The GOOD Project 2017

One of the high points for the House System during first trimester was  the completion of the GOOD Project. As you know, each morning we begin the day with a word of encouragement given by different faculty members. This year we are focusing on the Transcendentals (the Good, the True, and the Beautiful) as the unique ways in which man was created to reflect the nature of God. We fulfill our purpose as human beings to the extent we reflect God’s action/desire (Good), perception/ thought (True), and feeling/judgment (Beautiful). We took the first trimester to focus on the Good and challenged the students to create an art project that represents their understanding of the Good. They were given six panels within a frame and encouraged to use a variety of media. Your students met this challenge with wonderful results.

Below you will find the themes and panel descriptions given by each House, and images of each House’s final product.

We hope you enjoy their creativity and grasp on that which is Good!
