Our theme for this year: “When I say, ‘I am a Christian…’” by Carol Wimmer talks about how we live our faith as Christians.
When I say, “I am a Christian”
I am not bragging of success,
I’m admitting that I’ve failed,
And cannot ever pay the debt.
This year, as we read this poem, let us all try to examine our actions and attitudes. As parents and educators, we are called to place our faith in God, and to draw our strength from Him.
Do you know someone who is unhappy with their current school and is looking for a new start? We have so much to offer: YOU – our wonderful, nurturing, loving community of teachers, parents, and students! Please help share this beautiful gift. Our community is alive and growing! Please continue to spread the word about our great school!
