Academics:

In Bible we are reading Judges 6-8 and studying what happened after Joshua’s death.  In Social Studies we started our government simulation.  Groups created their own state names, mottos, and flags.  This week they will create their own anthems, state seal, and state symbols.  In Science, we are starting our earth and space unit.  We are focusing on water and land of the United States.  We will also move into rocks and minerals that the land is made up of.  We have a spelling test this Friday. 

 

Valentine’s Day Party:

Please have your child bring in their valentines THIS Thursday.  If you told me you were bringing something to share with the class, please have your child bring it to school with them that morning.  Thank you so much.

“The righteous thrive like a palm tree and grow like a cedar tree in Lebanon.  Planted in the house of the Lord, they thrive in the courts of our God.  They will still bear fruit in old age, healthy and green, to declare, ‘The Lord is just; He is my rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him.’” 

Psalm 92:12-15
