In June, you’ll receive a letter in the mail regarding PowerSchool eRegistration for the 2018-2019 school year. This process needs to be completed each school year. We’ll be asking you to complete this process within a short amount of time. Please look for this letter and complete the steps as soon as possible. What you will do is be asked to verify your contact and emergency information and update 2018-2019 permissions (fieldtrips, medication, etc.), chose your payment plan and if paying monthly, set up your automatic monthly payments.

A Prayer for Summer
Father, Creator of all, thank you for summer.
Thank you for the warmth of the sun and the increased daylight.
Thank you for the beauty I see all around me and for the opportunity to be outside and enjoy your creation.
Thank you for the increased time I have to be with my friends and family, and for the more casual pace of the summer season.

Draw me closer to you this summer.
Teach me how I can pray no matter where I am or what I am doing.
Warm my soul with the awareness of your presence and light my path with your word and counsel.
As I enjoy your creation, create in me a pure heart and a hunger and a thirst for you.
