Lisa Howell, a 20-year missionary in East Asia, came to visit our school on Tuesday for Assembly. Miss Howell is now a part of Samaritan’s Purse, a ministry started by Franklin Graham to provide needed aid (physical and spiritual) to individuals who suffer from various types of tragedy. One of the arms of Samaritan’s Purse is Operation Christmas Child. You may recognize this as the “shoebox ministry” where families are invited to fill shoe boxes with all types of supplies that are not easily available to some children around the world. I hope you will encourage your student to read the information given in a plastic bag on Tuesday and fill a shoebox for a child who needs the most basic of supplies and who would be thrilled with a few treats (like a toothbrush and toothpaste and maybe a small ball). We will collect filled shoeboxes on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, November 12, 13, and 14. Those boxes will be taken to a local collection center to be shipped around the world. This is a wonderfully practical way to help our children learn that they, too, can be the hands and feet of Jesus.
Save the Date!
Mrs. Nichols and Mrs. Richburg will be hosting a Winter Day Camp December 10-14th at the school! If you are interested in sending your child, please mark your calendars and stay tuned for more information. This will be a fun time, filled with Winter-themed activities and education!
Box Tops for Education
We are beginning our Box Tops collection! Please look out for Box Tops on the products that you buy, cut them out, and attach them to the sheet that came home with your child today. There will be cereal boxes around the school for your child to drop their sheets into at the end of each month. Our first big collection date will be October 30th! This is an easy and great way to earn money for our school! Click on this link to see all the products with Box Tops.
Afterschool Art Class
Mrs. Goodenough will be starting another afterschool art class this upcoming Wednesday, Oct. 10th. This class will be doing the same paintings as the art class previously on Wednesdays. The class will go for 5 weeks and be $90.00. Please make checks out to Smart At Art and bring them in by Tuesday, the 9th!
