What’s Brewing with Mr. Billman February 16th
Plan to join us for some coffee and discussion about what is coming up 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!
Shepherding a Child’s Heart Book Club starts tomorrow
We’ll meet after chapel at 8:30 in the library meeting room Tuesdays: Feb. 7, March 7, March 28, and April 11. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you are coming. Book cost is $10 or you may provide your own.
Grass on the South Lawn
You may have noticed that the grass on the south lawn, near the chapel entrance, is about worn out. As we head into Spring, we’d like to give the grass a chance to grow back, so we’re asking that students not play on this grass, including after school.
Stay & Play this Thursday
Younger siblings of Providence students are invited to come with their parent to play on the school playground after morning chapel from 8:30 till 9:30. (Weather Permitting)
The early enrollment period has now ended and we are accepting applications from new families. If you have not returned your enrollment commitment and you are planning to return next year, please let us know immediately so we don’t give your spot away. Providence is committed to small class sizes and some sections will close early.
“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! email@example.com
Box Tops Reminder
The deadline for submitting Tops is Friday, February 24th. The current Lower School leader is Mrs. Wagner’s class with 114 Tops. Augustine House leads the Upper School with 210. The winning classes will have an ice cream social and the Upper School winner will also accumulate House points. Please keep clipping for a few more weeks!

SING: Hymn of the week:
Focus Country of the Week: Ecuador
Challenges for prayer: In particular, let’s pray this week for the slum-dwellers of Quito and Guayaquil. Over 60% of the latter’s population are extremely poor, and many live in slums built on a polluted marsh. Few Christian workers have a vision for these deprived people.
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.
1 Cor. 13: (1) If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. (2) If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. (3) If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing. (4) Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (5) It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. (6) Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (7) It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (8a) Love never fails.
