Rex Allen Days and Joanne Todd Christian School

Rex Allen Days have come and gone once again here in Willcox, Arizona and Joanne Todd Christian School and First Baptist Church of Willlcox was right in the middle of the festivities again.  We had a wonderful time representing not only our school in the parade, but first and foremost Jesus Christ.  Our “Renegades, Rebels, and Rogues Need Jesus Too” was a wonderful way to incorporate this year’s  Rex Allen Days theme with our emphasis on the proclamation of the Gospel.

Thanks parents for bringing your children out to participate in a great time of fellowship and fun that carried on a great tradition that I pray will continue for many years both at Joanne Todd Christian School and our great community of Willcox.  In my estimation, there is no better way to spend the morning than with friends and family celebrating our Lord, all the while respecting the Western Heritage that is so much a part of our everyday lives.

A special thanks goes out to Henry and Teri Kibler, Susan George, John and Amanda, and all the staff that made this event possible.  Thanks and God Bless.

Joanne Todd Christian School First Month Update-2017

The Staff at Joanne Todd Christian School just want to say a quick thank you for your participation in our Open House.   The place was nearly full with parents and children and we would not have it any other way.  With good food, good family, and good friends what could else could anyone ask for.

We have had a wonderful first month of school with a great group of students, parents, and staff.  It is always exciting to see how our students have matured from year to year and the overall great job that you as parents have done in supporting your children and JTCS.  This school is immeasurably valuable to me, as I am sure it is to you, in providing a top-notch education in academics and discipleship in the Word of God.  The teachers, aides, volunteers, and board strive to make this a safe place where your children can flourish and become prepared to face the ups and downs of life.  It is hard to express the full measure of appreciation I have for Wendy Kibler, Amanda Hart, Earl Goolsby, Mindy Stapleton, Courtney Gonzalez, and our newest member, Shaye Lynne Clemson.  The countless hours of preparation both before and after school, the tireless devotion to the children, and the care shown for their well-being shows in the relationships being built in and through this school.

With all that said, it could not happen with you, the parents.  Thanks for caring about the education of your children.  Thank you for trusting us with them.  Thank you for volunteering your time to make our sports program a success, our pizza day a breeze, and our learning stations a priority.  We are looking forward to the rest of the year at Joanne Todd Christian School getting to know you and your children even better.

As a reminder, please be aware that we are having a Scholarship and Tuition Workshop on October 26 at 4:00 PM.  Pizza and childcare will be provided so please plan on attending and inviting your family and friends.

Also don’t forget to check out the School  Calendar for any updates and scheduling changes.
