Good morning parents!
   Happy Thursday to all of you :) We've definitely been enjoying the cooler temperatures this week! Our recesses have been a little longer than usual, but tomorrow when it's back in the 90s, I don't think the kids will mind. Thank you for signing up for a conference time for next week's P/T conference! A final schedule will come from Mr. Freese's office, but incase you don't get that, it's at the bottom of this email.  If you have a change and you're unable to make it to our scheduled time, please let me know and we'll figure something out. Conferences are 15-20 minutes long: we'll talk about Report Cards, behavior, set goals for your student, and just get to know each other better. If you have any specific questions, please ask! If we need additional time to talk, I'm available all day Wednesday the 18th (or really any day!)
   I NEED YOUR HELP: Can you please send an apple to your school with your kiddo tomorrow? We'll be using it for our art project in the afternoon :) Also, if you haven't turned in money for our Dewberry Farm field trip, please get that money to me by Monday, October 23rd! 
   Next Saturday, October 21st is our annual Fall Festival here at Abiding Word. The Kindergarten class is asked to donate (12 count) snack packs or pouches can be any type of cookies, oreos, nilla wafers, chips ahoy, etc.. / for the cookie walk game. You can send them to school with your kiddo and I'll get them where they belong. During the Fall Festival, our Scholastic Book Fair will be open, so feel free to browse and purchase books for your kids.
   The K-8 kids are singing for our 10:30 worship service on Sunday, October 22nd. Please have your child in the gym by 10:15 to sing. They should wear their white AW polo and khaki bottoms. If they aren't able to make it, just let me know please.
