NOTE FROM SUPERINTENDENT KARLBERG:
I am so proud and grateful for our faculty, staff, and students and their reactions to this past Friday’s earthquake. I have supreme confidence in every one of you. Great job! I am also thankful for the Lord’s protection and provision through the whole situation. I would also like to reiterate that the whole school building has been inspected and there is virtually no damage whatsoever. Miraculous! Hopefully everyone’s lives now are mostly returning to normal so we will hold school the rest of the week as planned. A regular schedule might provide some sense of security especially for children. This week I urge all of you to try and find time to reflect on this holy season that we are entering and thank God for the birth of His Son and His love for each one of us. That is my sincere prayer for each of you! Blessings.
