We had a great time celebrating science and technology week. Students had the opportunity to view the high school students’ Art of Science displays and make comets with an engineer from UPEI. It was a very fun and educational week of activities!
Operation Christmas Child
One small shoe box can have a big impact! You can be a part of changing children’s lives all over the world in Jesus’ name through the power of a simple gift with Operation Christmas Child. This excellent ministry blesses thousands of children each year who would otherwise never receive a gift. Not only that, but these children have the opportunity to hear the good news of the gospel! Last year, we sent 350 shoe boxes from our school and we are hoping to do so yet again! Empty boxes were sent home with students last week. Collection day will be Monday, November 14th. Thanks to a generous donor, the shipping fees have already been covered so all you and your child have to do is get busy filling the box. I don’t know about you, but I am already excitedly planning what gifts to include.
What goes into the box is fun, but what comes out of it is eternal.
I would like to thank all of the parents that took the time to drive our class to Geneva Villa. It was a great time of visiting with the residence and getting to know them. I was so proud of how well every student interacted with our friends at the Villa and showed God’s love to the residents there. Here are a few shots from the afternoon. Thank you Ken Hovland for capturing this so well!
The Weather is getting colder!
The weather is getting colder and the children are feeling it on the play ground. If you have not done so yet, please send mittens and a hat for the children’s recess time. Also, please ensure that they have a warm jacket. We love to play outside in the fresh air when we are dressed for it!
Students will be learning a new Bible verse this week. Mrs. McGonnell will send a sheet home so they can go over it each night.
But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.
