SA Banquet – 1950’s Rollerskating Party

Student and staff enjoyed a fun evening of pizza and rollerskating at a rink in Watertown, thanks to the hard work of the student association officers led by Mr. Cantrell, Miss McWilliams, and Miss Mbungu. The theme was “The 1950’s.” There were skating races and limbo contests, rootbeer floats and a photo booth. As the old phrase goes, “A good time was had by all.” A large picture library is available on Facebook here.

Students Prepare Campus for Winter

Freezing temperatures are looming on the horizon, and so, during these last few days of autumn weather,  students on the grounds team have been helping prepare the campus for winter. They’ve been raking leaves, tearing out dying foliage, transplanting plants, putting in mulch, and helping plant bulbs. Over 750 bulbs were planted, including 300 donated by parent Artie Hamann. Snow will cover everything soon, but when spring comes, look for hundreds of tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, crocuses, and other flowers brightening the beds across our campus.

84 Lives Potentially Saved Through Fall Blood Drive

Students, staff, and community members donated 28 units of blood on Thursday, potentially saved 84 lives. Several  students donated for the first time. Students also volunteered registering donors, helping them feel comfortable, and providing snacks and water afterward. This American Red Cross blood drive was coordinated by science teacher Kelly McWilliams. A second blood drive is scheduled for this coming spring. Thanks to all the students and other personnel whose dedication made this drive a success and helped save many lives.

Sabbath at Point Beach

Last Sabbath we enjoyed a beautiful Sabbath at Point Beach State Forest near Two Rivers. Josue and Laura concluded their week of prayer series with a two part sermon on following Jesus. After a picnic, we hiked down the narrow Lake Michigan beach. The day ended with supper and Hallowed Moments on a grassy hillside as the sun sank low. It was a Sabbath not to be missed. Thank-you, Jesus!

Students Enjoy Beach and Dunes at Kohler-Andrae State Park

This last Sabbath afternoon we enjoyed the beach and dunes of Kohler-Andrae State Park near Sheboygan.

It was a beautiful day – warm enough to enjoy chasing waves on the narrow Lake Michigan beach. After a hike down the beach and back over the dunes, we had a picnic supper and Hallowed Moments led by Pastor Fetrick. We won’t soon forget his story about catching crocodiles in Africa.

We are very thankful for beautiful places in Wisconsin like this where we can enjoy God’s creation and be reminded of His incredible power.

Gibraltar, Merrimac, & Back

This past Sabbath afternoon, the entire school body hiked to the overlook at Gibraltar Rock State Natural Area near Lodi. The weather was fine and we could see quite a distance over the rolling green farmland.

After hiking back down, we visited the nearby Merrimac ferry and rode over the Wisconsin River and back as walk-on passengers.

During the temporary delay caused by the bus breaking down, we enjoyed the park and watched a beautiful sunset close a great Sabbath afternoon together.
