 Message from Mrs. Sarah Donovan, Director of The Extended Educational Programs

 It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! A time of love, joy, and traditions. One family tradition celebrated in my home was watching Charlie Brown’s Christmas on Christmas Eve. I find that in the hustle, bustle of the holiday season, Linus’s scripture reading from Luke 2 anchors me to the true ‘meaning of the season’. I share it with all of you, our TEEP families, as a reminder of the Nativity of Christmas.Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?!

 

Linus: Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights please?

 

“And there were in the same country Shepards abiding in

the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And lo, the

angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone

round about them, and they were sore afraid. And the angel said

unto them, ‘fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great

joy which will be to all people. For unto you is born this day in

the city of David a savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this

shall be a sign unto you. Ye shall find the babe wrapped in

swaddling clothes lying in the manger.’ And suddenly, there was

with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and

saying, ‘glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good

will toward men.’”

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

3’s Miss Kim, Miss Ebony and Miss Melanie’s Class:

I know it is hard to believe but enrollment for your child’s KPrep class for next year has already begun.  To make the process as seemless as possible, please check out the website link  http://thefirstacademy.org/admissions/how-to-apply/ which will take you directly to TFA’s Admission page.  From there you will be able to begin the online admission’s process to complete the application for your child to apply for KPrep at The First Academy.  I encourage you to begin this process right away as space is limited for the KPrep program.

We are excited to share with you that we already have 11 friends who have been accepted for next year!

Please feel free to contact Lyn Hawkins, TFA Admissions with any questions (407) 206-8602.  Please let me know how I can be helpful or can offer any additional assistance.
