We are excited to announce the bulletin board in the main hallway, as in the past, will be an opportunity to earn extra credit for grades one through five. This year’s theme is “Growing Christian Character”. There will be two opportunities a month to earn extra credit. Each month there will be a “basket" added to the bulletin board, the basket will list a one of the Fruits of the Spirit. Grades 1-5 your student finds a verse in the Bible that mentions that trait and copies the entire verse with reference. This research section can be handed into your teacher anytime that month. Younger students should be assisted, older students should try to do the work themselves with little guidance.
In addition, each month there will be a scripture highlighting that month’s trait which can be memorized and recited to your teacher for additional credit. Please note that you cannot “look up” the given verse to count as the research credit.
Remember, you may request what subject the credit is applied to, however, your teacher will have the final decision as to where the credit is applied. While we encourage you to help your student with this fun bonus activity, we ask that you use discretion on how much help your students need. If you have any questions you can ask your teacher.
