School Days, School Days..Dear old Golden Rule days'Reading and 'riting and 'rithmeticTaught to the tune of the hick'ry stick hick’ry stick?
This is so not politically correct! and.. I LIKE IT!
Back with a Back Pack..Back to school begins traditionally the day after Labor day in America. Parents, students, and teachers transition from vacations, picnics, and the beach to a world of chalk boards, text books, report cards, and a possible trip to the principle's office.
Don't Mind me.. BPLand schools offer a well rounded education, but unlike American Politicians our deep personal faith will affect our policy decisions. Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord.. and so it goes without saying the same should be true at school.A Venue to CELEBRATE.. Christmas beyond Santa Claus, Easter beyond the Easter Bunny. We sing God bless America, and the Star Spangled Banner, and say the Pledge.The Pledge of Allegeance is recited every morning and the phrase one nation under God is not a point of contention, but instead a point of emphasis.
Prayer in School..Along with a few silent but passionate prayers by an occasional unprepared student we are not afraid of a school prayer, AND this prayer will not be from the deity of the month club.
Meet you at the Pole.. We also participate in the Meet you at the Pole Prayer time .. weather permitting then head inside to continue our ongoing attitude of prayer.
Our education philosopy blends the three Rs with one God. 1+1=2, the first president of the United States was George Washington, and the one true God is the God from our Bibles.
2 way communications between students and teachers is promoted to ensure fairness. Excuses no matter how flimsy or how tall the tale will be met with an open mind. Grades will be communicated to parents and students allowing parents 'gently' exhort a child's success.
So there you have it.. Whether public, private, home schooled, OR the school of hard knocks (of which I am in my 57th year). May God bless and use students, teachers, and parents in great ways... and FOR HIS GLORY.
Love God, care for others.. Trust God and lean not unto your understanding.. in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. The rest of life in comparison is TRIVIAL PURSUIT.
So let me leave you with an outline gleaned from the core curriculum at our
