December 8 - 12 Week 17

Dear parents,

Mrs. Cluck wrote our blog last week and included pictures of the 7th graders making their wreaths and their literature skits. I hope you had a chance to look at her blog. I did not write one of my own because she included all the information updates for both of us.

We have just a short time together before Christmas break, but so much to accomplish! Students have been working hard. This week they took their memory test for quarter 2, and finished up their AR points. We also had the opportunity to view the 3rd and 4th grade Advent service and participate in a faith family activity. They are working hard, but we can tell it is time for them to have a nice rest.

We have more to look forward to before our Christmas break. See information below:

Christmas concert… is Tuesday, December 16th starting at 7 PM.  Strings, bells, band and choirs will perform at this concert.  What a great way to support the kids in your class by attending the Christmas concert.

Geography Bee... will be held Tuesday the 16th starting at 9 AM.  Bee is held in the gym. 7th graders worked through the qualifying questions in History this week.

Christmas Party: Our Christmas party will be December 19th from 1:30 - 2:30. Once again, room moms are putting in the time. If you are able to offer any help or supplies please let Mrs. Wadley, Mrs. Horton, or Mrs. Paske know what you can do to help. Remember Friday, December 19th is a FULL day of school.

Christmas Eve Services: Celebrate Christ's birth!           

December 24th services at Zion will be held: 3:00, 5:00, 11:00 - If you haven't heard our congregation sing Silent Night on Christmas Eve -'s something else. So moving.
Christmas Day service 9:00 AM

I will pray for your families this Christmas season. Blessings as you prepare.

Mrs. Murray
