New Year’s Message: 

WELCOME BACK & HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of our staff, students and families! What an exciting time – a new year, a new decade – so much possibility!

Thank you for the prayers offered to me and my family over the past month or so. My mother passed away peacefully on December 11th. I feel blessed to have had the time to journey with her during her final weeks and celebrate her life with family and friends. I am eager to return to school on January 6th and promote the message on our school sign, “Be the star that leads to Jesus by your words and actions.”
