Verse of the Day: Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  Colossians 3:1

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our STUCO during the carnival last Saturday!  It was a great success!  STUCO is already thinking ahead to next year and coming up with new, fun ideas to raise money for local missions and mission trips.  Today is Spirit Day and there is a lot of spirit being displayed around here.  It is great to see students, of all ages, showing their love for their school! During the pep rally today, the students started an epic game of school-wide knock out.  It was fun!  Special thanks to our home school athletes for joining us, and to Jon Hill and Eric Rehmer, basketball coaches, for joining in on the pep rally!

Mrs. Leon is busily getting things prepared for the spring drama production.  There are still a few parent jobs open for those interested in helping out.  Mrs. Leon will need the following jobs fulfilled to help her during production season: Costume Coordinator, Gate/Concessions Coordinator, House Manager, Make Up & Hair, Sound Engineer.  If you would like to volunteer for these jobs, please email the office to sign up!
