In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

The final week of school.  Looking back, we have seen God do incredible things over the course of this year.  Our EIIC Bill (Educational Institute of International Character) has been brought to both the House of Representatives and had a hearing in the Senate.  We were granted tax-exempt status again and subsequently given donee status by the PCNC (Philippine Council for NGO certification). We’ve also been granted a full six-year term accreditation for our academic program and a full five-year term for our boarding program (both at the maximum allowed).  Our long awaited 501(c)(3) was launched, and we had a successful first year of our LEAP program (Learning English for Academic Purposes).  All of these things proclaim loud reminders of our Provider God operating on our behalf. Thank you, Lord!

Please pray for our students and staff to finish the year strong. Pray especially for our Seniors as they not only have the pressures of completing assignments, preparing for the graduation speeches, and saying goodbye to friends who they may never see again.  They are also thinking about their future with its many uncertainties.

It has been a privilege for us to partner with the families of the Faith Academy community this year.  I am excited to see what God brings in the year ahead!

Blessing on your time away from school during our break.

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

HEALTH OFFICE REMINDER – ATHLETIC PHYSICAL EXAM

For those of you with high school students that are interested in trying out for high school sports next school year AND they have not yet participated in high school sports at Faith Academy OR they had an athletic physical exam MORE than 2 years ago:

All students who want to try out for sports in high school are REQUIRED to have an athletic physical exam done every two years. We are offering an opportunity for your student to get this exam done ON CAMPUS before tryouts begin.  It will be on the day of registration – Tuesday, July 31, from 2:30 to 5 pm.  It will be held in the Meeting Hall – the room downstairs from the Tipunan courtyard.  There will be signs to help you find your way.

This exam is done by a team of professional and qualified nurses, doctors and physical therapists.  Some students that have gotten this physical exam done off campus have paid up to P 1,750.  We are able to offer it for just P 600.  Attached is a questionnaire that needs to be filled out BEFORE coming to the exam. You will need to help your student answer questions # 10, 11 & 12.  When they come for the exam on July 31, they will need to bring this form, filled out, as well as P 600.

Many of your students had this exam done two or more years ago – it is time to have it done again! If you don’t know when they last had it done, they can either stop by the Health Services to check our list, or you can ask for that information by email.

If you want your student to take advantage of the Athletic Physical offered on campus, please email the Health Services at [email protected]  to sign them up by Friday, July 13

Remember, this physical exam needs to be done BEFORE your high school student will be allowed to try out for any sport this school year!!  Get signed up by July 13!!

If you know of any new families that may not be connected to their Faith email, please pass the word along.

REQUEST FOR HEALTH RECORDS

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 health records for the school they will attend next school year, please send the request to the health office ([email protected]) by May 30 or before.

After June 1, there will be no one in the office until July who can give you those records.

Thank you,
