Weekly Newsletter for November 16, 2017

Dear Parents and Friends,

As I shared with you in last week’s newsletter, Mr. Stoddard will be leaving us at the end of this month. We will be saying good-bye to Mr. Tom Stoddard who has served our school community as a friend and a true key player at our November 28 assembly at 8:00. The students will be presenting Mr. Stoddard with a memory book. Following the return of the students to their classrooms, we invite our parents and community friends to remain for a reception in Mr. Stoddard’s honor.

We are in the process of finding a part-time person to fill Mr. Stoddard’s position at the school. But, we will have increased needs and opportunities for volunteers, and your support will be appreciated. We need morning crossing guards from 7:40 – 8:05 each morning. What a wonderful way to start the morning greeting students and parents as well as keeping our campus safe. You can sign up through Parent Booker and easily fulfill volunteer hours.

As you prepare for Thanksgiving, the faculty, staff, and I wish to send a special expression of gratitude for sharing your wonderful children with us. We are grateful for the kindness and respect they share with each other which is a reflection of the love and care they receive from you. Take time during the Thanksgiving holiday to reflect upon the gifts God has bestowed upon you, especially the love of your family.

In gratitude, I would like to take this opportunity to share a litany of gratitude for the kindness and generosity shared by so many in our community.

In Gratitude for our Parent Club Board who organized many community building and fundraising events this fall, the Auction being the highlight.

In Gratitude for our School Advisory Board who have dedicated many hours to help ensure the successful running of the school.

In Gratitude for our faculty and staff who greet the children each day ready with carefully planned lessons and activities in an endeavor to meet the needs of each student in a balanced and supportive environment.

In Gratitude for you, the parents and grandparents, who volunteer in so many ways, inside and outside the classroom. Your presence enriches the learning experience and helps to create a most vibrant school environment.

In Gratitude for our students who strive to be Key Players by modeling the Keys to the Kingdom themselves and with one another.

As we count our blessings may we continue to pray for peace in our world as we look toward Advent, a time of waiting as we prepare our hearts for Christ’s love.                        

May God bless you and your families this Thanksgiving as you count your many blessings.
