Principal Notes

Spring, 2017

Welcome to Emmanuel!
Another year is coming to a close. Yearbooks will soon be signed, graduation messages will be prepared, and goodbyes will lead to summer vacations. Among those goodbyes are families moving out of state and our graduating eighth graders. We wish them fond memories of Emmanuel and God's continued blessings.
May we continue to remember "We are God's Masterpiece" and may his love motivate us to serve him and others with many good works.

Some exciting new legislation signed by Governor Ducey in April expands the Empowerment Scholarship Program to benefit all children entering Kindergarten and students currently in public or charter schools who want to attend private schools entering first, sixth, and ninth grades in the fall (siblings of accepted students are included). The state will provide up to $4500 per student. Only 5500 students will be accepted this first year and the enrollment period will open soon. To be contacted when the ESA online application is updated, email 

And thanks to the AZ tax credit program you can afford a quality Christian education! To learn more click, on the tuition tax credit link found on our home page.
For additional information on Emmanuel or Sonshine Preschool or to set up a tour please contact our admissions coordinator, Noelle Gallivan, at 602-301-6382

Parents, thank you for your support throughout the year. We pray that you have been blessed as we have been privileged to share God's word with your children.

Don't forget: Back to School night is Monday, August 7, 2017.

Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
