Bless the Church reminder
Also, please remember that each CC community has a facility fee that is set by their host church. Faith Baptist would like that fee to be a free will donation. If you have not yet donated your facility fee, this is just a reminder to please do that before the end of the school year. Recommendation is $25.00 per student. I can not stress enough how absolutely incredible this church has been for us. They are very relaxed and accommodating to all of our needs. The facility is also large enough that we will be able to expand with Challenge classes over the next several years. We are also looking at the need for 2 or more campuses in and around Sioux Falls next year. When those campuses open, they will be searching for a host church. An excellent recommendation from Faith Baptist would be very helpful in the search. Please let them know how appreciative we are!

Helpful hints about predicate adjectives:
- They are adjectives - words that describe, qualify, or limit a noun.
- They closely follow a linking verb - memorize those linking verbs!
- They modify or describe the subject of the sentence.
- Question confirmation will clarify the difference between a DO, PN, & PA.... practice, practice, practice.
In this pattern, the role of the linking verb is to join two words together. It will join the subject of the sentence to a noun or pronoun that follows the verb, called the predicate nominative (PN). The PN renames or replaces the subject.
Remember a good way to test whether it is a PN or PA:
S is PA
SN Vl Aj PN
Sam is a boy.
Who is a boy? Sam, SN
What is being said about Sam? is, V
Sam is who or what? boy
Which boy? a, AJ
Can boy replace or describe Sam?
Yes, replace -boy is PN; label verb linking
Sam = boy; boy = Sam
SN Vl PA
Sam remained brave.
