Campion Academy welcomed home 145 students to kick-off the school year this week. Parents, staff, and church members rallied together to help the students move in to the dormitories throughout the day on Sunday. In the evening, the beginning of a new school year officially commenced at the annual Student Association (S.A.) Handshake event.
The 2019-2020 Student Association officers introduced the theme for the school year: No Limits. Erick Maldonado, S.A. Spiritual Vice-President, explained, "Everyone has issues that create limits in their lives, like anger, doubt, fear, and failure. But, with the power of God, we can break free from those chains and live our lives with no limits."
After worship, the students enjoyed a few games and class competitions including the classic human knot, hula-hoop circles, and a water-balloon toss. For the main event, the staff and students formed a long line where each student shook hands, gave high fives, or hugs to each member of the staff and student body. Finally, Campion lead pastor, Micheal Goetz, led everyone in a prayer of blessing on the school year.
Welcome home to Campion, students. You are loved.
