Monday Note – May 13th, 2019
I hope you all had a blessed Mother’s Day! I hope you enjoyed those wonderful letters! They all came up with different things to tell their mom! Writing letters is a wonderful skill and so that’s what we’re emphasizing right now in Writer’s Workshop. It’s a great way to say thank you!
Our last week and a half of Kindergarten are here! This week we have a lot of things I would like returned. I will still read with the children but please send back any homework bag books you have. We have a couple library books that need to be returned. I put a note in your child’s folder of the books they still need to return. Send backpacks every day to put all their things in. I’ll try to send some things home toward the end of the week so there’s less to remember next week.
We’re still working on making a calendar that will have something fun to do each day of the summer. Hopefully this will remind you to have them sit down for 15 to 30 minutes a day and use their school skills. Find everyday tasks that require reading and writing – making a list, a postcard to grandma, adding up the change in your pocket, etc. They’re bringing home their spiral notebook journal. We didn’t use many of the pages so have them continue to write in it most days. Make it a routine! That way they won’t lose any of their skills.
Our Bible lessons this week are about Philip and the Ethiopian. We’ll learn how Philip was faithful in the Lord and how God used him to help many learn about Jesus and His love for them. We’ll end the year with one last Bible verse, from Romans 10:17 “Faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the Word of Christ.”
Next Wednesday morning we will begin with chapel at 8:30AM, followed by our Preschool graduation. Please join us! They’ll be bringing their Bibles home next week. If your child plans on returning to Zion they can use them in first grade. They have fun finding and reading their highlighted verses since they have hidden so many of God’s Words in their hearts!
Vacation Bible School begins Monday, June 3rd and runs that entire week. There are sign-up sheets up front on the information board or you can go to zion’s webpage to register. Plan on bringing friends, too! It begins at 9AM and goes to noon. Report cards will go home the last day of school, unless you owe money for anything. We will hold the report card until all dues are paid for: lunches, library books, and tuition. Left over milks and lunches will be carried over to next fall unless you would like to be reimbursed now. Just let Nora or myself know!
God’s Blessings on your week!
