3-4-2020 Memo

March Song: Psalter # 40:1,2,4 & 6.  Reminder, any and all are invited to join us for singing on Monday mornings in the commons. Come join in starting the day with uplifted hearts.

Pictures: Spring Portraits will be taken on Friday, March 6. As using Lifetouch is a new endeavor for us, we are learning a bit as we go. Lifetouch plans to take class photos on Friday with the kids altogether. Realistically this is all we as a school need. However, they are also planning to individually photograph each kid in a more “relaxed and fun” (if being photographed is something you like) so they can put together a package to try to sell to parents. There is no expectation from the school for the students to dress up for these photos or buy anything. Basically, we are jumping through their hoops. Next year we will try to ask them just to do everything in one day. We’ll see. Thanks for your patience.

Donuts: Will be served on Monday, March 9.

Pizza: Will be served on Wednesday, March 11.

School Board: Will meet on Tuesday, March 10, at 7:30 pm.
