Back to School for Riverview Christian Academy
With special attention to Nevada-Utah Conference school reopening guidelines, Riverview Christian Academy (RCA) in Reno, Nev., started in-person instruction on August 17th. The school gave a warm welcome to their new 5th-8th grade teaching principal, Mr. Glenn Bentjen. They also gave a big thank you shout out to local Pastor Damon Washington for helping with the school’s new website, and to parents and volunteers who came to the school in the weeks prior to opening to help beautify the facility! RCA is excited to spend another year nurturing and empowering their students.

Thunderbird Christian Elementary Bible Class Assignments Spark Creativity
Towards the end of last school year, Thunderbird Christian Elementary adapted their Bible class assignments for students studying at home. During the first two weeks of sheltering-in-place, students in the second grade were asked to act out any part of the story of Moses, take a picture, and send it to their teacher. “I was completely impressed with costumes and clip art, and the involvement of family members in this activity,” said their teacher, Teresa Greene. Though separated by distance, students were able to engage with Bible stories in creative ways, and also created opportunities for families to get involved.
