2016 School Board Nominees

Huge Thank You!

We want to thank Wolter Korf, Tuvette McCroskey, and Alisha Steich for their service to the school and community. Their contributions to the board will be missed next year!

School Board Math

Historically, the School Board has been composed of 8-10 members--parents, past parents, alumni, grandparents, and/or friends of SCS. This school year we had 9 members serving. Three of those members have completed their three-year term--one will be up for re-election--and one member is stepping off the board for personal reasons. This means that we have up to 5 open spots on the board to fill for the 2016-2017 school year. Below are the nominees for you to consider. Voting will take place at the Society Meeting on May 16 @ 7:30 pm. Read more >> about 2016 School Board Nominees

Gifting Appreciated Stock: It’s a win-win!

Given just how far the stock market has risen in the past several years, many investors are fortunate enough to have investments that have appreciated in value substantially. That's good news for the value of your investment portfolio, but if you own those investments in a taxable account, then you'll have to pay what could be a substantial amount of tax on the capital gains that those investments have earned since you bought them. Even at preferential long-term capital-gains rates, the prospect of paying as much as 20% of your hard-earned gains to the IRS probably isn't the kind of charity you had in mind.

Preschool and the Gospel

I’ve mentioned before that I have son in preschool at Shoreline Christian School; his name is John. He has a pretty great story for being only three, but that’s another blog post for another time. He and I have shared so many sweet moments over the years, but a recent conversation really stands out. It’s the one where I was able to share the gospel with him.
