Maybe it's just me, but it feels like this year is really flying
by. Summer seems so long ago at this point. We are
already starting our 3rd trimester. Grades will start fresh
this week. Let's have an awesome last few weeks before Spring
Here is a
note from National Junior Honor Society.
Dear Students and Families,
Because of your generosity through our hot
chocolate donations, we have raised nearly $300 for Denison's
tuition. We are truly thankful for your thoughtfulness.
Please know that each donation carries with it possibilities for
Denison, for his classmates, and for many in Haiti.
We are just shy of our goal to fully support him
for another year of school, and we'd still like to be able to
sponsor another child through Building Hope in Haiti. As we
discover more ways to be of service, we may reach out to you
Should you wish to find out more about Building
Hope, please go to the website below.
Again, we thank you for giving. As we have
said all year here at St. Paul: Together we are more than
conquerors through Christ.

Memory Quiz #23 - DUE March 12th
John 12:13 ~ They took palm branches and went out to meet him,
shouting, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the
Lord!" "Blessed is the king of Israel!"
Journal Entry #12 - DUE March 12th
In the Old Testament, God wanted believers to give one-tenth
(10%) of what they had as an offering (a tithe). Sometimes people
generously gave more! In the story of the widow's offering Jesus
said the widow's offering was better than the offering the rich
people gave. Why? How do you think Jesus wants us to give our
offerings? Do our offerings always have to be money? What else
could they be?
