Two years ago we had an elementary chapel about the need of people in Kenya to get water, especially clean water. Boni Piper had come back from Kenya after helping build bases for water tanks, and she shared with us how much getting clean water drastically improved their lives. Some of the kids were moved to help raise money for those tanks. Two of the current 7th graders are still raising money for WEI, the organization that helps with this. Now Agnes, a lady from Kenya who had received a tank several years ago, was in Seattle to give a speech.

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.
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. Read more >> about SCS First Grade Turkey Recipes
