There will be complete information coming out in another week or two, but I just wanted everyone to be able to update their calendars since we will be going to Hovander Park in Ferndale on Thursday, May 12th for a Civil War education day. It's a great day, and many of your kids may have already gone with Ms. Montes in 4th grade so they might have an idea of what they are in for. We will need parent chaperons, and you'll have an opportunity to let me know you're interested when the permission slips come out at the beginning of May.
The Praise Band will be playing with Jon Bauer tonight at 7:00 at Northlake Church. They also performed with him this morning for the school and they were simply amazing. If you're on the fence, I highly recommend checking them out. You won't be disappointed.
We just started reading The Hiding Place this week in class. It's written for an adult audience and it's written very well. I highly recommend it if you haven't already experienced it. You won't be disappointed. It encourages and challenges me every year to think about what it means to live a Christian life.
Also, since it deals with some difficult subject matter like the Holocaust, you may want to be reading along with your child so that you can help them to understand what they are reading.
