From your south campus principal, Grant Bickell
Local: An inhabitant of a particular area or neighborhood.
This week, I am no longer waiting on my test. I am COVID +. It was a weird thing to see the word Positive on a piece of paper and for it to mean so much. My kids will be out if school for at least another week, we haven’t left the house other than for a quick drive around the block, and we have had Walmart Delivery here what seems like 4,396 times. (Well maybe only 4 or 5 but it feels like a lot.) We also felt loved. We had friends, students, and families reach out to check in on us and to process how we are doing and asking if we needed anything.
The house we live in now is the 7th house and 6th city we have lived in, though the first four were all relatively close together. There comes a moment when we move when we finally feel settled in. I actually look for two things to make us finally feel like locals.
Here they are:
1. We see someone at the store we know.
2. We have some life event happen and realize we have no family around to help with it.
As my time in quarantine is coming to an end, I wanted to say thank you. Thank you for your prayers this week for my family. Thank you for your grace for me this year. Thank you for loving us well. We are so thankful to be here and are excited to already be planning for the 2021-2022 school year. Go Griffins!

With 90% of our current students already enrolled for next year, join me in praying for the Lord’s hand of favor to be upon us as we look to grow our campus. If you have any enrollment questions, feel free to reach out to Lindy Beswick at firstname.lastname@example.org. For the first time in a while, we will have waitlists at South Campus. If you are holding out until later, I suggest starting soon to guarantee your spot!
We are looking to hire for 2021-2022
