High School April 9-13, 2018

The Human Kinetics Book Award

from the University of Windsor recognizes top-achieving secondary school students.  Congratulations to Ally Winik for being the recipient of this award!  As well as being an honour roll (above 80% average) student, she was our school’s most valuable player in Basketball and every year in Volleyball since grade 9.  She was an OFSAA Track and Field Champ (4th place) in 300m hurdles and as team captain she led our Volleyball team to a gold medal at SWOSSAA in 2016.  Her volunteer contributions include camp instructor at summer horse camps, volleyball coaching, worship team at Maranatha, and being on student council (grade 9 – 12).  Ally is indeed a worthy recipient of this award. In the photo below Ally is receiving her awardfrom the University of Windsor.

The grade 9 science class kicked off their ecology unit by doing a cleanup of the school yard! They worked hard and weren’t afraid of getting dirty. Four bags of garbage later and the school yard and forest area look much better!

 

Not just remembering, but also praying for the families and friends of the Bronco’s Junior Hockey team from Humboldt, Saskatchewan.

 

Mr. James Krasinkiewicz, a University of Windsor student teacher, has noticed a remarkable difference between our high school and the the other schools he has taught at.  Here are his reflections about Maranatha:    “Teaching any child made in the image and likeness of God is a rich joy I’m blessed to participate in, but I must say, teaching at a school full of such respectful, academically strong students is a blessing. I’ve appreciated the great efforts that students put forth to try, to learn, and to accomplish goals in the classroom, even as they balance extracurricular activities as well. The Christian focus of staff and students has provided a beautiful prayer-filled, Christ-focused atmosphere for everyone at the school to grow in body, mind, and spirit. I will always think back on my time at Maranatha Christian Academy as a true highlight in my student teaching career.”

Congratulations to Luke Brouwer and Aaron Owlsey (doubles) placing 4th at the recent Badminton tournament and moving on to WECSSAA!  Koodos also to John Seol (singles), Joel Yzerman and Jacob Broom (doubles) for their competitiveness and determination.  Thank you for representing Maranatha well.
