Basketball Etiquette Reminder – Parents of younger children, if your child is not in the gym watching the game, we ask that they be supervised by a parent. The hallway is too crowded to have students running the hallway. Come cheer on the teams.

Students  waiting for parents & staying for 3:30 worship are reminded to keep coats & backpacks by classroom hooks.

If you are attending the 3:30 Advent service this week, please pick your child(ren) up at the following designated classrooms:   Grades K-2 in the 1st grade classroom   Grades 3-4 in the 3rd grade classroom  Grades 5-8 in the 8th grade classroom.

If a parent is not available and the child would like to attend church, a staff member will sit with the child toward the front of church.


Dismissal is at noon on Friday, December 22.  There is no lunch and no pick up bus at noon.  Those using childcare are reminded that childcare closes at 3 PM that day.  Please make the proper arrangements.

Room Parents – Room parents that need money for various parties or teacher gifts, see Mr. Gartner and he will give you the needed money.

Band concert is Thursday December 21st  at 6:30 in the gym.  Please arrive by 6:15. Wear band shirts and black bottoms. Members of pre concert ensemble should arrive by 6. Leave instrument cases in the back of the gym. Do not leave any cases in the church.  Band Students have been assigned their band shirts.  Wash as needed.

Winter is almost upon us!  Here are a few weather-related policies to keep in mind…

If school is closed (3K-8th grade), childcare will also be closed.
If there is a late start (usually 10AM), 3K, and morning 4K, and before school care are cancelled. School children can arrive and childcare will open1/2 hour before school begins.
If there is an early dismissal (usually 12:30PM) childcare will close ASAP (as soon as arrangements are made and safe departures can be provided.)
