We started school with a chapel talk by our new principal, Mr. Mitchell. He began by allowing students to ask him questions about his life (What sports do you like? Why did you come to Timothy? Are you Dutch?). The picture below summarizes his challenge to the students. He also invited students to write service ideas on the white board in his office.
On Thursday we had a chapel we do at the beginning of every year. About 10 teachers submit a picture from their summer. Four teams of students (from student council) have a contest guessing what teacher goes with what picture. The teachers then share a Scripture and how the photo related to their walk with God. The photo below is from Mr. Hartgerink from his daughter's wedding.
MIDDLE SCHOOL CHAPEL
Chapel began with an "introduce yourself to others" game with cash prizes (total value: $4). We then all crowded on the stage for the singing of some fun, camp songs led by Mr. Gesch and Mr. Wiener. Arianna read Ps. 1:1-3. Mr. W. gave a talk on the purpose of chapel using a Duncan Keith bobble head and trail mix.
