Daring Greatly in Faith, Academics, & Service for SMCS
Great to see y'all today!
We had an anonymous donor give us a check for $6,000 to cover all of our Orchestra costs. God is good.
I am going to keep this newsletter very short so you can focus on the September Challenge Below---I have received NONE. Including myself so I am going to make 2 good calls home tomorrow.
September Challenge: Building Relationships #GoodNewsCalls!
Take pictures/video of yourself or the student calling home and email my way.
FABULOUS Prizes coming your way!! Like duty free lunch or dismissal or other fun things.
Admin will be participating too!
How do I make a positive call home? Why!?!?!
Because Jesus would do it. No answer? Leave a VM!
