Dear Gethsemane Families,

Thank you for an amazing year and for trusting us with your children. We have loved every day with them!
It is with great sadness that I write this to you today.  I hold each and every one of your children in my heart. It has been an absolute gift from God that He has allowed me to serve in the administrative role here at Gethsemane Christian Academy.  I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing students, parents, and staff and I will be forever grateful for this time. May all of you have an amazing summer with your kiddos. I pray the very best for your children as you go on to other endeavors.  I will close with my favorite Bible verse which I rely on in my daily walk with him. “Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”  Psalm 46:10

In His Service,

Recycle your old Markers!
Crayola and schools across North America are banding together to help kids understand the importance of their role in protecting the environment. That's why they launched Crayola Colorcycle. Through this initiative, students in K-12 schools across the continental United States and parts of Canada can collect and repurpose used Crayola markers. You can drop off your markers in the school office to be recycled.
