Girls' weekend: Jan. 26-27

This event is named to honor alum Jason Mentink who passed away in 2010 and played on the first Charger Shoot-out team 18 years ago. Jason's family is intimately involved in the planning and the event!  Come out to support them, our players, and eat some delicious food served up by a great team of workers. 

Night of Praise - April 21, 2018
Each year we gather in a Night of Praise to thank God for his blessings on our school. Watch for more information as it becomes available.

Run-Jog-Walkathon and Spring Fry--May 11, 2018
Since the 1980’s, our students have been running, jogging, and walking to their neighbors and friends to get pledges for our school.   On the day of the event, our students, along with family and friends gather to go around the playground 20 times in a festive atmosphere.  

Each year, there is a mascot chosen who inspires everyone to raise funds and earn prizes.  We will announce that at our kick off in March.  We look forward to another year of prizes, food, and fun! We will have a brat & hamburger fry following the event serving around 4:30 p.m.
