A Touchdown for Both Teams


Last week, our JV football team had the privilege to participate in one of those football games that is so special, the memories made on the field transcend the numbers on the scoreboard. It’s a long story, but it is so beautiful, we hope you will take the time to read the article that was published in the Ledger-Enquirer.  It is well worth the time. We also could not be prouder of our team and of our JV football coach, Hunter Chapman, for allowing our students to be involved in such a […]

A Letter to Our Kids

Please enjoy this letter, sent out via email to our intermediate school parents this morning. What a powerful message for our children. Dear Intermediate School Parents. Are you ready?  We are!  School begins tomorrow (7:45 will be here before we know it), and many of you may have some back to school traditions to start off the new school year.  Others may be exhausted from decorating lockers and back to school shopping and will do what you can to get everyone fed and in bed early.  A friend shared with me a post from a parenting blog (a letter written to a son from his mom), and I have paraphrased it a bit to share with you.  It is my hope that you will find a way to share it with your son or daughter as he/she gets ready to begin a new school year.  Fifth grade parents, I know you received this last year, but I would love for you to share it again.  Dear Chase, Tomorrow is a big day.  Fourth (fifth) Grade – wow!  When I was in fourth grade, there was a little boy in my class named Adam. Adam looked a little different and he wore funny clothes and sometimes he even smelled a little bit. Adam didn’t smile. Adam never did his homework. I don’t think his parents reminded him like yours do. The other kids teased Adam a lot. Whenever they did, his head […]
