Merry Christmas from your friends at ISJ Academy,
As 2019 comes to an end, the students and staff pray that you have had a year full of joy and happiness. We pray that you spend this Christmas celebrating the birth of our Savior and help expand the ministry. This is a time to tell others about the wonders of Christ.
ISJ has developed Christ-centered students and families for life and eternity for 160 years! Thousands of students have learned about our Lord and Savior here at ISJ and they have gone out and made disciples. It is a glorious thing to hear what our alumni and former students have done in their lives. With that in mind, we are also excited to see our current students grow and succeed. Our students receive the best education in Grand Rapids. We provide this education through the help of the many generous donations we receive.
In the past few years, your donations have provided scholarships to help families send their children here. We have had a building expansion and upgraded curriculum. Our classrooms have added technology and learning tools. Donations have updated our landscaping in front of the building and provided new playground equipment. These things would not happen if it weren’t for people like you. We are truly grateful for your support!
Our theme for the year is Joy. Christmas is a wonderful time of the year for joy. We are joyful for the birth of Jesus and we are joyful for the gifts we give and receive. This is the time of year that we would like to continue to spread joy to our families and staff. The joy we see from a family who received a scholarship so that they can attend. The joy on the face of a student when a new device or game is introduced to the classroom. The joy of the staff when they can purchase a new curriculum to help their students. The joy of the principal and school board when we receive enough funds to build a gym and another classroom.
If you feel so moved to contribute, please click on one of the buttons to the side to send an item from a teacher's Amazon wish list or, look under our Support tab to make a much appreciated financial donation.
We thank you for your continued support of ISJ Academy! Many blessings this Christmas season to you and your family and may God fill you with joy in 2020!
With Christmas blessings,
The Joint School Board of Education, the staff and students
