March 2016

Dear Parents,                                                                                          

          In just a few short weeks spring will officially arrive, and with it, the glory of God’s creation as it begins to blossom.  If you’ve never taken the time to fully appreciate the signs of spring, do so this year.  Each new leaf, robin, and bud is a gift that God has sent for us to enjoy, and to remind us that He makes all things new.  I love spring, in case that wasn't clear!    :-)

Mrs. Brown and I received so many lovely Valentines, and we would like to thank each and every child for being an important part of our class.  You are loved and appreciated so much more than you know!

There will be no school on Friday, March 4.  This is a teacher in-service day. 

Our first memory verse for March will be Psalm 24:1-2:  "The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein, for He has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers."
This will be due on Thursday, March 10.

The final memory work for March will be Matthew 28:6: “He is not here, for He has risen, as He said.  Come, see the place where He lay.” 
This will be due on Tuesday, March 22.

Please remember to send in your child's Bible memory verse on the due dates so that we can place the new verse into the book. 

There will be no school from Thursday, March 24-Monday, March 28 to celebrate the Easter holiday.  Praise God, He is risen!

          On Wednesday, March 23, I will have a small Easter celebration with the children in the afternoon.  If you are willing to send a salty snack, sweet snack, drinks, or plates and napkins, please let me know.  Thanks!

          Thursday, March 17 will be  Sports Day.  Children are invited to dress as a player of a favorite sport, or simply dress to support a favorite sports team.

          The third quarter will end on Thursday, March 31.  Report cards will be available Thursday, April 1.

As our year continues to progress, I must emphasize the importance of working with your child at home to reinforce what he or she is learning.  Good study habits begin at an early age.  Take some time each evening to practice spelling words, math flashcards, and the Bible memory verse.  Even just a few minutes for each area can make a huge difference.  Thank you for your continued faithfulness in supporting your child’s education.
          Please remember to send items in for our class basket for the Silent Auction.  Our theme is Disney Extravaganza!  Thanks!
