"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms."
1 Peter 4:10
Mrs. Loayza’s Kindergarten
Before Christmas break, we had the opportunity to serve the Salvation Army by bell ringing. It was lots of fun and the rain held off as well. First grade and Ms. Faw's class joined us in this service project. We sang carols to shoppers and were able to spread some joy. This month, we are learning all about arctic animals and winter.
The Scholastic Book Fair is just around the corner. Want to get involved?

Electronics on campus
Middle school students have the privilege of having their cell phones on campus if they are turned off and in their backpack/locker. All other electronic devices should be left at home. The school is not responsible for lost personal items.
Christmas Missions Project
This year Faith Journey Church and Gaarde Christian School were able to raise $3,842 to start trade schools in conjunction with our Uganda Bible School. With a partnering church in Washington we have reached our goal of over $4,000. Thank you to all who gave the gift of skill for life!
