Elementary Holds Student Council Elections
Last week our school was covered in posters as we had 34 students campaigning for an opportunity to serve in our student council. On Wednesday, each of those students courageously gave a speech in front of the entire class body. It was incredible seeing all of those students work so hard for an opportunity to serve our school. On Thursday afternoon, we named our 7 core student council members and we will be having more class representatives join them this week. This student council body will be responsible for helping plan and serve at different events and service projects throughout the school year. It is a great opportunity for our elementary students to learn about how to be a servant leader. Biblically, our leaders should serve others first following the model that Jesus laid out for us in the New Testament.
What an amazing night everyone had at our Welcome Back Carnival with the music playing and the kettle corn popping! We had games, vendors, Ice cream, and coffee trucks!
The freshman class had a blast at Oxnard Beach Park on Friday. The class gathered together to play games, listen to a devotional, hang out with friends, and play in the water and sand. The retreat was a great way for new and old students to connect outside of the classroom. Students enjoying a device-free event where they can talk face to face, throw a ball around, and enjoy God's beauty is really special.
