Week 2, Quarter 4                                                April 19, 2010

Parents,
  Encourage your children as they move down the final stretch of this school year to
finish strong. It is very easy to put things off when it is so nice. Only four more
sleeps and we will be into May. Say goodbye to the showe rs, more like flurries, and
hello to the flowe rs and don’t look at the forecast, look at the calenda r.

 Remembe r to mark on your calendars the Annual Meeting scheduled for May 11 th
at 7:00 pm. Be in prayer as to what God would have you doing for the school for the
coming year. An age nda will be sent out soon.

 Please remember to send back the report cards when you are finished with them.
There is one more piece to be stapled to it and then it will be completed for the year
and you will be able to keep it and put it in the scrapbook or me mory book or put it
on eBay. If you have any questions or would like to set up an inte rvie w time please
call the school or write it on the report card and your teacher will get back to you.

 Parents please remember that space is filling up fast for next year. Don’t delay in
getting your Re-enrolment forms in. The re are 35 students registered thus far. We
are also accepting registrations for ne w students. Talk to your friends and
neighbours, yourselves and God, if now is the time to register at Lighthouse
Christian Academy. The budget for next year is being worked on and it becomes a
more valuable tool to use if the numbers are accurate.

 We will be enjoying our first ever Salad Bar on Tuesday. There will be 5 or 6
different salads.




 It is time to sign up and show your special talent. May 5 th starting at 12:40 we are
going to have Talent Day at Lighthouse Christian Acade my. Students and staff will
be demonstrating some unique and interesting and ente rtaining things. It is hard to
put into words so come out and expe rience it for yourself and bring your came ra.




                                                                                         1

                        The Grad Banquet is coming up June 19 th . The grade 8/9
students will be serving and cleaning up in pre parations for their own celebration
only a few years away.

 Bibles for Grads is coming up June 2nd for all the grads in Sylvan Lake. The
committee is looking for turkey cookers, card encourager writers, and table
setterupers, servers and donations for Bibles. If you are able to help with any of
these projects talk to Mrs. Nielsen. This might be the 16th annual Bible give away.
Be a part of blessing the graduates of Sylvan Lake. Someone in this group might be
running the nursing home when you need it!

 The Mission’s team for next year is heading out on the highway next Saturday to
clean the ditches. We are meeting at the school at 7:30 AM starting with a safety
meeting. If you love walking or picking up garbage or love being a part of a group
but you are not in highschool you are still welcome to join us for what will be a great
day. We are in need of at least 5 adults but the more the merrier as we are covering
the area from the traffic circle in Sylvan Lake to the Bentley turnoff. It is only 16
Kilometres, twice. This is a lot for one person but not very much for a large g roup.
