Notes from Mrs. Burns

We are excited to announce that the Director for Accreditation through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) visited Morning Star last week and has nominated us for accreditation! This is an important step in the right direction for our school. For more information on accreditation, visit the ACSI Accreditation website.


We began the process of accreditation last year with the completion of a self-study and implementation of improvement goals in several areas. To complete the process, we will be asking for input from all stakeholders as we seek to continue to improve the services we provide here at MSA. We ask that you support our continued efforts by completing surveys and possibly serving on subcommittees in the near future.


If all goes well, we should have a team site visit the middle of October of next year and a nomination will be presented to the accreditation board the following month. We ask for your continued support and prayers during this process.

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane

The award-winning author of Because of Winn-Dixie and The National Ambassador for Young People's Literature launches the extraordinary pilgrimage of Edward, a beautiful, much-loved toy rabbit who loves only himself. When he is ripped from the arms of his doting young owner and lost, Edward finds that his breakable heart can learn to love, lose, and love again. This stunning, highly theatrical play became an immediate must-see hit following its premiere and is sure to go down in history as a family classic with your family being among its first audiences.
