Every year our kindergarten class celebrates Johnny Appleseed Day by dressing up and singing “The Lord Is Good to Me” as they parade through the school. They also taste-test different types of apples and participate in several other apple-related activities.
Pastor Randy Booth from Grace Covenant Presbyterian Church encouraged our students during morning Cantabile. Pastor Booth has invested in Regents Academy since the beginning and currently has 7 grandchildren that attend the school! Thank you, Pastor Booth, for all you have done and continue to do for our school!
PTO hosted its first Donuts with Dads event last Tuesday and it was a huge success! All of the children enjoyed quality time with their dads and dad-like figures before the start of the school day. Thank you to everyone who participated in this event and supported our PTO!
Through service projects, upper school students in the house system develop character, strengthen our community, build culture, and grow as leaders. Last week, the Rome house participated in their service project at the Village Nac. The students painted, cleaned yards, and mulched. Thanks, Village Nac, for allowing our students to serve our community!
Thank you, Pastor Wesley Burke, for encouraging our students from John 14:21 during morning Cantabile. Pastor Burke reminded our students that grace-based obedience is the only biblical obedience. Pastor Burke is the pastor of Redemption Baptist Church, a local church plant, and his four children attend Regents Academy.
Thank you, Pastor Curtis Barbarick, for reminding our students that admitting one’s own faults is an essential part of our Christian lives. Pastor Barbarick is a local pastor from North Street Church of Christ and has graciously invested in our students several times through morning Cantabile.
Thank you, Grace Bible Church, for blessing our staff with a basket of goodies!
Pastor Brian Tyre from New Hope Church spoke to our students during morning Cantabile last Friday about the importance of obedience even when God’s commands don’t immediately make sense to us. Pastor Tyre and his family have been a huge blessing to Regents for several years. He currently coaches our high school girls basketball team, his daughter graduated from Regents, and his wife Amy taught at Regents for several years. Thank you, Pastor Tyre, for all you have done and continue to do for our school!
Regents is looking for ways to be more accessible to Christian families and very excited to announce our partnership with ACE Scholarships! ACE exists “to provide children of low-income families with scholarships to private schools in grades K-12, and to advocate for expanded school choice.” You can find more information on their website: https://www.acescholarships.org/. We are hopeful this partnership will allow more students of the Nacogdoches community to attend Regents Academy. We will be sharing more details as enrollment season approaches.
The upper school students enjoyed their annual house kick-off! This year, the students enjoyed deepening their friendships and competing in several activities and games.
