FA Community Bulletin – November 13, 2019

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

If you have been on campus in the last week or so you may have noticed the addition of lanyards to the “uniform” of our employees and ex-pat staff.  The administration decided to go in this direction for many reasons.  The most salient one for our broader community has to do with safety for our students as well as for ease of identification.  With the lanyards, it is easy for the younger students to know who is an adult they can go to for help.  For visitors and parents coming on campus, it becomes an easy way to identify who officially works at the school.

Todd Eichenauer and Kichang Bae are still traveling in South Korea this week.  Please continue to pray for the Lord to bless their connections and interactions with the pastors and churches they are meeting with and for safety in their travels.

Continued prayers are needed also for our staffing needs for next year. We are making progress, but there are still many positions that need filling.  Pray for our HR department as they follow up leads and arrange interviews.  Pray for the folks we contact that God would prompt them to follow up and pursue a relationship with us. Our target remains that by April 1 we will have all of the staff for next year lined up.

Next week, on November 21 – 23, our Advanced Drama class will present the play, “The Diary of Anne Frank”.  Here is a note from the directors:  Because of the nature of the content in this show, we advise parental consideration of attendance of students younger than high school.   Seating is very limited.  The doors will close at the start of the show, late arrival will not be permitted.  No exemptions!

Serving together,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

ANGEL TREE PROJECT

Every Christmas there are children who wake up to find that they did not receive any presents. But this Christmas, you have the opportunity to make a difference in a child’s life here in the Valley Golf Community, just down the road from Faith Academy.

The Angel Tree Project provides gifts for 400 kids every Christmas season. You can be a part of this. Just go to the High School Office and pick up a tag from the Christmas Tree for what age and gender you want to buy a gift for. One tag is for one gift to one child, so don’t hesitate to take more!

All gifts are due to the High School Office by Friday, November 15th. You don’t have to have wings to be an angel!
