Good afternoon parents,
  Today is our last day of school for the week. Tomorrow and Friday our school will be hosting the South Central District's, GROW Conference. I'm looking forward to two days of learning, growing, and fellowship with other WELS pastors and teachers. Enjoy your long weekend, but don't forget that the kids sing in worship on Sunday!! They should be here by 10:15 in the school gym, wearing their blue AW polos and khaki bottoms. 
  In your child's green folder, you'll find a sheet of paper with 10 sight words on them. Please take time over the next 4 days and practice them! They are expected to read them to me on Monday, February 11th. 
  The kids are asked to wear their AW blue polos and khaki bottoms on Wednesdays, but next week, we are asking for them to be worn on Monday, February 11th. We have our marketing team coming to campus to shoot a new promotional video, and we want the kids to look uniformed! 
  Next Thursday is Valentine's Day. We aren't having a formal party, but we will have a small celebration around lunch time. The kids are invited to bring in Valentine's Cards for their friends. I'll bring cookies or some kind of snack for us to enjoy.

Our annual "Hearts for Jesus" week begins On February 11th through the 15th.  As a school,
we are rallying together to collect money to support the WELS Christian Aid and Relief for
digging wells in Africa.This is a time that allows our Abiding Word family to thank God for all
of the blessings which he has given us, and then to use our resources to reach out and share the
good news of Jesus with others across the world.  This year we will, once again, be having
a penny war competition between our Cougar Pal teams to see which team is able to raise the
most money for this project. Students are encouraged to bring in pennies for their own team's

  On Sunday, January 27th, I received a call to serve as the Special Education teacher
at Divine Savior Academy in Doral, FL. A call is a term our church body uses for another job opportunity.
Abiding Word has been my home for the past 7 years, and I feel fortunate to serve here.
It is such a wonderful blessing to know that everyday the Gospel is taught and children hear
how much Jesus loves them. The harvest fields are ripe, and I look forward to determining
where I can best serve our Lord with the talents He has given me. I find comfort as I deliberate
in this passage from Romans 15:13, May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace
as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the
Holy Spirit.” I welcome any conversations and would appreciate your prayers over the
coming weeks.

If you have any questions regarding the call, please don't hesitate to ask! 

  Have a terrific day!

Good morning parents!
Brrr! It's cold outside! Hopefully you're all staying warm and enjoying the colder temperatures, I know I am! My parents said their current "feels like" temperature is -4 in Michigan! We've had a great week this week, talking about Martin Luther King Jr. and the blessings of faith in Jesus. This morning, our Christ light lesson was about the Great Dinner. We made invitations for someone we know to come to church. I listed the times for services at Abiding Word on Sunday mornings, so if you have someone in mind, please invite them! The kids were coming up with ideas of who to invite :) We equated the importance of inviting people to church to inviting people to their birthday parties- we want to share the Gospel and news of Salvation with them.
Tomorrow's Show and Tell is for the letter U. We'll also be having Cooking Class in the morning.
I had a grandmother of one of our kiddos ask if she could come and read to the students for Story Time sometime, and I told her "yes"! If any of you (or grandparents) would like to come in and read a story to the kids, please let me know! I know they'll love the special guests.
  Next week we'll be working on the following:

me will live, even though he dies. John 11:25

If you have time, please have a conversation with them at home about MLK Jr. 
  Tuesday, January 29th will be our 100th day of school! This is a big deal in Kindergarten, and your child is invited to dress like he/she is 100 years old!

If they don't have anything that starts with an H, it's no big deal, but please have them refrain from bringing other toys to class. When toys (other than Show and Tell days) come to school, they're too much of a distraction. Thanks for your cooperation with this.
  We do not have school on Monday, January 21st! 
  Please continue working through Sight Words with your child during the week and weekend. We work on sight words throughout the week, but the additional reinforcement and practice at home will help them so much!
