I am praying that you all have a blessed CHRISTmas with your family and friends. I am looking forward to seeing you in 2019!
  

In HIS Love,

Semester 1 Final Grades: Due to Christmas Break, final grades will be made available in Aeries upon our return from break on Tuesday, January 8, 2019.  We pray this gives you an opportunity to enjoy the Christmas Break and celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Gold and Blue blocks 1-4 of Study Hall will still be held during finals week.  If students have this as a class on their schedule they should be in attendance.   Study Hall will also be open to all students looking for a place to study during open blocks.  Study Hall is located in room 207B.
