Voice of Faith December 18, 2017

Merry Christmas and many blessings to you and your family this holiday season!

Thank you from the Hudspith family:  We wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to all of the Faith families that gave their support in regards to my sister’s recent house fire. The family is so very grateful, appreciate, and beyond words that so many people have helped them in so many ways. I could have only imagined all the support and donations that flooded in from all of the families and it really shows how caring each of them are! Again- thank you for the support and donations as my niece and nephew were so excited to receive all the clothes and toys from everyone! Thanks again! The Hudspith family

Thank you from the faculty & staff:  A huge “Thank you” to all who have given an offering at the concerts for our Christmas love gift for the faculty and staff.  We also wanted to thank everyone who brought in gifts, baked goods and lunch.  We are so blessed by the generosity of all of our families!

Panda Express Lunches: There is no Panda Express this week due to high school exams.  They will be sending slips home for lunches for January 3rd.

Chick-fil-A Lunches: There is no Chick-fil-A this week due to Christmas break.  They will be sending slips home for lunches for January 4th.

Lost & Found: There are tables in the main hallway with lost and found items on them. Those items must be claimed by Wednesday, December 20th of next week. Anything left will be taken to Goodwill.

Last day of school: Wednesday, December 20 is our last day before Christmas unless there is a school closing before that day. We return from Christmas break on Tuesday, January 2.

Booster Falcon Friend Program:  Thank you everyone who has purchased a Falcon Friend Pass!  Our Level 1 has sold out.  All of the other levels are still available.

Cold Weather Reminder: As cold weather approaches, please make sure that your elementary student wears a warm jacket to school.  A sweatshirt or sweater is no longer sufficient for keeping warm at recess.

High School Exams:  December 18th – December 20th.  These days are half days for the high school students only. Monday Dismissal 12PM, Tuesday & Wednesday 10:40AM

Alumni Games: December 21st at 8:30PM in the FCA Gymnasium.  Remind your alumni to come out and secure their position on the court.  RSVP to Coach Hobbs at 304-263-0011 or email him brian.hobbs@faithchristianacademy.net.

AmazonSmile: The holidays are approaching and that means you can support our school while you are shopping for gifts, decorations, and more.  Shop for everyone on your gift list this Christmas season at smile.amazon.com/ch/55-0641484 and Amazon will donate to Faith Christian Academy.

 School Emergency Closings:  In case of inclement weather, please be advised that we do not always follow the Berkeley County Public Schools emergency closing schedule! Faith Christian Academy will always have its own announcement regarding school closings and delays.  We will place announcements in the following media:

  • School website: faithchristianacademy.net (“Quick Notes” along right side of home page)
  • Radio stations: WEPM (1340 AM) and Lite 97.5
  • Television: NBC News 25
  • E-mail: An e-mail will be sent through the Renweb data base – all parents will receive an e-mail alert
  • Phone Message: Call the school and enter extension 223 for weather related messages

Every attempt will be made to make a call by 6:00 a.m. on the morning of a cancellation or delay. If a two-hour delay is called then parents need to check back and see if a second announcement is made. Again, every attempt will be made to make a call as quickly as possible.  A two-hour delay will result in before care opening at 9:00 a.m.  On days where weather may prompt an early dismissal, please do not call the school office.  Check your email frequently when inclement weather occurs or listen for the radio announcement.  The school phone lines are needed for emergency purposes.

 Dates to remember:

  • December 18th – 20th High School Exams
  • December 21st – January 1st Christmas break
