Providence to Open School Year with Convocation Service

Convocation (Latin for “calling together”) is a formal academic and spiritual service officially launching the Providence Upper School year.

During the convocation service, three faculty members will deliver short charges to the students to work diligently and to strive for excellence in the year ahead. Student leaders will participate in the service through leading prayers and addressing their classmates.

Representatives of the Board of Directors and the administration will enjoy the pleasure of welcoming new students and families to the Providence, A Santa Barbara Christian School community.

The 2014-15 academic year convocation service will be held at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday at First United Methodist Church, 305 W. Anapamu St. The service is open to anyone who wishes to attend.

Classes begin Wednesday. The school anticipates a record enrollment of 255 students, up from 191 the previous year.

— Elaine Rottman is the marketing director for Providence.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
