Last Day of School

It is hard to believe that we are at the end of another school year! As a staff, we would like to try out something new to end the year. We decided to hand out our awards during an Assembly and to end the year by worshipping together as an Elementary department Grades 1-6. June 23 will be a half day with a noon dismissal. We will have Chapel together from 11:15-12:00. Students will go back to their classrooms to be dismissed and to pick up their report cards. There will be limited seating/standing room if any parents would like to join us!

Sad News

Just wanted to share with all of you that my Mom passed away on Friday afternoon.  She was 87 years old, and had spent the last 2 years in a care facility as she was suffering from dementia.  Two weeks ago she was diagnosed with a cancerous growth on her pancreas. The cancer had spread to her hip bone and this caused the hip to fracture.  Additionally, they discovered cancer spots on her liver and stomach, as well as 2 blood clots in her lungs. There was not much hope for recovery. Our decision as a family was to keep her comfortable and out of pain. She did not suffer and while God took her home sooner than we expected, we know she is in a better place with Jesus! We appreciate your prayers of support in this time of grieving.
