  • Head of School Update: Friday, February 1, 2019

    Dear JH Classical Academy Families, 

    A new friend, a retired US Navy officer who has been extra-ordinarily kind to JH Classical Academy, told me I must read The Art of War by Sun Tzu. Within days, a long-time mentor was explaining a tactical concept to me and referenced Sun Tzu’s strategies of warfare. Clearly I needed to purchase this book and become better equipped for the battles we face! Perhaps I could learn something from an expert on physical warfare and apply those principles to spiritual warfare?

    The Art of War
     is one of the world’s most influential books on military strategy. Written well over two thousand years ago in ancient China, its relevance has been reconfirmed by commanders in every century. Sun Tzu avoids the particular and takes the high ground to provide general insights, emphasizing the tricky and devious nature of war.  Of utmost importance is knowing your enemy, his plans, forms, and dispositions.  “Know your enemy and know yourself, and fight a hundred battles without danger,” Sun Tzu observed. “Know yourself but not your enemy, and win one battle but lose another.”

  • Spelling Bee 2019

    The Scripps Howard National Spelling Bee was inaugurated in 1925 to help students master spelling, learn vocabulary, and improve their command of the English language. It is now a three-day event televised on ESPN with a $40,000 prize.
     
    The National Spelling Bee uses the Merriam-Webster's dictionary as its official guide. The "Webster" of the title is the American lexicographer Noah Webster. A contemporary of George Washington and Benjamin Franklin, Webster started out life as a schoolteacher and then a lawyer. He was not successful at either profession.
