FA Community Bulletin – August 15, 2018

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Community Member,

I hope you are coping with all of the rain. I’m sure there is more to come! J We’ve already managed to have our first “rain day” of the year!  Hopefully not too many more. If you did not get the text blast letting everyone know the classes were cancelled for Monday, please contact Marion Huff in the Central office at  [email protected] and let her know so she can make sure you are added to our emergency phone list.

We hosted “Meet the Teacher” days in both Middle School and High School this week. Were you able to come in and talk with teachers?  If you have unanswered questions or things you want to know more about the school, you are always welcome to come into any of the three division offices to find out more. The staff and teachers are here to partner with you!

If you are new to our community, don’t miss the Fellowship Breakfast taking place next Tuesday, August 21 from 7:00 – 10:00 in Cadd Room 19/20.  This is sponsored by our Parent Advisory Committee (PAC) and would be a great way to meet other new families and learn more about the Faith Academy community.

Finally, from our Human Resources Office: WE NEED SUBS! But you don’t have to be a sub to volunteer!  Can you sew?  Do carpentry? Maybe you can translate between English and a foreign language?  Can you drive a bunch of kids in your big car?  Whatever you can offer in time or talent will be a great blessing to our school and well spent for the Lord.   Even if you might be available only occasionally, please let us know what skills you might have so that, as your availability permits, we can use it to benefit our students.  Let’s pull our skills together as a community and serve the Lord better together!  We would like everyone to please complete the form in this link: VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION FORM

Serving together,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

IMPORTANT REMINDERS TO PARENTS:

Enrollment Requirements

The final deadline to complete the enrollment requirements is on Friday, August 17, 2018.

The division Principals have sent an email to the families with lacking requirements.

Students with incomplete requirements will not be allowed to attend classes on Monday, August 20, 2018.

Guardianship Of Students

When a student is not living with his/her parents, or in the event of the parents’ absence for a period of time, it is required by the administrative policy that a guardian is designated for the student. The designated guardian must reside within Metro Manila and must be given written permission to act on the parents’ behalf regarding the student.

The Temporary Guardianship form must be filled UP separately for each child and submitted via online. The online form can be found on our website under the Parent’s Tab or with this link:

PAC (Parent Advisory Committee) CORNER

Greetings to All NEW Families to Faith Academy!

You are invited to a Welcome Fellowship with Q&A for all New Families on Tuesday, August 21, from 7:10 a.m to 9 a.m. in Cadd Rooms 119-120 hosted by PAC (Parent Advisory Committee).  This is an opportunity to get to know others in the Faith community (BETTER TOGETHER!).

Our school’s history and philosophy will be discussed as well as values, school culture and other matters which we don’t find specifically written in an FA handbook.  This would be a great time to clarify any concern or issues you may have. We have invited our Principals and some key staff persons to be on the panel to answer questions you may have.

August 21 is a National Holiday but it is a school day for Faith Academy.  It is also a standard Tuesday shortened day (Dismissal is at 1:30 pm) thus while your child is in class, you can opt to wait and spend the rest of the day on campus. We do hope you can join us for this welcome fellowship.

Pastries, fruits, and drinks will be served hence an RSVP would be much appreciated by August 17 for a head count.  Kindly click on this link for you to reply to New Parent Q & A ( 2018 – 2019 )

For questions, you may email us at [email protected]

We look forward to meeting and spending time with you!

SAVE THE DATE  Tuesday, August 21, from 7:10 a.m to 9 a.m.! (Cadd Rooms 119-120)

PAC Chairperson


HEARTS CONNECTED

Dear Women of FA Community

Please save Saturday, Sept 15 for our first Hearts Connected event…9am thru Noon. This will be a fun time to eat, laugh, worship and be encouraged in the Word. Make sure to invite your friends and especially those new ladies in the community. It’s a wonderful way to connect!

We really hope to see you there!


FILIPINO STAFF RECOGNITION

On August 21, Tuesday, the school community will recognize our Filipino staff who had served Faith Academy for 25 years (and more).  This comprises the present and former Filipino staff.  This event will start early morning at the flagpole area in the circle, a special ceremony in Cadd Theater at 1:10 pm and ends around 2:30 in the Meeting Hall.

Everyone is welcomed to witness this special time of honoring our long time Filipino staff .


TUESDAY PARENT’S PRAYER TIME

“Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble. But since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, our prayers do make a difference.” – Max Lucado

Come and join us as we pray for our school and our kids!

Tuesday mornings from 7:15-8:30am  in the Tipunan Prayer Room.

Hope to see you there!


 “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,

 That saved a wretch like me

I once was lost but now am found,

Was blind, but now, I see..”

 

 For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.  For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

John 1:16-17
