Newsletter for the week of December 17th

December 17, 2018

Memory work:
            There is no memory work this week.  J

Dear Parents,
            Here we are in our last week before the Christmas break.  The children are certainly excited!  Tonight is our Advent service at Concordia Lutheran Church in Kirkwood. Due to the construction, parking will be a challenge.  Please feel free to park in The Magic House lot or Nipher’s lot both of which are across the street from Concordia. The children are to meet Mrs. Klug and me in the Concordia Center at 6:25.  Please make sure that your child has used the bathroom before meeting us.  After service, please meet your child where we are sitting.  This is always a special worship event in the lives of our CCLS families. Dress for the evening is dressy church clothes.
            Today and Wednesday are our last country reports.  The students have all done an exceptional job on their posters and their reports.  Now it is time to return all of the country books to the school library.  Please have your child bring those back tomorrow.  Thank you!
            The end of the quarter is this Friday, so please send in your Church and Sunday School form as well as your service project form.
            Friday is our last day.  It is a full day of school with the Christmas Party at two o’clock.  Thanks so much to our parents for planning our party and to all of the parent helpers who will be here to help us celebrate. Friday is a FREE DRESS DAY thanks to all of you who brought in shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child and canned goods for Kirk Kare.
            We just received some exciting news.  We will welcome a new student to our class on Monday, January 7th.  Her name is Alaina Sanders.  She is visiting with us today and will officially start after break. 
I wish each of you a very Blessed Christmas.  Whether you are traveling or staying at home, I hope that you find time to relax and to enjoy your family. I will be taking a before Christmas trip to Chicago to see the Kentucky Wildcats play basketball against North Carolina. Then back here to celebrate Christmas with my St. Louis family and friends. My Kentucky daughter and her family will be here on the 26th to celebrate and then on the 31st. I will fly to Philadelphia to spend some time with my 97 year old father.
We are back together again on Monday, January 7th.  God’s Blessings from all of us to all of you.

Yours in our newborn Savior,
