May Head of School Update & Hurricane Watch Newsletter

Greetings, First Baptist Community!

As we approach the final stretch of the academic year, I am filled with gratitude for the journey we have undertaken together this year. May is always a bustling month, teeming with activities and responsibilities as we prepare to conclude another successful school year.

We have once again enjoyed so many of our spring traditions at FBS. Some of the timeless favorites include The Very Hungry Caterpillar play, presented by our Pre-K and Kindergarten classes, the National Junior Honor Society Induction, Prom, the Middle School Dance, Music Department Concerts, the Spring Dance Showcase, and the High School Art Show. We now shift our gaze to the finish line, so quickly approaching. 

Our students will soon embark on their final examinations, putting into practice all the knowledge and skills they have acquired throughout the year. It's crucial that they approach this period with diligence and determination, as their hard work will undoubtedly yield fruitful results. In addition to exams, many classes will be wrapping up their end-of-year projects and presentations, showcasing the culmination of their learning experiences. These endeavors are a testament to the dedication and creativity of our students and teachers alike.

One of the most significant milestones of the academic year is the high school graduation ceremony, scheduled for May 31st in the First Baptist Church Sanctuary. Seating is limited and tickets will be required for admission. This hallmark event is a celebration of our seniors' achievements and a poignant moment as they transition into the next chapter of their lives beyond FBS. We look forward to commemorating their accomplishments and bidding them farewell with fond memories and best wishes.

As we navigate through the flurry of activities yet to come in May, let us not forget the importance of reflection and gratitude. We read in Ecclesiastes 7:8 (NIV), "The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride." This verse reminds us to cherish the journey, to celebrate endings as well as beginnings, and to approach each moment with humility and perseverance. 

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in our school community. Together, let us finish this academic year with a sense of accomplishment and anticipation for the possibilities that lie ahead.

We invite you to stay up-to-date with current events by following First Baptist School’s social media and our school webpage. #WeAreFB

Be Blessed!
