We would love family pictures for our bulletin board!

For homework this week, students will create a Coat of Arms. Parents, please cut out the Coat of Arms when your child is finished and return it in the yellow folder by Friday.

On Wednesday, October 27th, second grade will lead chapel. Chapel begins at 8:00 a.m. and will end around 8:45 a.m. Parents and grandparents are welcome to join us on October 27th.
We do ask that all visitors must wear a mask.
For Chapel, we will talk about the Reformation and that God is with us wherever we go. I will send the chapel play home this week.
Please be sure that your child practices and memorizes his/her lines. Thank you so much for helping your child.

Class and Group pictures will be Wednesday, October 13. Students in Kindergarten through sixth grade will wear their school uniforms (Chapel shirts) for their class picture. Students in preschool classes will also take class pictures.

If your child needs to retake his/her individual picture or was absent the day of individual pictures, your child may wear church clothes or an outfit for retakes, and then change into his/her uniform (Chapel shirt) for class pictures. If your child is retaking his/her individual picture, please send $2.00 with your child to give to the photographer. There will not be an extra charge for those students who were absent on individual picture day, or for new students. Your child must have the form if you would like to order a class picture.

Please remember to wear tennis shoes and send a t-shirt for gym on Wednesday.

Please pray for our class, staff, and school. God blesses us with a wonderful school where we share God's love!
