Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold all things are become new.

2 Corinthians 5:17

Transportation Requests

Enclosed you will find transportation request forms for those students needing bus transportation next school term. Please fill out these forms and return them to the office by May 19. If you receive a form and don’t need it, please return it to the school office along with a note stating you don’t need transportation.

Uniform Exchange

If you know that your children will grow out of their uniforms by the next school year, please send their uniforms to school. Mrs. Fox will exchange each uniform for a different size. A uniform exchange table will be available on May 25 at the awards rally.

Final Tuition Statement

In your envelope, you will find your tenth and final tuition bill. This final bill is due May 26. If you receive a white statement along with your current yellow tuition bill, the amount on the white statement is what you owe to close out the year. Having your balance at $0.00 will help us pay our bills this summer.

Teacher Appreciation Day

National Teacher Appreciation Day is Tuesday, May 9. Take this opportunity to thank your child’s teacher for all they invest in your child’s life.

Field Day

Feel free to come and watch your children compete at Field Day for K-10 on Friday, May 26. We will be starting around 9:00. You may take your children directly to West Reading Park. We expect to be finished by 12:00. Buses will not be running to take your children home. Please pick children up at West Reading Park at 12:00 or at FCS at 12:30.

Awards Rally

This year-end event will be held Thursday, May 25, at 10:30am in the gym. We encourage all students and parents to attend.

Physicals Required

Please remember to make an appointment for a physical for your children entering kindergarten, seventh, and tenth grades this fall. If you have a child entering one of these grades, you should find a physical form in your envelope.  The form must be completed by your doctor and returned to the school office before school starts in August.

Paul’s Prayer from Ephesians 1:19 – 23

I pray that you will begin to understand

the incredible greatness of his power

for us who believe him.

This is the same mighty power

that raised Christ from the dead

and seated him in the place of honor

at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. (NLT)
