Guiding Hearts - Inspiring Minds - Transforming Lives
  • August 10-14: Virtual VBS
  • August 25: Back to School for the 2020-2021 School Year


Here we are in August.  Where has the time gone? We continue to be busy here preparing for the start of another school year.  It will look and feel different but it will be great because our mission is still the same.  We remain dedicated to guiding hearts, inspiring minds and transforming lives through the love of Jesus.  Our students will learn to be critical thinkers and discerners of the truth.  They will have opportunities to make mistakes and learn from them in a loving environment.  Most importantly we will take on life challenges as a team, #TOGETHER.  Life is not meant to be lived in isolation.  We need each other and we will CONQUEROR whatever is thrown our way because of Jesus and His promises which are steadfast and never changing.  We are praying every day for our school families and faculty.  May you be filled with hope and peace this week in a new way. 

Go Conquerors!!!


As we start a new year, we often get to welcome new staff to the team. I have shared this is previous communications but wanted to introduce some new friends and review the staff changes.  I hope you are excited as we are because God truly does pave a way for some amazing new teachers to bless our students with their gifts, creativity, professionalism, passion and overall awesomeness!  We interviewed many, many candidates and believe God has blessed us with amazing talent this year.  We are going to miss the following teachers who are moving on to pursue other passions for personal reasons: Stacy Jones, Kim Lehmann, Donna Partridge and Michelle Smith.  In addition, there have been some staff we are being assigned new roles to further develop as educators and take on new challenges. Laura Vandebroek is moving back to her previous role in first grade. Sherri Wissman is taking on a new role as TOSA (Teacher on Special Assignment) where she will be supporting our teachers throughout the week and filling in as a substitute teacher as needed.  Kelly Gomez will be in the Science lab and Elizabeth Birt is going to third grade.  We are welcoming the following teacher to our fabulous teaching team. Sheena Sheldon (1st Grade), Tara Correll (2nd grade), Kelley Sher (4th grade), Matthew Phipps (5th grade) and Caylee Jackson (MS Math).  Stay tuned this week and next as we feature our new staff on our Instagram and Facebook accounts.  I know you are going to embrace them with open arms because that is the kind of community we are!  I will continue to feature our facility updates too!  So, stay tuned!
