We had a record crowd at our back to school event called All School Celebration on Tuesday, August 8. It was standing room only in the gym as Dr. Dougherty cast vision for the upcoming year. Our theme for the year is Walk Worthy out of Philippians 1:27. This challenge is not just for our students, but for all of us – teachers, administrators and parents – to walk worthy before our students to help them emulate Christ. We have all been given a gift – eternal life through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This message is known as the Gospel. The apostle Paul challenges us to walk in such a manner to be counted worthy as those who have been changed by the Gospel.
After our time in the gym, families were given a special SCA water bottle as a gift then they made their way to the cafeteria for our first ever “TASTE of SCA” put on by our awesome kitchen staff. New entrees were offered for families to sample. One of our Silver SCA Sponsors – Dunkin Donuts – was on hand to offer samples of coffee and donuts! It was a happening place!
Finally, families and students made their way throughout the hallways to greet friends, meet their teachers, and find their lockers! It was a great way to generate excitement for the upcoming school year. Please join us in prayer that our commitment to walk worthy will become a reality in all of our lives this year.
