July has flown by yet again, which means it is time to begin getting ready for the 2019-20 school year! We are looking forward to another year of personal growth here at Dakota Christian School for our entire family as we learn about God, His world, and His plan for His children.
Our theme for this year is “Deep. Real. Fierce.” The theme verse comes from Romans 11:33, which says, “Oh the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God.” Students and staff will be challenged to go deeper in their faith, acknowledge that life has trouble and hardship, and to fight for what is right and good in God’s eyes. Each month of the school year will highlight an attribute of God or a gift to his people and encourage us as his children to grow in our knowledge and understanding of God in that area. A parable of Jesus will also be underscored each month to illustrate God’s amazing richness in terms we can better understand!
The intent of this letter is to inform you of registration times for the 2019-2020 school year. Registration will be Monday, August 5th and Tuesday, August 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Please come to the office and Mrs. Vander Pol or I will be glad to register your student(s) at that time. If, for some reason, none of these times work for you, please call the office and set up a time to meet with Mrs. Vander Pol or me. We look forward to seeing you!
On Thursday, August 15th, we will host an open house and potluck supper! Supper will begin at 6:30 p.m. and last until 7:15, when we will begin a game of ultimate kickball. Please bring a salad, dessert, or hot dish to share, as well as lawn chairs or blankets to use, as we will be eating outside. You may also simply join us later to play kickball. We encourage students and parents to use this evening to meet teachers, find lockers, bring in supplies. Schedules for secondary students will also be available if you did not receive one during registration. Please come with any questions you might have.
We look forward to seeing you during registration and the open house!
Mr. Jeremy Boer
