Dear Parents and Guardians,

We at Sonshine Christian Academy are happy to announce that Radio-One has contacted us for promotional opportunities of our extended academic resources made available during our After-School Homework Help and Tutoring Program! You may hear Sonshine’s After School Program being advertised over the Joy 107.1 and Magic 95.5 FM radio stations beginning this month. Additionally, we are actively looking for a music teacher who will offer piano and percussion music lessons as we try and expand our extracurricular program options for children participating in our After-School Program—feel free to reach out to the front office if you know music professionals who may like to join our elite SCA staff during our After School Program. Kindergarten through Eighth Grade girls cheerleading practices will be held every Thursday evening (during our After-School Program—from 4:55-5:55PM).

Sonshine Christian Academy, under the direction of Ms. Christina Turner and the Performing Arts Department, is excited to present a Christmas Story: Winter Program on December 19th, from 5-7PM. This ALL-SCHOOL PLAY will be held at the school (1965 Gladstone Ave) in the gymnasium; tickets are $5 for adults, and all children are free. There will also be a variety of vendor tables set-up in Room 1 (the room across the hall from where the play will be featured). Our Sonshine Christian Academy Parent Teacher Association (PTA) will be providing food and beverage concessions alongside our vendors in Room 1 to add to our fundraising efforts. All proceeds of this fundraiser will apply toward the school’s building-repair effort. I encourage each of you to please participate in this event by taking an active role in our PTA where Ms. Unisha Moore serves as the President. Please join Ms. Moore at the first PTA meeting happening this coming Thursday, 12/06/2018, at 5PM—light refreshments will be served. Feel free to contact Ms. Moore via e-mail at: for PTA updates and questions.
