Principal’s Points:
This Sabbath our whole school is in charge of the worship service at Spartanburg SDA church. Your child has a part to play so plan to be there. Sabbath School starts at 9:30 am. At 10:15 am, Mrs. Burgin, the EAS choir leader, is wanting each student to come to the church choir room which is located upstairs from their bell choir music room. I look forward to seeing our students involved in ministry and seeing you as you support their efforts. What a blessing to see our youth in action! They’ve worked hard to prepare so don’t miss it!
