Dear Pen Bay Christian School Family,
Our Annual Auction is upon us and we are all excited about all the many items available for bid!! Our PBA has worked very hard putting all of this together! This is the to express our gratitude to God and to the people who make a difference in our lives. I am grateful for these tireless men and women who have logged many hours to help our school and our students. Don’t forget our auction is preceded by an opportunity to enjoy some great food and top off your meal with selections from the bake sale table. We hope to see you all tonight!
Earlier in the day, our kitchen was the site of the annual Thanksgiving Hot Lunch for students, teachers, staff, and parents (who wished to attend). Mr. Dodge always produces a delicious homemade meal! If you see him around the school, please show your thanks for his countless hours of volunteering in our kitchen.
Last week’s chapel message was provided by Pastor Bill Hickey. He spoke on the miracles that God performed to convince Pharaoh to release the Jewish people from their enslavement in Egypt. Mrs. Heanssler’s classroom led our chapel. At the end of their portion of the service, she encouraged anyone in the audience to speak to the Lord in prayer. I wish more of you could have heard the spontaneous prayers of some of our students. Prayer builds our relationship with our Heavenly Father! I was delighted to witness the comfortable yet respectful way in which they spoke in prayer.
Mrs. Stanclift’s class is conducting a “Food Drive!” If you would like to help them help others, you can bring your donations to the box outside of the 2nd and 3rd grade classroom.
Finally, this important request and a thank you! First, a very BIG thank you goes out from the office for those of you who have submitted/updated your child’s health records (i.e. birth certificate and immunization records). Maintaining these records is mandated by law and our school must submit reports stating compliance for each student in our preschool and elementary population. Our school nurse certifies these reports. Mrs. Havener will be at our school to complete her screenings and record review the week after Thanksgiving. We do not have a fax machine; records must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org OR brought into the school office. Thank you for your timely assistance.
In Him and for Him,
