Building Addition Update
by Pastor Micheal

The rough sketches have been submitted to several architects for their consideration and their proposals. Early in August an architect will be chosen and they will begin working on drawings. 

In the meantime members of the finance committee are working with members of the major improvements team on details of establishing a capital campaign.  

While the amount of $2.5 million is a significant investment for Campion, God has provided to date sufficient funds to begin with an architect. August will answer many of the questions and we look forward to sharing more in the September newsletter.

                                           "To Know Him.... To Show Him"
by Don Reeder,  Campion Academy Principal

Jesus is the Master Teacher and Campion seeks to follow His example of teaching. Mark 3:7 tells that Jesus first spent time with His disciples. They got to know Him. Once the relationship was there, then Jesus sent them out to minister.
 
Our desire for each student at Campion is that they will get to know Jesus. Eternal life is knowing Him, (John 17:3).   Once the relationship is there, then they will go out to minister.
Campion's tag line this year is: "To Know Him......To Show Him."
 
Our chaplain is already incorporating this tag line into the spiritual programming of our school. We are focusing the first semester on the "To Know Him" part and then "To Show Him" will be the focus of the second semester. Please pray for our students. We desire them to know Jesus and when they do they will get closer to Him as they serve Him.
 
We are pleased that our new chaplain, Rob Carlson, and family have moved in and are getting ready for the new year. Rob's wife, Liz, will be our school nurse. Also, our new girls' dean, Melissa Mekelburg is here with her husband Arlen. We welcome back Ken Albertsen to help us teach algebra.
 
You may notice some interesting baskets around campus. Those baskets are parts of the new Disc Golf Course. We look forward to many fun times with our students participating in Disc Golf. The course was funded by the class gifts of 2014 and 2016.

Dear Friends of HMS Richards School,

So many events happened at the end of last school year. Surely it had to slow down for a couple months. Maybe through hiking, camping, or even a vacation, you have been able spend some quality time together. HMS Richards ended the school year with 71 students. That is more students than there have have been for at least 12 or 13 years. HMS has felt God's blessings in so many ways over the years and our numbers represent some of the blessings! This year the classrooms will be full! We are planning for 75-80 students for school year 2016-2017. Our hope and need is to hire another teacher to teach 3rd and 4th grades for the school year 2017-2018. That will give us no more than two grades per teacher.

Also, God has blessed financially. We are operating with no debt! We say thanks to the many supporters who sit in the Campion Church pews.

Several improvements are happening at HMS this summer. Most of the visible improvements are in conjunction with becoming a licensed preschool provider. Licensing will make it possible to accommodate the full prekindergarten and kindergarten program next year. We expect to have 15 students plus a waiting list for this school year. Our hope is that the preschool program will grow into its own building in 2 or 3 years. Miranda Gomez is the preschool director for this coming year. She has worked tirelessly to get the required classes, and worked with different state departments. So far the physical plant requirements are not huge but necessary. One of the main outside improvements is the chain link fence installed around the playground.

Another improvement at HMS will be our community involvement through a few more projects with project-based learning (PBL). Stay tuned to see how that develops in each classroom. We are excited to take a turn to become more 21st century learning inclusive! Along this line we are also trying to make available for use at least one device, IPad and/or computer, for each student in grades 1-8. We are still in need of some funding to allow this to happen.

Also, to remain balanced, and because it is part of who we are as a school, we will be more intentional about spending time learning in nature. We are so blessed to be situated on a campus with endless opportunities for outdoor education. Some of our PBL projects will go hand-in-hand with outdoor education.

As we move forward, we also have some needs that require talent, money, and/or time. Please look at the list and contact HMS if you are willing and able to help with anything listed below:

   1. Refrigerator

   2. Overhead projector

   3. Round tables

   4. Handyman misc.

   5. Grounds upkeep maintenance

   6. Funding for IPads (about $7000 more needed)


Thank you, church family, for your dedication indicated by involvement, financial commitment, and prayer for HMS and each student represented!

Blessings,
Davin Hammond. Principal of HMS Richards Elementary

All About People
In Memory
Anna Mae Williams
 
Anna Mae went to sleep early Sabbath morning, July 23, 2016. She was born  January 15, 1920, in San Salvador where her parents were missionaries. She had to come home to the U.S. to learn English. Because she was fluent in Spanish, she taught it at Campion Academy from 1994 to 2000 and  lived in the house just to the south of where the Helms live.

Her husband, Harold M. Williams, was an evangelist/preacher. She was an elementary school teacher most of her life.

She is survived by her children Harold, Al, and Betty and many family members.

There will be a memorial service on Friday, August 5, at 10 am.
