2017 Last Day

Mustangs Finish Well

“Mustangs finish well!”READ

That’s what we were reminded about in Chapel this morning, as we entered into the final month of our school year. Though the finish line is just ahead, we need to remember that we are still called to finish well.

Our Head of School, Mrs. Dusty Kinslow, referenced Colossians 3:23-24 as she encouraged our students to finish well. “Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.”

What a great verse to get us through these last few weeks! Our students were also reminded of the principles that we choose to abide by at Austin Classical School. One way we can *all* finish well is to keep these in mind, as we work heartily for the Lord.

Finish well, friends, and keep READing!

The pitter-patter of little feet…er, beaks

imageIt’s spring around our campus, and that means that life is abounding in our classrooms. We’ve got plants, fish, caterpillars, and as of Monday: baby chicks!

Our 3rd graders became proud parents of almost a dozen chicks this past week, and they couldn’t be more excited. They have been waiting patiently for weeks, and finally got to see their brood arrive.

Keeping in line with our study of the Modern Era, they chose to name these chicks after U.S. Presidents and First Ladies. Eleanor “Ellie” Roosevelt was the first to arrive, proving to be a welcome distraction during a math test.

There’s something captivating about not only watching new life, but watching it through the eyes of a child. Whether it’s the squeal of a Kindergartner as she sees her plant grow its first leaf, or the wonder of a 1st grader watching a fish dart around the aquarium, our students really are experiencing truth, goodness and beauty in their classrooms. The chicks just happen to be the loudest expression of those virtues.

Spring Break 2017

SpringBreakWhile we all love our blended schedule, which balances classroom time with homeschool days, we also love our break time! ACS Mustangs enjoy a 2 week Spring Break each year. It’s a great opportunity to re-charge, have some fun, and get ready to finish strong for our last quarter.
