I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe weekend. I gave my kids my trick or treating lecture about being safe, listening to their parents, and watching out for little ones while they hang out. I look forward to seeing them all sugared up and smiling Monday morning. Safe and sound!

Wednesday, November 4th. Muffins for Moms.
Wednesday, November 4th Early Dismissal
Red Ribbon Week: I was not very with it this week, and for some reason I took only one picture....Oddly enough this inspired me to pull out my phone and snap a pic. The kids went downstairs for art and they had to leave their stuffed animals in our room.
The little dog was left with something to do - and it wasn't playing an ipad. A book! I love our young at heart Zion kids who always have a book.
On Wednesday, December 2, at 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m, grades 5 and 6 will lead the first Advent worship services at Zion Church. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students as they help our congregation prepare for the Lord's coming. Attendance is expected at both services, so please mark your calendars now and keep the date open. Let me know of any conflicts right away as parts will be assigned next week.
Part of our Memory Work assignments will shift focus to learning songs and lines.
Students will also have an opportunity to share their special musical talents. Any student who has had two years of music lessons or is in the Concert Band may offer to play for the services.
Selections must be:
1) sacred music related to the Advent or Christmas seasons of the church year
2) practiced and ready to audition on Tuesday, Nov. 17
We studied about Moses praying during some Israelite battles. If Moses kept his hands up in prayer and worship the Israelites would win, and if his arms lowered they would begin to lose. I challenged the kids to see how long they could keep their arms raised. It varied from 3 - 5 minutes and they struggled. It was pretty funny actually!
They also figured out they could use each other or the walls to help them out. Moses had Aaron and another priest to help him out. We always need a little help from our friends. :)
Enjoy the photos.
