And we're off!
After making our way through the third week of school, it seems that we are getting in the swing of things. We have begun to stick more closely to the schedule, and we have begun to have regular homework assignments.
Please pay special attention during these first few weeks of homework. It is essential that your children develop strong study habits. Set a time and choose a particular place that will be a part of your child's everyday homework routine. Also, be certain to check your child's assignment booklet to help ensure that all necessary homework is getting done.
Thank you for your prayers for the students, for me, and for the school during these first few weeks. It is wonderful to be part of this caring Christian community.
A few additional notes...
Chapel on Monday This Week: This Monday, Becky Grossnick will be coming to talk to our school about Lutheran Bible Translators, the recipient of our chapel offerings for the first quarter. We will therefore have chapel on Monday morning at 8:30 instead of our usual Wednesday time. As always, your are invited to join us.
Upcoming Fieldtrip: On September 20th, our class will be going to Woodlawn-Union Park in Hartford to attend the Hartford Buckskinners event. This will be a great opportunity to experience a little of what it was like to live in the past. Students may wish to bring no more than $5 to purchase small items at the event. Right now, I need to confirm with some parents about the number of children they can take, but we could probably use one more driver.
PTL Meeting and Potluck: This Tuesday, find out more about our school and how you can be involved at the PTL meeting and potluck. There's sure to be lots of delicious food and yummy information.
