A MESSAGE FROM SARAH DONOVAN, PRINCIPAL OF THE 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!

CLASS AND STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Our Transitions+ Classes had the opportunity to go to Chick-fil-A and get a behind the scenes look at how the day to day operations are carried out. A special thanks to Mindi Onderick, Marketing Director, for organizing such an informative and hands-on experience for our students. From squeezing lemons and packaging cookies to meeting the cooks and greeting the customers, the students had a wonderful time.

The First Hope moms were able to spend the morning with one another celebrating our kids last week.  The moms got to experience “The First Hope Favorite Things” and were showered with gifts to remind them of their blessings.  The breakfast was also a time to take a break and get to know one another a little bit better.  At the closing of our time we watched a beautiful video with all our kids and then at the end were all given a bracelet with charms that said, “Never Give Up” and “Hope”.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  Thank you for partnering with us and we are so honored to be able to be used by the Lord to help your children continue to grow and achieve great things.
