Exit Newsletter by former Principal, Mrs. J.P. Sargeant
EXTRA! EXTRA! READ ALL ABOUT IT!
Parents, you must not only read about it! You have to observe it for yourself! The IOWA Spring results have arrived and our students have done a remarkable job. When we compare the Fall IOWA performance with the SPRING, some students grade equivalent performance rose to two grade levels higher than their current grade. Students, thanks for a great show. I cannot thank the hard working teachers enough for all that you do to keep the academic levels of our students at a high standard. Keep on doing what you do best.
MIDDLE STATE ASSOCIATION ACCREDITATION
Congratulations to the Fairfield County Seventh-day Adventist School on acquiring its Middle States Accreditation Certificate for Elementary Schools and Colleges! This achievement happened December of 2018. The Fairfield County Seventh-day Adventist School is now accredited by the state along with the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists. Stop by the school’s office and take a quick peek at our most recent accomplishment
Eighteen years ago, I commenced my journey at Fairfield County SDA School as an Elementary teacher in grades 3/4. One never knows the plans that the Master has for one’s life. Being asked to be an administrator was the farthest thing from my finite mind.
Four years after teaching students in grades 3-6, the former administrator, Ms. Savory, relocated and I was asked by Dr. Barnes to take on the responsibility of Principal/Teacher. Because of financial difficulties, staffing was downsized and grades K-8 were configured into three grades. It was indeed a nervous and shaky beginning for the staff, but our God is able. I have enjoyed my experience here at Fairfield County tremendously.
God has placed me in an extra special environment to have partnered with a super student body, exceptional and professional Christian teachers, hard-working teacher assistants, a supportive school board, cooperative parents, and a unique administrative assistant, who have all gone above and beyond in every aspect of our school’s goals to make it a success.
The memories, challenges, difficulties, fun-times, accomplishments, and spiritual atmosphere that I have experienced here will last a lifetime. Thank you all for your dedication, commitment, caring, preparation and collaboration in the greatest ministry: Seventh-day Adventist Christian Education.
CONGRATULATIONS to the class of 2019! Amanda, Amari, and Zeniya, we are proud of your accomplishments! Our prayer is that you will maintain your walk with the Master Teacher of your life. Hold firmly to the values and principles that have been shared with you. It is only then that you will observe true success.
Now that the students are at home rejuvenating from a hectic school year, parents, I’m appealing to you to let this be more than a fun vacation. Plan to incorporate daily academic activities in your child(ren) schedule. This will only help to improve weak skills and sharpen those skills that are already intact. We see the results of the Fall IOWA Test for those students who are engaged in academic activities over the summer vacation. Parents, be vigilant and support your child (ren) this summer!
The initial plan for the building project has started. Parents, this project is planned to benefit our students, since the school is scheduled to be erected first. As much as you can, let us support this project by our prayers, our financial means, and gifts from our loved ones and friends so that this building project will move forward by God’s grace.
REMEMBER, IT IS ONLY WHAT IS DONE FOR CHRIST THAT WILL LAST.
2019-2020 School Year begins on Thursday, August 29, 2019. Students should be dressed in their Formal School Uniform and will be dismissed at 12:35 P.M.
8:35 am – 3:35 pm

HAVE A GREAT SUMMER!
