Good News from Koinonia Academy
Some recent and future good happenings at Koinonia Academy:
Special congratulations to our fine Pre K teacher, Kerry Kerrick. Miss Kerrick has completely confused her little ones by getting married on St. Patrick’s Day. Now the Pre K students are trying to figure out who Mrs. Berti is. God bless the newlyweds.
The annual Irish Pub Night was be held in the Weyand Gym on Saturday, March 17. Well over 100 family members, alumni and guests enjoyed the music of Chris and Mike Temple. Many, many thanks to all who worked so hard to make the evening a success: Donna Bunsa and Pam Keller and the team of volunteers, table sponsors, folks who donated the great raffles and all the benefactors of the night. God bless you all.
Tomorrow March 23rd, over 50 of our high school students will be attending the YES retreat in Michigan. The retreat will bring together between 400 and 500 young people for a weekend of prayer, teaching and fun. Please pray for the success of the retreat and for safe travels for all.
The Koinonia Academy Concert Choir will be on the annual evangelistic tour from April 16 to April 23. This year the choir will be away from school, but will return to our local area for concerts. We want to share the blessings of the tour with local audiences and help our enrollment and fundraising efforts in the local area. We’ll be getting the itinerary out shortly; please encourage folks to attend one of the concerts.
The Student Council has proposed a club volleyball program for the 2012-2013 school year. The carefully made proposal was enthusiastically received by the school staff and plans go ahead. We will have a couple of trial run volleyball activities this spring to test interest. (The Junior Girls are sponsoring a volleyball night on April 14 as a fund raiser for their spring trip – we’re hoping that a number of students and parents can come.)
This year’s 5K Run will be held on Saturday, April 28, in the Great Swamp, Long Hill Township – save the date and invite a runner. We’re challenging all the students to see how many participants they can recruit; we’re also challenging them to finish well ahead of the headmaster (those who do sign his running shirt for display in the link).
More good news next week.
