Wolf Ridge 2019
Once again we had an AMAZING trip to Wolf Ridge with our 5th graders this week. Special thanks to Mrs. McGraw, Mr. Martin Elwell, Mr. John Dufresne, and Mrs. Crisi Shoutz for serving as chaperones.
Holy Week Services
We are in the midst of the most sacred week of the year, and the days ahead are filled with perhaps the most beautiful liturgies of the year. I encourage you to take this opportunity to experience the Easter Triduum with your children in a special way by participating in these liturgies.
Christian Passover Meal
We had a beautiful celebration of the Last Supper today in our Christian Passover or Seder Meal. Be sure to talk with your children about the beautiful rituals -- handwashing, lights, special foods, etc.
Many thanks to our helpers including Bev Mathwig, Melissa Thompson, Nick and Freya Olson, and Crisi Shoutz.
Our students also enjoyed a presentation by Climb Theatre today. Ask them about these lessons related healthy portions and reduction of food waste. Here is just a short example of the wonderful presentations!
We need to place our ticket order for the SoSP Family Twins Game scheduled for Saturday, May 11 at 1:00 ASAP. Tickets are $20 each. If you still want to go, you need to order your tickets in the school office and send in payment by Monday 4/22. It promises to be a fun day for our school families!
Just a reminder that we will not have school tomorrow 4/19 because of Good Friday, but we WILL have school on Monday, 4/22 -- a make-up day.
Family Life Instruction
Family Life classes for grades 4 and 5 will begin next week. Parents are asked to please return the resources that were provided to you as we will need them in the classroom. All 4th and 5th grade parents are welcome to come to our speaker on Friday, May 3 at 12:45. Mrs. Chris Codden will once again share her puberty talk with our 5th grade students.
