Move-in Day

Move-in Day

Owens WFAC move-in day

The Move!

 

They came with hand trucks and dollies,

carts, muscles and empty hands

to carry the old into the new,

fraying a way to marry

creativity to worship

under one canopy.

 

They came

those who would lend a hand

from disciplines other than the Arts,

Drama, Music, Woodworking:

Math, Science, Bible, Spanish,

Social Sciences, English…

Even the soccer team

playing a different field

with their strong arms and legs

 

This is what love does

when together we hold

a common vision for a holy future

 

How they love each other, said

those who observed

how many hands made light work

And because of that they know

who we are

 

Together, one body

With creativity

and love

We worship

That’s who we are

 

Let your work be seen by your servants, and your glory by their children, and may the gracious care of the Lord our God be ours: prosper the work of our hands for us!  Prosper the work of our hands! Psalm 90: 16-17

Access to RenWeb will change.

Access to RenWeb will change.

Dear Families,

We wanted to make you aware of an upcoming change that may affect your usage of ParentsWeb or the RenWeb Home App.

Four years ago, RenWeb was acquired by another company called FACTS, and on Friday, October 12, they are launching a new website and rebranding the RenWeb company to the FACTS name.

What does this mean for you?

 The way you log into your accounts will not change (whether in ParentsWeb or on the RenWeb Home app). Your usernames and passwords will remain the same.

 You can still log into the RenWeb Home app, although you may see new colors and logos in the app.

 If you currently go to RenWeb.com to access ParentsWeb, you will be able to continue doing so for a time, but you’ll want to start making the switch and logging in at FACTSMgt.com.

 There are additional login instructions on the Parent Resources sheet that FACTS provided. It’s available here.

If the name RenWeb is going away, are any other names going away?

Yes, but FACTS is taking a methodical process to the product name changes. The RenWeb Home app will continue to be called the RenWeb Home app. You can search “RenWeb Home” in the App Store or Google Play to find it.

The name ParentsWeb will be changing to FACTS Family Online. However, you will still login using the same credentials at FACTSMgt.com and you will still use it the same way once you’ve logged in. See this sheet for more details.

Thank you for your flexibility and please let the school office know if you have any other questions regarding the change.

 

Please contact the business office with any questions.

Resources for Families

To help with communicating changes to your families, we’ve created a library of helpful resources to provide them with information. You’ll see the details on the upcoming changes, as well as why we’ve made them and when they’ll take effect. This includes a PDF with family FAQ’s, a form letter you can send to parents, and a black and white version of the PDF’s. You can find these resources at FACTSrebrand.com.
