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/

Auction April 1st: We had a wonderful turnout for our auction! It was an amazing day!  Thank you to everyone who came, volunteered, spent money, and prayed! Our location was amazing. I want to thank Philip and Kelly Gardner for arranging Connections Community Church! We are still waiting on final #’s because the auctioneer had a family emergency right after the auction.  I am hoping we can meet today.  God is so good! He continues to bless our school and He provides so that we can continue to grow our ministry! Many thanks to everyone for all of your hard work.  So happy to be able to serve with each of you!

Student Council Anti-Bullying Campaign:  The Student Council will be sponsoring an Anti-Bullying Campaign this week.  They will be focusing on the effects of bullying, characteristics of bullying, dealing with a bully, minimize being a target, and how not to be a bully.  Informed students have a greater chance in making wise decisions.  Students can sponsor a pinwheel ($2 each pinwheel) that will be placed in the front lawn of the school.  All proceeds will go to the Shenandoah Women’s Shelter.  The shelter helps battered women and their children by giving them a safe place to stay and help them transition back to a life free from violence.  Students are encouraged to wear a red shirt on Thursday to make a stand against violence.

On Friday,  students will be given an Anti-Bullying Pledge card to sign and bring home.  Bullying can be seen in all areas of life.  Our goal is that by standing together we can make a difference.  Please keep this event in prayer that God will work in the lives of our students.

Library Happenings:  Parents of K-5th grader – Check your child’s mailbag for a green reading calendar.  The library is sponsoring a reading challenge for the month of April.  Please have your child color in each day that he/she reads at least 10 minutes.
