FA Community Bulletin – April 25, 2018

In This Issue:


Dear Faith Community Member,

Congratulations to Mrs. Carol Foutz on the celebration of 25 years of service to Faith Academy! This week on Tuesday we took the day as a school community to honor and recognize this significant milestone. Thank you, Mrs. Foutz, for your heart of service. Looking forward to the next 25 years!! J

I’m told the performances of the Wizard of Oz were quite full each day and were enjoyed by all who attended. Well done Mrs. French and crew! Thanks for providing us with such an enjoyable “get-away” through the theatre.

An exciting update on our staffing. In February we needed 47 new staff members. As of today we need 25. That is pretty significant movement! We originally needed 35 teaching positions filled and that has dropped all the way down to 15. In Elementary we have all of the grade levels covered and are just looking for an additional grade 1 teacher. On top of all that there are still many other applicants currently going through the application process. Thank the Lord with me and continue to ask Him to provide for all of our staffing needs.

Serving together,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

TYCS (Trustable, Yieldable, Creative, Service provider) is a logistics company based in the Philippines, Vietnam and the USA. The children of the company’s president, Mr. Tae Hoon Kim, attended Faith Academy from 2013 to 2017. They deeply appreciate the positive influence Faith Academy had in molding their children to be more Christ-like. Hence, the Kim’s desire to continue partnering with Faith Academy in providing quality Christian education for children of missionaries.

The TYCS scholarship is to be awarded to two missionary kids (MK’s) who need financial support at Faith Academy.

“Will your anchor hold in the storms of life,

When the clouds unfold their wings of strife?

When the strong tides lift and the cables strain,

Will your anchor drift, or firm remain?”

You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word. Psalm 119:114
