The energy and excitement in the school was quite noticeable within minutes of arriving. I soon found out that it was Grade 4-6 Option Day at Edmonton Christian Northeast School. This is a yearly event that sees parents/grandparents/community members come into the school and lead students through half day activities. Students this year were offered 20 amazing options. They chose two of them, one for the morning and one for the afternoon. Here are a few pictures of the afternoon options:
We are thankful when we challenge students to play their role in God’s story, that it is a wide and rich and varied story. Further, we are thankful that it is a story that involves a community of people finding joy in life as they share their gifts and live that story together! A huge thanks to all the gift-sharing volunteers that made this a great day.
