This Sunday, SCS 7th grader Ione will be representing our school at the local spelling bee! Ione won our school spelling bee back in February. On Sunday, she will be competing against other students from King and Snohomish Counties at Town Hall Seattle. The winner of this contest will advance to the next level.

Our mission statement calls us to partner together (school, church, and home) to help our students develop their unique gifts and abilities. We want our students to explore all kinds of vocations and find one that fits best with their God-given gifts. We hope students will find careers that use their gifts to in response to God’s love, allowing their work to be their worship. Read more >> about Kingdom Work: Discovering our Vocational Calling

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, it was a period of pondering, of questioning, of overwhelming doubt about everything we know to be true. Okay, all of that is false. What is true is that a short time ago, the staff of Shoreline Christian School decided to spice things up. They decided that some of our Fridays needed to be more...phenomenal. If you haven’t yet read Joel Bratt’s article on Phenomenal Fridays, I recommend you do so ASAP (which, of course, stands for Act Swiftly Awesome Person). He very nicely explained the conversations and reasoning behind Phenomenal Fridays. Now I present to you a student reaction - an after-the-fact review of our first experience with Phenomenal Friday.
Education isn't a tree, it's a web.
About a year ago, I asked Mr. Visser where he thinks schooling will be in five years, ten years, fifteen years? At the time we were talking about technology, but what ensued was a much larger discussion about schooling in general -- one that I think holds great promise for SCS.
In my first few weeks at Watson Groen Christian, I was introduced to Mins Reinsma; however, I really never got to know him until the day he showed up in my office. It was a hectic type of day filled with all the trivia that is administration. The office told me that someone from the church wanted to see me. There was that quick thought--Now what have I done?
As the new school year is fast approaching, we’d like to introduce you to two new members of the Shoreline Christian staff and faculty. Read more >> about New Staff Members Join Shoreline Christian School Community
This semester in their Explorations class, junior high students have experienced a wide variety of lesson units: from “Married in Middle School” to Fabulous Fridays, to the current Career Speakers series. The purpose of this class is to expose the students to an array of topics different than typical classroom lessons, that their interests may be featured or new interests may be developed.
