School Is In

School is back in session.
It’s time to buckle down.
Time to get up early,
Paste a smile on that frown.

Learning is a privilege.
A student’s life is good.
Not every child’s so blessed.
They’d join you if they could.

You get to study math-
To add, subtract, divide.
It helps you measure things;
How tall they are or wide.

History is important.
Geography is, too.
They give you reference points.
They show you who is who.

Science is intriguing
With formulas and charts,
Or model solar systems
With all their moving parts.

English helps you say things
So others understand.
Power to change the world,
With a pen in your hand.

Be thankful you can learn.
Embrace this time to start.
Celebrate a new year.
Be sure to do your part.

Don’t take it for granted,
The chance to go to school.
It’s an awesome blessing.
To be in school is cool!


Ecclesiastes 9:10 (NIV) “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”

Christians should always give 100%. Everything we do reflects on God and His family.

Few things are more pleasing to God than the pursuit of knowledge. By learning about the world around us, we become better suited to impact the world around us. We are on a mission to turn the world’s attention back to the Creator. Education is essential.
