“My family and I just returned from a two-week trip through the Midwest to see family and friends, as well as do a few ‘vacation-like’ things along the way (Mt. Rushmore, The Badlands, The Corn Palace)…During our trip, we were not immune to the disheartening news of the recent shootings in Minnesota, Louisiana, and Texas. As we listened on the radio and visited with relatives and others, it was not difficult to pick up on the discouragement and dismay from all that has been happening nationally.” Read more of Mr. Dunham’s post in our Scholar’s Forum.
Kids run the risk of going through life in a state of slumber, preoccupied with what is not always best. They need to be awakened from beyond themselves – with engagement that is full of affection, ancient in wisdom, and relevant to their understanding. Learn more about how Petra Academy awakens love and wonder in students by attending one of our Open House Thursdays from 9-10 a.m. or 10-11 a.m. this summer. No need to RSVP; just come!

It’s quiet around here today, this first Monday after the completion of the 2015-16 school year.
