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
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!
