December Update from Head of School, Jeremy Blackstock

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving break last week and are well rested to finish the semester strong! We have a busy month, so be sure to check our website and calendar for all the events we have going on in December. We will also be sending out information soon on re-enrollment for the 2020-2021 school year.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the holidays and the end of the year, let's not forget the true reason we have to celebrate this season:

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the LORD Almighty will accomplish this." Isaiah 9:6-7

We are blessed to know this truth as we enter the Christmas season. We are thankful for our First Baptist family and hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas and joyous New Year.

God Bless and Go Canes!

Jeremy Blackstock, Head of School
