A Miracle to See

What a wonderful time of the school year, our annual Fall Festival, when our campus grounds hold an entertaining, festive celebration for the young and old. Barbeque, the games and inflatables worked by juniors and seniors, plus the Spooky Trail bringing in funds for missions and then the evening auction.  All this historically provides a win-win and a great means of financial support for the school. To see the team of faculty and staff give their all for the Lord's work is a tremendous example of sacrificial servant-leadership, personifying the school's mission statement in training our young people to serve Christ. Phyllis Frye, assistant principal said, "The day is a good time of fellowship with parents, students, faculty, staff and our alumni. From the days in advance of the items donated, the organization of so many things behind the scenes, to the men who work the night before to cook the meat and the students helping set up the day before, this is an event that requires so many hands and a lot of work in advance. I'm very grateful for all who serve."

Adding another aspect of fun and service for the students, elementary classes made fall art to decorate the gym,  and Mrs. Angie Thomas, librarian, coordinated a pumpkin decorating contest in which the students decorated their pumpkins like their favorite books and characters. 

In considering all the events of the day, office manager Angie Stout said, "We had great parent involvement, we increased our take-out orders this year, and everyone worked really hard. We appreciate our vendors who took their time to setup in our gym too. The teamwork was excellent!"

As administrator Todd Daniel considered the success of the day, he said, "I cannot emphasize how a lot of people do a lot of different things. Often times we don't even ask for some things, but it's exactly what we need. It's a miracle that it happens as it does because it doesn't make sense. Many hands really do make light work."
