Principal’s Points:
Our Week of Prayer speaker, Chaplain Josias Flores, brought toothpicks, shaving cream or his fish to illustrate a lesson from his life story and one from the Bible. Whether surfing into some rocks or almost drowning, Chaplain Flores made each talk interesting and inspirational. Everyone went away with prizes from stickers to t-shirts. An invitation was given at the end to accept Jesus and Bible studies through Pastor Ross Knight are available for those interested in baptism. 18 students expressed an interest in Bible studies after the Week of Prayer.

BOX TOPS
Start collecting your box tops for our collection drive this fall! This year our classroom competition will run from October 21-25 and the classroom who collects the most box tops will win an ice cream party for their room! Don’t forget to ask your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers as well. Also, this would be a great time to make sure these same people have downloaded the Box Tops for Education app and are scanning their receipts so their purchases are getting counted toward EAS.
