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.
  Next week we'll be working on the following:

** Christ light ** The Rich Young Ruler & Jesus Raises Lazarus
** Memory Treasure ** Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthian 10:31
** Math ** Comparing Numbers 10-20
** Super Kids ** Progress Testing and the letter R & N

** Monday, February 11th: Kids should wear their Wednesday Dress Code to school! Our Marketing Team will be here to shoot a promotional video for the school and are only available to come on Monday, and we'd like the students to be in their uniforms. We'll also have Chapel on Monday of that week instead of Wednesday. An email will also come from the School Office to remind you! 
** Monday- Friday, February 11th-15th: Hearts for Jesus Week 
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
jar, and other coins and dollars for other team's jars.
Thank you for helping to support this project!

** Monday- Friday, February 18-21: Spirit Week 
    Monday: Career Day
   Tuesday: Literary Character/ Superhero Day
   Wednesday: Retro/ Decades Day
   Thursday: Blue and White Day
   Friday: Cougar Pal Color Day

  Bible Encouragement for you this week: "Grace and peace to you from God our Father 
and the Lord Jesus Christ." 2 Corinthians 1:2

  Have a great day and enjoy the longer weekend. See you Sunday in Church :)
