I trust this finds you doing well as we begin 2017. Please mark your calendar for Pastries with Parents on January 25th, at 8:05 in the worship center. We will have a very short program, and then you can enjoy refreshments with your children in the gym. We are looking forward to our Open House on Sunday, January 25th, from 3:00-5:00. We will meet in the library at 3:00 and classrooms will be open from 3:15-5:00. The middle school teachers will give a presentation at 3:30 and I think you will find the presentation to be very informative. Please join us so that you can meet our excellent staff and visit the classrooms. If you bring a family with you, and if they register before the end of the school year, you will receive $500.00 off of your child's tuition. I know that the decision regarding where to send your child to school is of great importance, so please let me know if the teachers or I can answer any questions during the process.
Congratulation to TJ Tremper, as well as to all of the students who participated in our annual spelling bee. TJ won the Buckner Fanning Spelling Bee, and we are proud of him and his work. He will represent our school at the city-wide spelling bee this spring.
We are currently enrolling students for our after school programs. Most of the organizations require a minimum number of students so please register as soon as possible if this is something you want for your child. Engineering for Kids and The Little Medical School are both excellent programs that are in danger of being canceled. Please contact Griselda Reyna, email@example.com, should you have any questions regarding the after school programs.
Sweatshirts are now available at Parker Uniform. They are navy with plaid letters. They are super cute, and you can find a picture of the shirt in the office.
Thank you to everyone who participated in our annual fund campaign, I am happy to tell you that we exceeded our goal for this important fundraiser. One hundred percent of our staff made a donation, and we are most thankful for their support of our great school. The annual fund will remain open until the end of the school year.
A Night in Old Havana is coming up on February 24th, at Canyon Springs Golf Club. This is our annual gala, and we are looking forward to a great band, delicious food, and amazing auction items. I hope you have received your invitation, and I encourage you to talk to you friends, family members, neighbors, and co-workers about joining you at the gala. Please let me know if you want to sponsor a table or donate an item for the auction.

Some of middle school and high students, parents, and teachers are in Washington, DC for the inauguration. Please pray for their safe travel, and for our country during this time of transition.
I pray God will richly bless you and your family during 2017.
