Be our guest! The PCA Middle School Drama Department, led by Drama teacher, Jenni Brown, wowed sold out audiences last Thursday through Saturday in the classic tale of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Junior.

The show was full of drama, musical ballads, perfected French accents, laughter and even the sponsor “commercials” were a hit!

Eighth grader Bella Pollard performed the role of Belle. “My favorite part of being Belle was the close relationships I built during the practices and building up to the play, they are all my really close friends now and I’m just so glad I got to do this with them,” states Bella.

Chase Desmond, eighth grader, scored the role of villain “Gaston”. The audience couldn’t get over his wig! “It was amazing working together with the cast." Chase reflects, “My favorite part about being Gaston was making people laugh.”

The Beast was played by eighth grader, Miles Johnson! In full costume and makeup, the transition into the beast was impressive. Miles says, “One thing I loved about being a part of Beauty and the Beast was seeing the work we put into the play pay off on opening night.”

Choir Director, Jolene Hethcox, arranged the musical score for the play and it was choreographed by PCA parent, Kelsey Nelson. The backdrops were created by the Upper School Art 2 class. Many thanks to parents for helping with the set, costumes, makeup, backstage coordination and so much more!

We appreciate our community sponsors for the event; The David M. Gilstin Insurance Agency, ZAGS and Lowcountry Gastroenterology.

Our PCA Drama students are bright stars and we cannot wait for next year's performance!

Joining Together For A Day Of Prayer

main image

ACSI’s Global Day of Prayer was a morning to remember. On February 27, students in grades K-12, along with faculty and parents, gathered in the Student Life Center for worship and prayer. Lower School, Middle School, and High School Student Government Association officers helped bring the crowd to their feet as the songs, I Thank God and House of the Lord, rang out through the building's speakers and joyful voices filled the air.

Eighth grader, Isabella Schuman, spoke on the importance of small groups and the impact it had on her. "My favorite part was getting to pray in small groups. It allowed the time to be more personal and it was special getting to pray for the different prayer requests that my classmates had.” 

Abby Best, Director of Culture and Student Activities, emphasized the significance of bringing the entire school for a time of prayer. “We pray because we are grateful for the privilege to pour our hearts out to the Lord made possible by the gospel and because we are dependent upon the Lord to move in a mighty way through our student body and our school. From the youngest to the oldest students, along with teachers and staff, it was a wonderful time coming together to call out to the Lord.” 

ECBC’s Next Gen Pastor, Danny Beech, took to center court and gave a timely and powerful message to our entire student body – with the lower school on one side and upper school on the other. He shared from the Bible on the theme of God’s faithfulness: the Lord will be faithful to His character and to His plan. 

We are so fortunate to be in a school community where we can worship the Lord daily.
