Spartanburg Christian Academy invites the community to attend our annual Veteran’s Day program on Friday, November 8, 2013, at 1:00 pm in the First North sanctuary. The program is to honor Veterans and active duty citizens (military, firemen, policemen).   The SCA Chorus, band, and elementary students will perform a special tribute to celebrate America.  Congressman Trey Gowdy will be our guest speaker.  
We ask Veterans and active duty citizens  who will be in attendance to  contact the school office @ 578-4238 with service information (branch of service) so that we may recognize your service to our country and community.  We hope your family will be a part of this special event.

In addition to honoring Veterans at the Veterans Day Program, SCA students will be collecting items to send to currently serving military personnel.  The Spartanburg Chapter 124 of Blue Star Mothers will ship all items collected to reach our service men and women in time for Christmas.  Students may bring the following items for the Military Care Packages:
