Parents, please take a moment to mark your calendars. The following are important dates that you do not want to miss:


A Message from Sarah Donovan, Principal of Extended Educational Programs

Time flies when you’re having fun! So, we must be having a blast at The Classical School because I can hardly believe it’s the last week of school for our TCS families and students. It has been such a joy becoming a part of such a family oriented school community. I am praying for a summer full of sweet memories with family, friends, and LOTS of reading! I know the summer has not even begun, but you all will be so missed, and cannot wait to welcome you back in August. We would love to hear about your summer adventures, and you are welcome to keep Mr. Fana and I posted via email. Blessings for a stellar summer!

The End of a Christian – A Devotional from PJ Wehry

Since we talked about what an end is last week, I wanted to consider what the end goal of a Christian is. In John 15, I think Jesus shares a clear picture of what a Christian is meant to be. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” Too often we allow sin and failure to drag us down, but Christ has not called us to be perfect. He has called us to be mature. Human beings are messy creatures. Christ has not called us to the crystalline magnificence of diamonds. He could have used that metaphor. Instead, he calls us to be fruitful branches. There is much to meditate on this passage, but I want to leave you with two things. First, preparing fruitful branches is not an easy task, but it’s not an impossible one. People tend their gardens all the time. Sure, it takes dedication, knowledge, and care, but people do bring fruit from their gardens. Our goal as Christians is an attainable one. Second, our fruitfulness is only possible through the sustaining power of the vine. Without Christ, we cannot be fruitful. So, as a Christian, seek out what it means to be a fruitful branch and rest in the knowledge that your fruitfulness comes from your union with Christ.
