We are coming on the heels of a fantastic Gala event, and Spring Break is fast approaching! We will be capping off this week and the 9-week grading period with our Serves Day on Friday, March 10th, and are looking forward to working alongside some local organizations as they serve our greater community (see below for details).
This month, our character focus has been on the topic of FORGIVENESS. This trait is the bedrock of the gospel account, and is the pathway to receiving life through the work, life and example of Jesus who has already forgiven us of all wrongdoing and sin. With this forgiveness we are reminded that we are not just saved from our past, but we are saved to an abundant life to be found in the way of Jesus as He continues to instruct and lead. The call for each of us is to accept and receive this forgiveness, and then to mirror its offering and impact in the spaces we walk and people we encounter. We will be encouraging our students to do this very thing as a practice through our conversations this month.
Here is a quote to ponder surrounding our character skill of healthy confrontation:
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you” - Lewis B. Smedes
See below for important information pertaining to our school. There is much to celebrate here as within our community!
May we see and enjoy God's presence around us today.
Grace and peace,
Re-Enrollment for 23/24 School Year
The Re-Enrollment process can be completed online or via the paper document below. As a brief reminder, there is incentive to signup early as registration fees for next school year are currently $175/student attending through March 12th. Rates will then jump to $200/student through the duration of March, and then jump to $225/student entering into the start of April.
Again, this is an important season for our school as we seek to make preparations and decisions for next school year. Your trust and investment here is paramount to our success as a school. We look forward to seeing and working with each of you again for the 23/24 school year!
