FA Community Bulletin – December 4, 2019

In This Issue:


FROM THE HEAD OF SCHOOL’S OFFICE

Dear Faith Academy Community Member,

We have experienced our first “typhoon day” for this school year…and hopefully the only one we’ll have this year.  We have built buffer days into our yearly calendar so any off days will be absorbed by that cushion without further infringement to our school calendar.

The middle school Christmas program is taking place this Thursday after school starting at 3:30 pm in Cadd Theatre. You are all invited to come and enjoy this presentation of band, vocal and guitar performances.

For the high school, this is the last week of regular classes before finals happen next week. For the entire school, this time of year is extra busy and full of additional activities and requirements.  Please pray for strength and focus for students and teachers.

Serving with you,

Tom Hardeman

Head of School

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,

But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8 (ESV)
