Newsletter for the week of January 22nd

January 22, 2018

Memory work:  Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.  Romans 10:17

Dear Parents,
Happy Lutheran Schools’ week!  I am so thankful to be able to teach in a school where I can share my faith with the children and the staff every day. Our school is such a blessing from our Heavenly Father. I thank God for each one of our students, their families and for the congregations who support our school. Here are the plans for the week:

Throughout the week our children will meet with their chapel family groups for special devotions and other activities.

On Monday, we will work in our chapel families to put together the birthday bags for Operation Food Search.  Thank you for sending in all of those supplies.  It looks like we will be able to meet our goal of making 100 bags!

The elementary children are invited to participate in special dress days as part of our celebration.  Please help your student(s) make reasonable choices that would conform to a modest dress code. (These dress-up days are optional.  If your child chooses not to participate, then he/she should wear the normal school uniform.)

Monday: Comfy day-  wear you pjs or other comfortable clothes
Tuesday: Team spirit day- wear your favorite team jersey
Wednesday: 100th day of school- Decade Day- wear clothes from one of the past decades
Thursday: Crazy Hair, Hat and/or Neon day (Our class has jump rope for heart so wear/bring your best tennis shoes for jumping)
Friday: School spirit day- wear your favorite CCLS school spirit wear.   
                         
            This Wednesday is the 100th day of school.  Everyone is asked to bring 100 things to share.  If your child's item is edible, it should be individually wrapped.  Please don't spend a lot of money on this.  Be creative and look around your home.  
Reading and math are coming along nicely. I am so pleased with the students’ understanding of the new math concepts that are being introduced.  Keep practicing those subtraction facts each day.  Very soon, we will be learning the math concept of regrouping when subtracting.  We have started learning our lower case cursive letters!
Our next field trip will be on Tuesday morning, February 6th.  We will leave around 9:15 and  travel to Concordia Publishing House to learn about the book-making process. It is always a very interesting trip. We will return to school by 11:30.  Parents/grandparents are welcome to join us.  Please let us know if you are coming on the trip.

Have a great week! 
Yours in Christ,
Janet Leet
