last day of school

Hey guys. How are you doing?

It's finally here. The official last day of school. Whew. school is over. home-schooling is OVER !! time to celebrate.

Seriously, this is a time for us as a school family to celebrate. And we DO have much to be thankful for.

This is just a partial list. I'm sure I will miss some people and things and if/when I do there was no disrespect intended.

1. The transition of our new HOS Mr. Ricabal. 2. Our amazing students and their families that make up our larger Falcon Family. 3. my awesome colleagues that I have the honor of working with everyday. 4. my homeroom students, especially those that showed up faithfully on zoom the last few months. 5. THE END ! of this school year. 6. the official start of Summer (NO the Summer did NOT begin back in March as some would have you believe !!) 7. last but not least, our Falcon seniors, moving on to new challenges wherever their journeys take them.

To everyone, enjoy your Summer, be safe, keep moving and may peac…

Hey guys, How is everyone doing.

Join me at 10 on our zoom meeting for a chapel message from Marissa Lee !!

Mothers Day

Hey guys. How is everyone doing?

Earlier today (after sending wishes and greetings to my own mother and sister) I sent Mother's day wishes to my awesome female colleagues.

Now, I would like to wish all of the mom's out there a very special Mother's day. You may not have gotten your brunch at Cafe 121 or lunch at your favorite restaurant. Hopefully you got pancakes or eggs served breakfast in bed; or you sat down to a special lunch. Somehow someway I hope you were shown the appreciation you deserve. Especially these last 8-10 weeks when you have had to juggle even more duties than "normal".

It is a shame that the mom's only get "one day" on the second Sunday in May. As children we should show our love and appreciation for our mother's every day. A mother's unconditional love is second only to the love our father and our savior have for us.

As we pray tonight, let us all give thanks to the mothers in our lives wherever they may be. The love an…

It's almost time for chapel. Homeroom students you should have received an email with meeting info in it.

I will try to share the link below.

Chapel Friday May 8

We had a good group today and it was good to be able to once again discuss our speaker's message.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. Enjoy the gorgeous weather. Get up, get out, get moving. I'm off to visit my Mom. Which reminds me, I will be back on here on Sunday for a very special message to all the mothers out there. (I Will bring you an update on the happenings in "Mayberry". )

peace be with you

Happy Star Wars Day !!

Hey guys. How are you doing?

  Who had a good weekend? How many of you took advantage of this great weather and got outside?? Today is also supposed to be amazing outside. Get out and take advantage of the opportunity. I mean how much could there possibly be left for you to watch on netflix anyway!!

  First off, big thank you to Mrs Williams for introducing us to Francis Chan. What an excellent message he had for us Friday. Did anyone else look at some of his other videos over the weekend? If we can take a positive out of "stay at home", hopefully it is a re-connection with our personal relationship with God as well as with our families and loved ones.

  Hope everyone has a good week. Get up, get out, and get moving.

  and as always, May the 4ce be with you !!

OK guys. More technical difficult…

Mile day Monday

Hey guys. Good morning. How are you doing?

I just got back from my own run this morning. Wow! Looks like another beautiful day here in North Carolina (aka "God's country"). This is another day that I "suggest" you get outside and get moving and do something.

Use your outside time (if you are alone) to talk to God and just be thankful for the blessings we have. This time to connect with family (as well as our heavenly Father). The gift of such a beautiful day. The "ability" to use technology to stay in touch with others. The loved ones and family that we've gotten closer too (and on each others nerves !!).

If this pandemic and subsequent stay at home has taught us anything, I think one of the things we all have is an appreciation for the things we miss and took for granted. Freedom to come and go. The ability to participate in the activities we love and enjoy. 

Therefore, when you have your next conversation with God, don't forget to offer than…
