Dear FBA Family,
I would like to personally thank you for choosing Kingdom Education for your child/ren. I cannot tell you how excited I am to see our students back in school! We returned on June 1st, and began our summer program, which has been going wonderfully. We have also started athletic clinics with the proper safety precautions, and they too have been successful. We are well on our way to begin the 2020-2021 academic school year on campus!
Our theme this academic year may be found in Numbers 6:24-26, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” It is the desire of our school that the Father uses each of us as a channel to bless our students and their families beyond measure and that we protect, reassure, and support you! Our song for this year is The Blessing, please click on the link to hear the song for this year and share it with your family:
We are putting many practices in place so that we can attend school in a safe yet practical way. We began these practices with our summer program and will continue to implement them throughout the summer and school year. Please read the Health and Safety Plan in PraxiSchool under Resources to find the guidelines we will be following.
In alignment with our Health and Safety Plan, we will not be hosting an in-person Parent Night for Preschool-12th grade or a New Parent Orientation this year. Instead, you will be receiving this information by video and it will be emailed to you on Wednesday, August 12th.
In addition, we will be limiting guests for our first day of school, Back to School Night, held on Monday, August 17th from 3:00 -6:15 p.m. This is a time where you will bring your child/ren to meet their teacher as well as their school supplies. To ensure the success of this day, each student will receive a passport in their classroom to guide you through the stations that you should visit. On your last stop, you will submit the passport to the Parent Auxiliary, where you will be entered into a drawing for $50.00 towards your account. You will need to pick a time slot through “Sign-up Genius” using the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E084EA8AA2BA1FB6-back
Just a few reminders:

Finally, please be sure to read the attached link of summer letters very carefully. In this packet you will find important dates, times and agendas that will be needed in order to make the start to the academic school year a success.
We are looking forward to seeing all the returning and new families! Thank you for partnering with First Baptist Academy.
In His Service,
Christine M. Povolish
