Study Smart: Sharpening Your Study Skills with Mrs. Angela Gay


May is test month at ECS, as each grade takes their annual standardized achievement tests.  With that in mind, we thought it would be a good time to talk about how to prepare for a test. The jury is still out among scientists on exactly how and why we forget certain pieces of information. However, it seems that, aside from injury or illness, the brain doesn’t necessarily “lose” information. Rather, it is a matter of it being stored correctly and/or fully committing the information to memory in the first place. If we can change the way we approach information, then we [...]

Making Math Fun with Mrs. Morse


The phrase “Math is useful for everyday life.” is often repeated to students throughout the course of their education. However, demonstrating that fact in a creative way, so as to engage students, can be a trickier task. Angela Morse, our middle school math instructor, is constantly looking for imaginative ways to do just that. Her middle school students often talk about how she helps math “make sense”, so I visited her classroom to get an inside look at how she does it! Read on to see some of the projects they have done. • Geometry: The Pythagorean Spiral Students learned about [...]

“Why we love 5th grade!” – An interview with Mrs. Turella’s fifth grade class


The other day I had the opportunity to visit Mrs. Turella's classroom to ask the students a few questions about the fifth grade. They had some great answers and were so full of joy. Here is what they had to say! ---------- ME: “Ok, guys…what do you love most about the fifth grade?” STUDENTS: “We get to go on awesome field trips! This year we went to IFly and did “Mission to Mars” at the Museum [of Flight]!” “That was fun!” “Yeah and it’s fun going with a smaller class, because we get to do more things.” “Science is really cool.

What is DEEP? – By Mrs. Dalia Ibrahim


Written by Dalia Ibrahim - Middle School Science, Pre-Algebra and DEEP Instructor What is DEEP? Depending on the age of your child, the answer to this question will vary throughout the years they attend ECS. To a kindergartner, it is a fun time once a month where the older kids play games with them that are based off the monthly chapel theme. For an upper elementary student, it is a time where they get to join a small group and discuss the chapel message again while having fun. By middle school, the definition of DEEP takes on a whole new meaning. [...]

Biblical Allegories in “A Christmas Carol” – Mr. Mike Brown


Written by ECS English and History Teacher, Mike Brown. As a child, my favorite Christmas programs included, A Charlie Brown Christmas (though we are not related), How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and Mister Magoo's Christmas Carol. As an adult, The Muppet Christmas Carol replaced the Magoo cartoon as my preferred version of Dickens' famous tale. In what has become a biennial tradition, our 7th and 8th grade English Language Arts classes recently kicked off the Christmas season by watching the superb play, A Christmas Carol, at the ACT Theatre in Seattle. In addition to greatly entertaining the students and adults who [...]

Eastside Christian’s Christmas Program by Miss Adams


Enjoy this blog post written by our Elementary Music Teacher, Miss Adams, on our upcoming Christmas performances. Curtains up, ECS…it’s show time!  That is my favorite phrase in the whole world; it always has been and always will be.  The only other one that compares is "God is good all the time, and all the time God is good!"  I love that we can say that here at ECS.  I feel so blessed that every day I get to experience all of my favorite passions in one place:  kids, teaching, and performing! The best bonus is that I get to do [...]
