Today is the first day of Spring, and that brings thoughts of fun summer days away from classrooms and homework.
But Prince Avenue Christian School stays busy in the summer, and we have a variety of sports and fine arts camps that allow kids to improve their athletic skills or express their creativity through art and music.
You can view a list of our camps, find contact information, and register and pay online for each camp at our website.
Prince Avenue Christian School students celebrated Fine Arts Week with a special guest artist reknown saxaphonist Jonathan Kilgore. Kilgore met with the school's band classes, performed at Chapel servies, and answered questions from students about his interest and career as a performer. He also performed with students Madeline Jackson and Monica Walcott, two young Wolverine saxaphonists.
Fine Arts Week festivities also included a presentation of Doolie the Bully by the Athens Creative Theatre, and dress up days for students.
The National Art Honor Society at Prince Avenue Christian School recently presented a $2,000 donation to Mrs. Barbara Anderson of "A Bigger Vision" to support the organizations efforts to feed the hungry.
Members of the National Art Honor Society participated in this special ministry opportunity by creating pottery bowls and filling them with goodies to auction at the school as a part of the Empty Bowls program. The $2,000 was raised in the one-day auction.
