Miramonte Christian School Keeps Shining for Jesus

Pacific Sunrise Central California Miramonte Christian School Keeps Shining for Jesus

Wanting to continue a quality Adventist educational program in spite of the changes brought by the pandemic, the entire school staff, board, and parents at Miramonte Christian School creatively worked together. It meant mastering Zoom and Swivl technology, offering blended learning, establishing tuition relief for families, renovating for health and safety reasons, and revamping the curriculum in PE and music.

This creativity was certainly illustrated during the Christmas season. Desiring to uplift the birth of Jesus while still following the health directives, the eighth grade class performed a drive-through living nativity (see the video on the school’s website). With their teacher, Ronna Sato, the students enacted the various scenes of Christ’s birth for over a hundred happy onlookers. In addition, the middle school students and their teacher, Yolande Melbourne, led the local Palo Alto church’s worship service via Zoom. Impressively, Doug Knecht, music teacher for both Miramonte and Mountain View Academy, recorded a multi-school track of teachers singing from home for special music. Fortunately, the seventh and eighth grade traditional Christmas play still happened in full costumes—just now on Zoom.

As Principal Richard Maloon will tell you, “Shining a light on Jesus has not dimmed—it is just glowing in different ways.”
