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 &
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.
