The First Academy Preschool, Week of April 25th


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

Message from Sarah Donovan,  Principal of The Extended Educational Programs

May 5th is recognized as the National Day of Prayer. The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for our nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Since its inception, this day has continually united Americans from all socio-economic, political, and ethnic backgrounds in prayer while also encouraging personal repentance and righteousness in the culture. The National Day of Prayer belongs to all Americans and is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens to celebrate our most beloved freedom; the freedom to humbly come before God and seek His guidance in prayer. There is comfort and hope in knowing that on this day, the heavens will be filled with the hearts of those across the nation.

Message from Mrs. Grayson Merritt, Director/Assistant Principal
