Michael Devon Garrett Memorial Presentation – January 24, 2020
Michael attended Faith Christian School all thirteen years, K-12, Graduating in 2007. It is fitting that we recognize Michael tonight, as he was voted Homecoming King in 2007.
In school, Michael was a member of the FCS Band, ran cross country and loved basketball; (he made many 3 point shots on this court). He was always an example of great sportsmanship.
- If someone was new to the school, Michael would be the first to make them feel welcome
- If someone was seated alone, Michael was the one who would go and join them
- If someone wasn’t being treated kindly, Michael would step in and come to their defense
Michael was a great recruiter of students to FCS: Friends recount Michael’s persistence in recruiting them to come to Faith knowing the Christian environment would be good for them, and it was.
Michael received his B.A. from Chico State and became a Certified Public Accountant working for J. David Thomas, CPA.
Always respectful, caring and compassionate, he loved God and loved people. He had an abundant zest for life; his laugh was contagious. His dad calls it “The Michael Effect,” changing the room with his mere presence. He brought joy and life to all who knew him. The testimony of many was that, Michael, by his life, made people better… He was a man of deep conviction, integrity and faith. Family was his first priority and he loved them well.
Michael’s life of love and service was never more apparent than in his marriage to Raquel (Law) Garrett; and now his legacy will continue through their daughter and son, “Seraphina” and “little Michael.”
In memory of Michael, we will be displaying a Memorial Plaque in the Gym Lobby:
Thank you Craig, Heather, Raquel, Arielle and extended family for sharing Michael with us. We thank God for Michael’s life, the impact he’s had on others & may his memory continue to inspire others to live lives of “love and service to others.”
Today we celebrated 100 days of learning in kindergarten.
We ate 100 snacks, played 100s bingo, colored numbers on the 100 chart to create a design, sorted items in groups of 10 to count to 100, and built towers with 100 wooden sticks. We even tracked how many times we counted to 100 by putting bears in a jar.
At the end of the day, we discovered we had counted to one hundred 303 times! What a fun day of learning!

It was an honor to have FCS grandparents join us in November on both campuses.

Our secondary campus welcomed grandparents to share in a special chapel service together. Student-lead worship opened the program followed by guest speaker, Ray Wisner, an FCS grandparent and former teacher.
The FCS Players presented a synopsis of Act 2 from their fall production of "Our Miss Brooks." Watch from our FCS YouTube channel.
On our elementary campus, grandparents joined our elementary students in the sanctuary of Calvary Christian Center for a fun, musical program before visiting the classrooms. Students recited scripture, played instruments and sang special songs like the fan favorite, "Gramma's House" (click here to see the video)!
We played a surprise interactive game called, "That's My Grandkid!" where unsuspecting grandparents got to guess what their grandchild said about them! It was full of laughs and silliness and heartfelt memories too! Thank you to all who played along!
Thank you to everyone who joined us. It is always a special time when grandparents come to visit!
