Seniors will be able to order graduation announcements and other graduation paraphernalia when Jostens comes on Tuesday, October 28. The representatives will be here at homeroom and also lunch and after school.
Daylight Saving Time ends in the wee morning hours of Sunday, November 2. Don't forget to set your clocks BACK an hour.
Thanks to all of our wonderful students, parents, teachers, and support staff who made our first quarter go so smoothly. We in education are blessed to have multiple opportunities to start over or begin again each year.
The first quarter is now history—already filed away. With the start of a new quarter, though, students have the perfect opportunity to turn over a new leaf.
Please let me know if you have questions or concerns. It would also be great for you to send your child to ask those questions himself.
I am thankful for each family that is part of the Harding family, and I know we are going to have a great second quarter and a great year.
Harding Academy's Institute for Faith and the Arts brings Reconcile (aka Ronnie Lillard) to the stage in Emmons Auditorium on Friday, October 24 (8:00-8:45 a.m.). Reconcile is a Christian rapper.
Ronnie Lillard aka Reconcile was born and raised in Ft. Myers, Florida, an area where a football scholarship is deemed a one-way ticket to a better life. Later Reconcile was awarded a full football scholarship to Rice University. Here he became heavily involved in campus ministry and met his present mentor, P.T. Ngwolo.
Reconcile, now 24 years old, holds a bachelor of arts in religious studies, philosophy, and sociology from Rice University. He is currently pursuing a masters in Christian counseling. Reconcile is a husband and father. He and his family live in inner city Houston where he and his wife serve the Lord by serving their community and their church (resurrectionhouston.org) mentoring young adults and youth in various low-income areas.
