Trinity Christian School is full of presentations this week. From the adorable songs and recitations of the preschoolers and kindergarteners, to the class wills and the verses shared by the 5th and 8th graders, our students are delighting parents and guests with their end-of-year programs.
Tomorrow, the Class of 2013 will be presented with the ultimate prize of their high school career: their diploma. The 25 seniors who comprise this class have been awarded over $860,000 in scholarships and grants! The school community will honor them and their achievements during the commencement ceremony that will feature guest speaker Jeff Hostetler.
Ceremony and tradition surround these rites of passage. They are also fraught with emotion. Memories, anticipation of the next step, and reflection of the journey, all come with the territory.
God cares about each student’s story. He cares about each parent and each child. He cares about us so much that He sent His Son to make a way to present us “holy and blameless and above reproach before Him” if we continue in the faith. (Colossians 1:22)
Students in the K-3 class recited the phonetic sounds of the alphabet for their parents.
Songs, complete with hand motions, were shared with great enthusiasm by the K-4 class for their promotion program.
The smiles on these K-5 students’ faces said it all: they are ready for first grade!
5th graders drew some laughs as they bequeathed the current 4th graders everything from a special seat in the classroom to being the tallest student in the 5th grade.
Eighth grade students shared the verses of Hebrews 11 that they memorized throughout the year at their promotion program.
Congratulations to the Class of 2013 who will be honored at the Baccalaureate dinner tonight. Josh Sonoga, Men’s Chaplain of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, WVU, will address the students and their guests.
