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.
Our school is a bit different--I know you know this, but humor me.

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.

As I consider what Shoreline Christian has meant to our family, community always comes to mind. A flashback to 2002 sets the stage for how the seeds of community were planted and how they continue to bear fruit. Read more >> about More Than Voices on the Phone
Last week I attended a webinar hosted by Christian School International on the topic of student recruitment. The two administrators from Christian school’s similar to our size shared ideas and stressed the importance of community involvement.

Here are a few of those things we can keep doing as a community. Read more >> about Student Recruitment: A Community Effort

I wish we could bottle all the enthusiasm and excitement from the start of our school year so that I could release it in small doses later in the year. New clothes, new faces, new school supplies, and renewed attitudes all blend together to generate a liturgy of praise. This continues into the school picnic where the simplicity of sharing a grilled hotdog with old friends and new acquaintances becomes an opportunity to worship within the ecosystem that supports the Christian formation of our children.

I met Tanita Horton at church several months ago. She had prayed for the Lord to send people to enrich the lives of "her kids”, as she is the office administrator at Campbell Hill Elementary School in Skyway. I approached her and told her that perhaps I could bring 8 students in my advisor group to do some art workshops with several of her classes, much like we had done for Service Days several years ago at Lockwood Elementary in Kenmore, which also had no art program.
