From the West Wing

So, Mrs. Reid asked me this morning if I am going to write articles for the Eagle News this year. If you read the Eagle News regularly, you might have noticed that I stopped writing articles sometime towards the end of last year. Surprisingly, or perhaps not, I didn’t receive many comments about how valuable the blog had been and what a empty place there was. Sadly, it has been so long since I have written that I had to ask her how I did it before. She made me smile when she replied, “you open up a word document and start writing.” That’s not EXACTLY what I meant, but I digress.

We have had a wonderful start to this school year. It has been extremely different than any other year, but there is definitely and excitement in the air. One positive addition to our school has been Fairview’s new Lead Pastor and his wife, Glenn and Jo McClimans. If you haven’t already made the transition to come in the front entrance from 7 – 9a in the morning, I would encourage you to do so. Pastor Glenn is there most mornings, along with fresh coffee! He is really enjoying getting to know so many of you and I have heard from some of you that you are enjoying the personal greeting in the morning.

As we continue through this year, I hope that we can all hang on to our theme verse this year; Matthew 19:26: Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” I truly believe that God is in the business of taking our impossible situations and making them possible. I also believe that when we look back over the 2015-2016 school year in June we will marvel at all the wonderful impossibilities God has made possible. Won’t it be fun to see what He has for us?

Looking forward to seeing what God will do,

Mrs. West
