Principal’s Note:

This past Tuesday at their monthly meeting the ECS Board (and I as the Principal) continued our discussion on James K.A. Smith’s book, You Are What You Love.  This month we focused on chapter two of the book which is entitled “Learning to Read “Secular” Liturgies.”  In this chapter Smith challenges the reader with the fact that we are constantly being formed by the physical spaces and places around us.  Smith analyzed physical space and practices of the North American shopping mall and the way in which it forms you into the kingdom and worship of consumerism.  The mall is a place where one is inundated with images of happiness and success inviting you to shop for products so that you can become content people.  The ECS Board considered this analysis of the mall and thought about how the practices and physical space of Everett Christian School are formative.  At ECS our walls are covered with Bible verses, Through-lines and reading posters forming us to think that we are in a school and we value providing a quality Christ-centered education. Yet ECS also has a series of alumni pictures adorning the main hallway and cinder block walls and layers of paint on the exterior (originally built in the 1950s), all which remind us that this is not just a school, but a community with 92 years of history and traditions.

As the Board continues to study Smith’s book they will think through how ECS forms its students and staff toward a view of the kingdom.  In particular the Board hopes to consider how the physical space orients towards God’s kingdom.  In last year’s accreditation process the school community articulated that ECS has to study and analyze how our facilities can continue to provide a quality Christ-centered education.  In the next few months the Board will form a unique task force to begin working on achieving this accreditation goal.  We hope that by studying and considering the ECS facilities the ECS Board and administration can continue to orient our students to God’s kingdom.

In Christ,

Mr. Alberts
