Congratulations to our very own WARRIOR, Ashlyn Woody who earned the Silver Star award in Girl Scouts. The Silver Star award is the highest award a Cadette can receive. In order to earn her Silver Star Award, she worked with Senior Citizens at a retirement community. The grounds are under going landscape remodeling. To help the seniors feel a part of the planning she organized and planned a rock garden activity for them where they designed rocks and place them in areas and got mums for their patios. COVID has limited activities for the seniors so this project helped to boost their physical and mental health. Ashlyn is currently involved in North Region Honor Guard and is also serving in the community and Veterans. She is Captain this weekend and will be doing opening ceremonies with the Honor Guard for the National Anthem at the Mud Hens game Sunday, 9-19-21. She will also travel to Wolverine Lake, MI on October 9, 2021 to do a flag ceremony and pack over 1,000 care packages for military and participate in Wreaths Across America in December placing wreaths on Veterans graves. Ashlyn now moves up to start earning the highest High School award - the Gold Star. Congratulations Ashlyn...we are so proud of you!

A big shout and thank you to Olympic Bronze Medalist Oshae Jones who took time out of her busy schedule to be the the special SHOW and TELL guest of her niece, Isabella Sims in Mrs. Winslow's class. Oshae is a true WARRIOR! She lost a lot of her possessions in a fire just 30 days prior to the Olympics...and yet she went, competed, and earned a medal. Thank you Oshae for spending time with us!

Lego Robotics is back! Lego Robotics is the EC team that competes in the First Lego League where students take a hands-on approach to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The students gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided global robotics program. Friendly competition is at the heart of the League Challenge, as teams of students in grades 7 and 8 engage in research, problem-solving, coding, and engineering in order to build and program a Lego robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. All students in grades 7 and 8 are eligible to participate. Student sign-up sheets are in Mr. Miller's classroom. Practices will be two days a week, starting on 9-17-2021 at 3:30pm. Going forward, we are tentatively planning on Fridays from 3:30-5:30pm and Saturday mornings from 10am to 12pm. Look for details on a parent meeting to get all of the pertinent details.

Resources to GROW in September! Book Recommendation: Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life by Donald Whitney https://www.lifeway.com/en/articles/spiritual-disciplines-gospel-solitude-donald-whitney Articles: The Gospel and Solitude: What does the Bible Say About Patience? https://www.gotquestions.org/Bible-patience.html Video: The Beat by Allen Parr https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QetW5Czec5A
Our theme this year is "Making the Most", based on Ephesians 5:15-16. Each month, the WARRIOR community will emphasize an avenue of grace and a character quality to encourage students to "make the most". The avenues of grace train students on how to grow. The character qualities demonstrate the result of growth. In September, TK-12th grade students will focus on the practice of solitude (avenue of grace); additionally the gospel will be preached at every chapel. Biblical solitude takes place when Christians intentionally carve out moments with God. Even Jesus "often withdrew to lonely places and prayed" (Luke 5:16). Next we will focus on patience (character quality) which occurs when one remains steadfast and faithful to God under the challenges of life. Please pray that our high school students will learn more about "Making the Most" at their fall retreat this week and that God will use these moments to transform our community.
The Littles soccer season has arrived! Practices start next week for all teams (K-5th). Parents! please check your email for specific details on your Little's team, practice days, and times. The game schedule will be shared as soon as we receive it from WLSC. Let's go WARRIORS!

Our students are so creative! Olivia George made our library out of legos, complete with a scanner for the books, a window that opens to a book return, and a "swinging gate" to keep people from going behind the desk, ! Thanks you to Mrs. Blackford for encouraging their creativity!!
