Ages: 8-11 yrs.
Teacher: Grady Giffey
The theme of this class is “The Spirit of Adventure,” and we will look for it in the ordinary and the extraordinary. Embracing adventure in what God has called you to is part of His invitation to know Him. The goal is to encourage young men to begin to think about their God-given adventure in the world!
American Girl Historical Class I
Teacher: Olivia Merritt

In addition, within this school year we will host a mother/daughter Victorian tea. It is not mandatory for participation in the class to own an American Girl Doll but students are encouraged to bring their favorite doll along with them each week.

American Girl Historical Class II
Teacher: Catrina Howell
Ages: 8-11 yrs.
This class will continue the study of the characters of the American Girl Doll books and what life was like for girls who lived in those time periods. With hands on activities, students will have the opportunity to meet Caroline (1812), Rebecca (1914), and Cecile & Marie-Grace (1953) by in-depth exploration into what shaped their worlds. Students will take a journey through time as they create an American Girls’ timeline, notebook, and time related crafts.
American Girl Historical Class III
Teacher: Adonna Pryor
Ages: 8-12 yrs.
The American Girl series paints a beautiful and inspiring picture of girls from times past. We read about their necessities such as clothing and food. We witness their everyday struggles during major historical periods in America. Their character encourages us to be more. Now, in American Girl III, we will examine what that looks like in the modern era. What does it mean to be an American Girl today? What are our responsibilities? With that in mind we will study issues concerning ourselves, our families, our communities, and our friends, all under the wing of our faith.
It is my belief that the Lord never puts any two people together except they can learn from each other. I fully expect and indeed I know that I will learn more from these girls than I will teach. My prayer is for the Lord to knit our hearts together, that we may show each other the love of God. Our guiding verse will be Colossians 2:2, “that their hearts may be encouraged, being knit together in love, to reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God’s mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Sewing & Fiber Arts
Ages: 10 yrs. and up
Teacher: Jessica Hagar
In this class we will spend half of the year learning sewing and the other half learning about Fiber Art Techniques. Students will learn basic to advanced sewing skills (hand and machine sewing). They will spend time learning the terminology and technical aspects of using a sewing machine and begin to create finished projects such as bags, scarves, clothing, and pillows. Students will spend half of the class learning about different forms of Fiber Art such as weaving, dyeing, knitting, felting, and more! We will also touch on the history of the craft. The goal is to learn how to design and make our own fabric that can then be used to create such items as accessories, decor, or clothing! **Class limit: 6*
