A MESSAGE FROM MRS. POWERS

Dear Parents,

The Wexford Campus was bursting with excitement, from our precious three-year-olds to our awesome sixth graders, as we began the 2018- 2019 school year! It was a tremendous first week filled with meeting new friends, seeing old friends, bright faces, warm smiles, and hugs. I am thankful for the amazing faculty and staff that God has provided at the Wexford Campus and I know they are committed to helping your child grow academically, spiritually, emotionally, physically, and socially.

Each year at Eden, a Bible verse is prayerfully selected as the school-wide theme. Proverbs 19:21 tell us, “ Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails .” Throughout the year, we will partner with our Christian community, including parents and ministry staff from various churches in the area, as we study the verse and help each child understand that they are “Created by God and Built for a Purpose.”
 
Our weekly chapels, Thursdays from 1:30-2:10 pm, will focus on:
  • Discovering Your Life Purpose
  • Developing Skills and Talents for Your Life Purpose
  • Overcoming Obstacles in Your Life
  • Living Out Your Purpose

Please join us in prayer that each child will grow in their relationship with Christ and understand they were created for a special purpose.

In Him,
Carrie A. Powers
Wexford Campus Principal
LUNCH DROP OFF AND VISITS

If you are bringing a forgotten or special lunch for your child, please check-in at the office and drop the lunch there. We'll make sure is delivered to your child!

Parents are welcome to visit for a special lunch with their child during their assigned lunch time. After you report to the office to sign-in and pick up your child, you're welcome to eat in the front atrium of the church or on the benches outside Eden's field house and front entrance.
