I hope everyone did well on the 9 weeks tests this week.  Science was held on Monday, Social Studies on Tuesday, Electives (Art, Music, Accounting, etc.) on Wednesday, English on Thursday and Math on Friday.  I hope everyone got plenty of rest and studied hard.

This week’s verse is: “Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.” Romans 4:7

Thought for the week:  Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Personal Savior today?
