PASSING THE BATON

Mrs. Powers passed the baton to Mrs. Bordo who begins her new role as Wexford Campus Principal in June. 

“Just as Paul encouraged Timothy to continue the work of the ministry, we encourage Mrs. Bordo in her new role at Eden and we acknowledge Mrs. Powers and the great finish of this season in her life,” remarked Mr. Hughes.

II Timothy 4:5-8

We are grateful for God’s faithful provision for Eden Christian Academy and offer our support and prayers for Mrs. Bordo.

Berkeley Hills News
A MESSAGE FROM MRS. HYLAND

Dear Berkeley Hills families,

Thank you Mr. Reichert for presenting the Easter message to Berkeley Hills students and staff. 

Mr. Reichert demonstrated how Jesus was wrapped in cloth when He died and how He broke free from that cloth to join His Father in Heaven. He told us how Jesus saved us from sin and then taught us how to pray for each other . The presence of the Holy Spirit was surely in chapel with us.

I hope and pray that each and every family had a wonderful Easter break.  He has risen, praise be to God!

He is not here; he has risen! Luke 24:6 (NIV)

April 26 through May 3, students in first through sixth grades will be taking  achievement tests .  Based on endorsement by the Association of Christian Schools International, Eden is using the Terra Nova, Third Edition test.  

Below are some helpful tips for parents to help overcome any anxiety during testing week:
  • Pray with your child every morning
  • Develop and maintain a routine schedule
  • Be sure to get a good night’s sleep
  • Eat a healthy breakfast and avoid snacks that are high in sugar
  • Allow for down time to unwind


Mrs. Hyland
Berkeley Hills Principal
LEARNING THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD AT EDEN
Kindergarten students deepened their faith and understanding with a hands-on Easter lesson making resurrection rolls in class.

They learned that Christ’s body (represented with a marshmallow) was anointed with oil (melted butter) and spices and herbs (cinnamon and sugar). His body was wrapped in white cloths (represented by a crescent roll) and then Jesus was placed in a tomb (the oven).

And, on the third day His body was no longer in the tomb; He rose from the dead! When the rolls came out of the oven and were opened, they were “empty” just like the empty tomb . Students celebrated this wonderful news and remembered all that Jesus endured for them as they enjoyed their special snack.
