Fall Week of Worship

Our Fall Week of Worship is this week. Our theme is "Worthy of our Worship". Each day Pastor Buster Swoops from Southwestern Adventist University will share more about Jesus and his character and how the different names of Jesus tell about him. If your schedule permits feel free to join us in the gymnasium each morning around 8:20 pm. Pastor Travis has sent home a letter that explains our plans for the week in more detail.

Celebrating Grandparents

We had a great time celebrating our grandparents on Friday. Each class was a part of our assembly for grandparents sharing songs, skits, poems and stories. The celebration continued into the classroom and the cafeteria where grandparents and students were invited to eat together. A special thank you goes out to the grandparent volunteers from the Keene Church who visited with students whose grandparents were unable to be with us. It was a great day with many opportunities for pictures to document these memories. Thank you Home and School for making this special day happen.

Time is running out to share your opinion.

Please take a moment to share what would work best for you. There are only three questions that will not take but a few minutes to answer. If you already have shared your opinion, thank you for your quick action. Here are the results so far.
If you look at the calendar you will notice we have P/T Conferences scheduled for Monday, October 28. We also found out that Friday of the same week we will not have school because of a teacher inservice held by the conference. So we are asking you if you would prefer to group the two days of no school together or to leave it the same. The current schedule has Monday and Friday with no school. The option we feel may better serve you is to move the Monday date and have Thursday and Friday with no school. Please share your opinion in the attached survey.
