Spring is finally here! The students are excited to be finishing up the school year. The tutor lab at Power House is still busy with teachers helping with last minute assignments. My favorite part of Mondays is to walk into the tutor lab and see everyone working.
The students have been enjoying some great life-skill classes on Mondays. One of the popular ones was making bird houses. They loved working with the power tools, even the girls! Colonial Nursery donated flowers for us to plant. We were able to fill the planters at the Senior/Youth building with beautiful flowers. Some of the other classes have been sewing, baking, crocheting, map reading....
Our summer schedule is attached! If you live locally, please let students know about the events. Anyone entering 6th grade-12th is welcomed!
Recently, Power House was recommended for a large grant. There are two steps in the process. I am pleased to announce we were accepted into the second step!! Now the fun begins of writing the grant. Please pray for creative, specific ideas for those writing the grant this summer. The application is due Sept 1st. We will be requesting the monies from the grant for our building renovations.
Speaking of building renovations.....the subcontractors are almost all lined up! Our general contractor has been working so hard. I never realized how tedious this process is. Lots and lots of paperwork and meetings! The general contractor, Lord willing, will be starting his part in June. Please pray for safety as all the contractors work on the building this summer. A prayer request is that we will find a commercial concrete contractor. If anyone local knows of any, please let me know!
Our next fundraiser is coming up in June! If any locals like to bake, we are having a bake sale! All goodies need to be delivered to First Church of Christ on Thursday, June 7th. Please email me if you are interested in baking or helping to sell.
