What You Should Know

Chapel

This year’s offerings will be designated to a variety of ministries. This quarter we will use offering money to purchase items for care packages for veterans. Please help us teach our students the principles of good stewardship and the joy of giving by talking with them about their offering for each Wednesday morning Chapel. Don’t forget, parents are welcome every Wednesday morning to join us.

FALL FUNDRAISER

It’s that time of year!! Be on the lookout for packets coming home with your child this week! The PTL is fundraising with Fun Pasta Fundraising! What is fun pasta?? Fun Pasta is pasta shaped like the holidays, sports, collegiate team logos, and more. The brochure features a wide variety of shapes that will appeal to everyone!
If every student sells at least 6 bags of pasta or gets $40 in donations we would meet our goal. The pasta is just $6.50 - $8.00 a bag. There will be a prize for top seller(items), and highest classroom of items sold!!! So be on the lookout! All proceeds will go towards purchasing industrial fans for our gym.
Have fun, Eat pasta, and Raise Money!!!

The last day to turn in your orders is Friday, September 6th.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact PTL:


CHAPEL TRIBES


Every Wednesday at Chapel our students sit with the Tribes. Tribes are consisted of a Tribe Leader and a mix of students from each grade. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet more brothers and sisters in Christ. In order to foster those relationships amongst the tribe mates, we are planning tribe activities. When we have tribe activity days, we will have a relaxed dress code for shirts, and encourage students to wear their tribe color. Keep in mind, their tribe and their tribe color will not change throughout the year. Our first tribe activity is scheduled for next Thursday, August 29th. If you would like your child to dress in their tribe color, we wanted to give you time to plan.
Here are the tribe colors:
Asher Tribe, led by Miss Tinkey- Royal Blue
Benjamin Tribe, led by Mrs. Klick- Red/Burgundy
Dan Tribe, led by Mrs. Schultz- Pink
Gad Tribe, led by Mrs. Garber- White
Issachar Tribe, led by Mrs. Johnson- Light Blue/Teal
Joseph Tribe, led by Mrs. McCartney- Purple/Lavender
Judah Tribe, led by Mr. Galligar- Yellow
Levi Tribe, led by Miss Thomas- Grey
Naphtali Tribe, led by Mr. Huntington-Orange
Rueben Tribe, led by Pastor Troy/ Pastor Luke-Black
Simeon Tribe, led by Mrs. March- Green
Zebulun Tribe, led by Mr. March- Tie-Dye
