Kicking off the month of May many of our students were involved with their classes/club booths at the school’s International Festival. The dorm staff also enjoyed participating in the booths (like the dunk tank). The kids enjoyed a variety of international foods and drinks as well as live performances. The evening ended with a fireworks display.

Congratulations to our departing seniors (not pictured: Angela Song & Jeongah Eom).
Murphy Dorm will miss all of you so much!
The end of the year brings dorm alumni back to see their “second family” and friends. We love seeing our family come back to visit.
As we closed out the 2018-2019 school year, we are grateful to the Lord for blessing us with the unique opportunity to invest in each others’ lives here in Daejeon, South Korea. We look forward to welcoming new faces to our boarding program in August 2019. Look for our next blog coming out in August/September! Have a great summer!
A good time was had by all who attended our annual Prom.
Sports season has continued on through April with some of the dorm students being involved in badminton & soccer.
The Residence Life Program hosted a few soccer teams in our dorm building for the Girls APAC Soccer Tournament. Some of our girls even had the opportunity to take their visitors downtown.
Mr. Ted and some of the Adams Dorm students volunteered one evening to serve and feed the homeless alongside other volunteers. It was a good opportunity for the dorm kids to give back to their community.
On April 22nd both the Adams and Murphy Dorms headed out to enjoy an evening of good food and hanging out as individual dorm families.
As we continue to “live life” into the month of March, relationships amongst the students also continue to grow and bond us closer as a dorm program.
As dorm life can get very busy the some of our dorm students had the time to meet up with some students from Iceland visiting the school and spent an evening playing ultimate frisbee and eating snack.
We are very proud to have some of our dorm students just recently inducted into the National Honors Society.
It was also great to have some of our parents come in for such a special event.
The boarding staff planned dinner and laser tag for students who stayed the weekend. It was nice to get off campus and bond as a dorm families. Everyone had a good time!
It was a good time for our staff and students to bond with each other.
The month of April brought three special events to the dorm. The dorm staff planned their last parent luncheon of the year to thank the parents for their continual support throughout the year and to recognize the Residence Life Coordinator, Mrs. Lorilynn Midkiff, for her leadership these past 2 years. Mrs. Midkiff and her husband will be transitioning back to Canada next year.
The dorm staff planned an activity day during the Teacher Work Day this month and spent part of the day taking students to the movies and on a shopping trip to Eunheng Dong.
The dorms went on their last dorm family night of the year and enjoyed just hanging out one last time as a family unit before the end of the year.
