Adventist schools across the Northwest, more than 100 of them, created active opportunities for Christian growth, learning and outreach for more than 6,100 students during this current school year. Nearly 1,000 young children have also benefited from Christian care and nurture at 48 early childhood education centers. Parents from a variety of backgrounds and beliefs have valued the principled focus of Adventist education in helping to raise their children "in the way they should go."
Every member throughout the North Pacific Union Conference should say a prayer of thanksgiving for the more than 470 dedicated educators who make the wheels of Adventist education go round each year in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Upper Columbia and Washington conferences.
Following are several images that represent the active impact Adventist schools throughout the Northwest have made at home and abroad during the current school year.
