November has really blown in this week. This week we had a fire drill on Tuesday, we got to experience what the alarm at school sounds like so that we are ready next week when the firemen come to observe our fire drill. We didn't really like having to go outside quickly without our coats but we did a great job lining up and listening when we got outside! We are ready for the firemen!
We finished our Clifford Magazine for October where we learned fire safety. We also colored feather patterns. Mrs. Stewart (8th grade and science teacher) was kind enough to let us borrow a microscope so that we could see a bird feather up close. See our comments below:We also used oil pastels to color birds in the style of Benson Seto with many colors and lots of lines of different sizes and designs. Soon to be updated on Artsonia
Chapel Offerings This month we will be having a food drive so that our Student Council can put together boxes of Thanksgiving meals for students at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis. The men at the seminary are preparing to be pastors in the Lutheran church. Many of them are from out of town and are unable to spend Thanksgiving with their families. Our offerings this month will go to buy turkeys for the meals.
Muffins for Moms (repeat) Don't forget that next week is Muffins for Moms, sponsored by the PTL. You can get breakfast in the school gym with your child from 7 AM-7:55 AM. We will then start school like normal but we will go to chapel with the rest of the school at 8:10 AM. Moms are welcome to join us for chapel.
