Good morning parents!
  What a crazy and fun week we have had with Spirit Week, the 100th day of school, and Valentine's Day! The kids have shown great school spirit with their participation and dressing up! Thank you for the Valentine's Day presents and candy! My Mom has been in the classroom this week and it's been wonderful :)
  Don't forget- no school tomorrow due to the Dallas Basketball Tournament. Next week we'll be starting our "Hearts for Jesus Week". As a school, we are rallying together to collect money to support our mission project in Malawi, Africa. This is a time that allows our Abiding Word family to thank God for all of the blessings He has given us, and then to use our resources to reach out and share the good news of Jesus with souls all over the world. This year we will 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 jar, and other coins and dollars for other team's jars. Thank you for helping to support this project!
A worksheet will be coming home in your child's green folder to complete over the weekend. They should draw a picture of their family (can include animals). We've spent a lot of time talking about what a great blessing our families are to us! Also, please fill out the permission form for your child to participate in Jump Rope for Heart (it's on the inside cover at the bottom. I highlighted the parts to fill out and return!)

Next week we'll be working on the following:

** Christ light ** Achan disobeys God's Command & God Choose Gideon to Lead

  Bible passage for the week: " A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another. John 13:34-35.

  Have a great Thursday and enjoy your weekend!
