Enjoy Summer! 


For the students, summer vacation begins Friday. The children are excited and looking forward to warmer weather and many fun activities that you will do as a family. Does the learning stop in summer? It doesn’t have to stop for three months.
You can make many activities this summer a learning experience by putting some thought to what your child’s interests are. Reading books that meet your child’s interest can be obtained by going to the local library. Six Flags, Pizza Hut, Scholastic and others have a summer reading program in which your child can participate by signing up online.
You can help your child learn when you go to places like the zoo, the lake, or on vacation to another state. When you go to the lake, talk about the types of trees or flowers that grow nearby. You can discuss the various species of fish and how they are alike or different from one another. On vacation, use maps to show where you are traveling and have your child name places you visited. Discuss the new sites seen for the first time or what historical events or economic activities took place there.
You can have your child write about what he or she learned at the activity to keep writing skills sharp. Sending thank you letters helps in more ways than one. The ideas for summer learning are endless.
As we enter summer, the faculty wishes God’s richest blessings to you and your children! Please stay in touch with Jesus through home devotions and attending church. Relax and have fun on vacation, and help your child’s skills stay sharp through a variety of methods. All this will help your child be better prepared for next school year!

Thank You


The faculty thanks you for all your cooperation and assistance in so many ways this past school year. It was a year in which our Lord Jesus led his children closer to him through the teaching of his Word. The faculty wishes God’s blessings to all this summer. Please stay safe! And we look forward to seeing you on home visits in early August and on Wednesday, August 7, at 6 PM for registration night.

Boxes Needed


The last day of school is Thursday, May 23. We will have a full day of school.
