An Auction Reflection

Post by: Tuvette McCroskey, SCS Parent and Board Member

The 2014 SCS auction will forever be etched into the memories of all who attended. The elegant setting was more than perfect and bustled with lively conversation – Happiness pervaded the space. The apex of the evening was set to begin as Tassie DeMoney welcomed all and Tim Visser prayed for God’s blessing. We were reminded and set to enjoy a night of generous giving. An instant later the room dramatically darkened and the music was abruptly silenced. A power outage!

Hope for Shoreline Christian

Post by: Tuvette McCroskey, SCS Parent and Board Member

My family became a part of Shoreline Christian in 2005. Isaac began fourth grade and Lydia, my three year-old munchkin, started preschool. I remember pulling away from campus after a very reluctant goodbye from Lydia and a “see ya” from Isaac, thinking, “I’m free!”– at least for a few hours. Lydia warmed up to preschool and after a few months I, too, began some new friendships. In a few short years Shoreline Christian became a place for strong community for my whole family.

A Teacher's Invitation to Conference

Post by: Mr. Joel Bratt

When I was in high school parent-teacher conferences were an exercise in avoidance. My parent didn’t really want to go, the teachers didn’t really want to be there (Years later I would teach at my alma mater with the very people who were at one time my teachers. I learned then that many of them believed the fewer the teacher conferences (especially the contentious ones) the better), and I was okay with not letting those two groups get together. In fact, the only time my parents went to parent-teacher conferences was when I scored below an A- in any one class. B+ in Chemistry? Off to see Mr. Reikna.

I like to think we’ve made some progress when it comes to parent/student/teacher conferences in the last thirty years -- that we’ve made it beyond the “everything is ok unless there is a bad grade” routine. Maybe we have. Maybe we haven’t. Either way, there is always the next step in refining our attitudes and practices, and that is what we’d like to start (or continue) with you this fall.
