The Whole Child
Each day as we walk into school, we pass under banners that say, “Love the Lord with all your Heart, Soul, Mind, & Strength.” The context of those banners comes from Mark 12:30-31, when Jesus is identifying the greatest commandments— to love God and to love our neighbors.
What I love about that passage is how heart, soul, mind & strength encompass the whole person, and I love how we strive to do that each day on Mustang Mountain.
This has been an atypical week, and today will certainly be no exception; however, that’s not necessarily a bad thing (even for a school). I love how during the final week of the grading period (which is hectic enough) we’ve had different opportunities for students to learn outside of the classroom (i.e., the final musical performance, several students traveling in Europe, our junior high choir tour yesterday, etc.).
This week has certainly been atypical for our school with students being out, the grading period ending, and with spring break right around the corner; however, it’s been very typical because we’ve been able to find different opportunities and different ways to educate the whole child. It may be hectic, but it’s a win.
