHALLENGING read in Spanish due to the level of vocabulary involved.

We brought in asparagus, peaches, avocados and more to analyze the meaning of last two chapters and reflect on the structure of the book as a whole. It was a "delicious" discussion, and well-deserved for the amount of effort they put in! :D

03/09/2021

Pop quiz: What does "Russian mountain" actually mean in Spanish? Can you figure it out from the illustration? ๐Ÿ˜†

Check out this 3rd grader's sense of accomplishment after overcoming a struggle! Read on if you want to hear the full story. :)

At ANCS, we are proud to have a 1:1 laptop ratio for 3rd grade and up, along with a host of other technologies and online tools for all grade levels.

But these tools are to be used judiciously in education. At ANCS, we are careful to choose technology when it is helpful, and we are mindful of the research that supports continuing to use fine motor skills and hand-written materials, especially for younger grades.

One of our 3rd graders was struggling with feeling challenged by an "adaptive" (i.e. the question level adapts to whether you get it right or wrong, and your score out of 100 goes up or down accordingly) online program to practice a particular Spanish skill. Rather than see him continue to be frustrated, Doctora Puig made him cards for a matching "game."

After *only 2 days* of practice, the student could match up the verbs and then pounded his way correctly through the online version in only one sitting. He was SO proud of himself, rightfully so!

Did you know today is International Women's Day? Today celebrates women's achievements, but it is also a call to action for justice and parity.

On Friday, ANCS students together packed over 100 gift bags that will make their way to refugee women, who need and deserve every bit of help to survive and thrive.

What can you do this year to help make the world a more just and loving place for those in need around you?

Look at this beautiful exploration of textures and colors under Maestra Dehaquiz's guidance! ๐Ÿ˜

Human beings *need* creative outlets to explore ideas, regulate emotions and decrease stress. Students at ANCS have art 2x/wk and music 1x/wk.

Even Einstein, the quintessential scientific thinker, said in a 1929 interview: "I am enough of the artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge.โ€ To be strong in sciences and other areas, students need that creative processing and imaginative exploration!

Oak Ridge North approves 2-year permit extensions for All Nations, Journey schools

Have you heard yet?! (Read on...!)

Monday night we had a lengthy but productive meeting with Mayor Paul Bond, the City Council, and the Planning and Zoning Committee of Oak Ridge North, TX.

In a public hearing, they considered our request (along with Journey School's) for a 1-year extension of our special-use permit for staying at our current location behind Sojourn Baptist. Over 80 people were on the Zoom call!

We are thrilled to announce that instead of one year, they gave us TWO. We are grateful to the Lord, who provides beyond what we might think is possible (Eph. 3:20).

Thank you so much to the Council members in Oak Ridge North, who were so supportive of both our schools! We look forward to the next two years of a fruitful relationship.

Thanks, too, to Ben Johnson from Community Impact The Woodlands for covering our news!

communityimpact.com City Council renewed specific-use permits for two Robinson Road schools housed in the Sojourn Baptist Church building during a special session March 1.

We can surely all agree that children should love coming to school and learning, and that school is a place where they feel welcome, loved, and at home.

PE spotlight! Our middle schoolers have really stepped up to help mentor the younger students. The littles LOVE that they get to play with the big kids. This is not a requirement for the older kids; itโ€™s just campus culture of positive mentoring in action. The younger students yelled โ€œThank you, Coach Ethan! Thank you, Coach Ivan!โ€ as the older kids left. ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธโค๏ธ This was practice throwing, then they broke into groups for a game.

Friday before the storm, we had our Talent Show! The students really brought amazing talents to the stage. Unicycling, an original skit, singing, gymnastics, and so much more.

Thanks very much to Sojourn Baptist for the use of the sanctuary since the weather didn't cooperate for outside!
