Due to GENEROUS DONORS like you, we have purchased our first shuttle bus! It will be arriving on campus this week! Thank you to each of you who gave so generously towards this transportation need! We will begin using it right away, but it will take a break for a few days to get wrapped with our New Life logo. Would you consider making a donation towards this year's Ram Run to assist us in purchasing a second shuttle bus? GO RAMS!

These days are set aside each year to turn our hearts toward the Lord by singing praises, listening to teachings from guest speakers, playing games, doing crafts, doing team building exercises, and becoming better friends. All three days are NUDD days so that student and teachers can comfortably play and have fun. While our preschool and elementary students stay on campus, our middle and high schoolers will be venturing to Mar-Lu-Ridge Retreat Center and Skycroft Conference Center, respectively.

Remember that our final day of SED, Friday, October 11th, is a half day, with dismissal,

for those on campus, at 12pm.

Proceed with Caution

As a reminder, all parents, staff, visitors and student drivers are to PROCEED WITH CAUTION when entering and leaving campus. Safety is our main priority and we appreciate your assistance with driving slowly and proceeding with great caution at all times.
