Volume 27 Number 26  |  3/26/2021
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
John 11:25-26

Chapel

Grammar School

In Wednesday's chapel, Mrs. Brantley talked about how we sometimes need to play our role and allow others to shine. She discussed how John the Baptist had attracted a lot of attention for his preaching in the days of Jesus' ascension to popularity, but understood that the ultimate goal was to make the mission of Jesus Christ successful. For that, he would need to defer the notoriety that he had gained toward Jesus. If he had the spotlight, it would make it more difficult for Jesus to do His work.
Mrs. Brantley referenced how in the entire book of John, John never uses his own name; he only refers to himself as "a child of God." This summarizes his attitude toward playing his role and allowing another to shine.

Upper School

Trent Williams came and spoke at Upper School's chapel. Serendipitously, he discussed a very similar topic to Mrs. Brantley. He referenced many figures in popular sports that never got the most credit, but were still vital to the success of their team's success. He similarly talked about how John the Baptist had deferred to Jesus, playing down his own importance, in order to make Jesus, the star, more likely to succeed in His mission. He referenced how when hunting with your son or daughter, it is a difficult decision to, upon seeing a big buck, not take the shot for yourself, and allow your child to have the opportunity. 

Eagles Land in D.C.

Seniors visited national monuments and museums in their trip to Washington D.C.
They even got to catch up with alumnus Kyle Sultemeier.

Backpack Heroes

Parents,

HSPA's Backpack Heroes is in full swing! Over the final 10 weeks of the school year, we are celebrating each new school day by welcoming our grammar students with an amplified morning drop off!

Each week a different family will be opening doors and helping our younger students to their destination. And each of these families will be tasked with making that drop-off… fun! This is a great time to create excitement and energy for our kids! Feel free to dress up or bring your own music.

If you’re available from 7:30 – 8:00 every morning for a week, you’re qualified. Whatever you choose to do to greet our students, it's all about having fun!

For more information, you can contact Keesha Odom (odoms4tx@gmail.com) or Kim Roberts (krobertsfbg@gmail.com), and click here to sign up:

Grandparents Day

Easter Holiday
Apr 2-5

Grandparents Day 2021
Live and Live Streamed!

We are going forward with our plan for GRANDPARENTS DAY! 

After missing the event last year during the quarantine, we are stepping into the project with enthusiasm and caution. Grandparents will be honored with a program featuring our K-12th grade classes. In the interest of caution during our lingering COVID era, all grandparents are invited to come who feel comfortable with wearing facemasks. We will set up MPAC with distancing in mind. Any grandparent who does not feel comfortable attending may opt to VIEW the program LIVE thanks to the Fbg.live team (the camera team who brought us our 2020 graduation and several of our football games). An added bonus is that our parents will be able to “attend” the program via technology as well (and we will be able to post the recording of the event!)

View the event live at heritageschool.org/grandsparentsday
