"But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord." Luke 2:10-11
 
SCS Robotics Team, The Rusty Pipes
The Rusty Pipes had their first round qualifier for the FIRST Lego League robotics competition on Dec. 2. They have qualified to move on to the second round qualifiers in January! CONGRATULATIONS!
 
Guest speaker, Mr. Montgomery, gave the fifth and sixth graders an insightful and engaging presentation on fractals. They are pictured here with the beginnings of their own fractal-in-the-making as each student makes a portion of the Sierpenski pyramid this year.
 
“Howdy Folks, this is Big Tex.” The fourth through sixth graders attended the State Fair Bonanza in the art room after completing a State Fair scavenger hunt that included drawing Big Tex. The students were treated to ice cream, Texas-shaped nachos, Dr. Pepper candy, cotton candy, and prizes.
Pictured above are the “Best of Show” winners from each class.
 
The fourth grade class is studying Texas history. They visited Austin in November, where they toured the Capitol and the Bob Bullock History Museum. 
 
Entering into the Christmas season, what better way to celebrate the coming of our Savior and Messiah than by meditating on the gospel story? For children, storytelling is often best with illustrations. If you are or someone you know is looking for a unique and meaningful Christmas gift (perhaps even for Scofield Christian School!), consider a one-of-a-kind option.
This series of original art works tells the Gospel allegorically in “the grand narrative,” four major themes: creation, fall, redemption, and renewal. The lion represents our God and the sheep represent Man, His creation whom He shepherds, loves, and saves. The artist, Jesse Skidmore, just moved to Dallas from doing ministry in Germany and her husband is studying at Dallas Theological Seminary. She is assisting in 3K and in the front office.
Each of the four 3 by 4 foot illustrations is already matted in beige and framed in a dark brown wood, complete with hanging wire mounting on the back.
Selling the set for $1600 total.
Please contact Jesse Skidmore at jesseblytheskidmore@gmail.com with any questions.
 
Creation
Gestures are affectionate in this composition. The Lion and His sheep walk together in the green of Eden. The Lion’s open mouth breathes His creation and life into being. One sheep gazes at us, responsible for the choice to be faced which will affect our very nature.

Genesis 1:31 “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”

Genesis 2:16-17 “And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.”
Fall
Poses are pained by brokenness in this composition. The Lion contorted face roars in His wrath against sin. The sheep, soiled, have turned away from Him to pursue their own way. A serpent enslaves their affections. A red field foreshadows His wrath which must be satisfied and His death demand which must be paid.

Gen 3:14-15 “And the Lord God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

Isaiah 53:6 “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Redemption
Postures in this composition are wearied. The Lion works His will in His sheep, cleansing one from its sin filth and calling the other to return to Him. The sheep being redeemed bows its head, unable to help itself. The other cannot resist the call, his face is turned and  foot is raised in the act of following the Lion’s call. He has paid the death penalty for their rebellion––as the scar on His heel from the serpent shows, but is alive again––both justice and mercy satisfied in His loving rescue. The serpent is crushed. From the Lion’s mouth comes rebirth. A blue field signifies relief and peace.

Isaiah 53:4-5 “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Isaiah 9:6 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Renewal
Gestures are relaxed and lighthearted in this composition. The Lion, having restored His sheep to Himself, is in right relationship again with them who, being radiantly purified, enjoy eternal life in His presence. Their direct nestling with Him speaks of His tangible incarnation and their new, glorified bodies in the gold of His new Kingdom. The serpent is no longer in the picture.

John 3:4 “Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Revelation 12:10 “And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.”

John 17:3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

Titus 1:2 “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised befor
e the world began”

Water Wise Garden Tour
Thanks to all who came and helped! We had around 50 people come through and see our garden. A special thanks to Mrs. Freedman for all of the signs and decorations. It was a beautiful day!
5th and 6th at Sky Ranch
The 5th and 6th graders spent October 11-13 at Sky Ranch. They learned leadership skills and participated in several team building activities. They had fun fishing, canoeing, and even riding horses on a cattle drive. They learned to be bold and try new things like a high ropes course, zip line, and a pendulum swing. What an amazing growth experience for each one involved!
The 3K classes are learning letter F.  F is for Firefighter. They had one of the student's dad came in to talk about fire safety. He demonstrated how to put on his fireman uniform.
2nd Grade at Work!
The second grade class learned the importance of serving and loving others. Each month they make and send cards to shut-ins from Scofield Memorial Church. These men and women love receiving the thoughtful notes of encouragement. 
The Dallas Museum of Art visited second grade. Each second grader designed a shield using a mosaic paper pattern. They were Guardians of the Galaxy!

Join us for chapel every Wednesday in the Amphitheater at 8:30 a.m.!  Our focus for October is obedience. Obedience is doing what I am told right away and with a happy heart!

Mutually Assured Destruction: 10 Plays About Brothers and Sisters written by Don Zolidis is a series of sketches through time about the interactions between siblings. Join Dallas Lutheran School for this family friendly production as we examine the dreaming and scheming, the fighting and loving, the secrecy and the brutal truth that often characterize the relationships between brothers and sisters. Each scene is set in a separate decade and yet they all examine the enduring truths of what it is to have a sibling. Performances will be Friday and Saturday, October 20 and 21 beginning at 7 pm.  Tickets may be purchased in the school office or at the door the night of the performances.  For more information call 214-349-8912.
