FA Community Bulletin – September 4, 2019

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

The Administrative Team recently had our annual working retreat.  In those meetings, we established several goals for the year. One of the more significant goals centers on staffing for next school year. We have a target of filling all of our staffing needs for the 2020-21 school year by April 1, 2020. This is something we have not done in the past; however, this would allow us to move forward in helpful ways to support incoming staff. This means we need to be busy now in recruiting – contacting, interviewing, etc. We already have some new staff lined up to join us next year, but we’ll need many more based on the numbers who will be either leaving for good or going on home assignment for a year. Please pray with us for God to guide and direct us in this process and enable us to reach this critical target.

On a lighter note, if you come on campus this week you may see some “interesting” outfits being worn in our Middle School division. This is Friendship Week for MSD, and as such, they have a theme for each day that they are supposed to dress like. Next week, it will be the High School’s turn as they will have Spirit Week, which also has special themes each day for the students to show their creative sides in their outfits.

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

TUESDAY PRAYER TIME

Come and experience the joy of praying together for our school and our kids! 7:15-8: 30 am every Tuesday morning in the Tipunan prayer room.

See you there!


“Be still, my soul: thy God doth undertake
To guide the future, as He has the past.
Thy hope, thy confidence let nothing shake;
All now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul: the waves and winds still know
His voice Who ruled them while He dwelt below”

Be still, and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
