Local Writer Shared Journey of Faith and Writing

"June had seen no rain, neither had July, and now August was sneaking up on the town of Tadley Ridge, and there still hadn't been enough rain in the whole county to fill a thimble."

 

So starts the story of Clara Beth and Scrub, the two central characters in The Miracle at Tadley Ridge, a mystery set in a fictional Nebraskan town, created by Sharon CHatwell. Last week, Lincoln Lutheran 7th grade students in Mrs. Jank's English class heard about Sharon's journey of writing.

Poetry Cafe Takes Over 7th/8th English

Thursday, February 24, the classroom of S1 transformed into a Poetry Cafe, where student poets stepped up to the mic in an exercise of sharing ideas through poetry.

Based on the idea that poetry does more than rhyming, students were encouraged to create a poem that represented an idea or image, and focus on that idea rather than a rhyme scheme.

Students entered the classroom to find an atmosphere of muted lighting, with the aroma of coffee floating in the air, and a complimentary biscotte (graham cracker) waiting for them.

The Middle School goes to Narnia!

On Wednesday the 15th, just a week before the long awaited Christmas break, the middle schoolers get a field trip! Students are going to enter the wardrobe, the wardrobe to the magical land of Narnia, that is. To cap off an introductory lesson to CS Lewis’s Narnain series, the kids will visit East Park Theater to watch The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Never Alone

If ever a message can be loud and clear, Judy Foster – a survivor of Nazi Holocaust – delivered just that.
