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, I hope you do 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 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 Bible memory verse is 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 is due on Friday, March 20.
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.

Happy birthday, Fiona!
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.
