Dear Roy & Dora Whitman Academy Community,
The teachers and office staff have been working non-stop to prepare for a fantastic start for the new school year, and we are ready to welcome the students.
This year’s theme is “Be Extraordinary- Shine”, based on Matthew 5:16, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven”. Throughout the year we will be focusing on ways we can shine in every aspect of our lives so that we may bring a lot of glory to God, in the way we treat each other, in the way we act at home, at school, and at play.
Part of this focus will be looking at the lives of Whitman community members past and present who have done extraordinary things. Roy and Dora Whitman were real “shiners” as they traveled all over the Levant region sharing God’s redeeming love with all they met and reaching out to the poor and needy. We want to follow their example and be lights where we live.
I look forward to a lovely, bright year with all of you.
Dr. Julia Nuqul
