During art class, our K-Prep students had an “egg”citing time decorating and dying eggs. It is a joy to watch the students express their creativity and see their ideas come to fruition!
Last Thursday, a few students who participated in the Fall Auction had the opportunity to eat breakfast and spend time with our Headmaster, Dr. Atwood. The students enjoyed getting time outside of class to take part in great food and fellowship with one another.
Here at Regents, we believe in bringing literature to life. Recently, our second graders enjoyed reading a Boxcar Children novel by Gertrude Chandler Warner. They acted like boxcar children and enjoyed a picnic with bread and milk.

Thank you to everyone who came to our Christmas performance. The students did an excellent job, and the night was full of enchanting music by all our students (KPrep-12). If you missed out on the performance, you can view it here. Thank you to everyone who made the night possible, and especially to David Brewer, Julianna Dutton, Lina Burklin, and Grace Bible Church.
Thank you Pastor Noel Dear from FBC Nac for joining us for morning Cantabile yesterday. The students and staff enjoyed your message about seeking the Lord for wisdom in all things.
Our PE classes took advantage of the beautiful weather last week. Enjoy the pictures of our precious KPrep students enjoying PE class outside!
Congratulations to Jesse Vermillion for winning our 2021-2022 Regents Academy Spelling Bee! He will be advancing to the Lufkin district competition. And congratulations also to Liam Shipp for coming in second place. Last Tuesday, we had a schoolwide spelling bee, and all of the students had a great time competing against each other. Thank you Nicole Alders for organizing the spelling bee and keeping the fun tradition alive at Regents Academy!
The 5th Grade class celebrated their annual Colonial Day on November 18 in view of their study of early American history and literature. They began the day with reading about life in a New England colonial village, and then they put their knowledge to practice through hands-on crafts such as loom-weaving, tin punching, and making corn husk dolls. After a huge colonial Thanksgiving Feast (provided by our wonderful 5th Grade families), the students made their own butter and sampled it with homemade bread. Mr. Vermillion dug a fire pit for added ambience, and in their colonial costumes the youngsters both looked and smelled like early American villagers. Mrs. Smith and the 5th grade students would like to express their warm and heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Cunyus for creating and scheduling Colonial Day and to the many, many volunteers who made this celebration possible.
Thank you Pastor Curtis Barbarick from North Street Church of Christ for reminding us to minister to the “least of these” during Cantabile yesterday morning. We are grateful for your time and your message!
