Highland View Christian School Celebrates Project Completion

March 17, 2017 | Kathy Edwards

Montana's Butte Church family took time on Jan. 21 to celebrate all the major projects being completed at adjacent Highland View Christian School. All of the landscaping was finished and a lighted sign put in place at the school entry during summer and fall of 2016. Parents completed the final project of putting the playground together in October. 

The day was spent praising God for the miracles He has performed in the past as well as looking forward to the miracles He is continuing to perform. The celebration was attended by Merlin Knowles, Montana Conference president, and Phil Hudema, Montana Conference education superintendent. They were joined by Archie Harris, Washington Conference superintendent, who had been a great help in the decision to start Highland View.

Highland View Christian School started in the church basement in the fall of 2010 with six students. Since then the church has built a school building large enough to house three classrooms and has completed the landscaping and fencing to make this a safe and pleasant place to be. 

The school has grown substantially and now has two teachers and 22 students in kindergarten through eighth grade. Highland View has become one of the fastest growing schools in the North Pacific Union Conference during the last seven years.
