AR (Accerated Reader) Store Donations needed!
It is exciting to encourage our young people to read… and the Accelerated Reader program is one way we do that. They can accumulate points, which are then used to make purchases at the “AR Store” several times each year. Would you be willing to donate some items (small toys, fun stuff)? If so, just send to the school marked “AR Store” and it will be available for purchase for the kids. Thanks in advance!
THE FIRST AR STORE WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 25!
From the Principal's Desk . . .
I was reminded recently through conversations with some great Christian friends… PRAYER is such an important thing, which we often take too lightly. Imagine the amazing things that God has in store for your family… your community… our school. He desires for us to talk with Him, listen to Him, pray unceasingly for the plans that HE has for us!
“For the prayers of a righteous man is powerful and effective!” - James 5:16
