ACSI Math Olympics and Creative Writing Festival Results

In 1 Corinthians 12:4-7, we read,

“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit, and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.”

Each of our students have been created by God with a variety of gifts. Some have been given gifts of creativity, others athletic gifts, others gifts of compassion, and others gifts of music. Whatever gifts we have received, we are called to use them for His Kingdom and glory. This winter, our students were given an opportunity to demonstrate their gifts in the areas of writing and math, through two competitions organized by ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International). For the ACSI Math Olympics, students took a series of qualifying math tests to determine who would compete regionally. For the Creative Writing competition, the students in middle school were asked to submit their top writing piece according to the qualifications determined by ACSI. In celebration and thanksgiving for the math and writing gifts God has blessed these students with, we would to recognize the following students.
