Dear Patriots!!


June is over, and we are well into July! I pray that all is well with you and your families and as always, I am looking forward to this school year.  I can't believe that it is only 3 weeks away.

This is our summer letter reminding you of dates to save. Please get your book fees in starting this month. A big thank you to those of you who have already gotten them in. Your first tuition payment is due August 1. These deadlines are before the Open House on Tuesday, August 12 (7 pm). Please mail these in to the school office or hand them to me at church. Those of you with Scholarships will be caught up in September when the first payout is received. Summer is a time where work is being done (transcripts/records, book orders, building maintenance, enrollment interviews, staffing, etc.) and the Lord is good as always. He has provided for us bountifully, and we trust Him to continue being faithful to us.

We will start teacher enrichment week August 3 at 9:00 am. Teachers, plan to stay till after lunch on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Please pray for our teachers as we begin planning soon. The building will be open the week before for those who want to get a jump.

Enclosed is a supply list for your child. These are items that you will need for the start of school on Thursday, August 13. These lists are also posted on our website (click on the parent info tab at the top). Thank you for the privilege of partnering with you in the education of your child. Enjoy the rest of your summer!!!!



Because of Him,
