This Week at UCA – May 20-26, 2011
Dear UCA Family,
Empty? Be Filled! finished just as strongly and inspirationally as it started. We hope you were able to attend and be blessed as we were.
DID YOU KNOW?
UCA offers 95 different classes. You would be hard pressed to find another school with so many options. Few schools today offer the art, home and family life, industrial technology, music, and physical education options that we have, as well as Forensic Science and other core classes. Many public and private schools have cut these classes as their budgets diminish. I am thankful for support from our alumni, conference, and you parents that allow us to still offer these learning opportunities to enrich the lives of our students and their service to others.
CURRENT STUDENTS RE-APPLICATION
Our current students have already completed their re-application form. It is not necessary for them to complete the admissions packet. New student applications continue to arrive daily.
DAY STUDENTS AND PARENTS
Monday, May 23 is a regular school day with Track and Field Day in the afternoon. We will use the attached Home Leave Schedule, followed by the track and field events.
NEXT FRIDAY, MAY 27, 2011
Our music department will be performing at the Central United Methodist Church in Spokane Church at 518 West 3rd Street on Friday, May 27 at 7:30 p.m. Classes will be shortened to facilitate their departure on Friday afternoon. We will use a modified Friday Week of Prayer Schedule. It is attached.
The This Week at UCA and the cafeteria menu are attached and on our website, www.ucaa.org.
JUNIOR AND SENIOR PARENTS
The graduation weekend schedule is attached. This was mailed to you with other information this week.
CAMPMEETING STUDENT WORK OPPORTUNITY
Are you planning to come to the UCC Campmeeting June 15-18 and your student could use some work? There will be grounds shifts available June 6-17. Café and dorm shifts will be available from June 15-19. If interested, please contact Cindy Kiefer right away, the jobs are limited. Students will be paid minimum wage. email@example.com or 509-245-3617
PARENTS OF FRESHMEN & SOPHOMORES
If your student has a junior class they have class on Thursday, June 2. Only freshmen or sophomores who do not have junior classes are free to leave after their last appointment on Wednesday, June 1. Both Wednesday and Thursday are a regular schedule, not a home leave schedule.
TEXT & LIBRARY BOOK RETURN
See the attached flier for due dates. Parents, please encourage your student to stay with their books until the librarian has verified that they have returned all of their books. If they check out books after they have returned their books, they will be responsible for those also. It is possible that they will return a textbook, thinking it is theirs, but the bar code shows that it is checked out to someone else. That will help their friend, but they will still be responsible for their book.
CALENDAR CHANGE FOR 2011-12
Unfortunately we will need to make the following calendar changes for December 2011:
- Winter Banquet will be Sunday, December 4, not 11
- The Sacred Concert will be Sabbath afternoon, December 10, not 16
- We will have school on Sunday, December 11 and the ACT Test
- Thursday, December 15 will be a Friday Schedule
- The Christmas Concert at the Fox will be Thursday evening, December 15, not 17
- Christmas break will begin Friday, December 16, (no classes will meet) buses will run first thing in the morning
Sorry for this change. The Spokane Symphony has priority booking at the Fox, so we were asked to change our date. We just received word of this change, so we wanted you to know how to plan.
