Last Sunday's Gospel reading was about the parable of the fig tree. I could not help but be reminded of the story of the fig tree in The Stories Julian Tells. This week in classes, we will draw some parallels. Be sure to check-in with your child about what we discuss!
Next week is the last week of classes for this first session. The students will complete a writing activity and have an opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of concepts explored during this unit. The next unit will start after the Easter break. Look for more details soon!
