72nd Edition: April 27, 2018

Pilgrims on the Way of Truth

Spring is FINALLY Here!

Sure, the weather may be about a month behind...but many of us can relate to that feeling! We turn the page, and it's suddenly MAY! This is when the students start marking time in unique ways: Only THREE more real Fridays. Four more Mondays. This year end certainly feels more rushed because of the shift we made with the entire school calendar. We started early, held semester 1 exams before Christmas break, and now we are finishing early as well. Ready or not - the home-stretch is here!

Tonight - possibly as you read this - our Juniors and Seniors will be heading off to their Prom. We pray that they will all have a joyful evening, and return to us healthy and happy on Monday.

And to our Junior and Senior parents...please know that we feel that worry and excitement right along with you. Teachers were shouting out one last, "Be safe! Be careful! Have fun!" as their students rushed out the door. These kids become a part of our hearts as educators. We can't thank you enough for sharing them with us every day.
