Picture Retakes:  We will be doing picture retakes on Wednesday, October 31st.  If you plan to have your students picture retaken please send a note to school to their teacher.

Dress for the weather: The weather is turning colder, and students need to be properly dressed for outdoor recess.  We will get the students outside for fresh air as much as possible.

No School November 2, 2018:  November 2nd is a teacher work day and there will be no school.

No School November 6, 2018:  Election Day!  Go and VOTE!

FCA 29th Annual Auction:  YOU MUST HAVE A TICKET TO ATTEND THE AUCTION. Don’t forget to purchase your tickets for the auction. https://fcafaithopoly.eventbrite.com  We need a head count for the caterer. Also please remember all donations need to be in by October 31st (this Wednesday).

We hope that you can join us this year for our Faithopoly Benefit Auction on November 9th at the Holiday Inn from 6-9. We are doing things a little different this year.  We are asking for donations of items that are either new or gently used for the auction. This is a perfect time to recycle that Christmas or birthday gift that you received and get a tax donation at the same time:).  Our committee has put together a list of suggested items for baskets that we are going to put together. If you have something on the list please sign up and drop off your items at the office. Click here for a list of ideas:)

Christmas Concert:  Mark your calendars and plan to attend our Christmas Concert on December 3rd at Airborne Church, 172 Creative Place, Martinsburg, WV.  There will be an opportunity to bid on the Best Seats in the House and Parking for the Christmas Concert at the auction.

FREE Seminar Series at FCA:  We have an exciting opportunity for our families this year. There is a local Christian counseling service called, Christian Psychological Services, which is owned and operated by Dr. Jonathan Hartiens. We have partnered with this agency to provide our families with three, one hour seminars designed to strengthen your family and give you strategies to help your children thrive academically and spiritually. These valuable seminars are absolutely free to our families and will be held here at the school with free child care provided for pre-kindergarten through fifth grade students!

The flyer seen below provides the details of each of the three sessions. The first session is going to be held on Monday, November 12 at 6:00 p.m. here at Faith Christian Academy.  This seminar is titled, “Creating Discipline and Structure: Strategies to help your children thrive academically.”
