PRAYER: adding to our prayer life with extra prayers and reading the Bible

                                  FASTING: sacrificing something we enjoy to do or eat to connect with Jesus

                                 ALMSGIVING: giving to others with donations or loving service  


Image result for A Wrinkle in TimeWe are reading  A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. This award winning book tells the story of three children who are transported on an adventure through time and space to champion good and defeat evil. This novel combines the genres of fantasy and science fiction in an engaging and entertaining story.

Iowa Skills Testing begins on Monday March 5th, and will run all week. Students should try to get plenty of sleep and eat a good breakfast. Students will need three sharpened #2 pencils. During testing, we take a break for a morning snack, so please send in a healthy snack which can include juice. The classroom is kept cooler, so students should wear the SES fleece to be comfortable.

Please restock supplies…pens, pencils, colored pencils, glue stick, and sharpies. 

We have a “working snack” each morning. Students can bring in a small snack that can be eaten easily while we work. Although peanut products are allowed at lunch, please pack a “peanut free” snack. We eat snack in different classrooms, depending on the day’s schedule, therefore,  we are encouraging all students to be “allergy aware”.
