I hope you are enjoying this beautiful weekend. Here are a few things coming up this week:
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Wednesday, March 1, the elementary classes will be going skating at Simmons arena. All students and adults are required to wear a helmet on the ice. Also, please ensure that your child has mittens, hat and snow pants to wear on the ice. Students who choose not to skate should be picked up at the school no later than 12:00.
We will need drivers for this event. We also appreciate any help parents can give us tying skates and getting the little ones ready to get one the ice. We will be leaving the school at 1:15. Ice time is from 1:45 – 2:45. All students must be picked up at the rink, instead of at the school, by 2:45. If your child is in after school care they will be transported back to the school.
Next Monday, March 6th grade one and two will be travelling to Geneva Villa to visit with our friends. It is Cruise theme month at Geneva Villa. The residents will be sharing stories of trips they have taken. Students are asked to come prepared to share about a trip they have taken as well. If you have pictures of that trip that students can take to help them tell their story, please send them with you child on Monday, March 6th. We will also be doing a short craft with the residence.
Permission slips will be send home with your child tomorrow. We will need drivers for this event. Please indicate on the permission slip if you are available to drive and how many students you can take in your car. We will be leaving the school at 12:40 and returning for 2:30.
For Valentines day students made valentine cards for all the residence at the Villa. The residence were very grateful to receive these cards. We even got a letter in response, thanking them for the cards. Here is the letter:
