Our first Drive Day is coming up on Friday, September 23rd. There is no bussing on this day as the public schools have a professional development day. Children will need rides to and from school. We have several of these throughout the school year so please plan accordingly.
If before or after school care is needed (Latchkey) please let us know as soon as possible so we can schedule enough caregivers.
Monday, September 26th all students will be going to the Kruse farm to pick pumpkins and the Kurth farm for a tour. THANK YOU!
We leave just after 9:00 and will return to school by 11:30.
Please dress appropriately for farm/field and weather (Sweatshirts and/or jackets, extra shoes…)
Preschool Parents: please be patient if we are late for morning pickup.
Our first scheduled singing in church is October 2nd at Immanuel Lutheran Church. Please be there by 9:45, the service begins at 10:00.
This is not mandatory but all children are encouraged to attend so we have enough voices. If you need to leave after singing that is fine as well.
LATE START / DRIVE MORNING
Wednesday, October 5th is our first Late Start and Parent Drive morning of the school year. School starts at 10:00 these days and therefore no bussing is available in the morning only.
If before school care is needed (Latchkey) please let us know so we can schedule caregivers.

Our Jesus story is Noah's Ark. We learned that Noah trusted in God and God kept Noah and two of each kind of animal safe on the Ark from the flood that destroyed the earth. He also sent a rainbow as a promise that he will never flood the earth again.
In Art we are making our own rainbow, check it out in our coat room the next few weeks.
In Science we learned about the 3 states of matter using water, solid, liquid, and gas.
In Movement we have raised the bar and are working on jumping higher and stronger.
Preschool: Our letter this week is Cc for Cassie, Calix, Combine, Cat, and cookies. Our number is 3, "Around the tree, around the tree, that's the way we make a 3”.
Kindergarten: Met Oswald for Oo, he likes odd animals. In Math we are exploring 1-5 and took another test. 😉
Mrs. Utsch’s Room
In 1st grade Math we represented subtraction using equations, pictures, objects, and used the strategy count back. In Reading we identified initial and final sh, encoded sh words, and used personal and possessive pronouns in sentences.
In 2nd Math we modeled numbers to show equal groups, used arrays, and wrote addition equations to find the total number of objects. In Reading class, we read th and wh words and reviewed spelling patterns for those words. We used the correct end punctuation to determine a statement, shouting, or question sentence.
In 3rd grade Math we found the area of shapes by multiplying and divided shapes into smaller shapes to find the area. In Reading we are reading the novel “How to Be Cool in the Third Grade” by Betsy Duffey.
In Religion we heard how Jesus gladly obeyed all of God’s commandments perfectly for us. We show our thanks to our Savior by gladly doing what God commanded. In our other Bible lesson, we learned how John showed people their sins and their Savior. God provides his Word to show us our sins and our Savior. We study God’s Word regularly to learn more about our Savior.
