Lehigh Valley Christian High School survived Hurricane Sandy relatively unscathed. Our building, on Howertown Road in Catasauqua, never lost electricity, heat or Internet service, nor was there any flooding. Some of the aluminum facing on the front top of the building got ripped off or bent back, but that is the only damage we could find. We are very grateful.
As a result of Sandy, we had to make some calendar changes. The fall athletic awards night has been rescheduled for tonight, Thursday, Nov. 15.

Lehigh Valley Christian High School just completed spiritual life week, ending with the annual schoolwide retreat at Camp Men-O-Lan Oct. 12.
At the retreat, the special speaker was Josh Edwards, youth pastor from Bethel Bible Fellowship Church in Emmaus. The theme was "Have No Other Gods Before Me," and we were challenged to examine our lives to see if we have allowed other people or things to become more important to us than following Jesus.
Also at the retreat we found competing in games helped tremendously with class bonding.
