Parent Letter Re: Chapel Schedule and Student of the Month

November 30th, 2016

Dear Parents:

I trust you had a great Thanksgiving and I’m sure you are looking forward to the upcoming Christmas holidays. As we head into this season, plans are well underway for our annual Christmas program which will be held on Thursday evening, December 15th, at 6:30. This note is to inform you that due to the rehearsals for the program, we are forced to make a schedule change involving chapel service and student of the month recognition:

There will be no chapel service on Wednesday, December 14th, but we will recognize our students of the month at 9:00 a.m. in the auditorium, just before rehearsal.

As always, we invite you to join us if you’re able as we award these exceptional students. Please call me if you have any questions.

On a related note, we are in need of refreshments for the fellowship following the program. If you are willing and able to provide a batch of homemade cookies, please place them on the island in the kitchen and label them Christmas Program when you drop your child off on Thursday morning, the 15th. Thank you in advance!

In Christ,

Jason Taylor, M.Ed.
Assistant Principal

Kingdom Education

As you prepare to enroll your children for the 2016-2017 school year, here are the questions* that should guide your decision:

1. Is the education of your child following the principles of
Christ or the traditions of this world?

2. How has the postmodern teaching concerning the denial of absolute truth impacted your life and the lives of your children?

3. Is the importance of your child’s education merely academic or are you looking for the education of your child to also be based on the truth of God’s Word?

4. Do your children have a firm foundation giving them support in the education that they are receiving at home, church, and school?

At Salem Sayers Baptist Academy, it’s about more than academic training—we believe in Kingdom education—training up children to grow in the knowledge of His word, to love
the Lord God their Creator, and to walk with the Lord Jesus Christ on a day to day
basis. Our prayer is that when our students would grow to adulthood, they will not leave Him but grow old with Him! Please prayerfully consider join us in building Kingdom children for His glory.

Call to enroll your child today.

Trusting in our Creator,

Mrs. Nancy Allen

End of School Year Picnic – Landa Park


Our kindergarten through 7th grade students enjoyed an end of the school year picnic at Landa Park in New Braunfels today.  Thanks to Mrs. Flynn, who spearheaded the operation from start to finish and to each parent who helped to make this field trip an enjoyable success.  Special appreciation goes out to the Cervenka’s and the Palmer family for taking care of food and transportation needs. The ribs were killer!
