Since 2015, Covenant Day students have transformed three shipping containers to serve as emergency housing for those in need living on Pine Ridge Reservation through its initiative known as ContainIt. Their next endeavor might be smaller, but the impact is just as big. ContainIt students recently had a workday in Highpoint with Tiny House Development Corporation, a nonprofit organization that builds tiny houses for the homeless.
Congratulations to senior bible students: Preston Jordan, Savannah Powers, Heyward Bryan, and Charlie Moseley, winners of the National Bible Challenge Tournament! Covenant Day students, led by bible teacher Jeff Dennison, competed against fifteen teams from across the United States (and Guam). Each match had three components: a theme round, a speed round (answering 10 questions in 70 seconds), and a "Stump the Experts" round.
Did you know that in the United States, 1 in 5 children are in need of shoes? Last fall, Bryce Lindsay, Covenant Day junior and Teen Foundation chair of the South Charlotte Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc. formulated a plan to help meet that need locally by leading a chapter-wide project, "Shoes Across Charlotte." The project raised more than $10,000 and collected 1,200 pairs of shoes!
