The orchestra and the Fiddler on the Roof were both a fantastic success last night! The seats were filled and the students did such an amazing job! Thank you Mrs. Rice, the students of UJA, as well as the orchestra students from the Ukiah High School and Developing Virtue Instilling Goodness for all the hard work and effort you put in to the spring concert to make it a great performance! I only was able to get some backstage photos, but here they are!

UJA Parents, There is a special church service coming up on Saturday, May 6 at the Ukiah Seventh-day Adventist Church that we call Education Sabbath. This service is a celebration of the school and its program. Many students will have roles in the service. As you may know, this church donates over $300,000 each year to the school to help make Christian education available, and affordable, for those families who desire it. It means a great deal to the members of the congregation to see our students participating in the service. If at all possible I would encourage you to make every effort to attend as a way of expressing thanks for their support and give them the joy that comes from seeing our students participating in the service. The church service starts at 11:00 AM, however, Mrs. Rice may want some to come at 10:30 for rehearsal. Watch for details next week. God bless, Rick Nelson
