November 14-18

Dear Parents,

This week was our second faith family event.  The Chapel started out with a litany and a song, we then left the church with our faith family to have a family devotion and work on a service project.  The devotion focused on being thankful.  We are thankful for things we can see and touch like food, family, and clothing.  We also need to be grateful for things we can’t touch or see like our freedom.  We talked about those who serve our country in the military.  We then made Christmas cards that will be sent to servicemen around the world.  We returned to Chapel and celebrated baptismal birthdays and sang our theme song.  This is such a fun time to build relationships with other students centered around Christ.

Pictures from the Field Trip and our Religion lesson that we did about the story of Moses (we ate matza bread, bitter herbs, grape juice, and haroseth).  I apologize if there are some kids that are photographed more than others because I wasn’t able to be with each group as they went through the climatron at the Garden.
