Being a Christian can be difficult. Even more difficult is being a Christian parent. 

To help make things a little easier, this article will hopefully provide five helpful hints on how to help your child have a great start to the new school year in a way that is practical, educational, and honoring to God!

You won’t find better weather in North Carolina than what we have here in Asheville. We are far enough south to avoid the extreme winter weather you might expect in a high elevation area. Yet, being the highest city our size east of the Mississippi River does help provide a reprieve from the worst of the heat and humidity experienced by our neighbors in cities like Charlotte and Raleigh. Still, it does get hot. The mercury has climbed as high as 99-degrees in the city. 

Sometimes, you and your family need to find ways to beat the heat. In our area, there are several things you can do to cool off, often without having to retreat indoors. 

After a school year that challenged parents and students in ways we would have never anticipated, we are finally approaching summer and seeing the light at the end of the tunnel of a global pandemic. Many Asheville residents and businesses will never be the same, but we are resilient here in western North Carolina. People are bouncing back, and life is beginning to slowly return to normal. 

As parents and families reflect on the past 12 months of working from home and learning remotely, you may be evaluating everything, including school choices. Emmanuel Lutheran School's small class sizes and commitment to providing a safe and sanitary environment allowed us to maintain in-person classes throughout the year. That is just one of the reasons you might be considering the switch to a private school. 

In this article, we want to help you answer whether or not your children should go to a private school. 

It was a long winter in Asheville, but the transition to spring has been swift. The mountains surrounding our city have come alive with new growth even in the last few weeks. The weather has been mild and, for the most part, sunny, and it has been a beautiful transition.

The second semester of the school year can be especially busy for elementary and middle school students; however, it is important to make sure you get the kids outside the spring.
