Dear Parents and 8th Graders,
On Monday, the third trimester will start. It's the last
trimester your 8th grader will experience at St.
Paul. Now is not the time to just let them coast through
until the end of the year. They will most likely need even
more guidance as they get excited for finishing up at St. Paul,
graduation, and the start of high school. You will need to
keep them grounded and focused on the everyday tasks they need to
accomplish. We are in this together! We will see
them through until June. We got this! Right??
Keep your chin up and keep lifting up your child in prayer.
Pray for their success, for them to make wise decisions, and for
them to stay close to their Lord through all
Homework envelopes might be coming home on Monday. Please
sign and return.
As we made the Washington DC decision, the hardest thing I had
to do was let you all know about it. After I sent off the
email, and headed home so many thoughts were going through my mind.
I was relieved to have had finally made a decision, but at the same
time I know how awesome this trip is and so do those of you who
have attended the trip. I feel so bad for both of my classes
that were unable to go on this trip. I realize the kids maybe
don't understand what they are really missing, but honestly, it is
a lot to be missing out on. Please know, we truly did try to
make this happen. Thank you for the kind words, emails, and
prayers throughout all of this. Your support is appreciated
and means so much to me.
