8th Grade Retreat

The retreat used the previous night's movie experience as a springboard to sessions based on the dual themes of “be a blessing” and “stand by me”. The retreat sessions focused on preparing students for their remaining time at SFX and how they can be a blessing to those around them; as well as giving them time to reflect on their SFX journey and to prepare them for their graduation and transition to high school.    
"Stand by Me" movie night!
