We are officially in the fourth quarter of the school year! Please be mindful that your child is nearing the end of the school year and must remain focused on their grades for a strong academic finish. State Testing culminates this month; and so far, the testing experience has been a productive one for our students. I would like to personally commend every Sonshine Christian Academy parent, teacher, and staff person who helped with preparing each student to participate in the Statewide testing effort this month. It is a testament to your patience, hard work, and consistency with your child that has resulted in a positive experience, as Sonshine Christian Academy continues to lead the way in the community with high proficient scoring outcomes: congratulations to you all!

Sonshine Christian Academy, and the Performing Arts Department under the direction of Ms. Christina Turner, present a Spring Production titled: A Celebration of Black History: A Bridge from the Past to the Future. Performances will be made from all students in grades Kindergarten through the Eighth. This production will take place at the school on Wednesday, April 17th, from 5-7PM. Tickets are $5 for adults, and all children are free.

As we are nearing the end of this school year, please be mindful of the EdChoice Scholarship enrollment timeframes: currently open for new and reenrollment but will close on April 30th. EdChoice will reopen again July 1st and will close for the year on July 31st. ALL families must REENROLL every year to maintain the scholarship for your child’s continued education tuition payments accordingly. Please contact Mrs. Warfield or Mrs. Jackson-Fowlkes with any questions pertaining to the new/reenrollment forms before it’s too late.

Please Note the Following Dates and Information:

  • Safety Tip of the month: Littering is not only against the law, but it presents several safety hazards. Please remind your children to dispose of all trash in designated bins to prevent slip and falls.

As the Lent Season is nearing an end, please be mindful of the reason for the Easter holiday: the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ: His sacrificial atonement for our sins. I encourage every family to visit a local church in honor of what King Jesus did to save us from the curse of death, hell, and the grave. I wish you all a safe and happy Spring break ahead! I solicit your prayers and support as we continue to advance the Kingdom of God through Educating our Youth.

In the Service of the King,

Dr. Davina Jackson Hicks, Head of School
