Teachers, students, bus rides, books, grades, and...
so much PRAYER!!
BACK TO SCHOOL IN THE BACK PEW
School Days, School Days..
Dear old Golden Rule days
'Reading and 'riting and 'rithmetic
Taught to the tune of the hick'ry stick (hick’ry stick? This is so NOT Politically Correct!).. I LIKE IT!
Traditionally the day after Labor day in America is back to school day. Parents, students, and teachers are making the transition from summer vacations, picnics, and the beach to a world of chalk boards, text books, report cards, and trips to the PRINCIPLE’S OFFICE regarding possible violations of the weapons policy.. AGAIN!
SCHOOL IN BPLand offer a quality well rounded education, but unlike American Politicians our deep personal faith will affect our school policy decisions. Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord.. well also Happy is the School whose God is the Lord!
BPLAND SCHOOLS celebrate Christmas beyond Santa Claus, and Easter beyond the Easter Bunny.
THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGEANCE is recited every morning and the phrase one nation under God is not a point of contention, but instead a point of emphasis..
Besides the bazillion silent but passionate prayers by the unprepared we are not afraid of a School Prayer, and this prayer will not be from the deity of the month club.
- We also participate in the Meet you at the Pole prayer time gathering where just about everyone turns out.. weather permitting.
In summary, education in BPLand blends the three Rs with one God. 1+1 = 2, the first president of the United States was George Washington, and equally true is the creator of the world is the same God from our Bibles.
IT MATTERS WHAT WE BELIEVE!

As evident by the above curriculum, BPLand is a caring, nurturing environment where spirit and academics are blended seamlessly.
Last but not least, communication between students and teachers is encouraged to ensure fair treatment of every circumstances aka /excuse no matter how flimsy or tall the tale,
Parental Involvment: Grades will be communicated with parents and students allowing parents to then become involved in exhorting their child's success.
So there you have it.. Whether public, private, home schooled, OR the school of hard knocks ( which I am in my 55th year). May God bless and use students, teachers, and parents in great ways... FOR HIS GLORY.
Love God, care for others.. Trust God and lean not unto your understanding.. in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. The rest of life in comparison is TRIVIAL PURSUIT.
Have a great school year you teacher types.. you.. MOLDERS OF YOUNG MINDS.
When they say MOLDERS are they talking about the forming and transforming of students minds through education.. OR.. is it like bread mold?
I guess it depends on the student... and depends on the teacher
