We had a great time leading chapel this morning! The students put a lot of hard work into it! Our goal was to remind people that God made each one of us unique with a special purpose. All we need to do is wait for Him to show us what it is!!
We took some time on Monday to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. day. We read a book called Happy Birthday, Martin, made our own books about the life of Martin Luther King, Jr., and then did a writing pretending that we actually got to meet him. I hope you had a chance to read that writing. I was very proud of the students and what they learned from Martin Luther King, Jr. We also talked about the fact that things are better than they were during Martin's time, but they are still not the way that God wants them to be. It is our job to keep working on it!
Next week I am gong to launch something new in our classroom! We are calling it Lunch Club. On Mondays and Wednesday during lunch small groups of either boys or girls will stay in during lunch recess and play games with me! I am excited to try this so that I can continue to get to know your child!
Next week Tuesday is our AR party from 3:00-4:30. Everyone is invited! We are planning on giving students the choice of watching Ratatouille or Beezus and Ramona. Popcorn and juice boxes will be served for our snack Please let me know if your child is not able to attend! Otherwise we will see you at 4:30!
We are officially half way through the school year! Report cards for the second marking period are coming home today. Please take a chance to look them over, sign the back, and return to school.
It's hard to believe, but the Winter Program is coming up soon! Our performance is on Thurs. Feb. 15 at 6:30 PM. Students should wear blue jeans or dark pants on the bottom and their grey "We are 1" KCE themed shirt. They will be able to meet me in our classroom at 6:15 PM. If you arrive before 6:15 PM please keep your student with you until 6:15. Also, we consider this to be a family event so if you bring performer's siblings, please make sure that they sit with you and not somewhere on the bleachers by themselves. If younger children are being noisy we respectfully ask that you take them to the atrium so those around you are able to listen to the performance without distraction.
One final note: performances like this are a lot of work and we could use your help. If you are willing and able to help with stage set-up or take-down, please contact Krista Voetberg at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great weekend!
