FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

What a week we’ve had! I never imagined that in my time as Head of School I would be calling off school due to volcanic ash falling from the sky! Thankfully we serve a God who was not at all surprised by any of the recent unsettling volcanic events and continues to guide and protect us.

Please know that the administration is very mindful of the ongoing tenuousness of the situation with the volcano. The safety of our students is paramount in our decision making as we look at whether or not to hold classes. This is new territory for all of us and unfortunately, there does not seem to be a very helpful official site to refer to for updates, etc. [IF you know of one, please contact me at [email protected] and let me know!]We are not assuming anything, but are looking day by day for updates to inform us in this process. We ask for your prayers for wisdom from the Lord to direct us in our decision making. We appreciate your support and cooperation. We will send out texts, Facebook and email messages if/when there is a change in the situation. In the meantime, assume we will hold classes.

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

TALENT NIGHT IS THIS SATURDAY!

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for a whimsical night-time experience in Cirque du Foi (Talent Night 2020)! 

Tickets for our show will be available at the Business Office, in tables set up in front of the high school office during HS lunch, at the ESD world map area right after school, and at the Box Office before the show on January 18. Ticket prices are as follows: P200 for adults and P150 for students.

The Juniors are also offering a dinner of pulled pork, rice/bun, coleslaw, and a drink of P150 for ESD students and P190 for MSD, HSD, and adults. You may pre-order your dinner at the ticket tables, not the Business Office, to guarantee your choice between rice or buns.

On se voit là-bas (see you there)!

~The Juniors


For the beauty of the earth,

For the beauty of the skies,

For the love which from our birth

Over and around us lies”

 

  The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers

Psalm 24:1-2
