This week I visited Mrs. Reed’s kindergarten class and watched as the students presented their first ever book reports. They were called Shoebox Book Reports.

Happy Veterans Day from the Kindergarten class at Pinnacle Classical Academy! The class may be small, but their prayers are big! The class prays for several individuals on a regular basis, hearing updates and seeing pictures and occasionally receiving a special visit from them.
One of the things that is unique about Pinnacle Classical Academy is that both Kindergarten and 1st grade only meet for a half day. I’ve always considered this one of the perks of the school.

Everyone has a worldview or a lens by which they perceive the world around them, and every school teaches a worldview, whether intentionally or accidentally.

But the smile pictured above, taken of a little girl who just entered Kindergarten, tells a thousand tales of how she felt today.
