Dear Parents and Guardians of Merritt Island Christian School (MICS) Students,
WELCOME to the 2017-2018 school year!
This year’s MICS theme is PURPOSE. Proverbs 3: 5 & 6 reads, “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight.”
To trust God is to acknowledge Him in all decisions we make. To trust is to believe that God will always direct our paths correctly. We must trust that God is in charge, that He loves us unconditionally and that He wants good for us, not evil. It is the goal of MICS to help our students trust and lean on God realizing that He holds the future in His hands as they seek His purpose for their lives. The symbol that will represent PURPOSE is an arrow pointing to the right.
This year MICS will be running our own fall fund-raiser, RACE FOR HIS PURPOSE. MICS will receive 100% of the profit. This fund-raiser will supplement all academic areas, from technology to classroom needs, in the Academy, Elementary, and Secondary. The Kick-Off will be Friday, September 8, 2017. Please pray about financially partnering with MICS in funding these areas of need.
MICS is excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year with an increase in our enrollment, in comparison to the previous past three years. We welcome all new students and their families. It is my privilege to serve you and your student(s).and I thank God for this opportunity.
MICS has many new faces on our faculty and staff roster. Please lift up our faculty and staff who have truly followed God’s purpose for their lives, as they lead students spiritually and academically in seeking the purpose that God has for them.
At His School for His Purpose,
Dr. Nanci A. Dettra – MICS Superintendent
