The students had a wonderful time today thanks to Rick Teepen and his “Snakes Alive” program. They gained a great deal of knowledge about snakes and a greater understanding of God’s creation.
This Wednesday, we will be observing “See You at the Pole” as we join with other students across the nation to pray for our country. The elementary and middle school will meet at the pole at 8:00 AM. The preschool will follow directly afterward. Feel free to join us or take time to pray during the day if you can’t.
This Friday is Gold Dress Down Day. We want to send care packages to the kids at Children’s Hospital. This was explained in a flyer sent home last week. I am enclosing a list of what we need from each grade. When everything is gathered up, we will put them together for delivery in October. Please remember that when we do promotions such as this, you are not required to donate anything. We just want to give you the opportunity to be blessed.
There is a volunteer signup list in the teacher workroom.. Teachers need volunteers to help with various activities. We also need help in the kitchen. If you have any free time, please signup to volunteer.
Please send in any boxtops or labels you have collected over the summer. Boxtops will be sent in for processing in October. We have been able to get several items for the physical education program using the labels and coke caps.
Midterms will be sent home on next Monday,September 29, 2014 for those students who have a “C” or below in any subject.
There will be no school October 16-17 2014 due to the ACSI Nexus convention. The school staff will be traveling to just outside Washington DC to attend the presentation.
