New book from the RFPA – Gottschalk: Servant of God, A Story of Courage, Faith, and Love for the Truth, written by Connie Meyer. This biography is about a French monk who lived in the ninth century and suffered for his belief and advocacy of double predestination. The book has been written to be enjoyed by junior high and high school readers. Because the story is intriguing, adults will also enjoy this history and find the reading profitable. $17.95. The book can be ordered at or by calling 616-457-5970.

Smart Shop:  Gift certificates are now available at SmartShop!  You can purchase them at SmartShop during open days, or contact Marcia Van Baren if you would like to purchase one at a different time.  They can be purchased in any amount and would make a great Christmas gift!  

Ice Skates & Hockey Sticks: The boards are up and the plastic tarp has arrived; now all we need is a sustained deep freeze and the students will be able to ice skate.  We would like to be prepared at school when the ice is ready.  We ask that before you send skates to school, check that they fit the child and clarify with all your children, which child will be wearing each different set of skates.  If there are name tags on the bottom of the skates from last year and that child will not be wearing them, please remove the name and we will put new ones on.  Otherwise the children (and the teachers) get very confused about who should be wearing what pairs. Also, each Upper and Middle Room child (and any of the younger children who will be staying after school to play hockey) need their own hockey stick for P.E. and recess.  The sticks have a tendency to break and it becomes a big issue when a student breaks someone else’s stick because they don’t have their own.

Happy Birthday to Colin VanBaren on today and Drew Regnerus on Monday, December 7!
