Headmaster Greg Reichert and principal Sue Ender shared this year’s scriptural framework in their August letter to Everest families: “In preparing for [the students] return we have chosen as a scriptural framework for the year the following passage from 2 Timothy 1:6, “Rekindle the gift of God that is within you.” Realizing the belonging that we receive through God’s love and His sacraments, we can better see ourselves as gifts for others, while also recognizing our friends and family as special gifts from God, deserving of inherent love and respect. This understanding opens up such great opportunity for the unique plans given to each of our student leaders to be fully realized and lived out.”

The faculty and staff launched the year bringing the framework to life with a wall mural in faculty and staff lounge in the high school building. During preplanning week, the team came together for a potluck lunch and painting session. The wall mural was designed by art teacher, Carrie Mazure.
