Welcome to the Christmas Season!
I look forward to the Christmas programs, the caroling, the high school tradition of "Deck the Halls" and the parties and special dress days -- each event adding to the memories of this very special time of year. Most important, we consider again the birth of Jesus Christ. At SSCS, Jesus Christ is the center of Christmas. It is HIS birthday party. Come join us for one or more of our concerts. You will hear the true story of Christmas, and, you will be blessed.
Much to Thank God for!
Many people describe the community of South Sound Christian Schools as "family". Now in my third year at SSCS, I can agree that SSCS is indeed "family". I daily see people caring for each other, just like family. I see sacrifices being made, like a family would make. I see adults wanting the best for students, just like parents want the best for their children. Having family is a wonderful thing, and as we approach Thanksgiving day, I am thankful to God for the wonderful family of SSCS. I pray that your Thanksgiving vacation will be one filled with memories of family and that you will have a renewed awe for the great God we serve.
I am so thankful for the countless men and women who have served our country so that we have the freedoms we enjoy every day. We will honor our Veterans on November 9 at 9:30 in the TBS gym. We welcome you to attend that very special chapel.

Welcome Back Students!
This week we welcome back our students for another year of learning what it means to love God and live in relationship to Him. We are honored to be partnering with parents who desire that their children be world changes, be leaders, make a difference in their sphere of influence. As we disciple our students this year, our prayer is that they become leaders of tomorrow.
We are looking forward to welcoming back our students to a new year at
our New Hope campus in Graham and our Tacoma Baptist campus -- in
Tacoma! Whether the student has been at our schools since
Kindergarten or is coming this year for the first time, we are excited
to have a new member to our school family :) Every school year is
different, and this one promises to be one of growth as we CULTIVATE
our students to become leaders.
If you are still unsure about the value of Christian education, please
give us a call. We enjoy talking about how we disciple students to
become tomorrow's leader.
August is here!
We are anticipating a GREAT year at Tacoma Baptist Schools and at New Hope Christian School.
I just returned from ACSI's Leadership Academy. Again, we were reminded of the importance of Christian schools, of partnering with parents in this immensely important responsibility of training young people to know and love God. At TBS and NH, we nurture students, living out before them an example of the life of a Christ follower.
Come join us this year, for a year of CULTIVATION of Godly truth into the life of your child.
A Committed Faculty
Recently, the faculty of both TBS and New Hope spent two days at a Seattle workshop learning new skills in Differentiated Instruction. They learned how to involve students in more collaborative learning and how to adapt their teaching for all modalities of learners. The workshop was not taught from a Biblical perspective, yet I listened as each teacher processed the knowledge shared through an understanding of the truth of God's Word. I know how grateful our parents are for a faculty who puts everything they learn and teach through a Biblical grid. Our time in Seattle was worthwhile. We are looking forward to the difference our new understandings will make in our classrooms in the fall.
