We have been on break for just over a week now, and we are both still processing this year and the work God is doing in and through us. This is a both a hard and joyful time for us. We have had to say many goodbyes to close friends, colleagues, and students. It is also a time to reflect on the wonderful growth we see in all students- academically, emotionally and spiritually.
This year PK and middle school had a full last week of school.

Wednesday PK and 7th/8th grade went to a theme park. For PK this was a special end of the year trip, while 7th and 8th graders joined a ministry partnered with the school to spend a day together enjoying the fun of the park. Ed chaperoned the 7th and 8th graders while Sarah tried to keep up with the PKers.
Saturday we had our closing ceremonies where we presented character, academic and attendance awards. It is a fun way to celebrate the end of the year and recognize the hard work of students.
Here is a video I shared with the families. The last 30 seconds are the bloopers if you ever want to see the goofiness of my kiddos.
