-Proverbs 3:5,6

Principal MatthewsPrincipal's Message

The year is progressing quickly but efficiently. I am super impressed with the camaraderie and fellowship among our students. Academically, we are moving ahead rapidly now. A reminder, parents, that students should be bringing home schoolwork on a regular basis, Monday through Friday. If they are not, you may want to check with your teacher.
We have been utilizing our new school van with numerous outings, and our basketball and volleyball practices have begun. Our “Goodies and Grands” event was a real blessing to all. Thanks again for the great turnout and thanks to home and school for all the goodies. We rallied around our flag to remember those that were lost on 9/11.
Our week of prayer is next week with Pastor Greg Taylor. If you are able to attend, parents are welcome to come.
Our IOWA testing is going to run the following week, and breakfast will be served to all students Monday through Thursday. Please make sure your student gets plenty of rest that week so their brain is on high alert! A reminder that our high school students will be heading out to D.C. for their history trip soon. Remember, only you can prevent forest fires!

Owl Day - Invite a friend!
On Friday, October 5, we will be having a special day that is open to visiting students in grades PreK-8. We will start the day with our weekly chapel program, then we will be hosting a Raptor Rescue Group who will be bringing several owls and giving a special presentation. Then students will be returning to their classrooms for some fun owl-themed activities. JCPS is out of school that day, so if you know a student that would like to come, let them know. Registration is required as space will be limited. We will be sending more details and information via email as we get closer to that date.
Cookie Dough!
Eighth grade is raising money for their class trip and graduation, and they need the whole school’s help to get the most orders possible! The students will be given sales booklets today, before the holiday weekend. They will be competing among the classrooms for the highest percentage of sales per student in order to win a pizza party. Orders will be due September 28. Click here for full details.

Health Nugget - Solar Power 
Sunshine is a powerful promoter of health and well-being. It promotes positive thinking by increasing serotonin, an important “happiness” brain chemical. Adequate sunlight during the daytime also leads to higher levels of melatonin in the brain at night and improves sleep as well as mood. Sunlight has been shown to kill germs and is the best source of vitamin D, which facilitates the building of strong bones. While a sunburn can increase the risk of skin cancer, moderate amounts of sunlight can actually help prevent cancer. For the best health, it is important to get adequate sunshine without getting sunburned.
