Monday Note – November 19th, 2018
Hang on to your hats! This week is going to go by quickly with only two and a half days! It is also Grandparent’s Day this Wednesday, Nov. 21st. Grandparents or special friends are invited to come at 8:15AM to go with us to chapel, and then stay for a short preschool, Kindergarten presentation. Then we’ll head back to our room and grandparents can come, too. It may be a bit crowded, but we’ll do some school activities together. School will be dismissed at 11:15AM. There will be no lunch or daycare. There is also no school this Thursday and Friday for Thanksgiving.
This week there will be a Book Fair in the hallway from Sunday to Wednesday. Parents are invited to come eat with their child on Monday or Tuesday. Our lunch is from 11:15-11:40, join us if you can! Please bring your own lunch if you didn’t sign up in advance for our school lunch program.
We will finish our lesson about God’s people crossing the Jordan into the Promised Land. We learn that God chose Joshua to take over Moses’ leadership role. They thanked God for His blessings, just like we take time to do at Thanksgiving. Our Bible verse is from Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”
We’re working with “Kk” this week. At home have fun encouraging the use of all letters. Have your child write little notes to you, label things with post its, or try some fun ways to use magnetic letters. Remember to have your child think up a simple sentence, then have them write it down using what they know – beginning with a capital, stretching out new words and writing quickly those “fast words” they can read so well, and ending with some kind of punctuation. Or you can still write the sentence, but talk about those things, then cut the sentence up and have them put it back together.
Zion has special services this week for Thanksgiving – Wednesday evening at 6PM, and Thursday morning at 10AM. During the month of December we have Wednesday Advent services to help us prepare for Jesus’ birth. We have a 10AM service and an evening service at 6PM this year. To make it very family friendly there will be a light dinner at 5:00PM.
Remember to mark Sunday afternoon, Dec. 2nd, on your calendar, as that is our Preschool & Kindergarten Christmas service, at 4PM! We’re working hard on our parts now, and adding the details.
Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”
This is our Spanish Song we sing every morning.
