In This Issue:


FROM THE DEPUTY HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Community:

Faith Academy greatly appreciates the prayer covering that parents and staff are able to provide for the school community. This coming week prayers would be appreciated in the following areas:

  • For the Head of School, Mr. Tom Hardeman, continuing to attend meetings in the U.S.
  • For those high school students sitting external AP College Board exams this week.
  • For our grade eight students as they are on retreat Friday and Saturday. Pray for good closure to their middle school years and meaningful relationship building.
  • For the leadership team (the three principals, head and deputy head of school) as they have an off-campus retreat next week from Tuesday afternoon until Thursday afternoon. Pray for wise decisions, planning, and goal setting.

Please take note: Faith Academy classes will continue as normal on Monday, May 13, despite it being a National Election Day in the Philippines.

Thanks,

Peter

FROM THE REGISTRAR’S OFFICE

Dear Parents,

This is a gentle reminder to do the following before we end the school-year 2018/19:

  1. Make sure you have submitted the re-enrollment applications of your children for SY 2019/20 and have settled the $150 registration fee.
  2. Go back to children’s Faith Registration Homepage.

On Step 7 check the Enrollment Requirements box and it will show you the list of the requirements that need to be completed on or before July 24, 2019, with the exception of the High School Students taking the Athletics Physical Exam on July 31.

Your child will not be allowed to begin classes and/or will be sent home if the requirements are not complete.

You are highly encouraged to FREQUENTLY check the registration site to ensure that your submissions were successfully received by the health office and child safety team.

Note that the “Previous Bills” refers to the school fees of this current school-year. The Business office will update this by the end of May.

If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact the Registrar at [email protected]


FROM THE NURSE’S OFFICE

To those of you who are not returning to Faith Academy for the next school year:

If you would like to have your child’s immunization records for the school they will attend next school year, please send the request to the Health office ([email protected]) before May 31. Requests after that time may take longer to process so do not expect an immediate response. Be aware than many American schools require immunization records before allowing a student to attend classes. Please plan ahead!!!

Thank you,

Sandy Varberg

CAMPUS PARKING REMINDERS

It has been noted that some of our drivers are attempting to back into the slanted spots on campus. This can create a potential danger to students and other pedestrians. It can also slow down the flow of traffic on and off campus. We are asking everyone to please park facing in on all of the parking spots from the speed bump in front of Elementary on around the rest of the campus parking. It is OK to back in in the pool parking and along the road as these are not slanted spots. Thank you for your cooperation in this regard!


HIGH SCHOOL FINALE CONCERT

You are cordially invited to the High School Finale Concert featuring the high school band, choir, guitar and string ensembles on Friday, May 17 at 6:30pm. There will be refreshments sold at intermission by the freshman class and special tributes to Graduating Seniors and Departing Staff. We hope you can join us!

TUESDAY PARENT PRAYER GROUP

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness. H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

Come join us as we pray for our students, our school, and our community! 7:15-8: 30 am Tuesday mornings in the Tipunan prayer room


“Come, Thou Fount of every blessing
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace
Streams of mercy, never ceasing
Call for songs of loudest praise”

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never come to an end,

 They are new every morning;  great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 (ESV)
