“Let those who fear the Lord say: ‘His love endures forever.’” Psalm 118:4
Greetings from Gaarde's Middle School Land!
Whew! This has been an interesting - and fantastic - Quarter 4 for all of our middle school students and staff. We are blessed with technology that allows us to press strongly ahead in our studies, even when confined to our homes. Through Google Meet calls we are keeping each other apprised of how things are going and getting a lot of learning done in the meantime. This group of middle school students is a wonderful crew and we are very proud of each and every one of them.
Of course, it hasn't all been work, work, work. We've also found ways to keep everyone's competitive streak alive. You can see from the pictures that we had a few Color War winners for April's Spirit Day, and Kayla Rader won our "take-a-picture-in-mid-air" contest.
We are looking forward to ending the year strong and looking forward to seeing everyone back next year!
Free Food Ministry of Tigard & Willowbrook Food Pantry in Sherwood are both working diligently to provide food for our local areas.
