We are planning our 100th day celebration for Friday, February 5. We are encouraging the kids to dress like they are 100 years old.  Also, they may bring a pair of slippers, a small blanket, and a small pillow so that our Senior Citizens can take a rest and watch a movie in the afternoon!!

New Bible verses will go home sometime during the week.  We will not have another Bible test until Friday, February 12.

Spelling List 17 was sent home on Wednesday, January 20.  I told the students that we would have the test, but I have decided to cancel this test.  We will work with this list in class, and there will be no Spelling Test this week. 

We will be having our Bible test on Friday on Psalm 1:1-6.

First and Second Grade would like to celebrate our 100th day soon.  We would like each student to bring $5.00 as soon as possible to cover the costs of snacks and crafts.  Also, we would love for the students to dress up like they are 100 years old. We will let you know several days in advance so that you have time to prepare. We are looking forward to a very fun day!

This week is Spirit Week!!!

The lunch menu has changed and themed to match each day.

Also, we will be doing a "Battle of the Grades" song for a Lip Sync competition.  We will be doing "I Will Follow Him" from the movie Sister Act.  Please encourage the students practice this song as much as possible.
