Our Promise: Fostering a firm foundation in faith, future, and family
March Health Theme – It’s All About the Smile
Volume 13, Issue 24 Virginia I. Terrell, Principal March 8, 2018
From God’s Word – In the account of Jesus feeding 5,000 people with a couple of fish and five loaves of bread, He told the disciples to tell the people sit in an area where grass was growing. “Come on, folks! Get comfortable! Dine with Me!” How reminiscent of Psalm 23:2, “He makes me lie down in green pastures.” He supplies abounding comfort amongst the rocky sorrows of sin. Our all-atoning Savior relieves sin’s wickedness and its consequences with the lush security of His grace. Go ahead. Sit down with Jesus. He invites and welcomes sinners. “Have the people sit down.” John 6:10
Focus on Kids – Mark your calendar for Wednesday, March 14, for 6:30 p.m. Then, come to our PTL Meeting. We plan to celebrate all the blessings we have through our children, and showcase some of our activities. Focal points will include:
- Yoga demonstration showing techniques of relaxation and stretching our young students have learned
- A video capturing highlights of our Young Authors’ Curriculum Fair
- Special presentation for our June graduates, D’Angelo, Christopher, Richard, Jeremiah, Serenity, Marlene, and CeCe.
See you there! Don’t forget. Refreshments will be served afterward. Plan to stay and linger a little longer.
Service Project – We are asking all of you to donate lids and caps that will be used to make a bench to honor our United States Veterans. The bench will be placed outside the very VFW our students visited last November. In today’s folder, you will find a list of what is acceptable for donation. Beginning now, students are asked to bring the caps and lids to school through Monday, April 30, the final donation day.
Children’s Chorus/Chime Choir – Our children will sing for Palm Sunday worship, Sunday, March 25, at 9:30. Our fifth and sixth graders will also accompany the singing. Children should arrive in their classrooms at 9:15 that morning, in their Chapel dress. We are looking forward to a beautiful anthem in praise of Jesus.
Chapel Schedule – Please note there will be NO CHAPEL Wednesday, March 28. Instead, Chapel that week will be the following day, March 29, Maundy Thursday. Students will wear Chapel dress Thursday, rather than Wednesday.
Breakfast With the Easter Bunny – Plan to stay after church Palm Sunday for a brunch featuring a special guest, the Easter Bunny. Hippity-hop! Fun is on the horizon! Proceeds of the brunch will help defray the cost of the upcoming Walcamp trip for fifth and sixth grade.
Prayer Shirts – Orders for prayer shirts, to be worn on National Day of Prayer, are due Thursday, March 15.
