As of the second semester, Mr. Baker has decided to follow Christ's call to serve full-time in politics. He is now working for the state government.
We want to keep you informed of what is going on at SBCS, and we would like to hear from you what God is doing in your life. In some ways, the 2020-2021 school year has begun like so many years before, but in other ways COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on the way we do everything at SBCS. We are offering both in-person and online learning so that families who prefer to keep their students at home during this time are still able to benefit from our quality Christian education from the safety and comfort of their homes. To date, God has truly blessed our campus with very few COVID cases among our SBCS family and no known transmissions within our campus. Please pray for our faculty, staff and student body as we continue to work and learn on campus and from home.
Our student body continues to grow. We have over 450 students this year with many more names on waitlists for most of our classes. Obviously, the current situation in our public school system offering only online classes has played a role in our growth, but even before COVID we have been experiencing increased enrollments for the last several years. Word is getting out that Salem Baptist Christian School is a great place to send your children for a quality, Christ-centered education. If you live in the Winston-Salem area and have school-age children, give me a call to learn more about what we offer for your children. You knew SBCS in the past, but let me tell you about the SBCS of 2020. As they say in the lower school, "it's a great day to be a Salem Viking."
I would love to hear from our alumni and catch up with what is going on in your life. Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com to share good news or if there is a specific way that we can pray for you. Those of us who have been here for years still think of you and talk of you often. You are in our prayers. May God bless you and keep you safe.
The SBCS Alumni Association sends out regular emails to keep you in the know. If you don't currently receive these e-mails, please contact our new Director of Public Relations, Valerie Reed, at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list.
