While these winter months have been pretty dreary, Seeds of Faith Christian Academy has kept busy.
Coaches Corydon Metcalf and Lauren Bieda and their teams have completed their basketball season. The Varsity and Mixed JV and Elementary teams have all worked incredibly hard this season. The University team ended the season with a one-day tournament in Derry. It’s been a great season for Seeds of Faith, even with all the trials they’ve had with the weather and the COVID-19 cases early on. They worked hard to finish strong and it paid off. Athletes are looking forward to next year’s basketball season.
In addition to sporting events with SFCA, the high school choir class sang at various religious events. Zion Lutheran Church held an Ash Wednesday service where a few students from the SFCA choir class sang alongside the church choir. It was a great experience for the students and the choir looks forward to events that may occur in the future.
Even with the darkest months of the year, Seeds of Faith is always busy. Students and staff are shedding light during dark times, and it looks like a bright future for Seeds of Faith Christian Academy.
The SFCA recently enjoyed the blessings of Creekside United Methodist Church. For its January missionary project, the church gathered information from teachers, then purchased and delivered many items for use in the classroom. Some of the things that have been donated are yellow beanbags for preschool, a laminated map of Pennsylvania, magnetic letters to use for word and sentence construction, dry erase markers and supplies, boxes to pencils already filled with classroom tools and a supply of watercolor paper for Mr. Tim Johnson. They also donated bottled water and microwaveable lunch items for emergency use, among many other needed items. All Seeds of Faith students and staff are very grateful to have received these items. Thank you so much, Creekside United Methodist Church!
Mrs. Susan Wilson’s Grade Four class will again perform the Easter Message, ‘What Jesus Came to Do’, at 6.30pm on Friday April 8 at the Academy at 181 Hudson Road, Creekside. Fifth and sixth graders will join fourth graders in presenting this profound message that will surely bless everyone.
Mrs. Marissa Bruno’s high school orchestra will perform their spring concert that evening after the brief drama. Mrs. Jeniece Duchon will also be exhibiting many works of art created by her students and the Parent Teacher Foundation will be serving refreshments. So bring your family, friends and neighbors and join Seeds of Faith for an evening of fellowship as we prepare for the Easter season. You will be blessed!
Johnson recently had two special classes with third grade, teaching basic techniques for watercolor painting. The students enjoyed working with Mr. Johnson, an artist who told the students he started studying watercolor painting in his 40s. He encouraged students to “mess around” and enjoy creating something beautiful.
Mrs. Rachel Partida returned this week from a trip to see her family in Mexico. Ms. Partida continued to meet her Spanish lessons virtually during the trip. Students got first-hand insight into life in Mexico, met people and pets, and “walked” the streets and roads to see the real life of our neighbors to the south. Welcome back, Ms. Partida, and thank you for sharing your journey with us!
