Week 22 Jan 26 - 30

Hello families,
Don't forget it is National Lutheran Schools week this week! See the dress days below. Help guide your children in their choice of dress. If they do not want to participate in the dress days, standardized dress is required.
   
Also - the change war information is below. This is a fun activity to raise money and ALL proceeds got to Pastor Sam.

I have already donated $10 in dollar bills for my 7th graders to put in other classrooms' buckets in order to deduct from their change collected in the competition. I thought a little encouragement would help them along! The junior high teachers are having a great time 'encouraging' our classes to put the DOLLAR bills in Mrs. Beaty's or Mr. Braddy's buckets. :) All in good fun!

Change War for Pastor Sam and the Christian Resource Center in India:
Each classroom will have a tub outside of their door throughout NLSW for students to add change (positive) and dollar bills (negative).  The classrooms (prek-3 & 4-8) with the most positive amount by the end of the week will receive a Pizza Party!

Dates to Remember

Sundays, January 8-March 15, 9:30-10:30- Love and Logic Classes
Love and Logic helps:
  • By being a trusted leader in the market for over 35 years
  • Parents raise really responsible kids by giving specific strategies, tools/techniques and the actual words to say
  • People see that they can enjoy healthy, happy relationships
It is not too late  to join the Bible Class on Love and Logic.  
Due to the class size we will be meeting in the Family Life Center (lower level of the church,
the glassed in room).

Open house was a great success this Sunday also. We had 44 families visit our school which was an increase of 14. Spreading God's Word in our community - what a blessing.

Smiling your way,
Mrs. Murray

 Hello parents,
We had a busy week last week that ended with a 7th grade spelling champion. Congratulations Isaac Conrad on a exciting win! 8th grader Grace Wiesner came in second place. Check out Zion's facebook page for pictures. I moderated the bee and did not bring my camera with me!

Week 20 January 5 - 9

Hello parents,

Welcome back to school. The second half of 7th grade is underway and so far so good! It is a blessings to be back in the classroom with your children.

Please refer to Mrs. Clucks blog for all the new and upcoming information. We combined the basics so you didn't have to read it in two places.

I do have the clam dissection pictures for you though. Enjoy!

Also, be sure to view you child's report that is coming home today in a Zion envelope. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Blessings,
Mrs. Murray
