As the end of the 2018-2019 school year fast approaches, I want to share with you some exciting things we are planning for the 2019-2020 school year here at Valley Christian Academy!
New Faculty and Staff Positions
VCA will add two new faculty and staff positions to our existing team for the upcoming school year. We are excited to add a Preschool Assistant and an Academic Coach.
The Preschool Assistant will work alongside the preschool director to teach, supervise, and take care of our growing pre-kindergarten 3 & 4 class.
The Academic Coach will work with students and teachers to enhance the instructional program by teaching students in small groups, creating remediation and enrichment opportunities for students, and evaluating and selecting curricular materials.
We are currently in the process of considering candidates for each position and will make those selections public in the coming weeks.
Also, we are all looking forward to Mrs. Jordan Carter’s return to VCA for the upcoming school year as well. Jordan taught 4th grade at VCA in its inaugural year, and we have certainly missed her and her love of all things history as she took off this year to care for her new baby.
Finally, we are looking for a qualified individual to direct our Aftercare Program for the 2019-2020 school year. Anyone interested can contact us at 423-462-3008.
New Facilities Agreement with Eastanallee Baptist Church
Eastanallee Baptist Church has partnered with Valley Christian Academy in the use of their facilities for the past two years. This past Sunday, Eastanallee members voted to continue to allow VCA to be housed in Eastanallee indefinitely. This is a blessing and an answered prayer!
HONOR: Chapel Theme for the 2019-2020 School Year
The chapel theme for the 2018-2019 school year was “The joy of the Lord is our strength” from Nehemiah 8:10. After much prayer and consideration, the chapel theme for the 2019-2020 school year will be based around the concept of biblical honor, including honoring God, others, and ourselves from a Christian perspective. More details and scriptures on this will be presented at orientation on August 2, 2019.
Enrollment for the upcoming school year has gotten off to a strong start. There are a few spaces available in each grade for new applicants. Join me in praying for prospective families who are considering a Christian education for their children.
There are no major changes anticipated to the current dress code. We will be adding navy to the polo color choices. Be sure to order by mid-July to give ample time for processing and delivery. Uniforms may be ordered at http://chattanoogahuntsville.educationaloutfitters.com/find-my-school/valley-christian-academy/.
Educational Outfitters runs a 10% off sale in June. We will also have gently used pieces for sale at school as we receive those. Check our facebook page for those as they come available.
