Last week our Jerusalem house went to Village Nac and split up into three groups to complete various tasks. One group swept and mopped the kitchen and dining hall. A second group cleaned up the remnant of an occupant’s trailer that was destroyed by a fire. The last group went to trim trees and gather brush in an effort to beautify and declutter the grounds. We concluded by lighting a fire to burn all the brush we gathered. We spent the last fifteen minutes enjoying oranges and discussing biblical topics prompted by the Village’s co-founder, Constance. Our young men and ladies worked hard and with joy. We look forward to returning to Village Nac.
A BIG thanks to everyone who came to the 13th Annual BIG Serve/Eagle Campaign Kick-off last night. We hope you enjoyed hearing about the future plans for Regents Academy and our BIG Serve fundraiser goal. Thank you, Dr. Louis Markos, for sharing your passion for classical Christian education with our families. Also, thank you to everyone who helped make the event a smashing success by bringing desserts, setting up, tearing down, and much more!
The 4th grade class has been learning about The Hundred Years War, The Black Death, and Joan of Arc. They put their new knowledge to work by writing and illustrating their own books about one of the events they studied. They read them to the KPrep, Kindergarten, and 1st grade classes over the last couple of days. The younger children enjoyed hearing the stories, seeing the pictures, and getting to ask curious questions about the books and events.
Regents Academy Key Club students and Ms. Burklin graciously volunteered for the Valentine’s Day dance that the Pilots Club of Nacogdoches put on for adults with special needs. The students helped in many ways and made the night a lot of fun!
Thank you to those who helped Kindergarten celebrate the 100th Day of School by donating baby items! The Kindergarten class raised a total of 481 baby items for the Heartbeat Pregnancy Center.
We have had a great second trimester at Regents Academy and tried to provide a glimpse of it in our newsletter! Written by administrators, teachers, students, and alumni, this newsletter will keep you apprised of all the exciting things happening on campus. View the newsletter here.
5th grade hunts for fossilized shark teeth on Shark Tooth Hill, followed by a sunny beautiful day “noodle party” at Maroney Park with Nerf Games. (Noodle parties occur when the students fill up jars with noodles as a result of virtuous acts.)
Mr. V, our grammar school principal, wears many hats around Regents Academy. From shepherding the students’ hearts to taking care of our teachers and leading music time with the students, he does it all. The students and staff are very appreciative of him!
Our 2nd graders love hands-on plant biology experiments. Pictured below are the students repotting the plant they have been growing since August!
Seeking to bring great literature to life, our 3rd grade students turned their room into the magical land of Narnia and dressed up as characters from C. S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia. Lucy, the White Witch, and even the wardrobe itself were represented by our students!
