No School: Friday, April 14th and Spring Break April 17th – 21st.

Track and Field: The high school boys and girls teams both got off to a great start this year. In the 1st meet, Abby Michael broke the school discus record and teammate Alicia Tucker broke the old discus record. Abby and Alicia have taken 1st and 2nd in the discus against all 15 teams they have competed against so far. The girls 4×800 team of Hannah Marambio, Abby Michael, Rilla Samsell and Emily Boehler broke the school record by a whopping 37 seconds, thanks to the strong run by Hannah Marambio. Matt Hott started the season off by taking 2nd place in the high jump, at the Clear Spring Meet, competing against 10 schools. The boys team has had too many personal records to mention in this article. Thanks to all those who came out and supported our teams.

Putt-A-Thon Kickoff: It’s Putt Putt time! It’s our 3rd Annual Putt-A-Thon! Information was sent home in mail bags on Tuesday. We are excited to announce that this will be an Alumni Sponsored Event again this year. Cody Eckenrode has graciously agreed to sponsor the event again. We are also opening the event to other alumni to sponsor a T-sign. For $100 an alumnus can put their name on a T-sign with their graduating year or in memory of someone. We are looking forward to another great event this year! Last year we raised $28,000! We have set a goal of $30,000. You can check out our event page at http://www.faithchristianacademy.myevent.com/
