Passion ProjectYesterday afternoon, middle school students participating in the Passion Project Elective presented their project to other students and to several panels of judges made up of staff, parents, and supporters. In this elective, each student chose a topic or area that he or she is passionate about and focused the trimester working on. Some of the areas included drawing, photography, gathering a compilation of family stories, refugees, suicide statistics in the U.S. for greater awareness, coding, comparing different religions to better dialogue with others, cooking, card tricks, monster trucks, baking, engineering, and LEGO construction. It was an amazing display of the various interests of our students and their hard and creative work.

Christmas ConcertA beautiful concert from all of our students yesterday sharing with parents, alumni, and community about Jesus being the light in our world. What a beautiful representation of God's love and presence in this Christmas season! "The whole world was lost in the darkness of sin; Like sunshine at noonday His glory shone in, Come to the Light, 'tis shining for thee; Once I was blind, but now I can see;
The Light of the world is Jesus; The Light of the world is Jesus. Sweetly the Light has dawned upon me, The Light of the world is Jesus."
