The Lutheran Junior Honor Association (LJHA) LEA designed LJHA for Lutheran schools to recognize students who exercise leadership, servanthood, and discipleship, while excelling at academics and to foster these qualities through service projects and other activities. More detailed information is available here. Fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students in LJHA-chartered schools are eligible.

Certainly on your minds… Where China’s Crackdown Leaves the Hong Kong Church (Morgan Lee in CT).

About the children… Through Kids’ Eyes: Virus Outbreak Brings Sadness, Fear, Joy (Martha Irvine in AP NEWS/Accomplished Teacher).

Global education… Thinking Globally in Schools is Essential Right Now (Nuzhat Uthmani in tes/ASCD Global Edition).

Summer devotions… You have access to the new Gone Fishing series. However, unless you enjoy fishing—even if it’s only in your dreams nowadays—you may not find the devotions relatable. They have nothing to do with education—like getting away from the job (in a boat) and leaving your cell phone behind. Catch it here. If you would like to tackle the new Summer Excursions devotional series instead of or in addition to Gone Fishing, hook up with Say, Dad, Remember the Time…?

The Lutheran Education Digital Futures & Learning Project—an LEA initiative—has completed its first sessions. Seventeen schools from 15 states, Canada, and Vietnam participated in the first workshop led by Dr. Bernard Bull. Each participating school gained a deeper understanding of current challenges and opportunities, a greater awareness of digital learning, and future possibilities. Each developed a school-specific vision for digital learning and a plan to make that vision a reality over the next 6–12 months. Watch for a whitepaper that summarizes lessons from this pilot phase of the project and additional resources. More cohorts will be selected for the project later this summer.

GLEnet Tips will start its vacation next week. Look for the next issue early in August—unless we have some breaking news before that.
