“These heroes are dead. They died for liberty-they died for us. They are at rest. They sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadow of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars-they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living, tears for the dead.” ~ Robert G. Ingersoll
Field Day marked the beginning of the end! We had a wonderful time and the weather actually co operated. Thank you Miss Brooke for a day of fun and laughter.
Now we begin the process of easing into summer vacation. We will have our Awards Night Monday, May 20, 2013 at the Presbyterian Church. This is a very special assembly as students receive recognition for all of their hard work. It is the time for our Kindergarten class to “graduate” to first grade. Of course, the recipient of this year’s Ambassador Award will be given to a deserving student.
New this year is the Eighth Grade Promotion ceremony. This is the first time in many years that Crossville Christian School has had a “senior” class. This will take place Tuesday, May 21, 2013 at 9:00 a.m. This ceremony will also be held at the church. We invite everyone to join us for both occasions. This will, in fact, be the final events for this school year.

The school year is rapidly coming to an end. Our annual Field Day celebration will be Friday, May 10, 2013. Miss Brooke, our PE teacher, has a day packed with activities that will leave everyone exhausted, but happy at the end of the day!
In order for Field Day to be a success, we will need to have many parent volunteers to help set up and assist with the stations. Please return the forms Miss Brooke sent home last week as soon as possible and indicate whether you can be of assistance.
The day promises to be a wonderful event filled day and we hope everyone can come! (rain date is May 17)
“Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” ~ Matthew 25:40

“Do you not know that the runners in a stadium all race, but only one receives the prize?” ~ICorinthians 9:24. We hope people read this quote on the back of our runners’ shirts. “Run in such a way that you may win”. We did! Praise the Lord!

DID YOU SEE IT? WERE YOU A WITNESS? DID YOU SEE THE GLORY OF GOD REVEALED?
IF YOU WERE PRESENT AT THE EASTER PROGRAM HELD AT THE PALACE, THE CHILDREN DELIVERED THE EASTER MESSAGE IN A POWERFUL WAY. EXCELLENT JOB CROSSVILLE CHRISTIAN STUDENTS!
IF YOU MISSED IT, I WILL TRY TO SAY IN A FEW WORDS WHAT THE CHILDREN SHARED….CHRIST CAME TO EARTH FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS. HE WAS BORN, WALKED THE EARTH, WAS CRUCIFIED, AND ON THE THIRD DAY ROSE AND WALKED THE EARTH AGAIN. HIS MESSAGE? HE DIED FOR YOU AND ME SO THAT WE CAN COME TO THE THRONE OF GOD FREELY! IT IS NOT BY OUR WORKS, OR HOW GOOD WE ARE. IT IS HAVING A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM NOW AND FOREVER. THAT VERY ACT OF SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS OPENED THE DOOR FOR ALL TO ENTER INTO GOD’S PRESENCE. PLEASE, IF YOU HAVEN’T DONE SO, WALK THROUGH THAT DOOR.
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” ~ Jesus (John 14:6)
