Much to be Thankful For!

posted Nov 13, 2017, 11:27 PM by Caitlin Smith   [ updated Nov 13, 2017, 11:28 PM ]

As we prepare for winter and the celebration of Thanksgiving, I am reminded of how much I have to be thankful for. I also am reminded that there are those who are less fortunate than me. Jesus said, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” How can we show Christian love to others in their time of need? This is something we will be talking about in 5th grade these next few weeks. 

One way we love others is to help take care of them. We can do this by donating food to people who need it. This Wednesday (11/15), we will be bringing in non-perishable items as our chapel offering. These items will be taken to the HACAP Food Reservoir and given to people in our own community. The 5th grade class will be doing a service project at the reservoir with these donations.

Other events to be thankful for this week:

Monday-Friday (11/13-11/17)-Scholastic Book Fair is open before and after school in the church.
                        Book Fair hours posted here

Tuesday 11/14- Soup supper at 5:00pm in the church basement
            Band & Choir concert at 6:30pm in school gym 
            (please be in the gym around 6pm) 

Thursday 11/16- Read & Feed: Adults are invited to eat with their student and then                     accompany them over to the book fair to shop.

One last reminder, 3 week grades will come out next Monday (11/20).

Have a great week!

Quarter 2 is here!

posted Nov 5, 2017, 5:48 PM by Caitlin Smith

Conferences went well and I was able to meet with each one of my students' parents. Thank you for taking the time to come in and meet with me! If you ever have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to talk to me.

This week we will go on a field trip to see Doctor Kaboom in Cedar Falls!

We will have an early dismissal on Wednesday and Healthy Snack Sale on Thursday. 5th graders are responsible for donating the drinks for the sale. Please bring in at least 17 bottles of water or 100% juice.

The colder weather is here! Please remember to dress warmly and bring your coats, hats, and gloves. Now that daylight savings time has passed, shorts will no longer be allowed.

A new quarter means a clean slate so keep working hard and doing your best!

I've been working hard preparing for conferences and did not update the website for this week. Sorry! 

We did not have any spelling or grammar again this week due to conferences. However, we will have them next week.

We took a test today in Math so no math homework tonight.

Memory work for Friday is Romans 6:23. Here is the link to the song we listened to in class. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eELUOY3Wcsg&index=6&list=PLfAh5G6c6l0qx2Q_WRIG-AsVyxK6WrRZy

See you at conferences!
