What an amazing Chapel we had this morning lead by Mrs. Marten’s 2nd Grade class! They put on a terrific skit that involved the well known 3rd – century saint, “Saint Valentine”, and his significance in the tradition of “Valentine’s Day.” They also shared a new song with us that reminds us of God’s never ending LOVE, and began teaching us a new memory verse; Proverbs 3: 3-4 “Don’t lose your grip on love and faithfulness. Bind them around your neck and carve them on your heart, and you will find grace and good understanding in the eyes of God and man.”
