Weekly Newsletter

“Teach me, Lord, your way that I may walk in your truth, single-hearted and revering your name.” Psalm 86:11

Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy schedules this past week to meet with me during Parent Teacher Conferences. I always enjoy having the opportunity to sit down with each of you to talk about your child. I care so much for each child in our class and I love being able to share that with you. We are having a fantastic year. I have already seen so much growth and I am excited for this to continue! As always if you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

A look at next week:

Religion: Chapter 9

In Chapter 8, the students learned about God’s covenant and the Ten Commandments. They also learned about Jesus’ teaching of the Great Commandment. This week’s chapter will present the First Commandment, which teaches us that there is but one true God.
