PCS School Awards 2020-2021
Dear PCS family,
What a remarkable and challenging year this has been – truly one for the record books! In His goodness and provision, God has allowed classes at Providence Classical School to meet in-person for the entire year so that we could continue in our mission to train students to impact their culture for Christ.
This certainly doesn’t mean that it has been an easy year. Our faculty, staff, students, and families have shown great resilience through the challenges of physical distancing, COVID procedures, shared classrooms, altered schedules, and a host of other adjustments. In addition, many in our school family have walked through great trials and difficulties this year (and some continue to do so).
However, I have been blessed to see our Paladins honor and love one another well through these trials to the glory of God. It gives me great hope for the future of PCS. As Paul said in Romans 5:
And not only that, but we also rejoice in our afflictions, because we know that affliction produces endurance, endurance produces proven character, and proven character produces hope. This hope will not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us.
So now we pause within the flurry of year-end activities to celebrate all that God has done in the hearts and minds of our students. He is growing and nurturing the next generation of culture-changing believers right here in our midst!
A note to all of our PCS students: While we value the opportunity to recognize students with end-of-the-year awards, giving honor to whom honor is due, these awards pale in comparison to the rewards which await the faithful in Christ. If you worked hard as unto the Lord this year, He is well pleased. Well done!
I also want to thank our extraordinary faculty and staff. Their dedication and love for their students has never been more beautifully apparent than it was this year. It is a privilege to call these godly men and women my colleagues and my friends.
And finally, I want to thank you, our school families, who have once again partnered with Providence Classical School in the education and formation of your children. Your presence brings joy and life to the PCS community, and it has been wonderful to see parents and grandparents return to campus for all the recent, year-end events.
Now, as we enter a much-needed time of rest and refreshing, my prayer for all our school family can best be expressed in this passage from Ephesians 3:
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Semper excelsior ad gloriam Dei
(Always ever upward to the glory of God!)
