It's for the Birds

This week we made special treats for the birds. We used the following recipe

1 package Knox unflavored gelatin

1/4 cup water

1 cup Bird seed

First we had to carefully pour the gelatin into our bowl. Then Mrs. Helmkamp added the hot water. We stirred carefully so the water didn't spill and the gelatin dissolved.

Then we added 1 cup of birdseed and mixed it up so that it all looked wet.

After picking out the shapes that we wanted to make. We filled 2 molds with our birdseed mix, one for at home and one for at school.

Once dried they can be hung up for the birds to enjoy!

Next week we will walk around campus to distribute the ones we made for school. Please make sure that you do not store them with the bag closed, it may not be completely dry yet. We don't want them to mold.

Fall Fun

Don't forget the Fall Fun Festival is this Saturday in the Sonshine Center from 9:00 -10:30 AM. Wear your costume and have fun playing some games in the classrooms as well as a fun parade to collect candy.


As we start wearing jackets and get ready for hats and gloves season to approach, please help us out at school by labeling your child's things with their initials. That way when a glove falls on the floor or coat falls on the floor we know who it belongs to.

Parent Teacher Conferences

You will receive a letter in your child's folder about your scheduled conference time. If this time does not work for you please let me know as soon as possible so that we can work out another time. I will post my schedule outside first door in the hall so that you can make adjustments if needed. You can also send me an email.

Remember there is no school on Thursday or Friday next week to allow teachers time to complete conferences. We will take time during the conference to discuss the Dial-3 screenings, your child's day, and questions or concerns. Please keep all the teachers and parents in your prayers as we approach conferences.

Jesus Time

This week in Jesus time we learned the story of Naaman. Naaman was a soldier who had leprosy, he did not believe in God. A little girl who worked in his house told him about God and told him to go to Elisha. Elisha told Naaman about God and that he should wash in the river 7 times. Namaan did what Elisha said and he was healed. God healed him and made him better.

God does amazing things for us. We learned a new song that we are singing in chapel this month called, "My God is so Great." There is nothing that God can't do!
