certificates, etc.); or if you have someone you know

who would like to donate, please bring these

items to the school office or workroom. Thank you!


This month we were able to collect $304.45 toward

the Haiti mission project. This money was given

the grandmother and grandfather Markle (the

Meyers’ grandparents) as they will leave as missionaries to Haiti

this week. We pray that their mission as well as our offerings will be                                               blessings to the people of Haiti.


Congratulations to our boys’ basketball team for

three well contested games at Roundball this

past weekend. They were victorious over Zion,

Pierce; came up just short of St. Paul, West Point; and they were victorious over host Christ, Juaniata to take third place. Our free throw team of Elijah Utter, John Fehlhafer, Jayde Gumaer, Alex Hirschfeld, and Christian Chesnut brought home 1st place honors with 35 of 50 free throws. Christian had a perfect 10 for 10. Thank you parents, fans, and players for an enjoyable weekend.
