1st Grade Wax Museum

Our first grade students recently hosted a “wax museum!” They prepared a presentation and dressed as their favorite community helpers. When visitors to the “museum” pressed the activation button, students went into character, sharing everything they’d learned about their community helper of choice. 

Thank you to Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs. Hardy, and everyone else who helped our students learn in this memorable way! 

Chapel: Forgiveness

This week Luca (3rd grade) opened our chapel time at the Lower School, and our 6th grade Music Crew led worship. The 1st graders really got into the silly song, “Making Melodies!” After our worship time together, Pastor Will continued teaching about our theme of forgiveness through the story of the prodigal son found in Luke 15.  Mason (5th grade) and Owen (6thgrade) both assisted Pastor Will by drawing sketches of the two sons in the story.

We learned that the father in this story is a picture of our Heavenly Father. God waits patiently, with loving compassion to restore us when we return to him with humble hearts. Bitterness and resentment keep the older son (who is a picture of the Pharisees) from forgiving his younger brother. It blinds him to the treasure he freely enjoys through constant relationship with the father.

This story definitely spoke to our theme of forgiveness, and we look forward to learning more together as the month continues!

Dr. Phillips Center Art Reception

The FA Art Department hosted a gallery reception on Thursday, March 9th to showcase the artwork they created for the Dr. Phillips Center’s performance of The Little Mermaid. FA was chosen among all area schools–both public and private–for this tremendous honor!  “We found the entire experience to be a thrilling creative exploration and fabulous opportunity to show off our award winning art work to the Orlando community”, said Mary Ellen Murray, art teacher. Over 80 people came to the reception and enjoyed our students’ artwork. We’ve created a digital gallery below so you can enjoy their work as well!

Signing Day at FA!

DSC_0624Today we celebrated Chaz Cannon, Jacob Titus, and Jaquane Patterson during a special signing ceremony at the Upper School. All three of these football players have achieved their dream of playing at the collegiate level. This is a tremendous accomplishment that represents countless hours of training and dedication. We loved gathering as a school family to recognize these talented Lions!

DSC_0595Chaz Cannon will be playing for Maryville College in Tennessee. David Baginski, FA Athletic Director, had this to say regarding Chaz: “Chaz Cannon is one of those players who puts a lot on his shoulders. He doesn’t want to let down his team or coaches.” And Chaz took time to thank both his team and coaches. “I want to thank God–without Him, I wouldn’t be here. And I want to thank my coaches, my team, and the teachers and administrators.”

DSC_0604Jacob Titus was next to sign. He’ll be playing for Huntingdon College in Alabama. “Jacob Titus earned his way onto the field,” Coach Baginski said of the committed player. When speaking about his football career to date, Jacob said, “I’ve loved every second. And I want to thank Foundation Academy for welcoming me with open arms.”

DSC_0615The final player to sign was Jaquane Patterson who will be attending the University of Charleston in West Virginia. Coach Baginski described Jaquane as a player with “a non-stop motor. He has a ‘never give up’ quality. He’s going to fight and fight until he wins.” And his determination has definitely paid off. Jaquane thanked God, family, and friends for all of their support along the way. “I also want to thank the teachers at Foundation for believing in me and giving me a chance.”

We are so proud of Jaquane, Jacob, and Chaz for achieving their dreams. We look forward to watching these Lions as they continue their football careers at the next level. We will be cheering them on every step of the way!
