Algebra 1 Course Outline

Week of March 9-27, 2015

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

 

Students:

                I really enjoy teaching this class and having you as my students! Your hard work inside and outside of class along with your class participation and willingness to ask questions, keep me straight at the board J, and working together, is paying huge dividends! Your grades are solid, and you are becoming more comfortable with the new material when it is presented. Great job!

            The last few weeks, the Lord has burden my heart for our older students in middle and high school. While our culture minimizes the teenage years, God does not. For teenagers that have been presented and accepted the Gospel of our Lord, He has purpose and plans. They are not just for ten or twenty years down the line. They are “now” plans for His “now” purposes.  Please think about David, Stephen, the boy with loaves and fishes, Daniel, Joseph… the list goes on through Scripture. The picture is clear. Young people who know Christ as Savior do not have a Spiritual holiday from the ages of 13-19. Rather, listen to the words of Paul in 1 Timothy 4:11-17:

11 These things command and teach. 12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. 13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.14 Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.15 Meditate upon these things; give thyself wholly to them; that thy profiting may appear to all.16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

            May the Lord bless your comings and goings as you live out your life for Jesus! I love you guys!

Blessings!

Mr. Wallace
