Luther’s Morning Prayer
I thank You my heavenly Father, through Jesus Christ, Your dear Son, that You have kept me this night from all harm and danger; and  I pray that You would keep me this day also from sin and every evil, that all my doings and life may please you.  For into Your hands I commend myself, my body and soul, and all things.  Let your Holy angel be with me, that the evil foe may have no power over me.  Amen.

The yellow folder and the book report or due this Friday.

Spring Concert is this Tuesday, May 16, at 6:30.  Students will meet in Mrs. Ballard’s room at 6:00.

Please return the report cards to school this week.

Please pray for our class, staff, and school.  God blesses us with a wonderful school where we share God’s love!

Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child!  It has been a joy to watch these children grow in God’s grace and love.

*Notes for next week
On Monday, students will bring home their writing portfolio.  This is a collection of projects and paragraphs.  Also, I will be sending home a packet of summer work for you to use if you would like your child to practice skills during the summer.  The Fort Smith Public Library has a wonderful summer program where students can earn prizes for reading books.

On Tuesday, please send a bag and an empty backpack to school.  Students will bring home supplies.

On Wednesday, please send old clothes to school for Survivor.  Students will wear their school uniforms to school and change before Survivor.  A hot dog lunch will be after Survivor and we will dismiss at 11:30.
