Kingdom Values Are Upside Down From The World’s Values By Principal Jen Wenger

Kingdom values are upside down from the world’s values is a statement that is often made by the pastor of our church. This has also become a mantra in the Wenger home.

First Grade Festival

We were blessed with a special Thanksgiving performance at Chapel from our first-grade class.

They re-enacted how the men and women showed bravery, grit, and sacrifice that were fueled by their reliance on Almighty God. The students worked diligently in preparing for the festival and did a wonderful job! Thank you to and all the parents who helped with costumes, props, speech practice, and the delicious feast!

House Kickball Competition

Arma Dei Houses compete every Thursday in either an academic or athletic category. This week's kickball competition, Avari and Laiquendi were victorious over Noldor and Vanyar respectively. Noldor House, however, earned points for good sportsmanship. They created and raised signs to support Vanyar, Laiquendi and Avari when those Houses took the field! Several 8th-grade leaders earned additional points for their houses by ensuring that younger members of their house were included in the contest and had an opportunity to kick the ball before older students took turns. As always, House competition ended with students singing the first catechism question and answer,…
