Dear Parents,

On Monday mornings we will begin each week with a time of praise and worship for all 3rd-6th graders.  Mr. Weimer has arranged to have the parent of one of his students lead this special time from 8:00-8:20.  The students will still line up and come up to the room to put down their bookbags before we go to the Chapel and start the week with this time of honoring the Lord!

VISITING THE RESIDENTS AT SUNRISE SENIOR LIVING:
On Pi Day our students enjoyed eating many of the scrumptious pies you so generously sent.  Some of the pies we shared with our neighbors.  We walked next door, carrying pies and sharing some joy.  We took just a few minutes to greet the residents in the main parlor and to sing “Jesus Loves Me.”  Several residents were clearly touched and some joined in our song.  Just before leaving, one of our students led in prayer for each of them to enjoy a blessed day.  We hope to return just before Easter to share a craft and add greetings and prayer.
