    Feb. 23, 2018

    Please give your children hand washing lessons, this suggestion comes from the health department. I started out with only 7 children today and by the end of the day we had 6.  I hope everyone recovers by Monday and none of my 6 (or myself) are infected.  Needless to say it was an interesting day.

    Today:

    1. Towson students came to do science with the kindergarten.  7 children were not what they were expecting but it was great.  They will be back in April.  Hopefully we will have a better attendance.
    2. Also met Abraham Lincoln and toured his birthplace and log cabin.  Had pictures taken with him.

    Reminder:

    1. Subway lunch Tuesday
    2. Spaghetti dinner Sunday

    Please remind your child to pray for their Prayer Devotional Friend (PDF) whom they chose last week in school.  You will see the child’s name attached to the inside of the folder.  Your child will not reveal their identity to the partner until the week before Easter.  We will be making things in school for them weekly but we do ask that they remember them in prayer either at meal times or before bed.  Thank you for your help in this.
