A snapshot of the Rhetoric School formal banquet, which was held in the backyard of the Barnetts’ home. The students conducted themselves with a great deal of dignity and poise. The students then journeyed to the McAllister home for more fun and games.
Thanks for the Formal!
Thank you to all of our parents and friends who helped with our spring formal last Friday. All of your gifts and efforts came together in a truly blessed event. You’re the best!
The second annual "ProvFit Games" are upon us! Come watch as 21 competitors from across the four houses exhibit their fitness levels in a rigorous two-day test of strength, stamina, speed, endurance, agility, balance, accuracy, flexibility, power, coordination, and, most significantly, fortitude. Most events will remain unknown to the competitors until game time, and they will differ from last year's events. The mystery is part of the fun!
Day 1 of competition consists of two events, run in multiple heats, and will be held in the First Baptist Church Belton gym as immediately after school as possible and is scheduled to be over on or before 6pm.
Day 2 events will be held during the afternoon portion of Springfest.
Athletes will be striving hard for house points in this competition, so come support your favorite house, or your favorite athlete, or both!
Tuesday, April 19 at 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.: the 7th-9th grade spring play Knights of the Rad Table will be performed in the FBC Chapel. Tickets are $3.00. (Gwen and Artie are just typical modern teenagers… Until Merlin wakes up from a 1500 year snooze to whisk them away to the days of chivalry! You'll see brave Knights, fair maidens, Morgan La Fey, and even a dragon. Come enjoy the fun!)
Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 30 at 7 p.m.: the 9th-12th grade spring play The Shadow of Life will be performed in the FBC Chapel. Tickets are $3.00. This play is based on the C.S.Lewis book The Great Divorce and has been adapted for the stage by Bret Billman. The story is about a group of ghostly travelers who embark on a supernatural bus journey to the “foothills” of heaven, where they witness a series of encounters that consider good and evil, grace and judgment. C.S. Lewis says, "Good, as it ripens, becomes continually more different not only from evil but from other good… If we insist on keeping Hell (or even earth) we shall not see Heaven: if we accept Heaven we shall not be able to retain even the smallest and most intimate souvenirs of Hell."
Mason Price presents his “40-Hour” project last week. Each 9th – 12th grader gave a presentation after school — there were a number of excellent projects!
