Part Time K-8 Art Teacher Needed

Phil-Mont Christian Academy is seeking a part time (75%) K-8 Art Teacher.

This person will be expected to emphasize age appropriate fine arts and design concepts, art historical context and a Christian world view through a well-developed curriculum in each class. They should be able to demonstrate, through example, a balance of traditional skills and techniques with current approaches to making art. The role being offered is part of a Fine Arts team and requires participation in annual fine arts events. Interested teachers should complete and return a Faculty Application and send a letter and resume to

Reason for the need:
Phil-Mont’s current High School Art Teacher, Mr. Matt Stemler, has accepted a position as an Adjunct Professor at Cairn University’s School of Liberal Arts & Sciences, starting after this current school year. Phil-Mont’s current Elementary and Middle School Art Teacher, Mrs. Becky Suggs, has been offered and accepted the role of High School Art Teacher in his place, which leaves the school with a need to add a new K-8 Art Teacher. We look forward to this new opportunity, and pray that God would bless Mr. Stemler in his new school, that God would bless Mrs. Suggs in her transition, and that God would bless Phil-Mont with another wonderful K-8 Art Teacher in the near future.

Soccer for Syria

Many have called it the worst crisis of our time. The situation in the Middle East, particularly the internal conflict in Syria, has caused millions of individuals to be displaced. Civil war has ravaged the region for several years, and with the rise of various radical groups the situation does not look hopeful. The Syrian conflict also brought about a medical crisis, with hospitals being targeted and medical personnel killed. The need for medical care is increasing among Syrian refugees.

In light of these developments and the ongoing crisis, the National Honor Society of Phil-Mont will be hosting a fundraiser for Syrian refugees in both Syria and the surrounding region. Join us on March 31 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm for a soccer tournament fundraiser. All donations will be used to fund the work of the Syrian American Medical Society, which runs over 100 medical facilities in Syria that offer medical attention to Syrians. Please support this event. Your donations will bring humanitarian aid and medical equipment to Syrians.
