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.
PETER PAN

Congratulations to the cast, crew, set designers, and directors on a fabulous production!

Did you know?
  • Students in grades 7-12 contributed their creative talents in music, dance, sound, lighting, painting, prop and set design to make the musical a grand success.
  • Mrs. Dornsife’s 3D Art Class designed and created the totem pole, Nana’s head, and the crocodile head!

The Upper School musical is designed to encourage student engagement and:
  • promote creativity and problem solving
  • strengthen leadership and communication skills
  • develop team work and discipline
  • build confidence and unity

Mrs. Snavely remarked, “It has been amazing to watch the Peter Pan production develop. It is a joy to work with the students and see them inspire and encourage one anothe r. Being involved in the musical provides them the opportunity to build relationships, learn about themselves, and develop character.

A MESSAGE FROM MRS. POWERS

Dear Parents,

April 26 through May 3, students in first through sixth grades will be taking the Terra Nova Third Edition  achievement tests.

At times, students become anxious about testing. This year, we will have a fun pep rally in preparation for testing week. And, on Friday, April 26, we will have “Star Wars Day” . May the “scores” be with you!

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

Yours in Christ,
Carrie A. Powers
Wexford Campus Principal
