It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school year at Gethsemane Christian Academy. I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities enjoyed at a leisurely pace under beautiful, blue skies filled with sunshine. How quickly summer concludes and our thoughts turn to eagerly preparing for another school year. This is always one of my favorite times of the year! I love the excitement of beginning each new school year welcoming our new families and students and catching up with great summer stories and memories with returning families and students.
Our first event of the new school year will be a Meet and Greet on Monday, August 6th from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. in our school cafeteria. The intent is to allow children accompanied by parents to meet their teacher, learn about the activities and organizations and drop off their classroom supplies. We hope that this short visit will help children feel more comfortable beginning the first day of school. Students and families may then join us for refreshments while visiting informational tables about our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO), fundraising activities, student organizations and volunteer opportunities. You can purchase your uniforms at Young Fashions. (2722 Kaliste Saloom Road—337-988-3600). Uniform Policy: Girls-Prekindergarten-6th grade--plaid jumpers or skirts with the white top. Boys: Blue pants, uniform blue shirt with logo.
The first day of school will begin Wednesday, August 8th at 8:00 a.m. All students in grades prekindergarten through six will meet in the cafeteria for prayer before proceeding to class.
The staff and I welcome you to another wonderful school year and look forward to seeing families and students very soon! If you have any questions, call 233-2750 Ext 1 for secretary and Ext 2 for principal.
