Middle School Newsletter: February 2018
Dear HCMS Parents and Families,
I have started this letter several times. What a month it has been for our school. The journey and my placement in this position is only from the Lord. I went to visit Dirk Hollebeek in the hospital earlier this month and he said to me “it is not my school, and not your school – it is God’s school.” We are partnering together.
Through the chaos and confusion of someone fighting for their life, God has provided Shalom in the middle school because it is HIS school. And these are HIS children. They are amazing and wonderful students and you should be so very proud to call them your own.
Several of you have stopped into the office to introduce yourself. Thank you for that. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.
Thanks for all you do,
