A Unique Season, Reading Instruction, and Student Support

I’ve been an educator for 20 years and can honestly say that the start of this school year has been the most unusual that I have ever experienced.  It’s probably safe to say that of most of you feel that way too. Our students and teachers, with the support of our families, are managing this unique season with grace and hard work. Beginning a school year can produce all kinds of emotions including excitement, anxiety, fear, and anticipation. Working through these often complex feelings is part of the journey to maturity. Our students have navigated that twice this year, and we are really proud of their diligence in doing it well.

The Annual Fund: Where We Are and Why It Matters

Back in August, we announced our 2013-14 Annual Fund goal: $100,000 to be used for Tuition Assistance and Student Support Programs.  The Bible assures us in Proverbs 16:9 that although we make many plans, the Lord determines our steps.  Only eight months into our campaign - after a very successful SPRING FLING & FUNd RUN - we discovered that although we asked, hoped, and planned for $100,000, the Lord used over 500 donors to bring our total to just over $111,000.  It is easy for me to focus on goals, amounts, and program details but these are only a means to an end.  The Annual Fund matters because these financial resources sustain our legacy of providing Christ-centered education and passing on the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD to the next generation (Psalm 78:4).
