Easter Bunny

Easter Egg HuntThe Easter Bunny was seen today at our Easter Egg Hunt!  The students had fun looking for the hidden eggs, eating their candy and, of course, finding the gold and silver eggs!  Although we have had fun with the Easter Bunny, we have been sure to teach and celebrate the TRUE MEANING of Easter – JESUS!  Each class has studied and learned about Holy Week and the 7th & 8th grades had the Passover Meal this morning.

Dude, You Hear What I Hear?

dude-you-hear-what-i-hear-imageTONIGHT is our Christmas Play!  We are so excited and looking forward to helping others understand that Christmas isn’t about a guy named Felix Navidad, how grandma got run over by a reindeer or even the 40% shopping sales at Mondo-Mart, but about a baby named Jesus who came to save us ALL!
So, come join us tonight in the gymnasium at 6:30 P.M. and hear the TRUE meaning of Christmas! (The gym doors will open at 6:00 P.M.)

Operation Christmas Child

operation-christmas-childToday, our Pre-Kindergarten class participated in the Operation Christmas Child program.  The students brought items to be shipped in a shoe box to various parts of the world where celebrating Christmas is difficult due to poverty.  There were a total of 7 shoe boxes sent from the class.  They will keep track of which country the boxes will arrive and see where they are blessing others.

Sports’ Picnic

20160515_174427-1Yesterday, our athletes and their families met at St. Joe’s City Park for the Sports’ Picnic.  We had a cookout with hotdogs, hamburgers, watermelon and many more sweets!  It wasn’t quite warm enough for the creek, but a few brave ones (or maybe not so smart ones!) jumped in.  Coaches Susan and Jeff Methvin gave out the awards and acknowledged how well each one did.  We had several students who were consistently in the top 20 at the Cross Country meets.  And, our soccer team was undefeated with only 3 goals scored against them!  Great Job, Athletes!!!  We want to especially congratulate our 8th graders as they led us in a great year and we will miss them.  They are Karissa Coggin, Mary White, John-Paul Littrell, Jude Thomas, Kane West, and Sam Methvin.  Not pictured-Grace Forsythe.

Butterfly Release

Butterfly ReleaseWe celebrated the butterflies’ freedom on the same day as Mexico’s Cinco de Mayo!! Kindergarten enjoyed seeing caterpillars turn to butterflies!! John Michael brought in the butterfly kit to class! The kit came with caterpillars and their food. After a week they formed their cocoon and were placed in a special butterfly cage. Six days later they popped out as a butterfly. We fed them sugar water and fruit for several days and then it was time for their release!! These butterflies are called “Painted Ladies”. We had five butterflies to release on May 5th! 5/5/16. We celebrated their freedom today too!!
