January 2015

Welcome back and Happy New Year!  I pray that everyone had an enjoyable and restful Christmas.  Thank you to all who helped with our classroom Christmas celebration.  The children had a wonderful time, and I appreciate the effort that went into making it such an exciting day!

Our classroom is full of excited learners this year!  We are especially enjoying the time that we spend with the reading moms and dads in the mornings.  The children enjoy being able to spend some time out in the hallway, practicing their reading skills.  Thank you to those who have been able to assist thus far!  If you would like to receive information about being a reading helper, please send a note to school.

In Bible, we will be talking about the life of Moses. 

We will be learning the Ten Commandments, beginning with Commandments 1-3.

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make for yourself an idol.
  3. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God.
These Commandments will be due on Tuesday, January 13.

On Monday, January 19, there will be no school, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  During the previous week, we will have discussed the reason for remembering Martin Luther King, Jr., and all that he did for our nation.
On January 22, we will have a school-wide Spirit Day.  This month’s Spirit Day is Clash Day.  Wear the most UN-matching clothes possible!  Have fun!

Please send your child to school dressed appropriately for the winter weather.  This includes a coat that cans zipper/button up the front, a hat or hood, and gloves or mittens.  We do go outside when it is possible to do so.

Important Dates to Remember:

Tuesday, January 13 – Commandments 1-3 due
Wednesday, January 14 – Second Quarter Ends
Monday, January 19 – No School
Wednesday, January 21 – Report Cards Sent via Ren Web
Thursday, January 22 – Clash Day

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me by note, email (, or telephone (610-467-0622).  Enjoy the winter weather, and stay warm!
