Letter from the Principal
Wow! What a fantastic week! We have had superheroes and pirates in our building and lots of fun times! The greatest super hero of all times is Christ. He continues to save the day many times over in our lives. We are reminded this week that He is the vine, and we are the branches. If we are rooted in Him through scripture and prayer, we will grow in our relationship with Him and be fruitful. It is up to us to go forth and be helpful to others and show them how to love like Christ loves! Go make a difference in the world!

We are in need of a chairperson for this year’s parade – this can be simply organizing a group of students to march or doing a full-blown float. Applications for Parade entries are due in May so there is still time to plan. Experienced families are available to advise and donated vehicles / trailer are available.
