 Please take a moment to review the free dress guidelines with your student.  We had several violations of our dress code today and we would like to make sure everyone is aware of the policy.  I sent home a copy with 6th graders today, but you can find it under “Forms and Admissions” on our website.  Thanks!  -Mr.Kelly

We have completed Genesis and are beginning Exodus.  Please note: the memory work on the 2nd quarter schedule is not correct – memory work for Oct. 17 will be Exodus 6:6-7.  The students have it on their tablets (ESV version).  They continue to have the option of saying it before class or filling in the blanks on Tuesdays.  We will study through Exodus much quicker than laying the foundation with Genesis.  If you have any questions, please e-mail, call or visit with me.  This is a great class!
