Proverbs 19:24 The sluggard buries his hand in the dish and will not even bring it back to his mouth.
At Timbers, students are not only already building the educational skills to feed themselves, by setting their own learning goals, but they are also learning that hard work reaps a big harvest, and laziness leaves them hungry!
With that, I wanted to give you a few updates on our week of paces:
1. Your student may be bringing homework this Friday to complete. This is not necessarily because your child was off task and didn't meet their goals. Students complete work at their own pace and are still getting accustomed to the ACE curriculum, therefore, they may need more time at home to complete it. We will be sending slips home with more information on this.
2. As we get students in front of PACES, as a team we are still fine-tuning what levels students are on. For several students, we have found that the PACE they were assigned was too difficult for them and therefore adjust accordingly. I have let parents know if we needed to adjust them below grade level.
3. If your child does bring homework home please make sure they have it completed by Monday or they will not be able to participate in afternoon classes and they will receive a demerit.
Also, make sure to check out our weekly Timber Dad's Weekly Round-Up. This week we chat about ACE's individualized instruction and epic Nerf battles!
-It has been such a huge blessing to have several families help out during daily our PACE time. That said, please make sure to fill out this month's Family Hours Tracker. If you have questions feel free to reach out!
-This coming Friday, September 30th is our Blades & Blazes Timber Dad's Hangout!
Come join us for food, fun, and fantastic axe throwing. Sept. 30th, 6-8 pm @ the 9-Mile church. : 18616 N. Sportsman Paradise LaneI
-Our "Pith & Heart" (boys & girls) classes on Thursdays have been a huge blessing to all involved! Therefore we'd love to invite Moms and Dads to join us. If you would ever like to join us on Thursday afternoons from 1:00-3:30 pm we'd love to have you!
What We Are Diggin On:
-As part of our Barn Raising event students will be performing the following songs:
K-5: Family is Family (Rhett Walker), Kentucky Fried Christmas (Annie Wilson)
6-12: All Glory Be To Christ (The Petersons), Be Thou My Vision, I Work At Subway (The Tim Hawkins version). I would encourage all families to start rocking out to them!
