Looking to try something new, Skarlett Stanfield, a 7th-grade student at Landmark Christian, enrolled in 3D Printing & Coding as one of her semester electives this school year. 7th-grade students have the option to take up to two elective courses each semester, and then continue that study or switch to a third and or fourth elective the second semester. Having never done any 3D printing or design, when Skarlett told her dad she was working on a home for her hamster, Holly, he expected a fairly rudimentary building. When she brought back her designed tower, onramp, and hideout for Holly, her parents weren’t the only ones excited about the surprise!
This month, elementary students on the Fairburn and Peachtree City campuses embark on outdoor learning adventures, led by our SOAR program coordinator, Mrs. Ann Marie Brezina. These mini-lessons are a newly incorporated special into the grade levels called the “4Life Nature School.”
In the first lesson, students learned about seeds, insects, and pollinators--God’s connected creation!
Could investing in a private school yield a better financial return for parents in the future? That depends on which private school you choose.
In weighing the potential pros and cons of private education, typically, one of the biggest "cons" parents ask themselves is: Can we justify the cost of private school tuition when public school is free, and there are several quality public school options from which to choose. With the rising price of college, it seems prudent to take advantage of what is free now to save money for later.
31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40
These words in the book of the Prophet Isaiah have been a part of the Landmark history from the start. They were the inspiration for the mission of a school that would prepare every child to impact the world through Jesus Christ. The families that started our school believed in the form of their mission. They trusted God with the details of the particulars of the mission before they knew the form it would take. They trusted the Lord and took a step of faith.
“The past is beautiful because one never realizes an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past." Virginia Wolf
