Important Speech Meet Information

November 10th, 2019 by Becca Tellinghuisen

We look forward to the Speech Meet on Wednesday, November 13, starting immediately after Morning Prayer at 8:20 a.m. We hope you will join us! In our experience, it is in the best interest of the students to begin promptly and to prevent interruption and delay once we have begun. Teachers and judges will not stop a classroom competition in progress. Parents who move between classrooms are asked to enter and exit classrooms between student speeches and not while students are presenting.

If you would like to know what time your child will be speaking, please contact the office.

Please remember the Speech Meet is a dress uniform event. Students should arrive in dress uniform on Wednesday morning.

Lesson 4. Be All-In: committing to something bigger than yourself

In the 2013 Oxford University Press book, Families and Faith, the authors examine how religion is passed down from one generation to the next (or isn’t). If you’re curious, the groups which do the best job of passing on their faith share these characteristics:
1. High standards, combined with warmth
2. Strong inter-generational relationships
3. Parents who are “all-in”

Lesson 3. Controlling technology (so it doesn’t control you): The medium is the message.

Have you had a chance to read the latest CCEC lesson? There is much to ponder, but if we could highlight one idea or recommendation, it would be the “tech sabbath”. Have you considered building a tech-free time into your week, or even every day (e.g., when the family is all together in the evening)? When we intentionally release the things to which we may be holding too tightly (or which feel like they are holding us!), it gives us time and space to be fully present with one another and to “be still and know” the Lord.
