Dear Parents,

We are off to a great start for the 2022-23 school year! What a blessing it is to see so many smiling faces in the classrooms and hallways. We are excited to see how the Lord will bless our NE campus this year!

Here are a few reminders for this week:

Tuesday Folders:  Please check your child’s backpack weekly on Tuesdays as these folders have lots of information you will want to review.

Afterschool Clubs: Ben Lippen Lower School is pleased to offer several extra-curricular opportunities for our students. Please see the flyers located in your child’s folder for registration information. Clubs for the NE campus include Soccer Shots(PK4-K5), ACRO (PK4-2nd), Karate (ages 5 and up), BL Athletics Youth Development Soccer (1st-2nd).

Chapel: Our first chapel service will begin tomorrow morning Wednesday, August 17th at 8:30am in the theater.

Parent Night: This event will be held Monday, August 22nd. This is a “parent only” evening for you to have an opportunity to hear from your child’s teacher about the upcoming school year.
