Boarding Opportunity: Our very own Kelvin Zhao (11th Grade) is looking for a boarding situation from Christmas Break through the end of the school year. He has been staying with his sister for the last year and a half and she will graduate from the U of I in December. He wants to live with a Christian family so that he can go to church with them every Sunday and grow more in Christ. A typical range for boarding a high school student for half a year is $3,000-$4,500.If you are interested in finding out more about Kelvin, please contact him at 9899kelvin@gmail.com

Study Tip for the Week
Encourage your children (1st-9th grade) to begin memorizing their speech meet parts early. The dinner table is a great place to practice. Start by having each child read through his selection, beginning and ending with the title and author. The next night have them recite as much as they can, reading the remainder that has not been memorized yet. By the time the speech meet comes around, the whole family will be ready to hit the stage and perform!

Cheers,

Matt Whitling
