FA Community Bulletin – December 12, 2018

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

Two fun concerts to enjoy this week.  On Thursday night starting at 6:00 the High School Prism Concert will begin in Cadd Theater.  This is an amazing musical experience not to be missed! Rather than all of the performances taking place on the stage, groups of students perform from various places around and throughout the auditorium.  Please come and join us for this unusual and grandly celebratory event.

The Elementary Christmas Concert will start at 9:30 Friday morning.  It will also take place in Cadd Theater.  There is something magical about hearing these young voices and musicians declare the joy of Christmas through song. Come on out and join in the celebration.

I will be sending out a separate note to the community regarding the Private Drivers plan we have been discussing.  That should come out in the next few days.

May you each have a joyous time celebrating the birth of our wonderful Savior this Christmas season!

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

The Christmas program will be this Friday, December 14 at 9:30 am in Cadd Theater.

Keep your schedules available and be sure to bring family and friends as we celebrate and worship the reason for this season – Jesus!


PRISM CONCERT

Come enjoy the music of the Christmas season at the 3rd Annual Prism Concert! Music will begin at 5:30 in Cadd lobby and Tipunan courtyard.

The 90 minute “seamless“ concert will begin at 6:00 pm in Cadd Theater.

Make sure to get there early, as it has been a full house the last two years!

The Junior Class will be selling dinner from 4 pm to 5:45 pm, down in Tipunan Hall, before the Prism Concert.  The menu is Christmas Pasta (white or red?! your choice of Alfredo or Bolognese sauce), salad, bread & drink!

FROM THE HEALTH OFFICE TO MSD PARENTS

Outdoor Ed is just around the corner and it’s time to start thinking about all that needs to be done in preparation. The Health office would like to remind you that your middle school student should have a recent tetanus vaccine (within the last 5 years) before going.  We plan to give the vaccine to all the students that need them in January.  If you do NOT want us to give this vaccine to your child, please let us know by email:  [email protected].

However, our normal supplier is out of stock right now.  We will check again in January and order another brand if we need to.  But, if you have time to go to your own pedia over the Christmas break, you may find that they have stock.  It is best if they receive the Adacel (tdap – tetanus/diphtheria/pertussis) vaccine.  It contains the pertussis vaccine which is recommended for this age. If they are unable to get the Adacel vaccine, a DT (diptheria/tetanus) vaccine would be the second best option.

Please let the Health office know if your student gets the vaccine – what kind of vaccine and the date given. We can then update our records and have an accurate list for OE.

If you have any questions, let me know.

Sandy Varberg, RN


FA PARENTS’ END OF YEAR PRAYER & FELLOWSHIP

We will have a year-end Thanksgiving & Prayer Fellowship on Thursday and Friday from 7:15 to 8:30 am.

Come with your gratitude and appreciation list to CADD Room 119-120.

We made 2 schedules for everyone’s convenience. Thursday for ESD & MSD parents since HSD concert is in the evening.  Friday for MSD & HSD parents since its ESD program that day.

Come on both mornings if you can.


“A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn!
Fall on your knees, O hear the angels’ voices
Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born
O night divine, Oh night, O night divine!”

 

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, And the government shall be upon His shoulder,

and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Isaiah 9:6 (ESV)
