Let them thank the Lord for his steadfast love,
for his wonderful works to humankind.
And let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices,
and tell of his deeds with songs of joy.

On Friday, I accepted a letter from Mr. John Hall, our Technology Coordinator and Teacher,
announcing his plans to retire at the end of this school year.
We are so grateful to Mr. Hall for bringing our Technology program into the modern era, and we hope and pray for a fulfilling and relaxing retirement!
We will begin a search for his replacement shortly.
