My name is Jackie Sturgess and I am the 7th and 8th grade combined classroom teacher. Our students receive instruction in Lutheran Doctrine (lead by a Pastor), English (grammar & writing), Literature, Vocabulary, Science (Life, Earth, or Physical depending on the year), American History, and Pre-Algebra (7th grade) and Algebra (8th grade). Along with academic courses, students also have Spanish, Art, Physical Education, Handbells, Computer classes, and band, which is optional.
Students in grades K - 8 meet twice a week for Computer classes. Here they learn basic computer skills, keyboarding, coding, and Microsoft Office. Students in the 7th/8th grade also use Chromebooks in the classroom to complete, or do research for, assignments in a variety of subjects. In using the Chromebooks, they are also becoming familiar with G-Suite, Google Classroom, and other online programs.
Beyond the academics, I strive to instill in my students the unconditional love of Jesus and the forgiveness of sin. My prayer is that they will grow to be kind, compassionate, generous, forgiving people.
