A MESSAGE FROM SARAH DONOVAN, DIRECTOR OF THE EXTENDED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS

 TEEP’s Royal Reach Referral Program for all Extended Educational Programs is a wonderful way to celebrate current families who refer their friends and extended family for the 2017 – 2018 school year.

Here’s how it works: When a student applies and successfully enrolls with any Extended Educational Program, the referring family receives a $150 per child in all age and grade levels at TFA’s Preschool, The Classical School (TCS), and The First Hope. The applicant must name you as their referring family on the student application. Every year, close to 80% of our new families enroll at The First Academy due to a current teacher, staff member, or TFA family recommending our school. We know that a recommendation from YOU carries much more credibility than any print ad can say, and we are grateful!Please help remind your friends to apply early and save their spot for 2017 – 2018! Together we can experience what makes our Extended Educational Programs of The First Academy so special and bring additional mission-appropriate families to share in the excitement of TFA’s Extended Educational Programs.For more information on TFA’s Extended Educational Programs, please visit the links below:

The First Academy Preschool (Ages 8 Weeks- 3 Years Old)
The Classical School of The First Academy (Kindergarten-12th Grade)
The First Hope of The First Academy (PreK- 12th Grade) 

CLASS AND STUDENT SPOTLIGHTS

Several of our moms and their sons participated in the 2nd Annual Mother/Son Bootcamp Night at The First Academy. Dressed in camo, the mother/son teams participated in challenges from tug ‘o war to catching flying frisbees with pizza boxes. These pictures capture the fun they had and the unconditional love between a mom and her son.

PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

 

 

 

He Is Risen indeed!  In Matthew 28:6 it says: He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.  This weekend is a time to celebrate and remember what Christ did for each of us.  He was nailed to a cross but 3 days later He rose again to save us from all our sins.  God loves you so much that He sacrificed His own son so that we call all spend eternity with Him.  Have a great break spending time with your families and loved ones celebrating all that Christ did for you and me.

-Patty Myers
