100th Day of School
Our kindergarten and 1st grade classes celebrated days of school on Friday, February 4th. Kindergarteners decorated t-shirts with of their favorite things and 1st graders dressed up as some of the cutest centenarians you'll ever see.
Both grades showed off their attire for all of Lower School friends to see, and then kindergarten held a fashion show for friends and family afterward. Mrs. Moss emceed the event, sharing a little about each student and why they chose the 100 items that decorated their shirt.
We had Band-Aids (for surviving the first 100 days of school), dinosaurs, buttons, sprinkles, googly-eyes, dragons, spots, footballs, and more!
These 3rd-8th grade students represented Calvary on February 25 at the ACSI Math Olympics. Students took four different math tests in the areas of computation or reasoning. The scores have been uploaded and submitted and we will report results as soon as we know them. These students are competing against other students from ACSI schools in the state of Georgia.
Congratulations to each of these students who were selected.
We would also like to thank Frank Bowden, student pastor at Calvary Baptist Church, for opening up The Hub for us to use as a testing location.

The boys from Coach Burns' Leadership class served at Feeding the Valley Food Bank. The efforts of these 5 young men resulted in a total of 320 boxes packed which will, in turn, provide 5,866 meals to families across the Chattahoochee Valley area.
Our Lower School students have answered the call! They collected over 1,100 items of non-perishable food items! The Lower School Food Drive was a huge success and our local Feeding the Valley Food Bank will be receiving these donations just in time for the holidays.
Great job Lower School students!
