Week of March 22 - 26

Dear Parents & Students,
We are in our final quarter of the school year.  Where did the time go?  We need to be on guard that spring fever, senioritis, or just plain laziness doesn’t set in as we round the final turn to the end of this school year.  It is easy to let the warm weather (?), the impending summer vacation, graduation, or our sin nature to influence us to slack off on our efforts to learn and to teach.  It is important to finish strong by doing our best right up until May 13th; whether you are a principal, a teacher, a student, or a parent.  Let’s all work hard to make the most of these last two months of school!

In Christ,
Mrs. Young

“And as for you, brothers, never tire of doing what is right.”  2 Thessalonians 3:13
