I pray that all of our families have had a great summer making memories together. We are excited that in just over a week our halls will once again be filled with students. We have prayed and worked hard as a faculty and staff to prepare for a great 2016-2017 school year.
As you will quickly see, Phase 2 of the Limitless Building Campaign is under construction. This new classroom building should be complete before Thanksgiving and ready to occupy. This building will house our visual art classes as well as other high school classes.
The Limitless Building Campaign will continue to call upon God to move on His people so that we can not only pay off Phase 2 but also begin the work on Phase 3 which will be a new addition to our Family Life Center which will house our Performing Arts and Student Life Center. I ask that you pray about how might give to help accomplish these projects.
As well, our new outdoor physical education space is now complete and ready for use this school year. This fields will not only provide us great playing fields for physical education but also serve as a beautiful starting point for our Cross Country course. These fields and outdoor recreation areas are located in the back of our parking lot behind the school office. I hope you will stop by and check out this new addition to our campus.
We have an incredible school year planned with many school improvements. For one, many new electives have been added to our high school schedule. These electives include new college course offerings, technology offerings, and more. Also, foreign language has been added all the way through our lower school program.
I am also very excited about our staff for 2016-2017 as we have added several great new additions to our wonderful staff. Our enrollment growth has enabled us to add several teachers to facilitate new classes. I look forward to you meeting our new staff members.
In addition, we have planned one of the most exciting chapel schedules in our history with great speakers such as Brent Crowe and Sean McDowell who will be with us this year. I invite you to join us for chapel this year as it is truly the highlight of our week.
Will you begin praying now for our school to experience God as never before? Metrolina is truly a distinctive Christian school and we desire to be forever about asking God to do what only He can do in our midst and when He does that we will be careful to give Him all the glory! God has big things in store for us this school year and I look forward to seeing you soon at Orientation. Go Warriors!
