From your midtown campus principal, Rhonda Jones

Parents and students, we made it! We successfully finished the semester with in-person learning present and accounted for in the lives of our students. Praise the Lord for his daily mercies and abounding grace. For those of you who have lived the entirety of this semester as a TAO family, you are in my daily prayers, as I know long-term online learning and quarantining comes with a myriad of demotivating challenges. Know that you have my support and I welcome you to reach out and share tangible ways that I can collaborate with you to ease these pressures for next semester.

May you all enjoy this 3 week break. May your time be filled with moments of joy and connection with family.

May your hearts be filled with the peace and presence of our sweet Lord as you pause and celebrate the beauty of this Advent season. I hope to see your students afresh on January 11th! 

In this Advent of expectation

draw us together in unity,

that our praise and worship

might echo in these walls

and also through our lives.

In this Advent of expectation

draw us together in mission,

that the hope within

might be the song we sing,

and the melody of our lives.

In this Advent of expectation

draw us together in service,

that the path we follow

might lead us from a stable

to a glimpse of eternity.
