What’s Brewing with Mr. Billman February 16th
Plan to join us for some coffee and discussion about what is coming up at Providence in the next few months. We’ll meet in the gym from 8:20 – 9:00 a.m. This is a great time to connect with other co-teachers and ask questions. Hope to see you there!
Providence Prayer Team Meets February 21st
No tryouts necessary. All are welcome! We’ll meet in the library meeting room near the Pearl Street foyer after chapel for a time of scripture-based prayer for our teachers, students, and school.
Questions? Contact Amy Hale at email@example.com.
Please return re-enrollment forms to save your child’s spot for next year. As grade levels fill we will begin waiting lists. Pre-K is filled with a waiting list and a couple of other classes are close.
“How do I pay my registration fees?”
Glad you asked! The 2017-2018 registration fees are $400 for the first student, $200 for each additional student until March 21st, when the fees go up $50 per student. Fees are paid directly to the school by cash or check, and are NOT auto-drafted through FACTS. If you are paying monthly through FACTS, remember, no tuition will be drafted in the month of March to allow room in your budget for re-enrollment. Questions? Just ask! firstname.lastname@example.org

Spring Fest…March 31st!
The 2017 Upper School Heart the Cart fest, held on Friday, Feb. 10, was a truly awesome spectacle in honor of the humble cart, the Providence Upper School preferred mode of school supply conveyance. This year’s festival included rapturous odes and sonnets, including the 9th-12th winner John Fasolino’s epic poem saluting his trusty two-wheeled companion, Old Blue (5 pts for Augustine) and 5th-8th grade winner 5th grader Miriam Kellar’s song to carts, which she accompanied with ukulele (5 pts for Wilberforce). Mrs. Glenn designed an epic all-upper-school cart challenge course that was held during lunch; judges are still sorting out the results. And this year’s cart decorations included some of the best entries ever, as you can see below.
|1st Place “Salute to New Zealand”
Bella Murrah, 5th Grade
|2nd Place “Gotham City”
Cameron Stacey, 8th Grade
|3rd Place “Libby’s Frozen Yogurt”
Libby Smith, 6th Grade
|Honorable Mention “Wilbur-Force”
Jonathan Salmon, 5th Grade
Wilberforce House (the pig is the mascot of Wilberforce)
SING: Hymn of the week: What Wondrous Love is This
Focus Country of the Week: Guadeloupe
Challenge for prayer: The terrible legacy of slavery has left its mark in the constant and huge disparity (unevenness) between rich and poor, as well as in the lack of meaningful marriage relationships. Over 40% of households have only one parent; 90% of these are led by the mother. Racial tension and class envy are other marks left by slavery’s long history. Pray that the gospel may transform and uplift this society.
Scripture Memory: Romans 3:22b-23: There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
