We wanted to bring back one of our first blog posts written by Mrs. Sarah Harper our Middle School principal. Starting a new school, coming into middle school, or returning after a whole summer off can be tough! Middle isn't easy but here are some tips that can ease the transition.
The first week of February marked a new tradition for Faith Lutheran Middle School and High School. The school celebrated its first annual African American Celebration. The theme was, “We’ve Come This Far by Faith”.
Students today can seem more involved, well-rounded, and engaged then generations before. The result: BUSY teenagers. What can we do to support and mentor them as life gets stressful?
The trouble with middle school is that it is full of middle schoolers! Yes, middle school can be a time of awkwardness and self-doubt but it can also be a wonderful time of transformation toward independence. The amount of change, development and growth that happens during middle school is just as much as it was from birth to age three! Navigating this can be challenging for both teens and parents.
