From the Desk of Mrs. Schumann Nov. 29- Dec. 3
Dear 8th Grade Parents and Students,
The first trimester is completed! Congratulations! As we move on to the second trimester let’s keep encouraging our eighth graders to use the gifts God has given to all of them and to do their very best in every subject.
Secret Angels: A Christmas tradition in the middle school is our Secret Angel gift exchange. Students draw the name of one of their classmates and surprise this person with treasures and treats between December 1 and our last full day, December 21. Please spend only $10 total. Some students provide smaller gifts more frequently (often one per week) while other students leave hints and give one a little bit larger gift. Either way, know that this is a lot of fun. The eighth graders have already picked names and hopefully they have shared this with you!
Marcus Movie orders along with the money you collected are due back to school Friday, December 3.
The 5-8 grade Advent service is December 15. Please keep this date open. All of the eighth graders will have a speaking part for this service. Practice for this service will start the week we come back from Thanksgiving Break.
When we return after Thanksgiving break, please be looking for information about one more opportunity to help others in need: In response to the novel The Family Under the Bridge, the Lutheran Junior Honor Society is collecting clothing, winter coats, hats, and gloves as well as toiletry items for Bob’s Under the Bridge, an organization that directly ministers to the homeless.
