Good morning parents,
  Happy February! We've had a great week this week, staying busy with a LOT of reading. The kids are really getting the hang out blending letters to read words, so please work with them at home as much as you can! Tomorrow's Show and Tell can be anything. We're finishing up our testing this week and will be moving onto the letter R. 
  Tomorrow night is the Fine Arts Fair. The Kindergartners will be participating in the music portion of the evening- singing 2 songs and "making" another song with the 1-4th graders. Some of their artwork will also be displayed for you to enjoy. The event starts at 6:30, and they should wear their field trip tye-dye shirts. If you're unable to make it, please let me know. 
  Please continue to keep me in your prayers as I evaluate my work here at Abiding Word at my potential work at St Peter in Weyauwega, WI. I'll take the next couple weeks to determine where my gifts can best be used to serve God and His Kingdom. I welcome any conversations and would really appreciate your prayers!  
  Next week we'll be working on the following:

** Christ light ** God gives his people Jericho
** Memory Treasure ** Your word is a lamp to my feet and light for my path. Psalm 119:105
