The 12/7/17 FCA meeting topic was Faith Wins: Faith Beats Doubt. Undefeated teams are usually characterized by unshakeable confidence in their ability to defeat any opponent. They have no doubt they'll be victorious! A team that doubts itself usually finds reasons to lose and excuses to perform poorly. Questions were asked such as "How do you see your team? Is it full of faith or plagued with doubt?" Students read how Jesus and His disciples demonstrated faith and doubt and how their faith overcame their doubt. They discussed how to lead in ways that inspire faith in their teammates. Speak in ways to diminish their teammates' doubts and how to feed their teammates' minds with faith-building truth, and build their hearts to dispel doubts. Memory verse for today was Hebrews 11:1.
After the meeting students and staff were invited to join the club members for their monthy "Rally Around the Pole" event. It was great to have Mr. Kerry Hughes joins us for the meeting and rally and to see all the excited faces of the kids as they shared with each other.
DLR is participating in the Box Tops for Education™ and would like to ask for your support. Box Tops for Education™ is a school earnings program that helps schools earn cash to buy the things needed at the school. Money earned can be used by schools to buy books, sports equipment, supplies or anything they need.
Box Tops are each worth 10¢ for schools and are found on hundreds of products. When students, families, schools and communities work together to collect Box Tops, the money adds up fast. We can earn even more cash this school year with your help. Our goal this year is $1,000. Here are a few ways you can help us reach that goal:
Find the Box Tops logo on participating products when you shop and send them to the school with your student or drop them off at the office in the box provided.
Place a Box Tops collection bin in front of your business. Your employees and patrons will identify your business as a Box Tops drop-off location and a main supporter of our school.
Use the Box Tops Bonus App on your phone to turn your everyday receipts into cash. Download the app today from your Apple App Store or your Google play store.

The grand opening of the DLR Eagle Community Closet (ECC) was last Friday, September 1st. Josh was very excited to take home this awesome Cubs study pillow! Please keep clothing or accessory donations coming so we can continue to have free shopping experiences for all students!
Our Stuff for the Poor shoe drive has come to an end. The path of these shoes has changed and luckily for the better. Our 2,297 pairs of shoes are now going to be shipped to Africa plus a $1,000 donation will be used to pay for the school fees of orphan children in Uganda. We are also trying to organize a Skype conversation with the students in Uganda who will be receiving the money. Thank you for everyone’s hard work this year and donating to such a worthy cause!
