What does the typical Gideon day look like?

Posted on

There are only 64 of them in a school year, but each Gideon Study Center day is full of enthusiasm for learning and delight in growing in God’s grace.   Never fear…. There is structure, of course.   Here is our daily schedule:

7:45 a.m.  Students begin to arrive, store lunches in their cubbies, and head to their first period classroom to drop off their bookbags.

8:00 a.m.  Devotions are led by Rev. Shaun Nolan.

8:20 a.m.  1st period class begins.

9:20 a.m.  2nd period class begins.

10:20 a.m. Mid-morning break allows just enough time for a snack and a quick game of Silent Speedball, 9-Square or Kickball.

10:40 a.m. 3rd period class begins.

11:40 a.m. 4th period class begins.

12:35 p.m. Lunchtime!

1:00 p.m.  5th period class begins.

2:00 p.m.  6th period class begins.

3:00 p.m.  Parents pick up their Gideon scholars. (Thursdays, Alg 2 students begin a final 45-minute class session and siblings work in study hall.)

The 2010-2011 class schedule can be viewed and downloaded here.

Gathering for chapel at the beginning of the school day.
During break, a game of 9-Square (variation on 4-Square)

Gideon Study Center students have been busy all year.  To give you an idea of what they’ve dabbled in, debated over, discussed in depth and dressed up as, more images of this year’s activities will be posted shortly.  Or you may view last year’s Day in the Life post.
