#1: Bless your student when you visit
Karla DillonYour student misses you. And we know that you miss him or her! We have a remedy: attend Parent Weekend, Oct. 21-22. Our plans are shaping up nicely. When you head over to the registration page, you will find more details about the weekend. There will be music events, chapel, dessert reception, an outing on Saturday and more. Register soon!


#2: Bless your student with a Hug from Home

Hugs from Home

Look at those smiling faces! We delivered 15 Hugs from Home in the first 2 weeks of the term. You can add a smile to your student's face by ordering a Hug from Home. Click here for more information or to place your order. 

Short term blessing: your student feels the love you have for them. Long term blessing: $5 of the purchase price goes toward WorldSERVE mission teams which make a worldwide impact!
