Our lunch program will be adjusting beginning November 1st.   As we provided feedback to our current caterer, they were diligent in making changes as they want to provide our students a quality lunch.  However, we know that it is a desire of many of our students to get back the options we had last year. We put a lot of time and effort into getting our lunch services as there are a lot of logistics involved.

Our lunch program will now be the following:

         Monday: Pizza Hut (Cheese or Pepperoni Personal Pan Pizza and a side) $4.75

         Tuesday: Current Caterer $4.75/ $5.75/ $6.25

         Wednesday: Whataburger (Whataburger, Whataburger w/ Cheese. or 3 chicken strips w/ medium fries) $5.75

         Thursday: Orange Chicken and Chow Mein or White Rice or Teriyaki Chicken and Chow Mein or White Rice $5

         Friday: Current Caterer $4.75/ $5.75/ $6.25

Our partners have shown that they are available to handle our school with their current workforce.  Should things change, we will notify you at that time and make adjustments as necessary.  We are hopeful that these changes will be good ones for our families.   Remember, your child is always welcome to bring a lunch to school. The November lunch menu can be found on the website and one will be coming home next week. 









Expressing the​​ Abundance of​​ God’s​​ Love,​​ Encouragement, and​​ Salvation

FBA is partnering with our community to build holiday baskets for our neighbors in need. ​​ These baskets will be distributed right here in the Greater Randolph Area.

Our goal is to help build 50 or more baskets. ​​ Alone, this would be a big task, but together we can meet our goal.

We ask that you find your child’s grade and send in the item to the classroom teacher. ​​ We only ask that you bring the item listed, but if you desire to do more please do! ​​ At the same time, we also know that not everyone is able to donate and we completely understand. ​​ This is a volunteer project only. ​​ 


The deadline​​ to turn in items​​ is: Friday, November 12, 2021

K3 and K4:2 cans evaporated milk

K5:  2 cans of fruit cocktail

1st: 2 cans of cranberry sauce

2nd: 2 cans of sweet potatoes

3rd: 2 cans of chicken broth

4th: 2 bags of brown sugar

Students have freedom in the choice of content. The work does not have to be spiritual in nature, but we encourage a spiritual application, if appropriate. Please​​ avoid potentially offensive themes​​ that include racial slurs, deal with the occult (witchcraft, ghosts, haunted houses, etc.), or have excessive fantasy, sexual innuendos, vulgar themes, excessive violence, and bathroom humor. A student may, however, choose one of these areas—ghosts, haunted houses, excessive fantasy, sexual innuendos, vulgar themes, or bathroom humor—and deal with it in a positive, biblical manner. Questionable material will be returned and will not be judged.​​

The personalities may be of any​​ era. The story may be, but is not limited to, fantasy, mystery, or comedy. It may also be true to life.
