On Nov 7, 2016, the staff attended the Christian Educator’s Convention held in St Petersburg, FL. These conferences are held each fall and offers the staff an in-service update to best meet the needs of our students. They have general sessions that everyone attends throughout the day and they also have break-out sessions where each staff member chooses a lecture they are interested in. Some of the topics this year included scoring violations, achievement testing, and object lessons. We always leave the conference with a renewed spirit and ideas to try with our students.
