Once a month on both Mondays and Thursdays (dates listed below) we are privileged to engage in chapel with the purpose to come together in prayer and praise for all that God has blessed us with in our lives and in our school. This is a time of devotion, sharing, praying and praising. We will have chapel for all students who are attending lunch and recess for that day. Students will have time to eat lunch before attending chapel. All recess monitors will help to oversee chapel in the designated rooms and outdoor areas. Parents and teachers are invited and welcomed to join us at 12:10pm! If students can recite the monthly Bible verse during chapel, they get to choose a treasure (but the REAL treasure is hiding God’s Word in their heart!)
