We have been thrilled with the addition of Spanish Immersion this year at GHC. It has been exciting to walk the hallways and stop outside that room and hear the students already speaking in Spanish! The process has been so much fun to watch from the beginning where the students knew nothing, to right now where basic conversations are already happening and students are understanding more and more of what Señora Grisales says to them. Spanish is spoken 100% of the time when the children are in their classroom.
Each year Grand Haven Christian chooses a theme to focus on for the year. This year's theme is UNITE based on the verse from Psalm 133:1, "How good and pleasant it is when God's people live together in unity." Mr. Onderlinde recently led the school in chapel focusing on this theme. He talked about many things that can cause division among us - money, gender, religion, politics, sports teams, etc. - things that we can be passionate about but not necessarily unite around.
