This semester, our sixth graders are divided into gender-specific classes, known as Charm class for our girls, and Man-in-Demand class for our boys. This is a long standing tradition at our school that serves as a "rite of passage" for our graduating 6th graders. Our hope is that these classes will provide them with a firm foundation in Christ, as well as discuss practical topics they will face in the upcoming years.
The girls learn what it means to be a Godly woman in today's world. Some of the topics covered are inner beauty, healthy lifestyle choices, and relationships. The highlight of the class is getting to have facials during their skincare field trip! The boys learn about the character of a Godly man, covering topics such as friendships, relationships with girls, the importance of church, and making wise choices. They also learn practical hygiene tips, highlighted by a messy practice session shaving a cream-covered balloon!
We are so thankful to Leslie Dean for leading the girls, and Ryan Dean and Chris Cauthen for leading the boys.
