A Great Year

May 23, 2014
By Rev. Rick Calloway

I am so grateful to God for giving us such a great school year! From orientation to Springapalooza we have been blessed by all that has taken place on our campus. We began the year with the theme verse being Joshua 3:5 which declares: “Set yourselves apart today; for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among you.” The Lord has done great wonders amongst us this year as we have seen 126 students receive Christ and so many more grow in their relationship with Him.

We have also seen great growth in all of our academic programs and extracurricular activities. Our test scores in all subjects continue to soar above the national average. We are also very proud of the Class of 2014 with 64 graduates who have earned over five million dollars in college scholarship opportunities.

I want to say a very special thank you to all of our families for how you have supported and prayed for us this school year. I am also grateful for all of the efforts of faculty and staff for making Metrolina such a special place.

We are excited about next school year and all that the Lord has in store for our school. I want to provide below some of the many program enhancements that will be part of next school year:

· Our new playgrounds will be finished over the summer

· Our new bathroom facility at the Whitson Athletic Complex will be ready for football season

· We will be adding two hundred seats in bleachers for football this coming season

· We will unveil our new marching band this coming fall

· New mobile technology labs will be available for Lower and Middle School

· Introduction of Moodle and one to one devices for High School students

· Expanded offerings for gifted students in Middle School

· Foreign language enhancements

· Fine arts enhancements

· Expanded college concurrent opportunities for high school students

· Facility enhancements

· New lower elementary math curriculum

· Expanded Guidance Department staff to better meet the needs of students

· Incredible speakers booked for chapels of all ages

· New offering of parenting classes

· Continued development of our Warrior Student Leadership Program

· Great new faculty coming on board

· Enhanced apologetics conference for students

· New anti-bullying program for Lower and Middle School students

God has created such a special community here at Metrolina and I love being a part of this great family! I pray that you will have a great summer and make some incredible memories! Go Warriors!
