UPPER SCHOOL STUDENTS & THE FLEECE CONNECTION
 
On April 9, upper school students will invest their energy and compassion in a BLANKET-MAKING WORKSHOP led by Fleece Connection. Held on-campus at Mt. Nebo, this meaningful (and super-fun) hands-on event, will surely inspire students and help them on the journey to connect with their God-given potential and direction for life.

Our goal is that every student will be able to make their own blanket.
 
YOU CAN HELP REACH THE GOAL!
 
  • Shop & Drop: Buy two 2-yard lengths of fleece material* and drop the material off at the Mt. Nebo Campus main office. *Be sure to select material that would be appropriate for a man or a woman (plain, stripes, plaid, etc.)
OR
  • Donate the Cost of Material: Just CLICK HERE to donate. $25.00 covers the cost of material for one blanket. ANY DONATION AMOUNT is greatly appreciated. Fleece Connection will purchase the material and bring it to the event for an Eden student to make the blanket!

The upper school students are excited to be part of this event. And, we appreciate your generous support!

A MESSAGE FROM MRS. HYLAND

Dear Berkeley Hills,

Students were informed and entertained by a visit from magician Dan Kuniak at a school-wide assembly teaching the importance of being good stewards of the earth. 
 
With engaging magic tricks, Dan emphasized the importance of recycling, and reducing the amount of trash with reusable containers. 
 
During the assembly, Dan  made a glass disappear, created a tree out of newspaper , and most popular of all, recycled a live bird into a rabbit !
 
Ask your student what they learned.

Enjoy PHOTOS HERE and the video below!

FUN WITH TRUCKS
Last week, students explored construction vehicles for a hands-on adventure ! They were excited to climb in and on the equipment, and especially liked beeping the horn!

A big thank you to Mr. Minarik (father of Titus, grade 3) for bringing in the big equipment and answering many questions .
