Geneva School of Boerne is continually seeking ways to actively involve the parents, siblings, and grandparents of students in the programs and activities of the school.

The Parents' Corner includes links to the school's weekly communications (such as iFYI and WAGs) as well as order forms (lunch, Booster Club items, etc.) and schedules.

Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, Lest we forget – lest we forget!

In a recent conversation, founder Robert Thornton was sharing about the beginnings of what has become our Benefit Weekend:  “We wanted to share with family members and others in community what was unique and remarkable about our new school.  From the beginning, Geneva was a place where the youngest of students were being trained to think and speak about really wonderful subject matter.  This is what we wanted to showcase.”  Geneva was not an ordinary school, and our Benefit would not be an ordinary fundraiser.  Sixteen years later, that is still so true.

I have to admit, though, that sometimes I forget.  As the year (or years) moves on, I can forget how incredible it is that we have kindergarten students who can discern Truth within fairy tales and eleventh graders who can articulate the epistemology of a current movie.  I take for granted that we have middle school students who bless their orthodontist’s receptionist by looking her in the eye and greeting her respectfully.  But then Benefit Weekend arrives and I am reminded in a remarkable way of the blessing of Geneva.   These evenings serve to bring the extraordinary back into focus and to provide an opportunity to celebrate with a community that I hold so dear.

This year our Benefit Weekend is May 8th and 9th, and we are mixing it up just a bit.  The Grammar School students will present on Friday, followed by the Logic and Rhetoric School students on Saturday night.  (This will allow our athletes time to get home from the State Track meet).  We will hear our students articulate Truth beautifully and perform to the glory of God.  The school leadership will also update regarding the capital campaign and present the current needs.  I hope that your family is making this evening a priority.  I know that you will be blessed.

I began this article with Rudyard Kipling’s poem, “Recessional.”  In it, he warns England in all her glory to remember the source of her power.  As we celebrate and remember the great “Benefit” of this school and community, may we do so praising Him from whom all of our blessings flow.
