PreK - 8th *  2018-2019

Starts Next Thursday, February 22nd 


Students in Kindergarten – 8th grade divided into their chapel families and participated in a walking field trip down to downtown Williamsburg on Thursday, February 15th in order to Share His Love to the community as a joint Valentine’s Day/Lenten Season Project in the community.   In addition to distributing a free rose to individuals they passed out a flier that said, “Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and we also started the Lenten Season when we remember Christ’s death and resurrection.    The red on this rose reminds us of the blood that Jesus shed on the cross for our sins.   By His death and resurrection our sins are forgiven and our sins are washed away.  The yellow on the rose is like sunshine and reminds us of the JOY we have daily as we serve Christ. 

           Let all that you do be done in love.            

                                               1 Corinthians 16:14 (ESV)”     

It also gave information about LIS and our mission here.   This project was funded by Thrivent’s Live Generously Grant.  The only cost was the cost of the roses -  200 beautiful roses from Sam’s Club - $235.36.  What a great witness for our school in sharing the Love of Christ!

LIFETOUCH SPRING PICTURES:  Spring pictures are scheduled to take place on Wednesday, February 28, 2018.    There is no need to send any money. Picture forms will be sent home next week THURSDAY with your choice of backgrounds.   Have your child wear their picture outfit on February 28th  and bring their order form and a SMILE!   After picture day, portraits will be sent home for your review and you will have the chance to order your Spring Portraits.
