March 2017

          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! 

I received so many lovely Valentines, and 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!

Our first memory verse for March will be John 13:34:
"A new commandment I give to you that you love one another; just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another."
This will be due on Friday, March 10.

Our next memory work 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 Friday, March 24.

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. 

Our Field Trip to the Chester County Historical Society is on Thursday, March 16. We are leaving school around 8:40 am. Please remember to pack a fully disposable lunch; we will not be bringing items back with us.
Thursday, March 16 is also Book/Movie Character Day. This is an all-school Spirit Day. I am sorry that the days fell together like this, but this is the only day that worked for both the CCHS staff and our class. First graders are welcome to bring a costume to change into when we get back from the trip. I will make sure that they have an opportunity to put on their costumes for the afternoon. Please do not send costume pieces that are weapons of any kind.

There will be no school on Friday, March 17.  This is a teacher in-service day. 

          The third quarter will end on Friday, March 31.  Report cards will be available Friday, April 7.

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!  We have received MANY great items already! Thanks so much for your generosity.
