Happy Easter, Jurgen!

Jurgen Habermas, Europe's most influential philosopher, has spent much time considering the role of the Judaic ethic of justice and the Christian ethic of love. His conclusions are shocking, yet very encouraging.

Spirit Day!

Every year, VCS dedicates one week to a celebration of our school - Spirit Week. Inevitably, the week becomes more of an excuse to dress in crazy outfits and wear jeans each day rather than spend time discussing the good points of our school (those conversations DO happen, but not so much during this particular week!). Nevertheless, it's one of the highlights of the year and the students really get into it! This year, there was a school-wide contest to see which class out of all the K-12 classes participated the most each day by dressing up according to the theme of the day. My second graders tied for first place with the first graders - imagine that. Of course the littlest ones in the school would be the most excited about being goofy and wearing ridiculous outfits - it only makes sense. They were rewarded with an ice cream my opinion one of the best prizes ever.
Enjoy these pictures - they're just a taste of the wonderfully zany world of Vienna Christian School's Spirit Week. Go Eagles!
