Grandparent's Day next Thursday April 17th at 10:00 am
Grand[arent's Day is next Thursday, April 17th at 10:00 am. We are looking forward to hosting our grandparents and having a very special Easter program. This year's program will be held in the cafeteria and parents may make their way there to find a seat. We are asking all grandparents to come to the room of their youngest grandchild at 9:40 am, where they will walk down in a very special processional to begin the program. All grandparents and students should bring a flower to carry during the processional. 2 year olds and their grandparents will return to their room for some special activities after the processional. Please remember this is a half day dismissal for students. Briarcare will be available for those needing it.

Deut 17:19-20: ""It shall be with him and he shall read it all the days of his life, that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, by carefully observing all the words of this law and these statutes, that his heart may not be lifted up above his countrymen and that he may not turn aside from the commandment, to the right or the left, so that he and his sons may
continue long in his kingdom in the midst of Israel" (NASU).
This passage referred to the responsibility of leaders to study and rely upon the law of God as they governed. It kept them humble, centered on God, and guided their decisions so they would not stray from His path. Of course, this wasn't easy and the Israelite leaders failed many times. When they strayed, God faithfully delivered consequences for their failures.
God's advice for leaders hasn't changed! As the leader of your family, recognize your need to learn from God's Word. When we sacrifice personal study and meditation, we tend to lose our godly focus quickly, both for ourselves and for our family as well. Are consequences far behind?
Part of being a good leader is turning to your Leader for guidance every day.

Theme for the Year:
Our school-wide theme for the 2013-2014 school year is "By Grace Through Faith." Our school verse for the year is Ephesians 2:8:
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."
Students, your teachers will help you memorize this verse during the year and we will learn what it means to live a "grace-filled" life.
