Week of May 21, 2018

“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8

It’s STILL all about Jesus!

Bible Lessons for this week: Paul and Timothy (1 and 2 Timothy),  Tabitha (Acts 9:36-43)

Memory Work:

Wed., May 23: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8

We will not have a spelling test this week.

Everyone worked hard on their “How to” Writing projects, and everyone was able to share their writing on Friday.

Happy Birthday to Makenna and Ethan. They both have summer birthdays. Makenna’s birthday is June 14. Ethan’s birthday is July 23.  God’s blessings, Makenna and Ethan!

If your child has a summer birthday, and you would like to bring treats to celebrate, please speak to me. We can schedule a day for this. It would be best to let each child have his/her own day for treats.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, May 22 our class will tour the Hemme Brothers Creamery and Blind Pony Fish Hatchery. Both of these places are near Sweet Springs. We will leave school around 8:15 am and return by 3:00 pm. Students will need to bring a sack lunch (including a drink) on that day. We actually have more than enough drivers, so if you would rather not drive, please let me know. If you do not speak to me, I will plan on those parents who returned the note and volunteered to drive tol be transporting our students. Thank you! I will assign students to ride in each vehicle. Be sure to return your signed permission slip.

You are invited to attend the 8th grade graduation on Thursday, May 24 at 6:00 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity to show your support for our eighth graders.

Our school year will conclude with a closing chapel at 9:00 am on Friday, May 25. There will be an awards ceremony following the chapel service. You are welcome to join us for chapel and the awards ceremony. Students will be dismissed following the awards ceremony.

Chapel offerings for May will be given to Right to LIfe.

We continue to collect Box Tops for Education and Best Choice labels. The Box Tops and labels are sent in, and our school receives money.

If you have not enrolled for the 2018-2019 school year please return the letter of intent to reserve a place for your child to attend St. Paul’s next year. To hold your child’s spot, you must pay $100 deposit no later than May 25 (the last day of this school year). Please do not delay!

As you make your plans for the summer, be sure to sign up for the summer reading program at the library--either Boonslick or Sedalia Public Library. Both libraries have terrific programs for children as well as wonderful books to read. Reading is an easy way to keep your brain learning all summer long.

And...don’t forget to attend church and Sunday school. There are also opportunities for Vacation Bible School. St. Paul’s and Our Savior have a joint Bible school that you are welcome to attend. It will be July 22-26.

Your child is bringing home a flyer about Vacation Bible School and the summer reading program at the library.

Mark Your Calendars:

May 22: Field trip to Hemme Brothers Creamery and Blind Pony Hatchery

May 24: 8th Grade Graduation (6:00 pm)

May 25: Chapel at 9:00 a.m. Dismiss at 11:00 (approximately)

July 22-26: Vacation Bible School

As we close out the year, I would like to thank everyone for their support throughout the year. I appreciate your prayers through my husband’s hospitalization and rehab. I appreciate your support as we had to return to St. Louis for checkups.

I also appreciate the opportunity to work with your child and see your child grow and learn. Sometimes people will ask me, “Are you ready for summer?” Well, yes and no. Yes, I am ready for a break and the opportunity to rejuvenate. But the children are right where I want them now!!! They have made so much progress. They are no longer beginning readers. Many are reading chapter books and solving math problems that they couldn’t attempt at the beginning of the year. Most importantly, they have grown in their faith and love for Jesus. Our last Bible Lesson book is titled “Tell About Jesus.” May God grant you many opportunities to share Jesus with others this summer.

Have a blessed summer!

--Mrs. Brandt

The class is working on “How to” writing. It is taking a little longer than I had planned for us to progress on this. Therefore, students will probably share on Thursday, Friday, and next Monday. It is important that students practice reading aloud their writing at home before they present it to the class. So your child will bring home a copy of the writing the day before s/he presents it to the class.

Happy Birthday to Stella and Hailyn. They both have summer birthdays. Stella’s birthday is June 11. Hailyn’s birthday is June 16.  God’s blessings, Stella and Hailyn!
