V I P REDDING ADVENTIST ACADEMY NEWSLETTER
12-21-2020
As we reflect back on 2020, I think we can all agree it has been a challenge in many different ways. We have a collective thought at RAA this year ... while COVID has limited many of our favorite things, we have decided that we will not be defined by what we cannot do, but rather what we CAN do! We sent children away for Christmas break with goodies, giggles and good reminders that being of service to others is what truly represents Christ's character. Our "12 Days of Christmas" wrapped up with kids making homemade dog biscuits and sock warmers for animals coming out of surgery, a very successful canned food drive in which we were able to deliver over 20 bags of food to Bread of Life and then making Law Enforcement Survival kits, full of little treats to say Thank You to those who keep our community safe. I am proud of our growing school and how we like to take care of those around us. Thank YOU for being a part of our support system! Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

COVID 19
RAA parents - please continue to watch your email for important school updates regarding our COVID-19 modifications. We are honored to have your children in school and will continue to keep their
