  • Monday, January 16, no school for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
  • The last day of the second quarter is Friday, January 20. No second quarter work will be accepted after Friday, January 20, 2023. Friday, January 20 is a half day for all students.
  • Monday, February 20, no school for President’s Day.

  • IOWA standardized testing will take place the week of 24-28. Do you best to have your children in school that week and arrive on time. Make up-test are time consuming and students miss valuable classroom instructional time during make up testing.

Mrs. Loys shared devotions with the staff today. She shared about perseverance while we wait. Sometimes it feels like God isn’t listening as we have prayed for outcomes that have not yet come to pass. But it is in the waiting that God does His best work in us: stretching our faith, learning to trust, and more dependence on God. Many times, despite the outcome, God does immeasurably more than all we can imagine.

Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! ~Ephesians 3:20-21

Have a great weekend!
