Thank you for sending in all the lovely photos of your Baptized babies! The students had a great time today sharing them. We were also surprised to see many other Baptism sacramentals like white garments, candles, and special memories. If you sent in any of these items for your child to share, they will be brought back home next Friday. The pictures are being used in a project, but will still be able to come back to you in original condition.
Our 9/11 chains of good deeds have continued to grow! I wanted to arrange them to take a nice picture with our class and this service project, but the rain impeded my plans! We'll try on Monday. Stay tuned for updates!
A letter about upcoming conferences went home on Wednesday. Please return these by next Friday so I can compile a schedule. After that is completed, I'll send a confirmation slip in your child's HW book.
Throughout the month of October, we are collecting boxes in preparation for a November Thanksgiving food collection. Paper ream size boxes are ideal, but we can make due with similar sizes. These can be sent in to our classroom all through October. If it gets to the point we have enough, I'll send an email message.
We will be doing a project with pumpkins at the end of the month. Each student will need a pumpkin approximately the size of a soccer ball. I'm giving notice now because I know this is the season of festivals full of pumpkins and many people will be buying them for decorations this time of year anyway. Please send in this pumpkin with your child October 24 or 25. We will complete the project October 26 and 27 and they will come home Friday, October 28th. PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM INTO SCHOOL EARLIER THAN 10/24. Pumpkins do not like heated, warm buildings and WILL get mushy and smelly.
