    Verse of the day:  The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.  Proverbs 18:10

    I hope everyone is having a restful and enjoyable summer!  Summertime is a busy season for your ACS office staff and this summer is no exception.  We are busy, busy, busy in the office creating schedules (both teacher and student), reviewing and revising handbooks, and preparing for our big Kick-Off event (Sept. 1 @ 6:30) among other things.  The school calendar is starting to fill up with volleyball games, and the soccer schedule will be added shortly.  The first day of school (Sept. 7 @ 8:00 am) will be here before we know it.  Many of you are utilizing our scheduled office hours and for that we are incredibly thankful.  Please continue to check the website on a regular basis for all the latest news.  I still plan to publish a bulletin monthly, and I update the school calendar as soon as I get notified of an addition or change to the schedule.  We would covet your prayers as we secure teachers and students for next year.  We pray and trust that the Lord will supply All our needs and bring along just the right people to serve and be served at Applewood Christian School.  I am so thankful for each and every one of you and feel blessed to be a part of the ACS family.
