Dear UCA Family,
Our next prayer time will be Monday, May 14th, and we will be praying for Zalika Thompson, Grant and Cindy Williams, and the Village Girls. Thank you for joining us where you are!
26 days, 1 hour, 2 minutes, 47 seconds until graduation!!
We value your student’s education very much and we want them to be able to complete all required schoolwork in the time frame given and without added stress as the year comes to a close. Please note that all students are required to attend all of their classes the last week of school unless there is a family emergency or specific family event. Please make your plans with that in mind to avoid unwanted surprises at the end of the year.
WEEK OF PRAYER
Week of Prayer begins this week! Pastor Benjie Maxson has entitled his series “Finding My God”. The meetings will be at 12:10 and 6:40 p.m. Day students are not required to attend evening meetings but are encouraged to stay, as we know they will be blessed. Please see schedule and topics on This Week at UCA attached.

STUDENTS IN HIS SERVICE SCHOLARSHIP
Online applications are now being accepted until May 1, for the 2018 Summer Students In His Service Scholarship. This is a three-way scholarship funded equally by the Upper Columbia Conference Office of Education, the Upper Columbia Conference Adventist Community Services Grant funds and the student’s local church. Students arrange and log hours volunteering during the summer in approved activities of service to their community. Applications may only be made online at the UCC Education website (www.uccsda.org/Education). The process of approval has changed, and a Church Approval Form must be received by May 15 for the applicant to qualify. Funds are limited, so a limited number of scholarships will be awarded this year. Recipients will be notified by June 1.
TEXT & LIBRARY BOOK RETURN
Please see the attached flyer for due dates. Parents, please encourage your student to wait until the librarian has verified that they have returned all of their books. It is possible that they will return a textbook, thinking it is theirs, but the bar code shows that it is checked out to someone else. That will help their friend, but they will still be responsible for their own book.
STUDENT SUMMER JOBS
Is your student looking for summer work? Summer employment is available at UCA to any student who is accepted and planning to attend for the 2018-19 school year. All positions require motivated workers with strong work ethic, integrity, a cheerful attitude, and willingness to serve. There are openings that are only for a few weeks and others last all summer long. We have positions available in the cafeteria, dorms, farm, IT office, grounds/maintenance, and recruiting. Transportation and housing are not provided. For more information, please contact Nancy Starr at (509) 245-3610 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
