Halftime Fun!

On Friday, December 9, K-2 will provide special halftime entertainment during one of the basketball games.  As part of their gym class, the children have learned a special routine to share with us!  Mrs. Randall would like the children to gather at 6:00 in the hallway of the Activity Center.  If possible, encourage your child to sport a red shirt or Rocket apparel and wear his/her gym shoes. Please look for your child's gym shoes on the floor under the backpack hooks. We hope everyone will be able to attend!..More Information

       Word a Day 2022-2023

               We will continue Word a Day
                     after the Christmas break.
                              Thank you!


1. Word a Day presentations are divided into themes throughout the school year.  Each child will be assigned a word and a certain day to  "show and tell" about their special word.
2. A schedule will be sent home indicating when your children will present to the class.
3. Please help you child to write a sentence and draw a picture describing the assigned word. Feel free to find a colored picture on the Internet, as well. There is a Word a Day template in your child's Skill Practice Binder to use each time he/she presents.
4. In addition to the paper definition and providing a picture, I encourage the children to show their word in a creative way.

Model Magic
toothpicks, craft sticks or other fun art supplies

Advent Devotion Booklets

During the weeks of Advent, our class will be using the Advent devotion series called, "Good News! Great Joy!".  Each school day there will be a reading from the Gospel of Luke and Matthew, based on a particular theme. The children will assemble a stable and add stickers to the manger scene display after each devotion is presented.  As the days go by, the manger scene will grow and grow until the last devotion on Christmas!

            Christmas Eve Recitations and Songs 2022

This year's Christmas Eve Service is titled, "A Children's Christmas Service".  Your child will be asked to learn specific Bible passages to recite in a group. There will also be a class song and a group song joining grades K-8.  When possible, please spend time practicing and reviewing these parts with your child. We do practice the recitations in school, but extra reinforcement from home is greatly appreciated! Watch the Memory Treasures site each week to learn when each song or recitation will be said or sung. Thanks for your help!
