Lions’ Sports News May 5

As our 8th grade students prepare for graduation, our athletes share their reflections on their athletic experiences at The Christ School. Enjoy! 

My athletic experience at TCS is something that I will never forget. The interactions with my friends made sports something I looked forward to and the coaches, especially coach Oz, were amazing. – Jace Bostedo

My cross country coach would always bring popsicles to practice. My coaches helped me a lot with improving my technique. I feel like the exercise helped me stay active. – Zion Braland

While participating in sports at TCS, I have experienced communities of supporting, encouraging, and uplifting people. The coaches provide great advice for sports and living a life for Christ. I have been blessed to participate in competitions with Godly coaches and supportive teammates and will remember these experiences for years to come. – Anna Wells Burden

Athletics at TCS were well organized and being a part of the community of TCS was fun. I enjoyed participating in sports at TCS. – Luke Daly

Throughout my TCS career, athletics has been a major part of my years here. I am so thankful that The Christ school community reaches out to everyone to include them in sports. – Lauren DeOrio

My experience with TCS sports is something that I will never forget. The things that made my experience unforgettable were the amazing coaches and players. I have learned so much about teamwork and friendship through TCS sports, and I am super sad that we all won’t be moving on together. – Sam Dunaway

I enjoyed the experience of being with the 6th and 7th graders to help ease them into middle school and the teamwork with my friends. The coaches were helpful in developing my skills.  – Connor Gullikson

During my TCS athletic experience, I really liked how the coaches were always helping us and would never give up on us. I also liked how each year when I played a sport, it helped bring me closer to my peers. – Ashley Hale

My experience with TCS athletics has been great! In seventh grade, coach K wanted me to do high jumping in track & field and I’ve loved it ever since. TCS made me feel included and encouraged.  – Liv Harrison

My athletic experience at TCS was great! While not exactly easy, it made me ready for high school sports. I was always being pushed to achieve the best that I could. It not only helped me become a better team player but also helped me show how in whatever I do, to glorify God while doing it.  – Benny Hewitt

My athletic experience at The Christ School provided an amazing platform for growth and adventure. Playing sports at TCS not only helped me mature on the court and field, but also off the playing field to become a better leader. – Garland Ingram

The coaches TCS provides are the most loving and supportive. They only want the best for you and truly care for every student they come across.  – Chloe LaTorre

Throughout the athletic teams I have been a part of in middle school, I have had great and memorable experiences. – Finley Miller

I liked participating in TCS sports. Even though I only did track in the years I’ve been here, I enjoyed the experience. – Sam Parks

Participating in sports at TCS was a lot of fun. I enjoyed playing with my friends in kindergarten – 8th grade and getting better and better throughout the years.  – Miller Phillips

Doing sports at TCS has brought me a lot closer to my teammates. I did soccer in 6th grade and it was a very memorable experience because we all looked up to the 8th graders on the team and formed a very strong team bond. I learned a lot from the older girls on the team and have very good memories of us all working together to win almost every game.  – Reagan Ravenscroft

My athletic experience at TCS has been a big part of my life. I am so grateful to be a part of such an inclusive and great athletic program. All of my favorite memories from TCS are from my experience playing TCS sports. – Emma Stallard

Thanks to TCS, I found the game of basketball and I immediately learned how fun it is to be a student athlete in my community. I truly learned what it means to be a part of my school athletically, and I am very thankful for TCS athletics.  – Dalton Stewart

The track meets this year were fun because we all got to cheer each other on. I loved encouraging my teammates on the relays and receiving the first place award.  – Owen Taulbee

While partaking in The Christ School athletics program, I was taught important volleyball skills, but also lessons in teamwork and good sportsmanship. The Christ School sports program created a bond between each volleyball team member that helped us care for and love one another. Coach Carter, Coach Wiborg, and Coach Oz also taught everyone important life skills and always cared for their athletes.  – Jennifer Vais

While being part of TCS athletics, you get to grow in relationships with your peers while keeping yourself healthy. I have a plethora of memories from my years at TCS of playing on the soccer team, track, volleyball, etc. and I know that I would not be who I am today if I did not participate in those sports.  – Katherine van Gelder

Playing sports at TCS taught me teamwork. In basketball, I learned to play for the team and not just for myself.  – Nickolas Vasquez

I can remember nervously walking into my very first cross country practice in 6th grade, almost three years ago. Now in eighth grade as the last two seasons girls’ captain, I got to see the immense amount of growth I have obtained thanks to everyone, especially Coach Townsend! I think we have all grown so much together! – Layla Webb

My athletic experience at TCS has brought me not only athleticism, but also fun and countless memories. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of multiple teams here and I will miss the positive, uplifting community. – Lexie Winrow

Analyzing Literature

Sixth grade ELA students are reading the novel, I Love You, Michael Collins, based on the launch and successful mission of Apollo 11 in 1969. They are participating in mini-projects to help them understand more about that historic mission and the astronauts who were a part of it. They have been analyzing the plot, setting, and characters of the book by rotating through literature circles; responding to the text through questioning strategies, vocabulary exploration, visualizing the scene, identifying the main parts of the plot, and connecting the story to their own lives. This novel study coincides with the 6th grade science unit on space.

Community Leader

A big Lions’ Roar to TCS 7th grade student Sadie Hansen, who discovered a need and is making it her mission to fill it. “I was researching service opportunities and learned that many girls have to prioritize what they purchase, and feminine hygiene products were not a priority,” says Sadie. After making some calls to local high schools, she discovered that this is a problem right here in our community. “The first two schools told us that they are pretty consistently blessed with food donations, but feminine hygiene products are often just completely overlooked,” says Sadie’s mother, Donna. With that in mind, Sadie began the Sister Swan Project, dedicated to filling this important need. “In February, I put a script together and created a video to ask people for donations and tell them what we were doing,” says Sadie. “Within less than an hour, people were starting to donate money to the project and were sending products to my house!” 

Sadie began by bringing donations to Evans High School and soon realized that this need was ongoing and widespread. Additional schools have reached out to the Sister Swan Project, including elementary schools. “Since we received donations from as far away as Texas, we have even given products to a high school there,” Sadie continues. “I would like to get enough donations before the end of school this year so I can give a big supply to girls to use over the summer.”

“The Sister Swan Project means a lot to me because I know that I am making a difference in the girls’ lives,” says Sadie. “I enjoy helping people and this project helps girls to be able to go to school and do their after school activities without having to worry about being properly protected.” 

“This has been a fabulous learning experience for Sadie,” says her mother, Donna. “Not just because she’s learned about the needs of those whose life circumstances are different than ours, but she’s learned about how to attract interest to a cause, how to educate people about your mission, how to track donations, how to thank people for donations and more.” 

Their website is still under construction, but it will be ready soon! In the meantime, to learn more about the Sister Swan Project, email SisterSwanProject@gmail.com.

 

April’s Acts of Kindness Week April 26-30

We have loved seeing all of the Community Service Bingo cards this week, filled with wonderful acts of kindness! Our April Acts of Kindness Week runs through this Friday. We hope it inspires our students to continue serving others all year!

Along with the theme of April’s Acts of Kindness, our middle school students have been collecting items for our 8th grade students’ capstone service trip which is right around the corner! In preparation for the work they will do for Appalachia Service Project May 3 through 7, we are collecting the following items from our middle school families:

  • New or gently used hammers, screwdrivers, and measuring tapes
  • New work gloves and first aid kits
  • Lowe’s gift cards to purchase lumber and insulation

OR

  • Select items from the Amazon wish list and ship directly to Zack Schoettes in Johnson City, TN.

We will be collecting items through Friday, April 30. Most importantly, we ask for your prayers for our 8th grade students, teachers and parents. May they be the hands and feet of Jesus as they serve this community. Thank you for helping us serve these families in need! Please reach out to Angela Harrison if you have any questions.

Building Spanish Fluency

La semana pasada, nuestros leones de la clase de español de 3º a 5º grado compartieron su rutina diaria. Tuvieron una conversación con 10 amigos y les preguntaron: ¿Qué haces por la mañana / la tarde / la noche? También están aprendiendo a decir la hora en español y a usar los días de la semana. Esta semana, los estudiantes están aprendiendo de los pronombres personales y cómo se conjugan los verbos en el presente.  El objetivo es que puedan hablar facilmente de las actividades que realizan semanalmente y hablar de las actividades de sus amigos de clase. Este es un logro que los estudiantes de español I de Middle School ya han logrado y es un paso esencial para desarrollar la fluidez. Me da mucho gusto ver a nuestros leones de la escuela primaria creciendo y mejorando constantemente en español.

Last week, our 3rd-5th grade Spanish Lions practiced talking about their daily routine. They had a conversation with at least 10 friends from class by asking in Spanish: What do you do in the morning/afternoon /night? They are also beginning to learn about telling time in Spanish and using the days of the week. This week, students are learning about personal pronouns and how to conjugate verbs in Spanish. The goal is to be able to talk about the activities they do as well as others. This is an accomplishment Middle School Spanish I students have done and is an essential step to building fluency. It is great to see our Lower School lions constantly growing and improving in Spanish.

CTP Testing

The Christ School administers standardized testing in the spring to all students in grades 1-8. We use the Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP Online), a test used by many other private schools. Grade levels will be testing only in the morning on specific days, per the schedule below. Classwork assignments and homework will be reduced during the testing days to alleviate any undue stress. Please help encourage your child in the hard work and learning they have shown throughout the year and that there is nothing more they need to do to prepare for this test.

CTP Online Assessment – General Testing Schedule:
2nd, 6th – 8th: April 13-15 (April 16 also for Algebra 1 and Geometry students)
1st, 3rd – 5th: April 20-22

How does TCS use standardized testing results?
The CTP is just one way that we measure student progress and the effectiveness of our curriculum resources. Standardized testing results provide us with distinct snapshots representing a child’s educational growth, and we use both the individual and group data to reflect and plan our day-to-day instruction and curriculum development. The CTP Online subject area tests align with our objectives (what we expect our students to know and be able to do) and yield useful results. Children and parents are encouraged not to stress unnecessarily over the results of the testing.

How can you help prepare your child?
Parents play an important role in helping children do well by making sure their child gets a good night’s sleep and has a nutritious breakfast. Here are some additional tips to help your children do their best:

  • Be sure students are on time each day. The classrooms are open at 7:45 a.m. and students are encouraged to use the window of time prior to chapel to settle in for the day. Children who rush into class at the last minute often feel less confident in successfully completing the tasks for the day.

  • Assure your child that he or she is very capable and well prepared; encourage them to give their best effort.

  • Students may need to remain quiet while others finish. Help your child select a good book to read when they are finished testing.

  • MIDDLE SCHOOL PARENTS: Remind your child to charge their Chromebook each night. They will be using their Chromebooks for testing and need a full battery charge. Students should bring their charger in case they need to use it during testing.

IMPORTANT NOTE: To ensure the integrity of the testing environment, students will not be admitted into the classrooms once testing has begun. Please ensure your child arrives at school on time. Any student who arrives after testing has begun will need to sit in the office and wait until a break in the testing session to join their class. The opportunity for make-up of missed tests is very limited. Our priority will be to provide make-up sessions for students who missed school due to a medical emergency or illness. All make-up tests will need to be completed during our testing window (April 12-22).

When will you receive your child’s CTP scores?
A copy of your child’s test scores will be sent home with the final report card the first week of June. We are glad to help with any questions regarding the score reports after you’ve received them.

If you have any questions regarding the CTP, please contact TJ Ross, Alissa Plaisance or Michael Noto.

Christian Living

Sixth grade Bible students are reflecting on what they have learned about Christian living this year and how to apply the principles. They have been asking, “What do we do with all of the gifts we have been given, like gratitude, empathy, mercy, peace, and hope?” The students have been studying the significance and influence of missions on the early church and how it has shaped the world we live in now. They researched influential missionaries and discovered what they have contributed to advancing the Kingdom of God. The students will continue learning about those who are actively serving in the mission field and preaching the gospel in foreign countries as they consider the call God has on their life.

Lessons from the Holocaust

Eighth grade ELA students are learning about the Holocaust. As they delve into this unit of study, they are discovering how one person can make a difference and how people possess the power to make their own choices and control their own behaviors. They are exploring that when prejudice is allowed to thrive, lives are at stake, and bystanders can be just as guilty as perpetrators. As they analyze this topic, the students confront present concerns involving loyalty, peer pressure, conformity, belonging, and scapegoating. When faced with these concerns, they can remember the fate of the Holocaust victims, and rather than ignore the others’ wrongdoings, help to create better situations for those who are victimized. Their teacher, Mrs. Sheldon, says, “We study and remember the mistakes made in the past so that we never repeat them. To honor Holocaust victims, we will celebrate the freedom to choose to act in the face of prejudice so that fateful events such as the Holocaust will never happen again.”

The Power of Plants

Sixth grade Earth Science students have been exploring the wonder of God’s creation, as well as our role in protecting it, while learning about the amazing world of plants. Throughout this unit, they have researched the vital role of healthy ecosystems, various “green careers,” plant-based solutions to community problems, and how hybrids can be developed to address specific needs. The students were able to see these concepts come to life with the visit of an interactive bus “field trip” on our campus. They had an opportunity to grind wheat, take part in a scavenger hunt, and plant seeds of a native plant.

Money Matters

Second grade students began an exploration of Economics by reading Money Madness, by David Adler. This expository text explores the concepts of bartering, the history of money, and how we use money today. The students created a timeline about the history of money that spanned from bartering in 6000 B.C. to digital money in modern times. In this unit of study, the students will explore the concept of supply and demand, how people must make choices because of limited resources, the benefits and costs of saving and spending, and how the US trades with other nations for goods and services.

Developing Confident Speakers

TCS 6th grade students participate in a Youth Leadership/Public Speaking course to develop communication and leadership skills. The ability to express yourself clearly so that you are heard and understood is a lifelong skill. The students speak before an audience, evaluate each other and give feedback, practice impromptu speaking, discover the principle of good listening, lead entire sessions, and present their thoughts and ideas logically and convincingly. Their teacher, Mrs. Gibbs says, “Our Youth Leadership/Public Speaking course is a program of Toastmasters International and our sessions resemble an adult Toastmasters’ session. It is amazing to see the students develop their confidence as they step into the various roles each speaking session offers.”

Feel Good Fridays

Every Friday afternoon, both fifth grade homerooms gather together for a time of fellowship, reflection, and fun. The weekly tradition of “Feel Good Fridays” has brought the students closer together and is a great way to wrap up the week. The groups kick off this time with the students sharing what has been going on in their own lives that makes them feel good. Fifth grade teacher, Ms. Forbes says, “The comments shared have brought both roars of laughter as well as tears. What has made this sharing time so special is that the children truly have begun to open up and allow themselves to be vulnerable with one another.” During their time together, they have completed STEAM challenges, worked on their STORES project, set grade level goals, participated in ice breakers, learned about and participated in popcorn prayer, and most recently, ventured outside to compete in a photo scavenger hunt. Ms. Forbes continues, “The time spent with each other has been a game changer! The weekly event has allowed the grade to slow down a bit and enjoy the gift of one another’s company and strive to build a stronger community.” Ms. Combs added, “Our fifth grade family looks forward to this time each week with great anticipation. We cherish these moments!”

Exploring Life Cycles

Second grade students are exploring life cycles in a cross curricular unit. In Bible, they learned about the Parable of the Sower and the Parable of the Mustard Seed. After reading about different types of soil, the students engaged in a hands-on lab where they observed properties of different soil samples. As this unit continues, experiments will help our students discover which soil is best to grow seeds. They are looking forward to making recycled terrariums to observe plant life cycles and exploring the life cycle of Florida butterflies.

Coding a Sandwich Builds Important Skills

Middle school coding and robotics students developed algorithms to code the steps to make a sunflower seed butter and jelly sandwich. Working in teams, they wrote their codes and asked their teacher, Ms. Wilkins, with ingredients in hand, to try each step. The students quickly discovered that coders must use very precise language and each step must be carefully considered. Details such as untying a twist tie, opening the bag, and taking out exactly two pieces of bread were forgotten, and then included, as the students worked through their carefully-crafted codes!
