MIDDLE SCHOOL NEWSLETTER – APRIL 2019
Dear Holland Christian Middle School Parents and Families,
April is next week! A time to prepare our table for Easter. A time to reflect that our Heavenly Father sent his only son to die for our sins. My prayer is that you each enjoy time with your family this upcoming week during spring break.
2 Corinthians 2:14 – But thanks be to God, who always leads us as captives in Christ’s triumphal procession and uses us to spread the aroma of the knowledge of him everywhere.
In April, your student will be taking the MAP test. On these days, please make sure your student has plenty of healthy snacks, good sleep and that appointments are scheduled other days if possible (please see MAP testing dates below). As we enter into the last eight weeks of school, may God continue to be the center and the focus in whatever we do at Holland Christian. Below you will find some exciting things coming up in April.
Thanks for all you do,
