*December Tuition – Due by December 10
It’s that time again! December tuition is due by the 1st of the month and late after the 10th of the month. If you haven’t paid your December tuition, you may pay it in the school office or online using E-Funds. If you have any tuition questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
*School Spelling Bee – Tuesday, December 1
Our school Spelling Bees (FUN Team Bee and official Individual Bee) will be the Tuesday after we return from Thanksgiving break, December 1st, beginning shortly after morning assembly. In the spirit of loving our neighbors and maintaining careful COVID-consciousness, we will continue our current mask and distancing protocols. With this in mind, we plan (weather-permitting with temperatures above 55-60 degrees) to have the FUN Team Bee competition first – as usual – under the big top tent. To minimize our numbers under the tents, only classes who have teams competing at that time will be allowed to watch under the tent, and both classes will need to stay in their separate cohorts. For the Individual Bee competition, which will follow the Team Bee competition and will involve only 2nd-8th grade classes, only those classes will be able to come and watch their fellow students compete. Again, classes will need to stay in their cohorts, and non-spellers will need to wear masks. Parents will be able to attend this as well. If you have any questions or need a spelling word list to study, please contact Mrs. Alders.This year, however, the Lufkin Kiwanis have decided they can’t safely offer a district team bee competition (due to COVID), so our winning teams will not advance to that competition. However, we will be able to send our school champion from our individual bee to the Kiwanis’ district bee in February; that winner advances to the Houston bee in March.
*Christmas Program – Thursday, December 10
This year our Christmas Program will look a little different due to the guidelines we must follow at Grace Bible Church to keep everyone safe. The Christmas Program will feature the Regents Orchestra, the Chamber Choir, and the 5th and 6th grades. Because of this, the spring program will feature more of the Grammar School classes. The program will be live-streamed and recorded for those who are not able to attend, and we hope it will still be a blessing to everyone who gets to witness it!
*Fall Online Auction – Tuesday, December 1- Saturday, December 12
We are delighted to announce that despite the challenges imposed on us by the pandemic, we will still be having our benefit auction this fall to coincide with the holiday season. To ensure the safety of everyone involved, this year’s auction will be hosted online using a venue called Auctria. The auction window will be open from December 1-12. Please mark your calendars now! With a goal of 20K, the funds raised this fall will be used to replace the school’s van. We have already raised $3,600 toward the new van through the Butter Braid fundraiser, but we still have a ways to go. Our current van has recently been deemed unsuitable for safe travel, so a replacement is urgently needed. Just like our previous van, we will use the new one to transport our athletic teams for games and students for field trips. We invite all of you to purchase items during the auction! This year’s auction features an elaborate display of different goods and/or services, including themed gift baskets (e.g., movie night; pets; coffee; spa day; game night) put together by the different classes, guns, beach house vacations, hunting expeditions, voice and piano lessons, fine art, restaurant gift cards, and much more! We have also added a Regents’ staff wish list where you can view and purchase desired items to enhance the educational experience on campus for our teachers, staff, and students. If you’re looking for a way to bless your child’s teacher this Christmas, please consider purchasing something from this wish list!You must pre-register to purchase any goods and/or services during the auction at the following website: https://www.auctria.com/auction/Regents_Academy20 (click the “Register” tab). Registration is FREE for anyone who wants to participate! While items for the auction are still being added daily, you can peruse this website now to get a sense of what will be available in a few weeks. Please tell your friends and family about the auction, especially over Thanksgiving break! Feel free to send them the link above. The students will be bringing home fliers next week for you to distribute to your loved ones. Momentarily, we will post about the auction on our Facebook account. Please “share” the post on your own account to spread the word.
Thank you so much for your consideration!
