Religion- We have been studying the miracles of Jesus during religion. The first miracle Jesus performed was turning the water into wine at a wedding. It was only the beginning of many moments of provision, healing and wonder.
Language Arts - All of the SUPERKIDS friends have been introduced to kindergarten and now the group will form a club. We finished revisiting with the SUPERKIDS characters at the end of last week when we worked on the "US" workbook.
International Heritage Fair Volunteers Needed!
Volunteers Needed: January 29
Mosaic Month is a beautiful celebration of the cultural diversity that exists in our community and we rely on our parent volunteers to help make it happen. The culminating event is the International Heritage Fair on Friday, January 29th. If you are interested in either creating a cultural table for the fair or in helping out behind the scenes, please contact Ms. Myvonwynn Hopton at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Thank you!
CHILDREN'S HUNGER FUND FIeld Trip - Thursday, January 28th
A Hold Harmless agreement for children and adults is required to visit the Children's Hunger Fund. The link to access the Hold Harmless agreement form is listed below for your convenience. We will need all signed forms returned to your child's classroom by Monday, January 25th.
If you are a driver or passenger planning to attend this field trip, please report to Mrs. Agundez's classroom at 8:00 a.m the morning of the field trip for further instructions.

Mercy Challenge- Bishop David O'Connell invites all the people of the San Gabriel Pastoral Region to take up the Mercy Challenge. The challenge is to intentionally do one Corporal or Spiritual Work of Mercy every day during the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Here are some of the Corporal Works of Mercy:
- Feed the Hungry
- Give drink to the thirsty
- Clothe the naked
Here are some of the Spiritual Works of Mercy:
- Instruct the ignorant (to share knowledge)
- Counsel the doubtful (to give advice to those who need it)
- Admonish the sinner (to give correction to those who need it)
These are simple acts of Mercy each of us can strive for in our daily lives.
