Each day I keep hoping to see more evidence of Spring, and sometimes I see it - a new bud on a leaf, a bulb that's gained a little more height.

As I think of this, it reminds me of our journey of faith. It's hard to see the evidence of the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent God that I love and serve. But if I look closely, and often in retrospect, I can see His divine hand.

Isaiah 43:19 says, "See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland."

I pray that you will see evidence of God through His creation as we move on from Winter to Spring.

SOS Hour Opportunities
Passover Chapel on April 6th 
Every three years, I do a very special chapel near Easter highlighting the role of Passover. Passover is an important part of the Easter message as Christ served as the Passover lamb through the events leading to His death and resurrection.
I am looking for three parents who can help on Thursday, April 6th around 8:30am. I also have some items for which I'm looking for parents to provide. Please email Mrs. Schmitke if you are able to help.

8th Grade Recognition
I am in need of a core group of individuals to help plan this year's 8th grade recognition.  Please email Mrs. Schmitke if you are interested in help with this event either by being on a planning committee or by helping with aspects such as decorations, memory boards, food. 
One-to-One Device Update for 17-18
For the 2017-2018 school year, 7th and 8th grade students will transition beyond the current Bring Your Own Device program by interacting with more content online through a 1:1 Device program. We are excited that implementation of our new learning management system is moving forward for next school year. Here are a few highlights for the transition: 
  1. Students will receive Office 365 for education at no charge.
  2. Students will have an email address with the school domain to use for accessing RenWeb and online content.
  3. Students will provide their own device per the specifications previously communicated. The specifications are available here.
 
To implement our 1:1 program, we are increasing our wireless network infrastructure and moving staff and students to Office 365. Stay tuned for additional updates!
