TBS Nation,

Good morning and welcome to Tuesday.  I hope you all are rested and ready for the day.  I am excited for tomorrow night as we give away our school awards.  Some have asked why it is so early in the year?  We positioned it here because most of the academic year is finished so we are able to solidify GPA and other academic awards.  Also, WACS and Athletics are long done.  Classroom awards are also completed and we are able to enjoy the success of students.  One final reason is that our ministry is between Awana and our summer programs.  If this has caught you by surprise we apologize….our intentions are not to inconvenience but rather celebrate the accomplishments of the students and staff this year.
For those wondering about Graduation this year we will have that on the Evening of Thursday, May 25th @ 7:00pm.  Both Kindergarten and High School Graduation will be the same night in the same ceremony!
Today is a day to revel in the goodness of God.  I am constantly reminded that we must do this in order to get through the tough times.  I do believe that there are things that God places in our lives to challenge us and to make us lean and trust Him more.  Many of you have been examples to me because of the circumstances you have gone through or are currently navigating.  I am constantly amazed at the people that God has placed in my life both here and afar that teach me by example.  Thank you for that.
I also want to thank teachers of TBS for their efforts this year.  Teachers have major responsibilities with these young people and there are only few with the patience to do it.  Kimberly Krause, Lin Leeds, Sarah Leeds, Doug Hanback, Beth Braker, Amy Braker, Jan Martin, Dan Leeds along with volunteers have been the backbone of our school this year.  There are none better than these no matter what anybody says in my mind.  THANK YOU!
