Class of 2019 Meet Us Monday: Reagan B.

We are now just over three weeks from Graduation for the ILS Class of 2019! It is hard to believe that the year is so quickly nearing its end, but we hope that you are enjoying our look back with our 8th graders as they reflect on both their final year at ILS as well as the years they have spent learning and growing together. This week, we continue our "Meet Us Monday" series with another member of our ILS Class of 2019, and as always, we hope you enjoy!

Class of 2019 Meet Us Monday: Lucas S.

We hope you are enjoying our Class of 2019 “Meet Us Mondays” series as we hear from our 8th graders in their own words their favorite ILS memories and traditions, words of wisdom they remember from their teachers, highlights from their 8th grade year, and where they’ll be heading to high school in the fall. It is hard to believe that we’re just a month out from the end of the school year, and it is even harder to believe these students will soon be graduating. We truly appreciate our Class of 2019 taking the time to reflect on their time at ILS and share some great memories with us all here on the blog!

What We're Reading (May edition)...

It is hard to believe that we have already begun the last full month of the school year and are sharing our next to last edition of "What we're reading..." for the 2018-2019 school year!

As we do throughout the year, our feature includes a wide variety of articles and sermons that we have found to be interesting. This month, we explore education, a look at summer screen time for kids, vocation, black holes, history and duty. We conclude with sharing Pastor Esget’s sermon from Easter 2019.

Have you read (or written!) anything recently that you think we and other ILS families may enjoy? We always welcome you to share any articles or blogs with use to consider including in future blog features.
