An End-of-Year Message from Bobby Scott
The presence of Christ has sustained us this year.
BY Bobby Scott, Headmaster
As we have moved through spring, the fragrance of flowers and emerging fruit is prolific. This aroma reminds us of the presence of Christ that has sustained us this year in times of pruning and abiding. We are in the tender hands of the Vinedresser. May the coming months be fruitful, as together we abide in His love in precious time with our families. Congratulations to our graduates and prayer for full joy in the coming school year.
I believe we can continue to grow in both relevance and excellence while upholding what we know to be best for the character and education of our children.
My prayer for this community, in light of the many who are suffering, is that we would pursue community for the sake of our covenant family, that we would unite for the purpose of discipling hearts and raising up a generation, and that we would experience true revival and the promise of Psalm 126 that after darkness comes light.
Every time you are at a practice or game, think about the chance you have as a follower of Christ. Take advantage of the distinctive, unifying bond that sports provide to grow God’s Kingdom.
Ultimately, the only real peace is found in the hope that comes from Jesus, but it is comforting to know that there is a community ready and waiting to carry the load when things become too heavy.
Our hearts need to find peace and be grounded in Truth so that we are able to teach and parent from that firm foundation.
Art has value because it is part of who God is, and creativity in all its forms points us to our Creator.
I pray that we will continue to grow in our faith, love each other as a covenant family, and build lasting friendships with one another as we live out the mission of our school.
Each time we gather as a community, it is an opportunity to grow, learn something new, break down a wall, and gain inspiration. I hope our covenant community, myself included, would participate at an even higher level with time, talent, and treasure.
I never fully understood what a gift it was to attend a school like Perimeter School until I became a mom. I was given more than a good education and a Christian worldview. I was given a family, a village, people in my corner.
Re-enrollment is an exciting opportunity for your family and mine to remember, reflect, and reaffirm our covenant commitment and to rejoice in what God continues to do in and through our covenant family.
