*As a class, the students have a very difficult time last week listening attentively during lessons and following directions the first time they were given. (Some of the students are telling me that they are tired, so this may be affecting their behavior as well.) They are very much about the “doing” part of lesson, and less interested in the “listening and learning” portion. The material that we are covering is more difficult. I am concerned that some of these behaviors are starting to get in the way of their learning. Any reminders that you can give at home are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
*Information regarding NLSW was sent home last week. Guest lunch forms are due WEDNESDAY. This helps us plan for the number of guests we will need to feed.
*Our spring field trip to the zoo has been scheduled for May 20th. More information will be sent out in the spring.
*Clarity (formerly called Pregnancy Care Center) is the chapel mission for the month of January. Clarity is in need of supplies for their clients. Each student is asked to bring in the items listed for their class for our chapel mission this month. Any monetary donations will be used to purchase supplies to donate to the center as well. Items will be delivered to Trinity High School or Immanuel Lutheran School during National Lutheran School’s Week. Please send in any donations by January 30 so that they can be boxed and ready to go on February 1. Thank you for your support of this mission!
