Keeping Up with the Eagles!
It’s Finally October! As the change in weather starts to set in and long hot days are disappearing, the focus for most will be enjoying the cooler days. Meanwhile, Desert Chapel is advancing more into the fall portion of the school year. Prayer, support, encouragement, and care is always needed before, during and after school as well as athletic events. Stand by your student as parents, teachers and staff pray faithfully for Godly leaders that will rise up and take a stand for their faith in the days ahead.
ASB For anyone who does not know what ASB is or represents the anagram is for Associated Student Body. The purpose is to unify the school, raise school spirit and have a break from academics. Being a part of ASB takes more than meetings and making decisions; you are a busy bee at Homecoming, helping out at the BBQ’s along with other behind the scenes adventures. We would like to thank everyone who helped at the carwash on Saturday. This helped raise over $500 for the school, so that we can have funds for exciting events coming soon. ASB lunches every Tuesday. Bake Sales will be starting soon. October 19th is Homecoming Night

~ Pumpkin Spice Latte ~
Hopeful y'all are as excited as we are for this fall season! If you want to stay warm and cozy with the cold autumn nights we will thankfully have ahead. You can cuddle up with a cozy blanket, watch a movie with your friends or family. To top that all off, have a warm homemade Pumpkin Spice Latte in your hand. It's a simple recipe with ingredients you may already have at home. Most importantly, have fun! Ingredients
★ 1 cup of milk ★ 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree ★ 1 tablespoon of sugar ★ ¼ teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon) ★ ¼ teaspoon teaspoon of pure vanilla extract ★ ¼ cup of coffee or hot chocolate ★ Whipped cream for topping
Combine the milk, pumpkin puree, sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla in a medium microwave safe bowl, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and vent with a small hole. Microwave until the milk is hot, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk vigorously until the milk mixture is foamy, about 30 seconds. Pour the espresso or coffee into a large mug and add the foamed milk. Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
We hope this was a simple and fun recipe for you and on behalf of the yearbook staff,
