Semester one is officially in the books and semester two is already underway; unbelievably, we are over half-way through this school year! Shakespeare said that time is “very short for those who celebrate,” and truly this year has been a celebration of the amazing things God does in the lives of our students and in our school.

What are some recent things we can celebrate?

We can celebrate the end of a great semester and the conclusion of our semester one Finals.

We can celebrate our winter sports seasons as our teams head into the playoffs.

We can celebrate an amazing Young Woman’s Conference that was held in our Chapel: created, organized, and run by some or our senior high school ladies.

We can celebrate the survival of another snow season (hopefully it’s over); thanks to Mr. Wright and his early morning crew for providing the cleanest parking lots, driveways, and sidewalks in the Pacific Northwest!

The celebration can continue with the conclusion of a fantastic Holy Grail event that demonstrated the remarkable school spirit of our students. Many hours were spent preparing creative decorations, cheers, and an impressively choreographed dance; on the night of the event it all came together in an amazing event; our athletes played fiercely, and our fans cheered ferociously. We are so proud of how they represented our school: positively, passionately, and purposefully reflecting Christ.

Students set up for the Holy Grail game.
Students spent lunches practicing the Holy Grail dance.

And most recently, we can celebrate an amazing FBLA conference where we sent a dozen of our Future Business Leaders of America to compete and bring home almost two dozen trophies!

This month we can look forward to more celebrations: Open House (2/11), Spiritual Emphasis Week (2/18-21), Senior off-campus ministries (starting 2/19), and basketball and wrestling playoffs. It seems with so many more opportunities to celebrate this winter, it will be Spring in no time at all!

We continue to value your prayers and your partnerships as we seek God’s wisdom to provide biblical, vibrant, and relational experiences for our students. God bless you.
