A huge thanks to the class of 2019 and their advisors for putting together Talent Night this weekend. It's a lot of extra-curricular hours on top of full days, so thanks for helping to showcase the talents of our community.

Thank your for making the earthquake drill quick and successful. Since it went so well, we should not have to have another earthquake drill this school year.

Thanks to NHS for organizing the blood drive last week - and a bonus thanks to everyone else who gave blood on behalf of people they don't know.

Any Number Can Die

I hope you were all able to see the Advanced Drama play this week. It was a fun play - my kids wanted to see it multiple times - and showcased the skills of our students.

Great job, Lori and cast! And also to Dave, Jason, Glen and the rest of the crews who pulled it off.

Self-Directed Learners!

As we are focusing on our SLR for being a Self-Directed Learner this year, it was good to see you all modeling that during our inservice last week. I heard a lot of encouraging feedback about the two days, so thank you for engaging over multiple teaching practices. If you haven't yet, fill out the Learning Fair feedback form Angela sent out.

As most first season sports wind down this week, thanks to all the coaches who have put in the long hours after school and on weekends to help our student athletes develop physically, socially, and spiritually. Your effort is appreciated and it will pay off in students' lives.

Food - Tasty & Plentiful

The delicious lunch during parent teacher conferences was provided by about two dozen different high school parents. Some additional parents gave cash, and that was converted into the Starbucks gift certificates distributed before break.

It's a reminder that we serve with some pretty awesome families who invest in their children's education - by making sure we are well-fed and caffeinated. 

It took a team

Thank you to all of you this past week for:
  • helping coach your houses through Spirit Week activities
  • being flexible after classes were called off on Tuesday and we had to change schedules - again - on Wednesday and Thursday
  • cheering on our students as they competed
And another big thank you to the ExCo team for putting everything together. The number and variety of activities was great.

High School Retreat

Huge, huge thanks to Etta, Crystal and the ExCo officers for planning and pulling off High School Retreat last week. You guys are rock stars.

And thanks for all of the ways all of you individually helped make retreat possible. I want to especially thank Dennis for organizing the concert of prayer the second night. That time was really powerful for many students and prompted at least one to make a commitment to Christ. That makes it worth sleeping on thin mattresses for a few nights!
