Principal Update 10-28-20
Friday, October 30 – NO SCHOOL
December 18 – NO SCHOOL – This was previously a half day.
Note that all scheduled early dismissal days for the remainder of the year will be NO SCHOOL.
I have recently submitted a letter to the Faith Assembly Board letting them know my intentions to retire at the end of the 2020-2021 school year. I have been blessed to work with so many great people over the years. It has been a joy to be involved in the lives of so many students and watch them grow and develop. God has confirmed in my heart that this decision Is right for the school and for me. I trust and believe that God has a plan for who will be the next principal. I know I will miss the staff, students and families, but it is time for me to invest in other areas of my life and have fewer responsibilities. I have been humbled and honored to be a part of this ministry for 30 years, 13 as principal.
We have much to accomplish yet this year and it is not time to say good-bye. Please continue to pray for the staff as we face the daily challenges of teaching and mentoring students.
Picture order forms went home Monday and Tuesday. The envelopes are due back by Friday, November 6th. Feel free to view all of the photos online at www.hagephotography.zenfolio.com, password is FCS2021.
Two ways to help!
We have masks available at school for students who forget to wear a mask. Our supply is getting low due to many students forgetting. Please try to remind them to bring a mask. If you know your student is prone to forget, you could donate some to the school to help replenish our supply.
Since we have experienced our first snowfall on October 26, I wanted to remind you of our cancellation protocol. The best way to get the information is to sign up for our textcaster. If you need information to sign up, please call the office and ask for a form. The information will then come directly to your phone via a text. We will also post it on our school website and Facebook page.
Parent Discretion on Snow Days
We are aware that our families travel from many different directions and some travel many miles. We understand that weather conditions and road conditions can be very different depending on where you live. Please use your own discretion. If you do not feel it is safe to travel…keep your students home.
Blue Freedom Farm Market

REMINDER ABOUT SCHOOLWORK
If students are out of school due to quarantine and are able to do their work…we encourage them to keep up through the online learning tabs and the SEESAW app.
Thank you for all your cooperation, encouragement, support and PRAYERS. We are so thankful for each of you. We are so thankful for God’s help, strength and blessing as we walk through the year, one day at a time.
Lord, you establish peace for us; all that we have accomplished you have done for us. Isaiah 26:12
