Mira a los hijos e hijas del Rey. Look it's the sons and daughters of the King!

Hello Parents,'

What a wonderfully packed week of fun we had this past school week! We enjoyed the last "Children of the King chapel. We wore our special "Child of the King" yellow crowns adorned with our monthly chapel stickers. At chapel, we were reminded that we are new creations, we are chosen, we are God's light, we are his treasure, we are one family in God, we are forgiven and we are so loved by God. We are so blessed that we are so loved by the King and we get to share this love with others people in God's world. We also visited the 1st grade, classroom, met the 1st grade teacher, and toured the classroom. We we were also privileged by welcoming a friend and the a student college student Jazy to our classroom. Our student friend joined us for a story and creative project. Jazy is studying to become a teacher and is helping our classroom with many learning and fun activities for the last weeks of school. For a surprise show-n-tell, we met one of our student's pet. The little dog was so cute and enjoyed licking the birthday cupcake frosting from some of the student's hands. Lastly, we had our last reading buddies day and made a special project to remember our Buddy Adventures.

In Christ's service, Maestra Tijerina

¡Un Visita de Sorpresa-La Senorita Luciana y su charango!-A surprise visit from Miss Luciana and her charango! The charango is a small Andean stringed instrument of the lute family. The instrument is widespread throughout the Andean regions of Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, northern Chile and northwestern Argentina, where it is a popular musical instrument that exists in many variant forms. Miss Lucieana demonstrated the instrument, played the charango and sang songs with the children, Then she allowed the students to see, touch and play the "Charango" too. We were thankful Miss Luciana stopped by to share her "Charango". I hope the children were inspired by the music and the charango Miss Luciana shared.

¡Tengo algo especial para mis amigos-I have a treat to share with friends!

Feliz Cumpleaños Maestra-Happy Birthday Teacher
