            Heart to Heart                               _
                                                    Motivating Children to Do Great Things
            We should teach obedience to our children through inspiration. Basically we need our children to fall in love with Jesus
  and His Word. A good place to start is with our Biblical heroes. Our children are looking for the real deal. They want to see it.
  Joshua is an excellent role model and leader. He was confident in God’s strength and courageous in the face of opposition.
            Joshua was committed to obeying God and the book of Joshua is about obedience. In Joshua’s final message to the
  people, he emphasized the importance of obeying God. Verse 23:11 “So be very careful to love the Lord your God, and choose
  for yourselves this day whom you will serve.” Verse 24:15 “But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord.” Joshua was
  raised up for such a time as this by the Lord. He became renown in his peoples’ hearts as he obeyed the Lord. In Joshua chapter
  3 as the priests approached the Jordan River with the Ark of the Covenant and touched their feet to the water the River receded.
  All the Israelites crossed the Jordan. Then Joshua had the priests go into the river and pick up twelve stones—one for each Tribe.
  He instructed the people to tell their children what God has done. I encourage you to do this. Recount to your children all the
  things you can think of that God has done for you...great things and small things.
            A very inspiring book has been written by two teenage brothers. Parents would do well to read it with their children.
  They are current heroes and doing great things for the Lord today. The book by Alex and Brett Harris is called, “Do Hard
  Things.” In it a standard of living is laid out for teens around the world. This standard of believing God and acting on His
  promises is profound and without precedent in today’s culture. Many teenagers are apathetic, self-centered, bored, and basically
  very lazy. Alex and Brett are on the cutting edge of what God is doing today in our youth. They have started a blog called
  Rebelution as a teenage rebellion against low expectations. Just three weeks after it was launched, it was written up by the New
  York Dailey News, the sixth largest newspaper in the United States in a feature column. These young men were home schooled
  their whole life.
            God is moving among us. Moms and Dads who decide to take up the challenge to home school are hearing a call from
  the Lord to train up their children to know the Lord God Almighty and His ways. It isn’t easy or without obstacles, but home
  schooling is being used by God to transform and influence the youth of our culture.

                                                                                                 Marilyn

                                                         How Big is Your Moral Footprint?

I attended one of my niece’s high school graduation last June. I like listening to the student’s speeches. Usually, the speakers are thankful to their
parents, teachers who have guided them along the way and, grateful for the bright future that lies before them. Except that this graduation was at a
secular high school. The speeches were awful—full of empty platitudes and funny comments about their friends and teachers. I felt that the model
for their speeches was a Jay Leno or David Letterman monologue.
This got me thinking. Of course, they couldn’t speak of anything of depth, to do so would be to offend the audience’s religious sensitivities. The
only subject for which a student can speak of with authority is—Man Made Global Warming.
It was not too along ago when character meant everything. What you did for other people was all that mattered. How self-disciplined you were
was considered the epitome of strength. But now moral uprightness is measured by how dedicated you are to recycle, what kind of car you drive or
how large is your “carbon footprint.” This must be a confusing message to send to a young person. He or she must be thinking, “the less I do the
better, I am not worth the carbon I expel, I should never have children, we are on a path of destruction.” Spend some time reading about the pagan
myths that were believed during the time of Abraham and you will see strong similarities to the secular religion of our time.
I was reading my old Boy Scout Handbook recently. No wonder the Scouts are under such attack. They actually demand moral integrity, honesty,
courage, and belief in God. The emphasis for any school and curriculum must be character development. But, to do that the school must have core
values and the belief in absolute Right and Wrong. Sadly, I see no hope for the public school system.
I don’t want to sound like Andy Rooney and end this newsletter on a negative note. You can teach your children that the most important thing in
life is to leave a huge moral footprint. Jesus Christ is our example and His life is as influential now as when He lived two-thousand years ago. Life
is about doing the right thing. When you teach your children about the Patriarchs they will learn that the direction of man’s future can pivot on the
moral choice of one person. Every life is significant. (Ps.39) and plays an important part in God’s plan of redemption.


                                                      Eighth Grade Graduation
Graduation essay—We would like all eighth graders to write a one-page essay. The topic they should write on is, “What is the
most important thing God has taught me through my homeschool experience?” Please make your essay one page long, typed,
double-spaced, in size 12 font. The essays are due to Marilyn on the first park day in May. Our student speakers will be chosen to
read their essays.
Graduation photos—We need to collect two photos of your eighth grade graduates for the graduation videos. These need to be
turned in to Marilyn on the first park day in May. Please put them in an envelope with your name on everything so that we can
return them to you.
Graduation character trait—If you have an eighth grader, you need to turn in a one-word character trait that will be read at
graduation. This can be written on a card and turned in with your photos to Marilyn.
Graduation dress code—Boys need to wear dark slacks, long-sleeved shirt and tie, jacket optional. Girls should wear dressy
dresses at the knee or longer. Sweaters must be worn over spaghetti straps.

Tuesday, May 18th. Grades K – 9th. A field trip you will not want to miss! The Getty Museum is a beautiful museum with a
wonderful collection of art. This will be a guided tour. Guided tours are taught by professional museum educators. During the
guided visit, students study a limited number of objects in depth rather than tour the entire collection. The lessons are highly
participatory. Students work in small groups and engage in discussions, writing, and role-playing. The tour will last for approx.
1hour for grades K-2 and approx. 1 hour and 15 minutes for grades 3-9. Our tour this year will be Nature in Art. The children will
be divided into small groups of 15 or fewer. PLEASE NOTE that only 1 parent per family will be permitted to chaperone the
children on their tour. While on the guided tour, parents are asked to stand in the background and just listen (we are asked not to
jump in and lead the discussions, that will be the job of the tour guides – thanks for understanding). You can bring other adults, and
they can tour the museum while you are on the guided tour and then join you after your tour is finished. When you sign-up, please
give the grades of your children and if any extra, non-chaperone adults will be attending. Also, please note that no backpacks,
umbrellas, markers, food, water, gum or STROLLERS are allowed in the galleries. After touring in the groups, you are then
free to explore the museum for as long as you like. Please note that when you arrive at the parking structure you will need to give
the attendant our group confirmation number (see directions below).
TIME: Please arrive on time. The museum has a tight schedule and they are unable to wait for latecomers. Please arrive at 10:30
am to park in the parking structure. Take the elevator up to the T1 level and we will meet there. PLEASE DO NOT
IMMEDIATELY TAKE THE TRAM UP TO THE MUSEUM WHEN YOU ARRIVE. Please check-in first and wait with the
group for our departure time. Our tour will begin at 11:30 am. Our scheduled picnic lunch is from 10:45am – 11:15 am in the
picnic area. Please bring brown bag lunches. Once we are finished eating we will board the tram around 11:15 am to go up to the
museum (if you need to return anything to your car before boarding the tram, you will need to do so before 11:15 am).
COST: $2.00 per person (kids and adults – both chaperones and non-chaperones). Please make your check payable to Center for
Creative Learning (CCL) and write in memo area “Getty”. Send your check to Marilyn Stephens at 124 N. Armel Drive, Covina,
CA 91722. You can also pay with cash at Friday School or Park Days, as long as it is in an envelope and marked “Getty”. Parking
is on a reserved basis and we are allotted a limited number of spaces. So, if possible, we need to carpool. Parking is free.
COORDINATOR: Please contact Denise Kross at (909) 949-7057 or kd_kross@yahoo.com on or before Wednesday, May 5th.
This field trip usually fills up fast, so don’t wait until May to sign-up.

June 17 – 19 and 24 - 26. Mark your calendars and plan to attend a performance (or two!) of CATS at Biola Youth Theatre. This
Broadway hit, composed by Andrew Lloyd Weber and based on the poems of T.S. Eliot, tells the story of the Jellicle tribe of cats
and their purpose. At the Jellicle ball, the cats await the announcement by Old Deuteronomy of the cat chosen to be reborn into a
new life on the Heaviside Layer. Conflict arises when Macavity, the elusive master criminal, enters the scene and instigates his evil
plot to capture Old Deuteronomy. Cats such as Munkustrap, Bustopher Jones, Mr. Mistoffelees, the Rum Tug Tugger, and more
interact to unfold Macavity’s mischief in this colorful and engaging musical that will bring a smile to your face and send you home
signing. Tickets may now be purchased on-line at http://youth.biola.edu/theatre/tickets. Ticket prices range from $12 to $22,
depending on your choice of location in the auditorium. So just go to the website, select your seats; make your payment using a
debit card, Master Card, Visa or Discover Card; and print your tickets. (As a general rule, tickets are no longer available for
purchase over the phone. This option is available for special cases only, i.e., those without computers, wheelchair access,
certificates, etc. Patrons that are wheelchair bound must call the office to make their reservations. Wheelchair availability is

ASB Leadership:
This full year class will be a hands-on, interactive class for 9th -12th grade students to set the foundation for Western Christian PSP’s
Associated Student Body (ASB) program. (In traditional schools, ASB involves students planning and leading events such as spirit
rallies, dances, service projects, etc). Our version will involve the students gaining leadership skills in much the same way, except
with service projects and activities that are conducive to homeschooling. The students will be learning about needed character traits
for godly leadership and ways to develop these traits in their lives. Students will plan and implement their ideas in a variety of
settings through Western Christian and outside service projects.

Bible: Apologetics
This class will be a high school level Apologetics class. I am currently looking at the curriculum, so I don’t know what that will be
yet. I will choose a solid curriculum that will help our teens face the challenges of standing for Truth. This apologetics class will
show that their faith is both relevant and credible, and give them confidence to stand with conviction. Within this class, we will
discuss the following topics: How do you know God is real?, Is there evidence for a Creator?, The case for the Bible, the case for
Jesus, as well as, the case for and against Christianity (dealing with skeptics). And of course we will discuss what absolute Truth is
and how it needs to encompass our entire life.

 This is a presentation of Algebra as an exercise in stewardship of creation, developing thinking skills and Christ-likeness . . . wow! Chapter 1
dives right into factoring polynomials, binomials, and trinomials, assuming a pretty strong mastery. Text moves through linear equations and
inequalities, linear relations, quadratic equations and functions, graphing, linear programming, radicals and exponential functions and equations,
imaginary and other complex numbers, rational expressions and equations, trigonometry, and matrix algebra. Students will learn concepts in class,
then complete daily assignments at home. Daily homework assignments will be corrected by student or parent. Unit tests will be sent home, to be

CONSUMER MATH (Grades 11-12)
Text: Consumer Math (2nd edition) BJU Press softback ISBN# 1-57924-892-6
   (2005 publish date)                 teacher's ISBN# 1-57924-893-4
This is a full year, high school level course - a God-centered, Scripturally-based approach to stewardship, and the financial transactions that are
encountered in every-day grown-up real life. Based on the five essential principles for the consumer: 1) plan ahead 2) shop for bargains 3) maintain
the value of your belongings 4) know when to borrow, and 5) keep accurate financial records.
Will cover such things as income and tax deductions, budgeting, personal banking, borrowing money, transportation costs/investments ( buying and
maintaining a car), food costs ad budgeting strategies, clothing costs and budgeting strategies, housing costs and budgeting (including home
purchases and maintenance), life and health insurance, income taxes (including completion of the basic tax forms), and vacation planning. (whew!)
These are BASIC LIFE SKILLS that everyone needs, and few, at this time in their life (or ever) are given adequate instruction on! Students will
learn concepts in class, then complete daily assignments at home. Unit tests will be sent home, to be administered by a parent or instructor, and
brought back to the next class session. TEACHER’S EDITION REQUIRED -- Parent(s) welcome and encouraged, but not required, to accompany
students to class, in order to support study during the week (or to learn alongside their student!). Parents or students will correct the daily work.
Math concepts will be basic, but there’s quite a bit of it!! -- at least completion of a Pre-Algebra class would be wise. Ratios, Percentages, basic
equation solving, and measurements (including conversions) will be COVERED, but a basic knowledge would be good . . . This is a great math
option for the student who is NOT strong in math skills, but needs to get the required classes in for graduation, as WELL as being a terrific life-
skills course for ANYONE, including the mathematically gifted :-) Recommended for students who are seniors, especially before they “head out
into the world”.

This is a full year course. Will cover skills required to proceed into High School Algebra, and students completing it will be WELL
PREPARED for Algebra 1.
**I get asked often, which math should my Jr Higher be doing?” If your student does a decent job (80% average) on basic
mathematics, especially multiplication & division, and maybe ok on fractions, he/she should take Pre-Algebra. The current
“fashionable” trend in education these days (public and private) is that students should take Algebra I in 8th grade, which would
mean Pre-Alg in 7th. This works for some, and is (in my opinion) a GRAVE mistake for a lot of others! According to Bob Jones,
this is an 8th grade curriculum.
This class is available, as well, to High School students who require additional work on the basics!
Call me if you need to talk about any of this!
 Starts right out working with equations, covering properties of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Will move into
decimals, integers, multiples, factors, fractions, equations and inequalities, ratio, proportion, percentages, geometry and graphing.
Emphasis through entire text is on equations and solving them, using all the mathematical concepts introduced. These basic skills
would be prerequisite for an Algebra course. Students will learn concepts in class, then complete daily assignments at home. Daily
homework to be corrected by parent and/or student. Tests will be sent home, to be administered by a parent or homeschooling
teacher, and brought back to the next class session. TEACHER’S

Course Description: The first semester is a survey course where the students will learn about various photographers, their styles, and the motivation for their art.
The students will be shooting assignments using those photographers’ styles. We will learn photography basics, then Portraiture, Landscape, Nature and
Documentary styles will be explored. There is also a Research Paper due and a Final Exam given based on lectures. At the end of this course, each student will be a
more proficient photographer, with a better artistic eye and the ability to transfer what they see in a 3-dimensional world into a 2-dimensional medium. The second
semester deals with alternative processes. The students will learn creative and unusual ways to use the medium of photography. We will be creating images using
Sun Printing, Color Transfer Printing,making a lamp using the students own images as well as other processes. The survey course is a prerequisite for the
Alternative Processes class. If you have taken the Survey course with me before, you are eligible.
