Lunch Seating Locations: Sit, take a break, and enjoy time with your student over lunch.

For example, on Thursday, Upper School students will be eating lunch at their regularly scheduled times and on Friday, Lower School students will be eating lunch at their regularly scheduled times.
For one day only, Thursday, May 18, during Experience Maranatha you can get "Anchored in Wonder" at our school-wide book fair! It is a great way to get books for summer reading and to support our Learning Commons programs. There are books to purchase for Pre-kindergarten through Grade 8. All Pre-kindergarten through Grade 5 students have created a wish list of books they’d like to purchase. Wish lists are located with the classroom teachers for your convenience. As the school year comes to a close, say thank you to your child's teacher by gifting a book fair gift card so they can shop for some fantastic new books in their classroom. If you can’t find what you are looking for, be sure to check out our online fair at https://u2578.paperpie.com/2528808 through May 22nd.
The Book Fair will be located in the gym during Experience Maranatha on Thursday, May 18. We hope to see you there.

As part of our Culture in Action, Maranatha students and staff aim to be impactful innovators. Innovation is the key to the future, and at Maranatha, we are impacting every student and our world by incorporating innovative concepts into every class, conversation, and idea. This happens when students observe a need, brainstorm, and collaborate on how to address the need, and then take action. It’s where students are able to think outside the box, ask challenging questions, design, fail, and design again to make an impact.

Fifth Grade Wax Museum
Guests are invited to walk through the fifth grade "Wax Museum" where they have a chance to meet a person of history. Students will be dressed in a costume that fits with the time period of a famous person, in which they have done an extensive amount of research. Walk up to each student, "press their button," and they will share their knowledge of the person they are representing.
Maranatha's Mustang Enterprises class is a student-run business that will have some of their items for sale during Experience Maranatha. They can also take orders for custom-made goods. Be sure to stop by and meet these young innovators and see if they can be of service to you and/or your company.
A group of young entrepreneurs will have their items displayed and for sale in the Living Word Atrium on Friday, May 19, from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Stop by, meet these forward-thinking future business leaders, and purchase some of their goods.
