Chapel offerings:  Our offerings for December and January will be given to Lutherans for Life. LFL is a Gospel-motivated voice for life. They provide materials that help people to see Jesus, the Lord of Life, who rescues from sin and death and who gives the hope of eternal life through Him.

 

Happy Birthday to Yarasdi! Her birthday is January 19. God’s blessings, Yarasdi!

 

There is a PTL meeting on Thursday, January 17 at 6:00 pm. Your presence is requested. Come and be a voice in this organization that seeks to support the education of your children.

 

Please continue to sell Merchant Discount cards. You may return the money for the cards you sell anytime. You may request more cards to sell by contacting the office, Shane Weber, or me. This is a great fundraiser for our school. For only $5 the card provides numerous discounts to various businesses in the Sedalia area. Remember, the class that sells the most (by percentage) will win a pizza party. Yum! Yum!

 

Scrip: You may support our school by purchasing SCRIP cards. These are "gift" cards that you spend at businesses, and a percentage of the purchase price comes back to our school. Talk to Ms. Janice in the office, and she will tell you which cards she has in stock. She can also order cards that are not in stock. Just stop by the office to talk to Ms. Janice and support St. Paul's Lutheran School.

 

If you do not have a Church home, you are invited to join us at St. Paul's for worship. Saturday evening services are at 5:30. Sunday morning worship is at 9:00, followed by Sunday School and Bible Classes for high school youth and adults.

Week of January 7, 2019

Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10

 

Welcome back and welcome to 2019! I pray that all of you had a wonderful time with family and friends over the Christmas break. We are blessed to begin a new year knowing that Jesus is our Savior and is with us each moment of every day.

 

Bible Lessons for this week: Simeon and Anna Welcome the Savior, The Wise Men and the Flight to Egypt

 

Memory Work: Please take the time to help your child memorize the assigned verses.

Wed., Jan. 9: Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1

Fri., Jan.11: Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ. Romans 10:17

Tues., Jan. 15: [John] said, “Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29

 

First Grade Spelling Words: rake, lake, cake, rain, pail, nail, sail, vase, game, pay, hay. Challenge words: parade, erase, about.

Second Grade Spelling Words: mice, face, goal, gym, city, page, plug, crash, place, gone, brag, nice. Challenge words: circus, once.

The second grade will write circus and once in cursive. We will practice this at school, but extra practice at home will be helpful as well.

 

Be sure to return the December Book It calendars. Please be sure that a parent has signed the calendar in order for your child to receive the certificate for a free personal pan pizza from Pizza Hut. Hopefully your child has been reading over the break and recording this on the January calendar.

 

Our class is also participating in the Missouri Reading Circle Program. Students who read 20 or more books by the end of the school year will receive a certificate at closing chapel in May. I would like the students to read a variety of genre of books to broaden their reading experience. We talk about genre a lot in class, so it should not be a foreign topic for your child. A log for this program is being sent home with information about genre attached. Remember, this is an ongoing reading experience that can extend into May. The Missouri Reading Circle Log does not need to be returned until your child has read 20 books. The time spent reading these books counts for the Book It calendar also.

 

I am sending home a form to help me have an accurate account of your child’s church and Sunday School attendance over the break. Please complete the form and return it. Thanks!

 

Chapel offerings:  Our offerings for December and January will be given to Lutherans for Life. LFL is a Gospel-motivated voice for life. They provide materials that help people to see Jesus, the Lord of Life, who rescues from sin and death and who gives the hope of eternal life through Him.

 

I hope that you enjoy the calendar that your child made for you for Christmas. A lot of hard work and love was put into that project. You can appreciate a little bit of your child’s artistic talent each month!
