This is the student who truly goes after God with their whole heart.  It is displayed in their response to authority, how they treat their peers, and their desire to know more about God, their king.

4th Grade students are collecting travel-size toiletry items to donate to area shelters.  Students will sort and bag items in care packages that will include: shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste and a toothbrush.  The mission project also partners with several area dentists who will contribute the toothpaste and toothbrushes.  Students will add an extra message to each bag with homemade cards that say, "Jesus loves you."

5th Grade students presented the 3rd Annual VIP's of the 1920's Wax Museum on Monday.  The students worked hard to research a famous individual from the 1920s and bring them to life!
