In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now,    being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

Philippians 1:4-6

Chaplain's Corner
Dear Parents,

Last Wednesday, guest speaker Adam Tarver spoke with our middle and high school students on the importance of choosing to follow Jesus. He challenged them to have a faith that impacts their surroundings instead of conforming to them.
 
There will be no high school Chapel this week as we get ready for graduation and the end of the school year. I hope you will join us in praying for all the graduating seniors we are sending out into the world as ambassadors for Jesus.

Development
Annual Fund
Dear Prince Avenue Families, Alumni, and Friends:
 
Fulfilling the vision to run a quality, Christ centered school comes at a cost, and the Annual Fund covers the difference between your student’s tuition and the actual cost to educate him or her. This year that difference is $413.53 per student. We are currently at 82.7% of our Annual Fund goal, and we need your help in giving the remaining $50,252 to close the gap for this school year. I can think of very few forms of giving that so positively and directly impact the moral training of our future leaders than giving to Christian education. As a reminder, all gifts are tax deductible.
 
The head of school letter you received last month outlined the significant number of exceptional accomplishments achieved by our students and faculty this year, and our strong student reenrollment (94.6%) and teacher retention (95.1%) reflect a healthy, thriving school community. Our meticulous budgeting and stringent eye on spending, combined with your tuition dollars and gifts to the Annual Fund, enable our school to remain debt free. Over the past two years, two nearby private schools increased tuition over $2,500, which is contrary to our objective of ensuring that a quality, Christian, preparatory school education remains within economic reach of our families. Tax deductible contributions to the Annual Fund help offset moderate tuition increases and benefit our larger school community as a whole.   
 
Please, as we close out this school year, consider a generous gift to our Annual Fund, and thank you for your continued partnership in supporting an education that welcomes Christ’s presence.  


With warm regards and in His service,
Col Seth Hathaway
Head of School
