COUNTDOWN TO ON-LINE AUCTION!

We’re just one week away from Veritas Christian Academy's first On-Line Auction.

As many of our long-time families know, every two years Veritas hosts a Gala complete with dinner and live and silent auctions. It traditionally has been the school's biggest fundraising event. We were two weeks out from the Rustic Garden Gala at Point Lookout Vineyards when the world shut down last Spring and gatherings of 200 people became a thing of the past. 

The challenge became "what to do with all of these wonderful items the community has donated?" The answer seemed to be virtual and therefore, the idea for a Rustic Garden On-line Auction was born.

One of the highlights of the Auction is the artwork which was done by last year’s Grammar School students. They spent months, with the assistance of moms and Art Teacher Elisa Petree, creating beautiful pieces. We’ve put together a slideshow to spark your interest. Please take a peek at what your children’s talent produced.

Next week when the Auction goes LIVE, you will be able to bid on these items as well as plenty of others - vacation homes, wine, services, tankless hot water heater, braces, skin care items. . . and more!

If you’d like to preview the student’s artwork in person it will be on display in the Nature Center Building at the following times: September 17th - 25th.
7:30-8:30 a.m.
2:30-3:45 p.m.

There are five designated parking spaces so you can get in and out easily.

FROM THE COLLEGE COUNSELOR
Socially distanced high fives!
If you have a chance to encourage a member of our senior class, please do. They have impressed us already this year with their positivity. The college application season is stressful for a number of reasons. Our seniors are doing a wonderful job of maintaining hopeful attitudes while balancing new responsibilities!

Virtual College Fair
If you are interested in learning more about a college or university, consider participating in a virtual college fair.  Here is a link to a website with dates and times. These are wonderful opportunities to "interview' a variety of colleges and universities.

PSAT
We will be administering the PSAT to the 9th, 10th and 11th grades on Wednesday, October 14th from approximately 8:00 A.M. - 12:00 p.m.
GRAMMAR SCHOOL CHAPEL

With social distancing practices in effect, we are having a virtual Chapel weekly.
