Helpful Summer Habits

July 7th, 2021 by Becca Tellinghuisen

Summer offers us an opportunity to alter the pace of our family life and to recover (or introduce) some healthy habits. Here are a few we recommend:

  • Dedicate time for frequent family meals and devotions.
  • Read daily! Check out the summer reading lists our teachers have compiled.
  • Practice curiosity and joy indoors and outdoors. Limit screen time (no more than one hour per day on average), allow for plenty of creative playtime, and expand what Mr. Marth calls “sky time” – the time you spend outside.
  • Establish daily/weekly chores and family routines.
  • Read our bi-weekly summer newsletters. These will keep you informed of coming events and noteworthy news.

Thank you again for partnering with us as we strive to guide children toward the wonder, knowledge, and love of God and His world!


School Supply Lists

July 7th, 2021 by Becca Tellinghuisen

Retailers will soon be advertising notebooks, folders, and glue sticks (if they haven’t already). Our 2021-2022 school supply lists are now available so you can take advantage of the sales. Please read the list for your child(ren)’s grade carefully so no items are missed. Items should be labeled with your child’s name or initials.

We encourage you to watch their website for promotional offers this summer. Though our local Lands’ End store at CenterPoint does not carry school uniforms, you may order from the in-store kiosk and receive free shipping.


Celebrating Our Graduates

June 21st, 2021 by Becca Tellinghuisen

Thank you to everyone who attended Awards and Graduation. It was a blessing to celebrate together. Please continue to pray for Isaac, Abby, Jacob, and Sophia as they begin this new chapter. We share this blessing from Romans 15:

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

To see the tributes that included Mr. Marth’s parting words to each of the graduates, please see the email sent on the last day of school.


Office Hours and Faculty Conference

June 21st, 2021 by Becca Tellinghuisen

School may be out for the summer, but our office is getting ready for next year! The office is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until noon. If you plan to stop by school this summer, we recommend you call first or check the Outlook or website calendars as staff may be unavailable or away from their desks at a given moment.

Professional development is an important part of our preparation for next year. Our staff regularly attends Society for Classical Learning (SCL) summer conferences and will do so again next week, though virtually.


Summertime Is Reading Time!

June 21st, 2021 by Becca Tellinghuisen

Whether you are spending a day at the beach or just at home, a great book can be a great summer companion. Our teachers have compiled lists of recommended readings for each grade. They include a wide range of titles that both delight and teach.

This page contains content available to members only. Please log in to view the full page.

We encourage you to look over the list and set reading goals for your family this summer. Maybe one book a week? Maybe ten before schools starts? If you are looking for a book, you can search the Grand Rapids Public Library or the Kent District Library website for availability. They also have special summer events and reading programs for kids.

Enjoy the summer and happy reading!

Thank You, Mrs. Richards!

June 21st, 2021 by Becca Tellinghuisen

Though we are thrilled that Mrs. Richards is answering God’s call to work in Africa, we are, of course, sad to see her go. She wrapped up the year with one last poetry pizza party in 5th/6th and a Jane Austen tea in 7th/8th. At Awards Night and Graduation, we presented her with flowers and a box of notes from current students and alumni.
