Welcome to Core Leadership!!!

We had a great first day and we're SO excited for all the upcoming days together!

We encourage each of you to look at the right side bar ----> and enter your email address, or your mom's email address with her permission, so you can get a heads up anytime there is a new post on this blog. This will help you stay up to date! 

There are a few important points in this post:

1- TJEd for Teens book- Each of you will need your own copy of the book Thomas Jefferson Education for Teens for this class. If you don't have it yet, be sure to get it right away. We'll be reading a chapter per month this school year (see reading schedule below). You'll each need your own copy of this book as you will be underlining things you feel are important, and there are questions that you will answer IN the book. You will be writing in your book so be sure to have your own copy.
DUE Sept 22 - Come to class this day having read Chapter 1 "Your Future" of TJEd for Teens. Be completely ready to come and participate in a great discussion! This is IMPORTANT! The quality of our progress depends on each of our preparation! This is a short chapter, and you can easily get prepared. We look forward to the awesome discussion we will have!
2- Scripture to Memorize this month: Matthew 22:36-40
Copy these verses in your truth book and memorize them.
Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

3- Optional Extra Opportunity: Would you like to take your studies to the next level? Sister Larsen has a terrific opportunity for each of you. There is an online class called "Leadership Education for Teens" that she is offering to ASA students, and the mentor's name is Ian Cox. The regular cost of this online class is $150 for the self-paced class and $300 for the live online class, but the self-paced class is being offered to ASA students for only $10!

If you're wanting to take your education to a new level and really become the scholar that you know is inside of you, this class can help you do that!
