FA Community Bulletin – November 7, 2018

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

I hope you enjoyed the four-day weekend as much as I did!  Relaxing and hanging out with family members and catching up on the to-do list, it was a welcome respite.  Brace yourself as that was the last break from classes until Christmas break in mid-December.  This time of the year gets a bit loopy with business and work as the second quarter wraps up at that time as well.

Don’t forget to make a point of coming to see our next school production this week with All My Sons by Arthur Miller being presented on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 8,9 & 10.  The venue for this play will be in the lower meeting hall of St. Clair Hall.  Tickets are on sale now.

In Elementary we are celebrating Filipiniana Week this week.  This is an opportunity for our youngest division to focus on and honor this amazing country we have the privilege of living and studying in as our host.  Ask your Elementary child about the things they are learning this week that help them understand or appreciate the Philippines a bit better.

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School
