A Look at the School Budget from the VP’s Point of View

Posted by Andrea DeYoung, SCS Board Vice President

While January marks the start of a new calendar year, it is right in the middle of our fiscal year at Shoreline Christian. And that means budget season. We have talked to you before about our budget process, at Society Meetings and in blog posts, but it’s a topic that benefits from revisiting from time to time.

I am Grateful

Posted by Eileen Faber, 1st grade teacher

I’m not only certified to teach First Grade, I have a K-12 English teaching endorsement. This summer when I renewed my certificate for the 6th time, I once again was told that I could take Joel Bratt’s job.

I found the discussion to be fascinating as it weaved from problems to potential solutions for the problems to problems with the solutions.  The discussion was interspersed with speeches,

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.
