Parent Letter - 9/29/23

September 29, 2023
By Bill Sharp

Dear Warrior Nation,

As this gloomy week comes to an end, we can be encouraged that the sun will return by next week, and I pray that you have been able to keep healthy during this season of sickness.  These gloomy conditions and bouts of sickness can leave us run down, sad, and even test our patience (last week’s fruit of the Spirit).  This brings us to this week’s scripture focus – kindness.  Why is kindness so important?  Isn’t it enough to just be a good person?  Of course, the answer is no, and here is why.  To be good puts the focus on me – I do the right things so I get some benefit from it.  If I make good choices, and do good things for my health (exercise, eat right), I reap the rewards.  Being a good person keeps me out of trouble; being a kind person, however, puts the focus on someone else.  Kindness is words or deeds directed at another person in order to benefit them.  Ephesians 4:32 says, “Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”  God set the standard of kindness through the sacrifice of His Son for our sins, as we reap the ultimate benefit of eternal life through our acceptance of Christ’s death, burial, resurrection, and the personal relationship we have with Him through salvation.  One awesome thing about kindness is that it can be done at NO COST.  Sharing a smile, a kind word, or giving some time to help someone are practical ways we can demonstrate kindness.  I believe this is the application of the phrase “Preach the gospel at all times, and if necessary, use words.”

Make plans to attend the volleyball match this coming Tuesday, 3 October, and wear pink to join our volleyball teams in Dig Pink Tuesday as they help raise awareness for breast cancer.  There will be a bake sale on site, so bring your extra cash and cheer on the volleyball teams as they host the homeschool team of CVHAA.  Middle school begins at 4:00 p.m.

The end of the first quarter will be Friday, 13 October.  That day will be a half-day early dismissal for all students, with elementary dismissing at 11:40 and secondary dismissing at 11:55.  Aftercare services end at 4:00 p.m. that day, so please plan student pickup accordingly.  Then, the following Friday (20 October), there will be NO SCHOOL for Parent/Teacher Conferences.  More information and scheduling instructions will be coming soon.

Continue to keep our students’ health and focus in your prayers that they will finish the 1st Quarter strong and committed.  If you have prayer requests, please do not hesitate to share them with us so we can partner with you in lifting your needs before our Heavenly Father.

Blessings,

Bill Sharp, M.Ed.
Head of School
