STUDENT LIFE AT SPOKANE CLASSICAL
Student life in the classrooms, halls, and playground reflects joy and sweet-spirited friendship. Parents and staff at the school can feel the goodness of God's Spirit at work in all of school life. Watching the older students interacting with the younger students and students interacting with their teachers brings great delight to the soul.
Speech Meet is always so much fun to watch. The students work hard and that effort pays off! What a delight to watch all of the students perform their various Bible verse, historical oration, fable or poetry selections. Quite a number of students received the Blue-Ribbon Award representing superior work. A few even received the special Purple Ribbon for superior performance of an extended length piece. We sent our best in 1st-6th grade to Regional Speech Meet as well where they performed excellently.
Students performed very well at the SCCS Spelling Bee. This competition requires great concentration while under pressure. The finals were filled with excitement as round after round passed until just three competitors remained. This year's Spelling Bee Champion was 4th grader, Bethan Miles, with Jenna Horning taking 2nd place and Ben Barrett taking 3rd. A big congratulations goes out to all SCCS students. They put hard work into honing their spelling skills and remaining focused during competition.
What a terrific event! It was tremendously encouraging to see the work and creativity students put into their projects and the amount of learning that took place. The Science Fair is a celebration of God's creation, students' interests, tool building, and joy in the completion of a project well done.
Events such as these stretch the students and teach them to manage complexity under a reasonable amount of stress. These are "just drills" that challenge students in preparation for future projects, challenges, and adversities they will face in the world as adults. All of this works toward building, equipping, and preparing for faithful living.
