The Shadow of Life

The 9th-12th grade spring play The Shadow of Life will be performed in the FBC Chapel on Friday, April 29 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 30 at 7 p.m.. Tickets are $3.00. This play is an “in-house” adaptation of the C.S.Lewis book, The Great Divorce. While some of the ideas / theology might be hard to understand for young children, we hope that you’ll come see the production that teachers Autumn McMurry and Krista Eshbaugh have led. It’s a unique look the eternal ideas of sin and redemption, grace and justice.

Graduation ‘16

On Friday, May 13, we will celebrate the graduation of our 7 seniors: Nathaniel Fasolino, Ryan Flanagan, Noah Jeter, Micah Martinez, Zak McAllister, Emily Parisi, and Tanner Sanderford. Each of these seven students will have met the high standards that a Providence diploma signifies, and we look forward to this evening with great anticipation.

All Providence families are invited, and we would love for you to celebrate with us! Commencement exercises will begin at 7 p.m. in the FBC Belton Main Sanctuary. A reception will follow in the gym. We will have a “money tree” stationed in the gym as an option if you would like to give money to the graduates (the total amount of the money tree will be split 7 ways).

Rising Senior Breakfast

On the last day of school, we have a tradition of celebrating the passage into the senior year. Our seniors are student leaders, and we’re grateful for the precedent that the classes of ‘15 and ‘16 have set. (To give one example out of many possibilities, senior Noah Jeter was awarded “Most Helpful Student” at Spring Fest.)

The Rising Senior Breakfast will be Thursday, May 12, after chapel, around 8:20, in room 258. This is an occasion where the parents of current Juniors are encouraged to attend if possible.

Spare Time: 5th-8th Grades

Celebrate the end of year with us by meeting us at Spare Time Bowling and Fun Center in Temple, May 6th from 4:00-5:45pm. Cost will be $10 for an hour of bowling and a game card.  Permission slips will be sent home this week.  Please return permission slips and payment – cash or checks to Providence – by next Thursday, May 5th so we can reserve enough lanes. Parents and siblings are the same cost. You may want to pack and eat a snack on your way over. Snacks are not included in this cost. Bring socks!

Finals Schedule (9th – 12th Grades)

9th – 12th Graders will have a different schedule for the last two days of school (Tuesday, May 10 and Thursday, May 12) to allot more time for final exams. The schedule, similar to the one we used in December, . Note that there is no early dismissal for any grades during Finals week.

Home-Day Labs in 2016-17

You may be in a situation where you could use assistance with homeschooling on home days. For this reason, Providence has instituted the home day “lab” program. In labs, students attend the school (8:30 – 2:55) in a small group of about 5 students of mixed grade levels. A teacher assists these students in completing their home-day assignments.

In 2016-17, for the first time, labs will be offered on Mondays in addition to Wednesday labs. This is an “either/or” arrangement, where students can enter labs for one of the two days, but not both. The cost for 2016-17 labs will be $1674 for the year.  If you are interested in Labs for the 2016-17 school year, please contact Mrs. Stafford at   These spots can fill quickly.
