Knitting Community Together

Posted by: Aimee Ray, Preschool and Childcare Director

I firmly believe people are designed to be in community, and school is such a practical and automatic place to find it. But, meaningful connectedness doesn’t just happen, even if you are surrounded by the same community day after day. Building community takes time, intentionality, and giving of yourself to serve others; and often gives back in the form of connectedness and support from people when we need it the most.

Kelso's Choice: Learning to Problem Solve

Posted by: Andrea Grafmiller, SCS School Counselor

As the school counselor, I think it is important to interact with students in the classroom and teach them skills for coping with problems at school or at home. This year, I visited each of the elementary classrooms to teach the students about Kelso’s Choices. Kelso is a frog puppet that helps me teach the students about how to solve their own small problems. First, I help students understand the difference between small problems and big problems. A big problem is when a student feels scared or there is a risk of someone getting hurt.

SCS First Grade Turkey Recipes

Its that time of the year . . . time to be thankful for our creative First Graders and their Thanksgiving Turkey Recipes.  Thanks to the help of Juanita Bunch (recipe scribe) and Jay Faber (recipe illustrator), the 26th edition of this tradition is ready for your enjoyment.  Yes, the First Graders at Shoreline Christian have been trying to cook turkeys since 1990. Happy Thanksgiving from Mrs. Faber and the Class of 2028.

Growing Emotionally and Socially

Posted by: Andrea Grafmiller, SCS School Counselor
 
As a school counselor, I believe it is important for Shoreline Christian to help students grow, not only academically, but also emotionally and socially. An essential part of my role as the school counselor is to support students’ social and emotional growth in order to help them build a foundation for their futures. I facilitate social and emotional learning through our counseling program from a holistic approach, where I reach students in the classrooms, small groups, and individually.

2016 School Board Nominees

Huge Thank You!

We want to thank Wolter Korf, Tuvette McCroskey, and Alisha Steich for their service to the school and community. Their contributions to the board will be missed next year!

School Board Math

Historically, the School Board has been composed of 8-10 members--parents, past parents, alumni, grandparents, and/or friends of SCS. This school year we had 9 members serving. Three of those members have completed their three-year term--one will be up for re-election--and one member is stepping off the board for personal reasons. This means that we have up to 5 open spots on the board to fill for the 2016-2017 school year. Below are the nominees for you to consider. Voting will take place at the Society Meeting on May 16 @ 7:30 pm. Read more >> about 2016 School Board Nominees

Gifting Appreciated Stock: It’s a win-win!

Post by the Finance Committee

Given just how far the stock market has risen in the past several years, many investors are fortunate enough to have investments that have appreciated in value substantially. That's good news for the value of your investment portfolio, but if you own those investments in a taxable account, then you'll have to pay what could be a substantial amount of tax on the capital gains that those investments have earned since you bought them. Even at preferential long-term capital-gains rates, the prospect of paying as much as 20% of your hard-earned gains to the IRS probably isn't the kind of charity you had in mind.

Preschool and the Gospel

I’ve mentioned before that I have son in preschool at Shoreline Christian School; his name is John. He has a pretty great story for being only three, but that’s another blog post for another time. He and I have shared so many sweet moments over the years, but a recent conversation really stands out. It’s the one where I was able to share the gospel with him.
