Happy 100 RHLS! Tomorrow, February 5th, marks 100 days of school for our 2018-2019 year!
2018-2019 School Theme
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Welcome to February, and the heart of the school year. This is a great time of year as everything is in full swing. We are celebrating the 100th Day of School on Tuesday, February 5th. Students are well on their way into learning new concepts and mastering those from previous years. This is a great time of the school year to recognize the growth that each student has made so far, and how exciting it is to be able to work with the many gifts and talents with which each student has been blessed.
We have a full calendar of exciting events. This week we are hosting the His Little Feet International Children’s Choir and celebrating our Top Teachers in OC and School Heroes at the special Awards and Recognition Ceremony at Bowers Museum. Our Science Olympics Team is competing at the annual UCI Science Olympiad this weekend. Next Friday we are celebrating Grandparents and Very Important People (VIP) at our Patriotic event, prior to the President’s Day Holiday on Monday, February 18th. All of this as we work our way towards the end of the second trimester on Friday, March 1st.
March will bring our first annual Dinner & Live Auction Gala at The Center Club on Friday, March 15th. Thanks to all of the amazing Parent Teacher Fellowship (PTF) volunteers who are working so hard to make this event and our entire RHLS community ‘Shine’ for all to see. Please plan to participate in this event in some form (attend, bid, donate, or volunteer).
I am excitedly looking forward to the spring, and the upcoming 2019-2020 school year with this amazing community of gifted teachers, dedicated staff, and supportive parents who all work tirelessly in partnership on a daily basis for a top notch Christian education for the children here at Red Hill Lutheran School .
