A Note from the Principal
Happy New Year to all of our SPCS family!
We have one semester under our belts, and we have accomplished so much this year! Spiritually, our students have been learning how to "Love God" through our weekly chapel sessions that focus on the Westminster Shorter Catechisms. We have learned that the purpose of man is "to glorify God and enjoy Him forever." We have also learned to glorify God with our words and actions. We are very blessed to have the Bible as a resource to guide us in our daily lives. We read the Bible daily in our Bible classes and are learning to live according to God's plan for us.
Our students, staff and parent have also practiced "Loving Others and Serving the World" through service in our church and community. Our second grade class has blessed residents from Rosegate by singing to them and visiting them. We hosted our annual Veterans Day program to honor our Veterans and provide them with lunch. Also in November, our students collected items and packed shoe boxes for Operation Christmas child that will go out to children around the world. In December, we collected hats and mittens to donate to our friends at the Shepherd Community Center and also presented them with a check that came from Fun Friday money and Jingle grams.
Academically, our students have been working very hard! We have continued our Meijer Accelerated Reader program this year. Our students have already read 3,000 books and are well on their way to reaching our goal by the end of the school year. Special thanks to Meijer who sponsors our program and provides prizes for every step of the way and for Chicagos and Redline who provide gift cards for our 100 and 200 point earners. They are great reading partners! Students participated in some exciting AR games before Christmas Break! Reading is so important, make sure to READ, READ, READ!
I am very proud of our students and all that they have accomplished this year. We are gearing up for our second semester. Registration for next year will be here before we know it in February! We will be having our Science Night, Art Show and Open House on February 7th. This is a great night to see all of the awesome things that are happening at SPCS. There will be a hands on science in the gym, artwork in the Gathering Place, snacks and STEM projects to see in the elementary classrooms. Bring a friend who might be looking for a school home!
Prayers for a wonderful 2018,
