Eyes on the prize
Posted on April 27, 2017
It’s crunch time. Graduation and the last day of classes are a month away. Teachers and students alike are preparing for year-end celebrations while finishing up academic material. In the midst of so much activity, it’s important to keep our eyes on the prize.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. ~ Hebrews 12:1-2
As a Christian school community, we want to look to Jesus for the strength to finish the year well. He is our prize and our reward. Teaching our students to work, play, sing, compete, perform and serve to honor Him is how we can walk out our mission day to day.

We love having parents and grandparents help with read-aloud. This grandmother has read to her grandson’s class seven times this year. That might be a new record! Thanks to all of our volunteers who help with classroom and extra-curricular activities.
