Dear 8th Grade Parents and students,
We made it through our first full week. We even managed to
get in the MAP tests this week. Some of the 8th
graders really stepped it up in the chapel service this past
Wednesday. I was really proud of the job they did under the
leadership of Mr. Fischer. We are still working on being
better listeners and being more aware of our surroundings.
There is a tad of growing up that needs to occur. Keep
praying for your 8th grader and the rest of the class as
they navigate through the rest of the year.
Progress reports are coming home on Monday. Please sign
your child's progress report and have them return it to me by
We are almost all signed up
for the trip. If your child is not going on the trip.
Please contact me. Thank you.
The St. Paul Auction is
October 16. We are
doing a class basket again and our theme is "Thanksgiving". I
am looking for all things about fall or thanksgiving to fill our
basket. Brenda K. has offered to do the shopping for the
basket if you would prefer to donate cash instead of items.
Just have your student give the cash to me in an enveloped marked
auction, and I will send it on to Brenda. If you're looking
for items to buy here are a few thoughts: anything that has
to do with autumn decorating, fall items for the table such as
placemats, napkins, serving platters and fun fall dishes, candles,
fall wines and Octoberfest beers, gift cards to grocery stores, and
the list goes on and on. Please have your items/cash to
school by October 12. It's always nice to have a larger item or
two. Maybe some of the money brought in can be used for a
certificate to Cedar Creek Farm or a similar place.
