Agricultural Science Students Continue Their Winning Tradition

Congratulations to our Dairy Quiz Bowl teams for a job well done! The students competed in the 4-H State Dairy Quiz Bowl in Statesville, North Carolina, in May 2017. The "Holy Cows" senior team placed third in their division, and the "Holy Holsteins" placed first in the junior division and third in Skill-a-thon. Another junior team, the "Jersey Midgets," placed third in Quiz Bowl.

Since their beginnings in 2005, the different teams have placed in both the state and national levels. Ms. Marjie Grubb, the team coach, said, "I appreciate how the students take this seriously and work so hard. It's exciting for me to take students to the national competitions and win and then to be known as the 'little North Carolina team.'"

Students Awarded for Their Achievements

As the last days of school came to a close, the students in both elementary and the middle and high school grades met to receive recognition for their diligent achievements. While the elementary students had their ceremony on the last full day of school, the middle and high school students met for a banquet and were awarded both athletic and academic honors. Highest grade point averages earned medallions and certificates in each class and grade, while other students received recognition for sports achievements, including merits earned from the North Carolina Christian School Association of All-Region and All-State Athletes. Students within the American Honor Society were recognized for their diligence as well in meeting the academic critieria. Most of all, the student body vote honored Christian leadership for the middle and high school grades. Both Jacob Avelino and Katie Gaines were honored on the middle school level, while Jace Burroughs and Rebekah McLanahan were awarded the high school honors.

We are proud to congratulate our students on their achievements for the 2016-2017 school year.

Christmas Joy, Peace and Music

school - ms,hs news - '16 chr. concertSetting the tone for the Christmas spirit, the middle and high students performed their annual concert with beautiful Christ-centered music. Our newest band members, sixth grade girls accompanied by their instructor, Melody Humble, sounded a jolly opening - "Jingle Bells and "Holy Jolly Christmas." Continuing with a joyous spirit, the middle school added songs such as "Joy to the World," "Silver Bells," and a concert tradition, "Feliz Navidad."

Student musicians also added to the program.  Sisters, Karrie and Katie Gaines, played their stringed instruments, senior Jace Burroughs sang "Sweet Little Jesus Boy,"and senior Hannah Bertrand accompanied the high school chorus on the piano.  The Echoes of Faith handbell choir performed songs, including "Go Tell it on the Mountain" and finished the concert accompanying the high school ensemble in "Let There Be Peace on Earth."

To top off the musical performance, the Advanced Speech Class performed Max Lucado's "Limb-Climber or Branch Sitter" and called attention to the true depths of the season - the Christ of Christmas, who was born to die for all mankind.

The students' great performance caused the Faith family to worship our Savior, who deserves all of our praise in every season of the year.
