The Classical School Newsletter, Week of May 5


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

“The customer’s perception is your reality.”  In the upcoming week all TCS, The First Hope, and Preschool families will be receiving a family survey to complete via email. These anonymous surveys provide program leadership with strong insight, ideas, and feedback on what you love and what we can continue to improve upon. In addition to family surveys, we will also be releasing surveys to our faculty and staff to provide feedback on their experiences, needs, and celebrations. These surveys are created specifically for each Extended Educational Program and are invaluable to the continued growth of our programs. Please take the time to share your heart and thoughts with us. We are listening.



Publix Field Trip


TCS kiddos and their siblings went to the Dr Phillips Marketplace Publix on April 29th. They learned, tasted, and explored their way through the deli, produce, cooking school, and bakery departments.

What is an End? – A Devotional from PJ Wehry

Here we are. The end of the school year is looming ever closer, and I find myself thinking, what is an end? On the surface (and from a dictionary point of view) an end is the final part of something, whether it be a story, a project, or a school year. But life goes on after, people still live their lives long after this school year is wrapped up and finished. What makes this an end? What makes anything an end? It is the culmination, it is the completion of something. Another use of the word “end” is as a synonym for goal. This is the end for which we have been working. As we approach the end of the year, this is a great time to step back and reflect. What was my goal for this school year? For my children? For me? Is there anything I can do to finish in a meaningful way? As you finish, finish strong. James 1 reminds us, “Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”
