Great Start!

We would like to thank Enterprise Baptist Church members for conducting the prayer walk prior to the beginning of school and for the encouraging, uplifting notes that were left in each area of the school. It was refreshing to see students and staff stop to…

On our last scheduled early release day for professional development all of our staff watched and discussed a short video called “Austin’s Butterfly”. The video is the story of a first grade student named Austin and the amazing progress he made on his drawing of a butterfly when given detailed and specific feedback from his classmates.

Blessed!

Written by
We at HA have had a blessed start to the fall semester. We missed a minimal amount of school and suffered little damage in our area during the recent Hurricane. This during a time when many in our state have suffered much loss related to the storm. Many schools in NC have students that were left homeless and some have had to relocate classes to off campus sites due to the damage. We all are…
