Under Construction: Building Saints & Scholars!
Another milestone completed! 114 yards of concrete were poured for the second floor.
Continuing to work on siding on the East side of the building, and blocks being laid for the stairwell.
A salamander heater running on propane is being used to keep the building warm.
Next week look for HVAC duct-work on the second floor!

Please keep our Rube Goldberg team in your prayers. This is our first team EVER and they will present their machine in competition tomorrow at Jac-Cen-Del. They had to create a contraption (machine) that, in at least 10 separate steps but no more than 75, will put a coin into a piggy bank. They have worked hard to get their machine ready and we are very proud of them.
Kindergarten Screening went well. We had 20 potential students join us. If you know of anyone else who might be interested in attending kindergarten here next year, please have them call the school office. Class size will be limited.
As the Lenten Season is upon us, it is time to open our hearts a little wider and understand our Lord a little deeper. As we examine our sinful nature and really think about what Jesus did for us, here are some things to consider...
Please pick up a yard sign to help spread the word about our school registration!
