Good morning parents!
Brrr! It's cold outside! Hopefully you're all staying warm and enjoying the colder temperatures, I know I am! My parents said their current "feels like" temperature is -4 in Michigan! We've had a great week this week, talking about Martin Luther King Jr. and the blessings of faith in Jesus. This morning, our Christ light lesson was about the Great Dinner. We made invitations for someone we know to come to church. I listed the times for services at Abiding Word on Sunday mornings, so if you have someone in mind, please invite them! The kids were coming up with ideas of who to invite :) We equated the importance of inviting people to church to inviting people to their birthday parties- we want to share the Gospel and news of Salvation with them.
Tomorrow's Show and Tell is for the letter U. We'll also be having Cooking Class in the morning.
I had a grandmother of one of our kiddos ask if she could come and read to the students for Story Time sometime, and I told her "yes"! If any of you (or grandparents) would like to come in and read a story to the kids, please let me know! I know they'll love the special guests.
  Next week we'll be working on the following:
** Christ light ** The Pharisee and the Tax Collector & A Father Forgive his Son
** Memory Treasure ** I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in 
me will live, even though he dies. John 11:25
** Math ** Comparing Numbers to 10 (Unit 9)
** Super Kids ** The Letter B
** Science ** with Mrs. Carlovsky
** Phonics ** Variant Vowels r
** Writer's Workshop ** Swimmy
** Sight Word * Packet #3 (be, from, have, by, had, this, I, or, no, not)
     Please continue working with your child in their Sight Word Folder!
** Social Studies ** Holidays Unit
** Art ** B Art Project
** PE ** with Mrs. Hildebrant  
** Music ** with Mrs. Patterson

  Bible Encouragement for you this week: “The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
 his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; 
great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

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!

Have a great day!
