Beginning a new yearly discipline, the secondary student body has used the first few weeks' morning gatherings, connection assemblies, and Friday afternoon events to focus on authentic faith. Staff and student leaders have led the student population in studying what God's Word says about fully living out  the Christian faith. This past Friday, students practiced applying what they are learning by brainstorming ways to live authentic faith within the walls of Lake Pointe. Then, next week, students will practice living their faith off campus through service visits to the Rock Hill Palmetto Crisis Pregnancy Center and Morning Side Nursing Home.

MAPs to new skills

October 25, 2017
By Lake Pointe News

This week launched the mini-apprenticeship program (MAP) for secondary students. Fitting into Lake Pointe’s goal to connect students to each other and to adult Christians in Christian fellowship, MAP volunteers, weather LPA staff or parents, teach a small group of student a specific skill set that they cannot learn in the classroom. These groups meet for two or three weeks and at various times throughout the semester to allow students to participate in as many MAP groups as they desire. Though the number of times these groups meet may be comparatively small, the hope of the MAP program is to help cultivate deeper, inter-generational friendships between students and adults that magnify the beauty of a diverse church body. Some of the skill sets that will be taught this semester include cake decorating, basic auto-mechanics, bread making, and camping survival skills.

The last week in June marked the beginning of these training session--which will continue up until the start of school. Throughout the week, three key sessions were held. Instructor Ali Salmon lead two section of trainings for new students and parents grades 3rd through 9th focused on the Institution for Excellence in Writing program. On Wednesday, instructor Stephanie Cutshall lead a one day training for the Singapore Math curriculum where parents and teachers alike experienced a hands-on introduction or refresher to the curriculum. Lastly, grade level supervisor Staci Jackson hosted a two day seminar on the Spell to Write to Read curriculum. Along with new parents and teachers, instructors from nearby schools and home-school parents attended this training session as they learned and practiced how to teach the various steps of the program throughout various grade levels.

Each of these training sessions will have a second session during the month of July with the same instructors. Lake Pointe uses these trainings with the aim that every family enters the fall confidently and fully prepared the upcoming school year.
