Good morning parents,
  I hope this email finds you cool and out of the heat! We've been staying inside the last few days for our noon recess to avoid the heat. Thank you for your work on your child's memory treasure for Tuesday- the kids did great! Our Show and Tell tomorrow is for the letter C. 
  Remember, Friday's are the days that students are asked to wear their Abiding Word "Cougar Gear". Your child can wear their field trip shirt, royal blue polo, or the royal blue t-shirt I gave them last week. 
  If you haven't paid for your child's field trip shirt, please get that money to Mr. Freese or myself as soon as possible. The cost is $7.00. If you have any questions on whether or not you've already paid, just ask!

  Next week we'll be working on the following:

** Christ light ** The shepherds learn that Jesus is born & The Wise Men
** Memory Treasure **  Let the peace of Christ rule in our hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15
** Math ** Matching & Sorting Unit / Numbers to 5
** SuperKids ** Cass and the letter C
** Science ** The 5 senses
** Social Studies ** Building Character
** Phonics ** ABC's
** Writer's Workshop ** nothing yet, this class is incorporating into the schedule in October
** Art ** Handprints on our classroom tree
** PE ** Basic Movement with Mr. Lange
** Music ** Music Around Us with Mrs. Patterson
** Choir ** Wednesdays from 1:30-2pm 

  Important Upcoming Calendar Events:
** Monday, September 3, 2018- No School/ Labor Day
** Wednesday, September 12, 2018- Grandparent's Day

  Bible encouragement for you this week: 
  Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Romans 12:4-5
  These verses are my encouragement to you as we work together this school year. We've all been blessed with different talents and abilities. When we work together, so much more can be accomplished. I thank God that you've sent your child to our school and I get to be their teacher. But please remember, kids are kids and we're learning how to treat  one another with respect and love. It'll take time and it can be difficult, but I know we'll figure it out and have a great school year! 

  I will be bringing in a snack on Thursday, August 30th to celebrate my birthday with the kiddos. You can still send a morning snack because we'll have this snack in the afternoon!
  Have a tremendous Thursday!
