Plan now to attend the Ultimate Frisbee tournament scheduled to be hosted on our own Petra sports field on Saturday, May 4. We’ll publish a schedule as soon as it’s available, but if you and/or your students have never seen the sport played, it’s worth coming out to watch this fun, fast-paced game that’s enjoyable for all ages to watch.
On April 26, Petra’s students and staff will gather together for our third and final all-school feast of the year: our Resurrection Feast. As with each Feast, we are in need of parent volunteers willing to make crockpot mashed potatoes (potatoes and recipe provided) and help set up, serve, and tear down tables and decorations afterward. Here is a schedule for the morning:
- 8:30-10:00 Set up tables, chairs, and decorations in the atrium; begin prepping feast food for servers
- 10:30-11:30 Servers arrive to finish prepping Feast food
- 11:30-12:30 Feast time food serving
- 12:30 Early dismissal from school along with tear down in the atrium
Sign up to volunteer at the front desk. Thanks!

In recent months, we’ve offered a few posts here in our Scholar’s Forum having to do with the impact and opportunity of Petra Academy’s particular brand of classical Christian education. In January, we introduced you to Petra senior Valerie Lewis and the significant impact that her time at Petra has had on her life (Educational […]
A “dramaturg” is someone whose expertise is in the literary composition and thematic elements of a play. This person works closely with the director to help in understanding the context and the major themes of the play, ensuring that the director’s vision doesn’t lose any of the author’s intention.

A few months ago, a Petra mom and I were discussing this article about classical education and the home when she started to tear up. When I asked her what was wrong, her response was genuine and heartfelt: “I read that article and thought, ‘Great! Here are just more ways I’m failing as a parent,’” she shared. […]
