Appreciation Letter from Mike Dale. OAA Principal
I just wanted to take a few minutes of your time to let you know how much the staff and students enjoyed having so many volunteers coming over to the school during Thursday’s registration as well as the full day on Sunday. There were so many really great treats that everyone was able to enjoy as well as the cold water.  Also, the staff expresses their gratitude for having members from the church greeting the students and the parents.  I noticed a number of church members spent many hours both Thursday and Sunday helping with the registration.
Again, thanks to all that help make registration a special event.  The staff and students appreciated the willingness of the church members to support Ozark Adventist Academy and Christian education.  Finally, a big thank you to Pastor Harris for personally going around delivering those wonderful homemade treats to all the staff that were not able to leave their duty station both days.
