     8th Grade 

 Hello!  I'm Mrs. Ervin.  I have the pleasure of teaching 7th & 8th grade students in the subject areas of math, science, technology, and art.  I also teach 6th grade art and 8th grade Bible.  I am excited to show students how God intelligently designed all of creation and makes all things work together in order that He might be glorified.  I desire that students see how what they learn in each of my classes can help them learn to know God, love God, and serve God better.  I desire for each young man/woman that walks through my classroom to leave, not only well prepared for the demands of High School, but able to appreciate all that is around them and to desire to please God in every decision they make. 

 
The school theme, "His Compassions Never Fail" is taken from Lamentations 3:22-23. It reads
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness ."
