Fourth graders Lilli Looper and Ann Marie McNiff were inspired by Mrs. Titus' comment in chapel one week that "Fourth graders have great ideas." After hearing about the need for water filters in Haiti, the two entrepreneurs put their heads together and came up with a truly great idea. The girls put their talents to good use and created jewelry, stress bands and key chains from rainbow looms and then sold them to lower school students for $1 during Early Care on Wednesday, March 1. There was a such a high demand the girls sold again on Friday, March 3rd, raising their total to $122.72 for both days - that's enough money for 3 water filters for the people in Haiti! We're very proud of Lilli and Ann Marie!
Lower School Completes Great Kindness Challenge
To live out the Fruit of the Spirit emphasis on “kindness” in chapel last week and this week, Lower School students were given The Great Kindness Challenge checklist. Students completed acts of kindness throughout the week and received a total of 506 colorful paper chain links for completing certain percentages of the checklist. The chain link stretched from one end of the gym to the other and this only represented a fraction of the amount of kind acts that the students performed! 221 students received brag tags for participating and hundreds more were recipients of their acts of kindness! The kindness chain link strand is now hanging in the Lower School cafeteria to celebrate and continue to encourage kindness.

Biscuits for Bibles
The Middle School Student Government has a unique opportunity to partner with the Presbyterian Mission of America to buy Bibles for the Congo. An African country with a heart guided to God, the people of Congo are the poorest in the world. They face great difficulty in obtaining a precious Bible. In order to raise money to buy Bibles, Chick-fil-A chicken biscuits will be sold for $3 on Monday morning, March 13th. (Donations are accepted and exact change is preferred.) All money raised will go to the Presbyterian Mission of America, to buy Bibles for the Congo. Every $7 donated can buy a Bible for a deserving person. Bring your money, buy your biscuits, give a bible!

Anatomy with a Creative Twist
An original song, a children’s book, a painting, a “blood vessel” full of the various blood components, and a realistic 3-D model of the heat - these are just some of the projects that students chose to create during their circulatory system unit in Anatomy. As they studied the heart, blood, and blood vessels, students were tasked with selecting an area of interest, becoming an “expert,” and coming up with a creative way to share their knowledge with others. They did a tremendous job of unleashing their creativity!
