TCS Exudes Joy!

The Christ School was delighted to receive this wonderful message from one of our neighbors. Our love and joy shines through and spreads to those around us! We are excited to share the message with you:

“I drive by The Christ School in the morning on my way to work. It took me several months before I realized that this is an amazing way to start my day. I might even say, it adjusts my thinking and starts my day on a positive note. Each morning I see families walking their kids to school. Without exception, these families are animated and happy and interacting with each other. One day I thought I was going to have to rescue a mom from the street. She was laughing really hard with her daughter (I thought she might fall over)! One morning I witnessed a dad putting his arm over the shoulder of his son as his son was telling him something. Suddenly the son was wrapped in the dad’s arms as they laughed and his other son jumped in. What joyful moments! I finally realized how happy these children are to go to school. They wouldn’t be this happy on their way if they were going to be miserable at school. I called the school to tell them this and learned that they work hard to make school a welcoming place, not only for children, but for families. They are obviously succeeding. The perhaps unintended benefit of this school is the impact they have on the neighborhood. I look forward to driving by in the morning! I hope I am not the only one who notices.”

The Challenge to Make a Difference

Eighth grade students visited Maitland Holocaust Museum as an extension of their ELA unit, “The Challenge to Make a Difference.” By studying the Holocaust, students are learning to stand up for what is right, that one person can make a difference, and they possess the power to make their own choices and control their own behaviors. This helps students understand how to confront present concerns involving loyalty, peer pressure, conformity, belonging, and scapegoating. Their teacher, Mrs. Sheldon, says, “My prayer is they realize that bystanders are just as guilty as perpetrators.”

Spoken Word

Middle school students have the opportunity to explore a variety of interests through elective classes. This semester, a new elective option, Spoken Word, allows students to use their creativity to deepen their writing, speaking, and presenting skills. The students have been working on staging and being comfortable with performance. They have been exploring various topics and creating themed poems with backgrounds to help infuse the emotion they want to convey. Presentations have been centered around Christ, things that inspire them and defining who they are through spoken word poetry. “I am impressed with my students’ creativity and thoughtful performance ideas,” says their teacher, Mr. Williams. “They have incorporated instruments and added rhythm to deepen the emotion of their presentations.”

Christmas Book Countdown

At the beginning of the Christmas season, Ms. DeLullo’s class discovered many wrapped books under their classroom Christmas tree. As a special surprise, Ms. DeLullo introduced the Christmas Book Countdown. Every morning students enter her room full of anticipation to see what the book of the day will be. A new book is unwrapped each day and the students take turns reading the book aloud to learn various aspects of the Christmas holiday. So far, the books have been about Jesus’ birth from the animals’ perspective, various legends of candy canes and Christmas trees, and some classics including How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Twas the Night Before Christmas. After all, a book is a gift that can be opened again and again!

Advent – Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love

Over the last few weeks, 6th grade Bible students have focused on Advent and the themes of Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love. They’ve dug deep into God’s Word and have reflected on various aspects of this Christmas season. During the week on hope, students considered how Mary may have felt; perhaps she was uncertain of what was to come or what others would think of her. Students were prompted to create a “Box of Peace” to send to Mary to comfort her when she may have felt worried and anxious. Ultimately, students uncovered God’s truths of finding hope when feeling hopeless, attaining peace when feeling worried, how to share the joy found in Christ, and how God sets an example of having unconditional love for each and every one of us.

Community Helpers

TCS first grade students have been learning about community helpers by exploring different occupations. The students were especially excited when TCS parents visited to share information on their jobs. To enhance the study, each student chose a community helper and researched the person’s occupation and how they help our community. The students then created buildings reflecting each professional’s workplace along with an informational poster to be used in an oral presentation. They also worked together to build a community in their classroom. TCS Art teacher, Mrs. DeLuca, assisted students in the creation of their buildings and STEAM teacher, Ms. Wilkins, guided students in the construction of their city. On Friday, parents were invited to see their communities and hear their research presentations.

Exploring Native American Tribes

Second grade students have been learning about Native American tribes and their regions. Using their research skills, they explored Epic! books and textbooks, took notes and transferred their notes into a poster board to give an oral presentation. The students dove deep into each region and recreated some of the tools and art the Native Americans made. As a class, they read “Thanksgiving on Thursday” and took part in a book study where they discovered even more about how the Native Americans helped the Pilgrims and about the very first Thanksgiving. They wrapped up this unit of study with a “feast” where they sat at a long table, shared a sweet treat and talked about things they are grateful for.

Get to Know – Nashown Williams

The Christ School has been delighted to welcome Nashown Williams to The Christ School team as 7th and 8th grade math teacher. “I am a husband, brother, uncle, and soon to be a father!” says Nashown. “My wife, Denise, and I have been together for twelve years; since high school, and have been married for two years. I love designing fish tanks with aquatic plants and I am a pretty good cook.”

“Education has had a tremendous impact on my life,” says Nashown. “My parents instilled education into five core principles when I was very young and I believe it is my duty to educate others. I have been inspired by the dedication of teachers to lead, listen to, and teach young people. I had wanted to be a teacher as I entered college, and earned my Master of Science in Curriculum & Instruction.”  

“I am enjoying teaching the students here at TCS,” he continues. “The best part of teaching math to middle school students is watching the undeniable growth and progress they make. Day to day progress is difficult to put on a scale, but the data over time is quite impressive. I also love their growing personalities and work ethic.”

“At TCS, I am supported by my colleagues and students,” says Nashown. “I have been welcomed and feel more confident that I can make an impact on the students’ growth.”

Nashown shares his favorite Bible verse:
In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction. For the time will come when people will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. – 2 Timothy 4:1-3

Get to Know – Gerry Ortiz

Please welcome Gerry Ortiz, The Christ School’s Spanish Teacher. Gerry was born and raised in Puerto Rico, in the greater San Juan area. “I grew up playing basketball and baseball along with my two brothers, while my sister took more to academia than athletics,” he says. “I like movies; I like to analyze them not just for entertainment but as an artform. I enjoy everything from classic cinema like Citizen Kane to Marvel movies and indie films.”

“What made me want to teach as a profession was having great teachers myself,” says Gerry. “My teachers inspired me to be a lifelong learner and taught me how to think logically, how to solve problems and even how to relate to people and express myself with empathy and mutual respect. I gave a lot of thought to other professions like sports management but ultimately decided that education was the field for me. I’ve been teaching for close to 8 years now, including my work as an intern.” 

“The thing I love most about teaching students a new language is their surprise; their amazement at what certain words look and/or sound like in another language or just as much of a surprise when they realize some English words are so similar or identical to Spanish words,” he says. “I’m asking the students, especially my 8th grade students, to speak the language as much as possible and so many of them sound very accurate. I look forward to seeing all of my students develop more fluency and confidence.” 

Gerry says, “The best part about working at TCS is that my students put in the work and are reaping the benefits! Every day they come to me having practiced what they’ve learned, looking for new information or showing off what they worked on by themselves. This gladdens my heart and makes me really proud to be their teacher.”

Gerry shares his favorite Bible verse:
Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.  – Matthew 6:34
