Week of October 7

Hello, all! It was such a blessing to host so many wonderful grandfriends on Friday. The students’ excitement is contagious when they are sharing their school space with such special people. They did a beautiful job singing in the program! This week, we look forward to several members of the Grand Rapids Symphony joining us on Tuesday to play for the students.

  • Homework:  Like always, please let me know if you would prefer to have the homework printed for your child or if there is not a device available to them for their practice on IXL. The homework password this week is symphony. Students have a new Bible verse to memorize in the next couple of weeks. It can be found in their homework which can be accessed here. Thanks for encouraging your child to continue reading for our National Parks reading incentive. They have 2 more weeks!
  • Parent Teacher Conferences: Conferences are coming up on October 22, 29 and 31. This year, the office sent out an online form that is to be filled out, letting us know when you’re available. I look forward to meeting with you in a couple of weeks!
  • Foot Frolic Frenzy: Foot Frolic Frenzy 2019 is here! On Friday, October 11, students will participate in this annual lap-a-thon during the school day. Students have been hard at work collecting pledges for this fun event! Our class will be running from 11:30-12:00. Parents are encouraged to come and cheer the students on. This day will also be school SPIRIT day.  Students are encouraged to show their Eagle spirit and wear blue and black (all students will receive a t-shirt!) If you are able to help us during the event please sign up here.  There are many volunteer opportunities available.
