WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL, WILDCATS!
Seeing so many of you at the Back to School BBQ was fantastic. It was an incredible night, with fantastic weather, great company, and good food. My heartfelt thanks to all the parents who helped with the donations, grilling, and handing out all the food, drinks, set up and clean up!
Please don't forget to add your hours to the service tab in FACTS SIS.
On Monday, we remember that fateful day in 2001! None of the students were born when this tragedy happened, but I bet each one of the adults can remember where we were when we heard the terrible news. Several years later, we still feel the heaviness and anguish of that day. I am so proud of this incredible country and the selfless people in their service to others. We will never forget their sacrifices! Let us pray that God may show abundant mercy to all the families affected by that tragedy.
"Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy. Rid them out of the hand of the wicked." Psalms 82:3-4
Sincerely in Christ,
