School News 

We are into our first full week of school, and it has been awesome. It is so fun having everyone back. 2018-2019 is going to be a fantastic year!  The building has been quieter the last few days while our Middle School students have been gone on their retreat to Woodlands.   We hope that they all had a great time of fellowship and team building while away. We are also thankful for their safe return this afternoon.
