First Day Smiles

First days of school in the fall are almost always a collection of mixed feelings...  A bit of sadness that summer has wound down, some excitement about the new school year, gladness at reconnecting with friends, and perhaps a little nervousness at a new school year or being away from Mom for the first time.

Wednesday, August 22nd, staff at DPCA welcomed the 2012-2013 student body and parents back to school.  What a joy to see the students coming in -- from the class of 2013 who will graduate in just nine months, to the class of 2025 who are leaving home in a new way to join the kindergarten class, it was a blessing to see how much children had grown, hear of some of their summer adventures, commiserate over summer coming to a close, or just watch as they reconnected with friends at school.

From preschool through the 12th grade, DPCA has enrolled about 115 students for the year, and we're excited about the prospect of another year filled with learning, growth, teamwork, mentoring, discipleship, community service, blessings, challenges, and all the joy that comes from being part of a school community where Christ is honored. 

So welcome back to school!  It's going to be a great year...
