Nature Communicates Redemption

“All that had been lost by yielding to Satan could be regained through Christ. This intimation also nature repeats to us. Though marred by sin, it speaks not only of creation but of redemption. Though the earth bears testimony to the curse in the evident signs of decay, it is still rich and beautiful in the tokens of life- giving power.” (Education, 27)

Wexford County Jail Bond Referendum

We need your help! We have less than one (1) week to finish collecting 2500 signatures to petition for a public vote on the jail bond issue! Please check out the document below!

Hot Lunch

This week's Hot Lunch is Pizza! Thank you, Tyler family, for providing the sides!

5K Training

We will continue to train for our May 25th 5K! Thank you for bringing your tennis shoes!

This day will be counted as a Field Day and is a make-up day for the extra snow day we needed to take this year. It will count towards students' PE grade; there will be a make-up work assignment for those who are unable to make it. We are looking forward to a fun walk/run with friends!

Update: PhysicalGenesis Surveys

Last week, information on PhysicalGenesis was sent home in student Communicators. It seems that only grades 5-11 are being asked to take this survey. Thank you for your help!

Scholarships

The Michigan Conference has established a fund to financially assist needy students at all levels of Adventist education. If you would like an application for this Scholarship Fund because you are experiencing a real financial need, please keep the following in mind:

  • There are limited funds for distribution, so please pick up and turn in your application as soon as possible.

  • Funds awarded for the 2015-2016 school year will be paid directly to the school:

    A. The student must remain enrolled to receive these funds.

    B. No funds will be released until after 2nd semester begins.

  • The notification of awarded funds will be announced as soon as possible. It is the plan to notify each applicant, and the school they are attending, on or before August 10, 2015.

  • Applications must be postmarked on or before May 13, 2015. A student letter and a grade report need to be submitted with the application.

  • Letters of recommendation need to be emailed or postmarked on or before May 13, 2015. Applications without recommendations have a lower chance of being selected. Letters should include information about the applicant’s academic performance, history, reason for need, and any other sources of assistance.
  • Applications may picked up at the Northview SDA school office.
