Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily bears us up; God is our salvation. (ESV)

It has been a good school year. Do you hear the sigh of relief in those words? Every school year begins with uncertainties, but there were so many uncertainties that were unique to this school year. In reflection, my heart is full of thankfulness to our God. His blessing was abundant in His physical protection and in His daily provision for each need.

We are also thankful for each of our students and the families they represent. Many of you have given of your time, energy, and resources to serve the school in some way this year, and we are grateful for your help. It takes many volunteers to make each school year successful.

As we anticipate summer, it is my prayer that we will to “run looking to Jesus, the Founder and Perfecter of our faith.” We look forward to seeing you in August!

With a grateful heart,
Mrs. Regier
