8th grade Parents: Your children are struggling with being honest. Many of them are copying work from each other and sharing via their phones and other technology. There is much peer pressure happening. This is their future - who they become. This Advent might be the occasion to discuss the results we see in society for those who are dishonest and help them create a plan for when "friends" encourage them from doing the right things. We all know that the good path isn't easy. Jesus said that those who follow in His footsteps will be persecuted on this earth, so this could be their opportunity to turn to goodness and God to find a way to mature into honest citizens.
Parents - please sign the planner that you have received your auction tickets to be sold.
