I wish you all a wonderful Christmas as you celebrate the birth of Christ, true God and true man, the One who came to save us all from sin, death, and the devil. I pray that you may experience that true joy of the Christmas miracle this year. May you also have a wonderful, safe time with family and friends.
Mr. Lucas Gerlach
A few additional notes...
Class Christmas Party: Our party will take place from 1:00-3:00 on Thursday, December 19th. Parents are invited to sign up to help using this Signup Genius page. During our party, we will have snacks, make crafts, play games, and exchange gifts. Students were given names for the gift exchange last week and may bring in the wrapped presents any time this week. Presents should have the recipient's name but not the name of the giver. Other details were sent in an email last week. On Friday, we will continue our celebration with a greater focus on the birth of Jesus.
PE at Lebanon Lutheran School: Because we are still in need of a bus, PE will not take place at the gymnasium at Lebanon Lutheran School until after Christmas break. We do not yet know how long after Christmas break this will begin.
Winter Clothes: As the weather gets colder, please ensure that your child comes to school in clothing that is suitable and will keep them warm. Students should wear winter coats, hats, mittens, snow pants, and boots when appropriate. Without these items, students may be asked to stay indoors or to stay in a shoveled area.
Watertown Food Pantry: The Watertown Food Pantry is a non-profit, Christian-based organization created to provide food needs at no cost to those individuals and families residing in the Watertown School District who find themselves economically distressed. Current priority food items include macaroni & cheese, corn, green beans, chicken noodle soup, cream of mushroom soup, canned pears, canned peaches. Bringing actual objects for an offering rather than money is a great way to make giving more "real" for kids. Students are also encouraged to continue to donate money.
