This year’s Middle School Banquet, “Tunes and Treats,” organized and run by the junior class, was like no other. Middle school students were treated to live music by Verse II, a ministry of First Free Will Baptist Church here in Albany. Ken Rice, one of our elementary parents and part of the band, cooked a delicious meal of pasta in marinara sauce with homemade giant meatballs, Italian salad, fresh bread, and brownies with caramel sauce.

After dinner, students participated in games such as foot pasta, junior trivia, and a rock/paper/scissors group challenge. The night ended with a fantastic assortment of door prizes from hats and t-shirts to kayak rentals and gift cards.

The junior class would like to thank all of the parents who supported this event and the businesses who donated the great prizes.

Veterans Day 2018

On Friday, November 9, we celebrated our annual Veterans Day program at Sherwood Baptist Church. This tradition has become a school favorite each year. This day is set aside each year to be sure this generation and future generations remember to honor and thank those who have fought for the freedoms we enjoy today.

The program included the Parade of Veterans where the elementary students sang the ‘Military Medley’ to recognize each branch of our armed forces while 50 plus veterans came out on the stage to a standing ovation. Additionally, congregational patriotic songs that are being lost in our culture were sung.

Other program elements included: the 4th graders recited the ‘American’s Creed’ reminding us all what it means to be an American; the middle school choir One Voice sang two very powerful worship songs that pay honor to those, and, mostly importantly, Jesus Christ, who sacrifice much for us; and the kindergarteners performed their traditional, flag waving, ‘Grand Old Flag.’

The high point of the program was the annual flag folding ceremony performed by six seniors. This year, the flag was presented to Chaplain Major Robert Greene of the United States Air Force. Finally, SCA was presented with a commemorative American flag that flew over Camp Resolute in Kabul, Afghanistan, on September 11, 2018, in our honor compliments of an SCA grandparent serving overseas.

Special thanks to all of our veterans who were in attendance; and our music teacher, Mrs. Vickie Knuckles, and Principal Mrs. Sylvia Hager, for putting together a fantastic program this year.
