At the beginning of each year the students are all divided into families. One or two eighth graders act as the family leaders. The rest of the family consists of one to three students from each grade depending on the number of students in each of the grades.
The families get together each month for a variety of activities. Some activities are church related, holiday related, school related (Red Ribbon Week) and for fun (line dancing together for ACES). At the end of the school year the families are our teams for our annual school wide Field Day.
This is a wonderful way for students to get to know each other, help grow in their faith, and enjoy the school year all that better!
