A Day in the Life...

THE WILDS
Seventh and eighth graders enjoyed an adventurous, meaningful time on our annual Spiritual Emphasis Retreat to The Wilds in North Carolina.  The Lord provided terrific weather for a variety of outdoor adventures, and many of our students responded to the truth that was shared in daily messages.  We are thankful for the opportunity to share this time away from school with our students!  Please join our middle school staff in prayer that the lessons learned at camp will come back to the students’ minds as the Holy Spirit works in their hearts.     


ON TASK

Seventh graders in Mrs. Gurak’s class recently collaborated to complete real world task cards.  The task cards required them to apply math concepts to situations they face in everyday life.  They also had to communicate effectively with one another in order to work through the problem-solving process.
FINE ARTS
The entire faculty and staff meet each Wednesday morning for a time of worship, a short message and prayer. On Wednesday, September 26, they were led in worship by seniors Sam Balty, Spencer McNeight and Trey Brown. Great job, guys!
