Weekly Newsletter – March 28, 2019

PRINCIPAL’S NOTE

We are halfway through our Journey of Lent, on our way to the Celebration of the Risen Jesus on Easter Sunday. This week we focused on the Parable of the Fig Tree and discussed how important it is to “turn over our soil” and bring the good soil to the top, so we can “bear fruit”. Are your students producing God’s gifts for others?
