Christ in Action

  • On Friday, 18 students were awarded the Barnabas Award for being Christ-like.  These students set a Christ-like example for others.  A certificate and a Barnabas dog tag were handed out at the chapel program.  This year our monthly Barnabas students will enjoy a pizza party with our counselor, Cindy Burnsed.

  • On October 19th the Lower School students had a special treat when middle and upper grade students joined them in our first school-wide service project.  Younger students were guided by older students in the making of Christmas cards to honor First Responders. What better way to let our young ones know the importance of serving others than by example.

Did you Know?

  • The apps “Mathopolis” and “Spelling 1-2” are two of the Lower School teachers’ favorites!  
    • “Mathopolis” makes practicing those math facts fun with a firefighting game! Addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems are divided into three different levels of difficulty.  See for yourself here!
    • “Spelling 1-2” lets you enter your child’s spelling list directly into the game! There are three different games in the app that help your child review their spelling words: a word unscramble, spelling the word spoken to you, and choose the correct spelling of a word from three or four choices.  Check it out here!
