Donuts with Dads 2018

Donuts, Dads, their kids and Valentine’s Day  – a perfect combination!  This morning our lower school hallway and classrooms were full of some guys we don’t always get a chance to see.  Thank you to all who came and shared their time with us.  The event was a huge success and we hope our dads felt loved and appreciated because you are!

MS teams finish season as state runners-up

Both of our middle school basketball teams made it to the GICAA state championship games, but came up short to earn runner-up status.  What a great season for both teams and a great accomplishment for them to make it to the finals.  The future is definitely bright for our basketball program.
