As a part of this service, there will be an opportunity for any of our students (and family members) to be baptized. If you are interested in taking part of this baptism service, please contact Mrs. Mackey and I will pass the information along to Pastor Bartels who will then contact you. There is no charge for this, of course. We would love to see some of our students be baptized during this special service. Siblings and family members are welcomed as well.
Looking ahead to REGISTRATION
5th grade parents... please be aware that there will be ONLY ONE 6th grade class and space will be limited.
