Greetings to the Holy Redeemer Church, Community, and School Families!

This has been a great year thus far in the areas of improving our academics. We have completed our STAR State Testing for Quarter # 1. Our test scores improved and we have made gains in grades K4-8th grade. Our 1st-3rd grade teachers have created Math and Reading Groups that center around the students test scores and skills. Our K4-K5 and 1st-3rd grade houses have met with Mrs. Summers [Assessment Coordinator] in order to help enhance and improve our various grade levels. Our goal is for each teacher to ensure that before their students move to the next grade they will know and have the basic skills needed to be successful. This academic and strategic move has been very SUCCESSFUL!

Our 4th-6th grade teachers are continually creating ways in which we are preparing our students for the “21st Century Learning” as it relates to improving their Reading, Math, Writing, and Technology skills.

Our Middle School Department is continually preparing our middle school students for higher learning in Math, Science, Language Arts, Social Studies, Reading, and Writing. Their goal is to prepare every middle school student for “College Readiness”. No Exceptions and No Excuses! College readiness and preparation is our goal for all students.

On the [“Spiritual Level”] we are continually teaching our students about the “WORD OF GOD”. Bishop’s mission and vision clearly emphasizes that “The Word of God” is our foundation and is our purpose as God leads us. We had an “AMAZING!, “RELIGIOUS EMPHASIS WEEK!” We had a

school- wide Bible Bowl, our student read scriptures and expounded on them over the (PA system). Various students from each grade level sang spiritual songs and we concluded by having a powerful Chapel Service, school wide “Bible Scavenger Hunt”; which they had to “Follow the Cross” by locating and finding as many paper crosses throughout the building. Then, they had to read the scriptures that were located on the back of each cross.

IN LOVING MEMORY and DEDICATION to SIS. KAREN BELL

– (Resting in Peace)

Sis. Karen Bell was a phenomenal woman of God. She was a songbird and touched many people’s lives. There are a variety of birds such as, the Humming Bird, Canary, and the Nightingale; However, there is only one SONG BIRD whom is the most beautiful and that is Sis. Karen Bell. Sis. Karen ministered and reached so many with her anointed voice and her warm and pleasant spirit. It was clearly evident during her “Musical Tribute” and her homegoing that she influenced, impacted, and was loved by many people.

Sis. Karen was a very influential, inspirational leader, and had a great heart. Karen had a soft spoken voice, but she was all about business. I can remember three years ago, when I became the Principal, Sis. Karen helped me out incredibly. She showed me the ropes and guided me during my first year. She made my transition real stress-free!!! The Holy Redeemer Christian Academy family is going to truly miss her. I can hear her say, in a soft sweet voice- “Good morning Principal Smith”. I knew she either wanted or needed something from me, we would “laugh out loud” about it. Sis. Karen is in a better place and she will always be remembered. We want the Bell family to know that we loved her and we are praying for them.
