It has been a wonderful school year! 143 children and 110 families have heard the name of Jesus every single school day! Thank you for your love and prayerful support. Thank you also to those who have given donations for scholarships. Your generosity is life changing gift for many families!
During this school year, our children participated in many service activities. They filled stockings and Easter baskets for the children of Young Lives, they filled boxes for Operation Christmas Child, they donated clothes and toys to Orphan Grain Train and Young Lives and can you believe that our Kindergarten classes raised over $1100.00 for the children of St. Jude’s Cancer Research Hospital? Our chapel offerings also were donated to the Women’s Guild for children all over the world. Our hope is that the joy of helping others will stay with these little ones as they grow!
I am pleased to tell you that we have 134 children registered for the 2017-2018 school year so far! Please join me in praying for every child and family God will bring through our doors!
As I write this article, we are getting ready for our annual Art Show and Ice Cream social! We anticipate serving ice-cream to over 400 people! The children’s art will cover the walls and the joy they feel when their families come to see their art and their school will fill the halls to overflowing!
May is exciting here at CMLS, as we honor our mom’s with our annual Mother’s Day Teas! We also have our end of year picnics and the Kindergarten will celebrate their graduation on May 18th! We are also excited to begin our Summer Camps on Monday, May 22nd!
Since this is the last school article for this school year, I want to take a moment to thank Pastor Hoover, Joel McFadden and the church council, Dave Sonnenberg, Russ Romberger, Linda Knoll and the CMLC school board members; Sarah Heilman, Lynne Clark, Christy Coluccio, Nicole Dallas, Irene McFadden and Carol Sonnenberg, for all of their kindness and dedication to the children, families and staff of CMLS. We are so grateful to you!
Thank you for all you do and all you are to me, the staff and our little ones. What a privilege it is to serve alongside of you for the kingdom of God! Have a wonderful summer!
