A major theme this year is learning more about the Ten Commandments.

Growing in Jesus Christ
Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.”

The Commandments help us to love God
“Lord teach me the way of Your laws: I shall observe them with care.” (Psalm 119:33)

The Commandments help us to love others
“You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:39)

We are called to Holiness.
“Do this in remembrance of me.” (1 Corinthians 11:24)


Subject: ELA

This year, we are so excited to have acquired Pearson’s ReadyGEN Learning Resources, with a trade-book collection which contains a balance of literature and informational texts. This collection offers students an opportunity to continue exploring the unit topics through a variety of genres, poems, biographies and more.

ReadyGEN is an integrated literacy program that accelerates learning for all by presenting modeled reading experiences with authentic text. Students engage in practice, build motivation, and improve their reading stamina.

Writing in ReadyGEN follows the gradual realization of responsibility model, and each writing lesson in a module focuses on one writing type – narrative, informative or opinion.
