What If… We Choose to Love?

Yesterday we visited the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles.  There we learned the power of hate and prejudice and how destructive one’s words and actions could be in the lives of others.  In the case of the Jews of the Holocaust, millions.  It was overwhelming to see the atrocities that took place during WWII and that left an impact on our students and there actions.

As we were introduced to the destruction and pain as results of hate, we started to discuss how the world, our lives, would be different if we chose love and kindness instead.  It is a discussion we will continue today on our way to the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.

Here is a picture of a couple of students enjoying some Matza-ball soup at Canter’s Deli.  Here we enjoyed an authentic Jewish style meal.

Due to the Rain!

Do to the rain we will be eating lunch today at the Museum of Tolerance’s Cafe.

We will not be eating at the park due to it being to damp and wet.

You will need to bring around $10 for lunch.

Please arrive no later than 8:15am at the school today.

Thank You!

Deserved Applause to the Movie “The Lorax”

Today the 4th – 6th grade classes went to the movies to see Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax”

Hearing deserved applause at the end of a well done film from students is always music to a teachers ear.  This children’s book brought to life gives us many simple and needed reminders about taking care of our environment.  It also brought out two strong messages about life as well.  Parents, take time to talk to your students about them.

The first has to do with a conversation between Ted and Once-ler, when Once-ler entrusted the last seed to Ted.

Once-ler say’s to him, “It’s not about what it is. It’s about what it can become.”  That is a great outlock to have in life.  Jesus is the author of this thought.  Check out Ephesians 3:20  “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”  Christ can take any life and empower it to great things.

Second, at the end of the film we are left with a qoute that reads, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better.  It’s not.”  – Dr. Seuss, The Lorax.  This challenge of caring enough to do something, to take a risk, even if itis hard, is often what is missing in our lives.  What do you believe Jesus is asking you to care about and do more about.  Unless we act nothing will change!

What a great film!
