COLUMN: Dedicating more time to engaging outside at Monroe County Day School

Monroe Country Day School’s philosophy promotes students shedding their indoor lifestyles and giving them, as a part of every day, plenty of exposure to fresh air, pure sunlight, and unstructured play. With Monroe’s growth over the last 90 years, our historic school building is now located in town rather than in the country yet the school still has wooded areas to the north, a garden to the south and room for running and playing.

The end of the school year always feels like a sprint to the finish line at the end of a marathon. We’ve pushed past the runner’s block, we’re so close to the end, and we’re giving everything we’ve got to finish strong. And when we finish we can relax and revel in our accomplishments.

COLUMN: Wrapping up another year as LCA concludes 20th anniversary term
Posted: April 14, 2018

I love living in the southeast where we enjoy the climate changes that come with experiencing four seasons. In the winter it is impossible to see all that is taking place beneath the surface to create the beautiful new blooms that arrive with spring. The arrival of spring signifies new in so many ways, and at Loganville Christian Academy this includes programs, initiatives, personnel, and momentum.

COLUMN: Utilizing engineering and creative thinking at Covenant Christian
Posted: February 24, 2018

This past week was Engineers Week, which celebrates how engineers make a difference by creating innovations and encourages children to think like engineers. Engineering simply means that we look at problems and try to solve them using creative thinking. Creative problem solving is a much needed skill in today’s world, and every area of our curriculum uses this skill. Students use scientific order, research innovations in history, write and draw their findings, designs, and directions, and find the mathematical principles and patterns to execute their ideas. It’s important to cultivate creative thinking in our children even when they’re not at school, and there are plenty of easy and inexpensive ways to do this at home.
