Diary of Anne Frank

Our talented Upper School Drama Department is presenting The Diary of Anne Frank October 19th at 7pm, October 20th (school performance, and October 21st at 3pm and 7pm at the Upper School gym! This play is based on the diary kept by Anne Frank during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands. Our student actors have been rehearsing and working hard to portray Anne and her family’s story well. We hope you can come out to support our actors while also learning more about our world’s history.

Treasures and Stewardship

Chapel at the Lower School started off with our Prayer Warrior, Abby (4th), focusing our hearts on the Lord through prayer. Then students, teachers, and a parent led everyone in a fun favorite, “Father Abraham,” followed by three other worship songs. 

As we continue with our month’s theme of stewardship, Pastor Will reminded us to take care of the stuff we have because it all belongs to God. He illustrated this by filling bags with stuff that means something to him. He then invited six students on stage to help discover what the bags contained. They discovered the bags all held things with significant value to Pastor Will. He takes care of these items because each one means something to him. When Pastor Will shares his valuables with others, he wants them to take care and be good stewards of his stuff. 

He closed his message with the Parable of the Talents, found in Matthew 25:14-30. (Click here to see Pastor Will’s teaching!) The story taught us that since everything belongs to God, we need to use our stuff wisely. In this way, we can be good stewards.

We look forward to learning more together about stewardship next week!

6th Grade Meteorologists

When tasked with a weather project to take on the role of a news reporter or meteorologist, sixth graders Parker M. and Tyler W. sought help from a true expert in field, Channel 6 News Chief Meteorologist Tom Sorrells. The boys visited the news station, and Mr. Sorrells and the 7pm news crew gave them an ultimate field trip experience.

Parker and Tyler not only learned about the behind-the-scenes action of a news station, but they also appeared as part of a television news segment and on Facebook Live. Mr. Sorrells and his team also showed Parker and Tyler the weather data from Hurricane Irma and then helped them record a “news” style video for their project. Special thanks to Tom Sorrells and the news crew at Channel 6 for helping Parker and Tyler. We are so appreciative of professionals in our community who give students real world experiences and such memorable opportunities!
