Inside Games!

Our students have been having to play inside quite a bit lately. They really enjoy playing an all time favorite game of silent ball. However, their teacher makes them switch from time to time. They also enjoy playing a game where they have to guess who is the leader. Trent really had a hard time guessing who the leader was in this round of the game. Must have been someone really SNEAKY!!!!

A Christmas Craft Day

PNA students enjoyed an afternoon of fun today. They had several crafts, listened to the story Polar Express, sipped hot chocolate, and decorated and ate their own cupcakes. They enjoyed going from session to session to see what they were going to get to do next. A special thanks goes to Mrs. Pat, Mrs. Sue, Mrs. Misty M., Mrs. Robbie, and Mrs. Misty R. for coming up with a craft or treat to share with 0ur kids. What a fun day!

A Biography of My Mom

Sara Anne-Grace

By Hannah
5th Grade Student

My sister is Sara Anne-Grace. She is three years old. She was born on April 4, 2005 in Shreveport, Louisiana. Her parents are Steve and Misty. She has one sister, Hannah Elizabeth (me), and one brother, Luke Ryan.

When she was younger, she was always sick. She also had her eyes scratched two times.

Sara likes to make messes, watch movies, and play dolls. She also likes to catch bees and play animals. She likes to eat a lot, but she is very small.

Some people would say she is very rowdy. She will always be a drama queen. Believe me she will. She screams a whole lot because of her brother Luke.

I love my sister very much. I hope she will stop making messes and screaming. Maybe she will grow up and have a good attitude.

**Last names have been omitted.

Our students were instrumental in presenting a Christmas presentation entitled "A Miracle on Main Street" since their teacher is also over the junior department. PNA students had to carry the main part of the load in the presentation. They practiced many hours during the last few weeks. Here they are practicing right before the program with some of our Junior Kids.

Two of our students, Lucas and Bentley, were wisemen! Great Job, boys.
Here they are Christmas caroling along Main Street. What a good looking group!
I can't get over what an awesome job these kids and adults did in presenting the message of Christmas! Hard work sure pays off......Keep up the good work. A special thanks goes to everyone involved in helping to make this program so awesome! There were so many who helped in so many different ways. Thanks again.


and Tyler! Both students are in the eighth grade. Look at how neat and tidy they keep their work space. Great Job, students!

A Recent Visit....

Several of our students were recently greeted by the president elect. Luke and .....
Corey were able to shake his hand. Well, they actually shook hands with.....
Trent who saved about 150 points to buy the mask from our school store. We used the mask for a skit during our banquet last year. What fun!

Turkey Art!

Chelsey enjoyed her art project today, and she really did a good job of decorating her turkey.

Here she is with Chloe and Lucas decorating their turkeys with various beans. How fun!


Maddie gave an oral book report about a non fiction book titled Pollution. She really did a good job of presenting her book report. She memorized her introduction and conclusion! She also told about her book without having to rely too much on her notecards! It is so wonderful to teach such dedicated students!

Our school took a trip to the Veteran's Home here in Bossier City last week. We went with baskets of candy, cookies, and cards to hand out to everyone.
The kids really had a good time visiting with the veterans and thanking them for all they have done for our great country. Chloe' commented on how much fun she was having as we walked through the halls of the welcoming facility.
Our students (and Sara) sang "AmeriKids" for the veterans and ended their presentation with prayer. Thanks again to all the veterans who have served our country. May God Bless the USA!

Several things I like About School!

By, Ashlyn M. 7th Grade

There are several things that I like about school. I have a lot of very nice friends. We get three breaks: one around 10:00 am, one after lunch, and one around 2:00 pm. Pilgrim Nazarene Academy is a very good school to attend. We do Bible, Math, English, Spelling, Vocabulary, Poetry, History, Literature, and Science. School starts at 8:30 AM and ends at 3:00 PM. On Fridays we get off at 12:00 PM. We have a computer to watch a video on the subject we are doing. In the mornings we put our things away, we say the pledges, we pray, and we sometimes sing. In conclusion, Pilgrim Nazarene Academy is a good school.

What do you know about Mexico and France?

Ashlan, a PNA 6th grader, gave an oral presentation about Mexico. She shared information about the flag, geographical information, and other fun facts. She chose Mexico because her Grandpa Eguia was born and raised in Mexico. Viva, Mexico!

Michael shared information about France. Michael has a special interest in France since he was priviledged to visit Paris, the capital, with his dad a few years ago.

Both 6th graders did a good job of telling about their country and creating a poster about it. Congratulations on a job well done!

Show and Tell!

Bentley is proud of his tank made from Lego blocks. He said that with the help of his dad, he was able to build it. Great job, Bentley and Dad!

The school kids were treated to a lunch of pizza. Ashlan volunteered to make homemade chocolate chip cookies for a dessert. She is proud of her finished product. Hard work sure pays off.
Chloe' also made cupcakes to share with her peers. They were also a big "hit".
The boys sure did enjoy their pizza. Their eyes were sure larger than their stomachs.
The older girls......
and the younger girls sure enjoyed their pizza also. After eating a good lunch, the students enjoyed a short break and a good Christmas program practice. What a great group of kids!

Bike Day is So MUCH fun!

PNA students enjoyed having their bikes with them at school. This is a day they look forward to each school year.
Lauran enjoyed a ride on a scooter.
Unfortunately, there are bad guys in our world. There were several at PNA on bike day. Guys like Nicholas went around robbing people of their coins! Coins were needed to purchase a drink at the nearby McDonalds ran by Chloe' and Maddie, and.... coins were necessary to buy valuable gallons of gasoline. Gasoline would help them to continue to make laps around the parking lot. Erica and Ashlan kept the gas station running smoothly.

Thankfully, the bad guys were caught and imprisoned until they could pay their own fine or someone would pay their bail. Luke was a tough jailer! He tried his best not to let ole' Aaron escape.

Our students had so much fun playing this little game that they wanted to leave their bikes at school for another day of fun. As you can see, this was a "wheely" fun day at PNA.

PS I'm sorry about the picture quality. My camera settings were all wrong, however, I think I now have them corrected.

Skunks, Skunks, Skunks....

Our fifth grade students were assigned to create a poster and an oral presentation on a mammal of their own choosing. Aaron chose to do his report on skunks since he had one when he was 4 years old. (You will notice his picture at the bottom of his poster. He is holding a baby skunk.) He shared information about the skunk's predators, prey, tracks, and where they are predominately found. His peers commented on how well he knew his report. Great Job, Aaron!

His fellow classmates did a wonderful job on their posters as well. Stay tuned for more on their presentations.

We can write in cursive!

Abby is learning to write in cursive. She wanted her picture taken in her office.
Bentley is learning to write in cursive. Bentley had his picture taken also. Thanks Abby!
Last but not least, Brian is learning to write in cursive. His office is the one with the red crayon.

If Only We Were in the 1st Grade!

Several older PNA students were a little envious of Lucas being in the 1st grade and getting to sing such fun songs. So all the of the school kids got to join in on a few minutes of real 1st grade fun....Wow! They sure had a SILLY time doing it too!

Lucas was sure proud to be joined by such a dignified group of peers! :) It sure made his activity time a lot more exciting!
