The North American Division roll-out of our new inquiry-based science series is almost here! Schools can enter to win a digital camera by submitting photos, video clips, or testimonials involving students in inquiry-based lab activities in their classrooms. Selected submissions will be used in the By Design Science program. The timeline for such submissions extends until April 2012. Additional information is posted at nadeducation.org.
The Step Up for Students publication recently featured a third-grade student at our James E. Sampson Memorial School (JES) in Fort Pierce who had tried three different schools–public and private–before meeting with success. Jacob Whaley had “mediocre grades,””feared for his safety,” and “things were just not clicking for him” before enrolling at JES, reported Step Up. Once settled into the Adventist school his attitude improved, he began singing solos, and his “testing scores improved dramatically.” Read the complete story here: JES student.
It is with great excitement that NAD Pathfinder Ministries introduces The Pathfinder Bible Experience, a team challenge that focuses on immersion in the Word of God. Four levels of play will culminate in an official NAD Pathfinder event on Sabbath, April 21, 2012, at the General Conference headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland.
A full day of activities is planned, including Sabbath morning service, with guest speaker, Dan Jackson, NAD President.
The books of Mark and First Samuel are the subjects of this year’s experience, along with supplemental information from the SDA Bible Commentary.
