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 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.”

Falcon Band & Orchestra Concert: Make plans to join us for the Falcon Band & Orchestra’s 3rd Annual Fall Preview Concert on Wednesday, November 28th at 2:00 in the FCA gymnasium. This 30-minute concert gives our audience a sneak peek at the great things happening musically in our advanced band and strings classes this year. Upper elementary students will attend the concert, and parents and the public are invited too. Come celebrate the musical talent and hard work of our middle-school and high-school instrumentalists.

Christmas Concert: Please make plans to join us on Monday, December 3rd, at 7:00pm at Airborne Church, 172 Creative Place, Martinsburg, WV 25401. Student performers should arrive by 6:45. Although previously announced the requested attire of “Sunday Best”, we want the students to look good, it’s also important that they be comfortable and that they have full range of motion. Tennis shoes, khakis, and a Christmas-colored sweater may help your student perform more easily than a fancy dress with uncomfortable dress shoes. We are trusting parents to make the best clothing choice for their children; either is acceptable.

At the concert, you’ll be given an opportunity to participate in our Christmas Love Offering. This offering is used to give our faculty and staff a nice Christmas bonus.

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.
