"There should be no division in the body ... its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it."

Thousands of people in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean have been displaced and devastated by hurricanes and resultant flooding. Lives, homes, and schools have been destroyed. 

Would you prayerfully consider helping those schools that may need rebuilding in the very near future?

49.2 The Back-to-School Tree

You’ve made a fantastic, eternity-impacting decision by enrolling your kids in a Christian school. But how do you maximize your investment? I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas) to outline a few deliberate actions you can take to do so this school year. —Dan

49.1 Back to School—Round 2

The start of the school year is akin to New Year’s Day: it’s a new beginning, and you have no idea what the days ahead will bring. For that reason, it’s a great time to re-center on God. I’ve invited Jay Ferguson, headmaster of Grace Community School (Tyler, Texas), to address some ideas on keeping a godly perspective this year. —Dan

IEP and 504 Plans

We have more and more students entering our schools with IEPs and 504 Plans. Some schools have a form that they have parents sign acknowledging that they know that certain services in their child's plan cannot be provided. I would appreciate any help that can be provided for creating such a form for our school.
Overnight Trip Sleeping Arrangements Policy

Does your school have a policy on sleeping arrangements for overnight trips? On a church mission trip I was on, the district had a policy that adults and students did not sleep in the same rooms. There are pros and cons to adults being present and not being present in the rooms.
