Pat Kinner introduced students in Annapolis’ School of Grammar to a study called “The Promises of God” at the first chapel service of the new school year. Students were encouraged to view God’s promises as presents. Psalm 145:9 says “The Lord is good to all, and his tender mercies are over all his works.” This is a promise about God’s character. Annapolis students were encouraged to talk at home with their parents about how God has been good to them. Here is a summary text of that message:
Choosing the right school for your child can be a challenging decision for any parent. There are a multitude of important things to consider from environment to test scores to reputation to facilities etc. But by far the most important criteria involves the quality of teachers. True teaching is a high and noble calling and nothing is more important than the quality and integrity of your child’s teachers. Each year, Annapolis does extensive searching, interviewing, and vetting of new teachers to find the best and brightest candidates. This year is no exception and we are very proud to introduce you to the latest members of the Warrior Faculty!
