Our June event is geared specifically towards seriously dating, engaged, and young married couples.
Happily Planning Your Ever After (Faith-based)
*For dating, engaged and young married couples*
Saturday, June 19th, 2021
We fall in love and decide to get married. But will that initial euphoria of love carry us through to a happily ever after fairy tale romance? Sadly, no. If a life-long/successful marriage could be attainable merely by falling in love, then why are there so many marriages that end in separation or divorce? The fact is, to sustain a loving/healthy relationship, both spouses in a marriage must find ways to keep connected to, grow with, and support their shared journey--together. An early step in this process is working together to clarify expectations, make plans, and establish goals. Join Certified Professional Christian Life Coach Shane Hansen for an interactive seminar designed to help engaged and newlywed couples get their marriage started on the right track. Shane will apply the proven processes associated with the discipline of life coaching to the focus of happily planning for (and living) your ever after. Location: Great Marriages Office-IN PERSON! Cost: $15/person (includes snacks and beverages); Limited to first 20 people; Register at: www.great-marriages.org/events

A big thank you to the PTO for approving a project using funds that they have raised. This project will enable us to more easily live stream sporting events in our gym and other events through the purchase and installation of professional grade equipment. Their generosity of time, talents, and financial resources continue to bless our school beyond measure.
|Fall School Immunization Reminder|
Will your child be starting Kindergarten or 6th grade next fall? This summer will be an excellent time to have them visit their health care provider for an exam and to provide the needed vaccines required for school. While the kids are out of school, it’s much easier to arrange for them to receive these required vaccines. If you plan to do it early in the summer, you avoid the rush before classes start in the fall. Provide the dates of their new vaccines to school so we can update their school records. Now is the time to talk to your provider about the required and recommended vaccines for your child.
|Grades K-2 Track Meet - May 27-BEGINNING @ 1:00 PM|
