UFCA Honors our Veterans

During Lower School and Upper School Chapels the week of November 10th students participated in two programs honoring our Veterans. Corporal Fitzgerald who formally served on the UFCA Staff shared his experiences in the Vietnam War and Dr. Patton challenged the students to know more about the sacrifices the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces have made and continue to make to ensure our freedom.

During the Upper School Chapel three members of VFW Post 2423 presented the American Flag and showed students the correct method to handle and fold the Star Spangle Banner.   The following picture includes three members of the local VFW, Corporal Fitzgerald, Dr. Patton, and UFCA Chaplain Mr. Woodall.

UFCA Veterans Day

Fall Family Festival

On Friday, November 7th over 150 students, parents and staff gathered on the UFCA Campus to enjoy an afternoon of family, food, and fellowship.  The afternoon started with Big Buddy Competitions and then transitioned to many games for the students.  Parents and students enjoyed popcorn, cotton candy, pizza and other foods.  The younger children enjoyed pony rides as well.  Mrs. Cortez and Mr. Brown very graciously took on the students of UFCA in the pie throwing contest.  Mr. Yasenchok and Mr. Estrada felt the effects of a cool November day by offering to be in the dunk tank.  Thank you Mrs. Gangel, Mr. Sorrentino and our parent volunteers for making the afternoon and evening a great success.  The following picture is on the front steps of our campus and includes many who attended the event.
