Good morning parents and happy Thursday!
  The first quarter has absolutely flown by, it ends this coming Friday! Report cards will come home in your child's Red Folder Monday afternoon. Please sign the envelope and send it back in their folders. We'll use that envelope all year long. We can discuss their report cards at P/T conferences. Thank you to everyone who signed up for conferences. I'm unfortunately not available Tuesday after 5:30, so if that's your only day, we can either have a phone conference or reschedule for a different day. The final conference schedule will be emailed out from the front office either later this week or early next week!
  Tomorrow's Show and Tell is D. I will be out of the classroom next Friday, October 19th. My parents recently celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary, so we're giving them a surprise party in Michigan. They have no idea I'm flying up, or that there's a party, so I'm very excited! Laura Head will be subbing for me that day. I'll be back in the classroom by 9am on Monday morning. Laura will be here when they arrive and teach them Christ light to start the day. 
  Our Fall Musical is Friday, October 26th at 6:30pm. The Kindergartners are part of the chorus, and for their "costume", they'll wear a play t-shirt that I designed (along with khaki bottoms and tennis shoes). The cost of the t-shirt is $8.50. Please send the money (either cash or a check made out to Abiding Word) to school by next Friday, October 19th. Once the musical is over, they'll be able to wear the shirt on Friday's for Cougar Spirit Day! If you have any questions let me know. It's an adorable play with some catchy tunes- can't wait to see you there! 
  Our Fall Festival is on Saturday, October 20th. To help make this a success, we ask each class to bring items to be used for events and games. Our class has been asked to bring in 12 snack packs or pouches of cookies (oreos, nutter butters, chocolate chips).You're able to use the money spent towards PAWS hours-just keep your receipts!

** Christ light ** The Great Catch of Fish & Jesus Chooses Matthew

  Bible encouragement for the week: "... I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:12-14 God is always with us- through the good and the challenging times! Lean on him! 
 Have a great day :)
