Algebra 1 Course Outline

Week of September 1-12, 2014

Mr. John R. Wallace, Jr., Senior Administrator

 

Students:

Thank you for a great first week of school. I can tell that each student has diligently applied them self to their individual studies. This should allow each of you to get a great start to the new school year. The results are already showing themselves with great grades and really positive attitudes in class.

God’s Word tells us that we are to do all things “as unto Him.”  When we run into an area of our life- a relationship, a job, or even school work, we need to remember this command that the Lord has given to us. All that we do will bring honor to our Lord. As we do the simple and large things of life, we do them as if they were being done for Jesus Himself in both the way we do them and the outcome. He will redeem this offering by making us ready to live out His plans for our life, as we become useful for His purposes.

Congrats and a great start. Let’s keep up the great work!

Blessings! 

Mr. Wallace
