Dear Pen Bay Christian School Family,
If you had attended chapel last week, you would have heard our second and third grade classroom students lead us in their daily morning opener called, “Yeah, God!” At our staff meetings we have been opening with a word of encouragement as Philippians 4:8 encourages us to do. So I share here this week’s staff “Yeah God!” moments. One teacher shared how one of her students has really turned a “corner” in the last few months. Another teacher shared how one of her students had asked to learn more about Jesus. The next moment shared had us all with moist eyes as we heard how two of our students were overheard sharing what it meant to be a Christian with one of their classmates. Now that’s a “Yeah God!” While providing the very best academic education is our daily goal, each of us pray every day that our lives will share Jesus with everyone we meet.
We are encouraged by all of you that have registered your student for the 2016-2017 school year. If you are disappointed that you did not get your registration in by April 1st, let me remind you that we still offer a discount for any registrations received by May 1st. Check out the Registration Fee Schedule for more information. As mentioned in an earlier newsletter, early registrations help us plan for our class sizes and staffing. It also allows us to buy your students’ materials at a discount so we pass that savings on to you as a thank you.
Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our annual Academic Fair, Thursday evening, April 14th from 6:30-7PM! This is always a highlight of our year. Please invite your friends and family so that you can share what our students have studied in their projects this year. Don’t forget that we are once again sharing student art in the art room as well.
In Him and for Him,
- We have only received a few participation slips for the talent show. If your child is participating, it’s important the form is returned ASAP. See Becki Anderson for more information. Thank you!

- Pen Bay Christian School Preschool Open House is next Thursday 4/14 from 9-11am. The preschool classroom will be open to children who will be eligible for preschool in the 2016-2017 school year and their parents. Openings are still available for both the 3 and 4 year old programs. Please help us spread the word.
- Please continue to bring in your bottles and cans! We are still in 4th place! Although we have returned over 4,000 bottles and cans for deposit for the Maine Recycles Championship with CLYNK, we need to double our efforts in order to win prize money for our school! Bottle deposits are worth 50% more for the 2 more weeks if you use the CLYNK bags found in the school office, stickered with the school name. Create your own bottle drive this weekend. 3rd place comes with a $100.00 check! That is the equivalent of 2000 bottle deposits! Let’s take 3rd place back!
