A Note From Mrs. Donnell
November is ending and December is beginning! Can you believe it? As December begins everyone will be preparing for all of our Christmas celebrations and programs. As we prepare let us remind ourselves to keep our focus on the “reason for the season”.
“The angels sang because the everlasting Father had come to extend arms of redeeming grace to all who would give their hearts to Him”. Paul David Tripp
Are you ready to sing like the angels because hope is coming?

Scripture: Romans 4:1-3 “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Your relationship with God is your responsibility and it starts with the Bible.

Parents will be asked to volunteer to work the concession booth for home athletic events on specifically assigned dates. Again, after rosters are set, a list will be published for parents to assist in this endeavor. All efforts will be made so that no parent works during his/her student’s game.
