Christian Heritage Academy’s mission is to assist the home and the church in building a solid foundation in the life of each student. Deuteronomy 6:5-9 states, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
With parents being the primary teachers of their children, it is a gift to partner with each of the families that God has brought to CHA. Parent conferences are a time for parents and teachers to strengthen this partnership. This year, CHA had one of the largest parent conference turnouts in the history of the school. Parent conferences allow both the home and the school to see a fuller glimpse into the life of the student, to pray for the student, and to encourage the student to “excel still more” as 1 Thessalonians 4:10 states.
I am thankful for the investment that our families make in the lives of their children every day. The hours spent reading to your children, eating dinner at the dinner table, attending extra-curricular events, providing boundaries, and having intentional spiritual conversations are investments that will reap a lifetime of rewards. I am thankful for the teachers who diligently prepared for these conferences to make them meaningful. I am thankful for the staff who greeted our parents throughout the day.
Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in this endeavor. We are thankful that the Lord has brought you to CHA.
For His Glory,
