Message from Principal Barnhouse

Dear Faith Families,

The Fourth of July has passed and we are well into summer...it feels like it is flying by! I hope your family has found time to enjoy summer, taking a break from some regular routines!

While still weeks away, it is time to begin looking forward to a new school year. Your classroom educators will be reaching out soon to set up home visits, we have upcoming dates to put on your fall calendars, and August is just around the corner. What an exciting time to be a part of #OurFaithFamily!

As we look toward the beginning of a new year, I pray you find time in the remaining weeks to slow down, spend time as a family, and get into God’s Word! Enjoy the remainder of summer!

Retirement: Wow! It hardly seems possible to say the word retirement, but here I am ready to embark on a new adventure in my life. Retirement is certainly bittersweet. I love the ministry here at Touching Hearts/Faith and have so many wonderful memories. So many families have touched my heart and life I can’t even begin to name them all. I want to use this last newsletter to encourage families with just a few words.

  1. Go to God in prayer for grace and wisdom….sometimes hourly.
  2. Focus on your child’s strengths..build them up.
  3. Stay calm and in control. 
  4. Share God’s word in your home.
  5. Express love daily in your words and actions.

There is no perfect combination to develop that perfect child. Just remember that God made your child and loves them so much he sent His Son to die on the cross.

From My Heart!
Mrs. Schultz
