Gotta Move! Day 1

Keepin' In Step with the Spirit

Day 1 Bible Study

Today we had a lot of fun! Maybe you have heard about Moses and his parting of the Red Sea to have God's people, the Israelites escape Egypt. Did you know that something very similar happened a second time? When Joshua was moving the Ark to the promised land, they crossed the Jordan River in much the same way!

Day 1 Snack

We enjoyed some fun snacks that showed the parting of the sea. I think they liked the snack! They also learned an awesome song to say "thank you" to God. How many languages can you say "thank you" in? During snack we are learning 14 different languages to say thank you to God before our snack. Kids are invited to sing at 8:30 and 10:30 Mass to sing in front of the congregation. Hope many can attend.

Day 1 Games

Groups attempted to learn to double dutch jump rope! We "gotta move" to keep in step with the Spirit!

Day 1 Craft

We decorated some shoelaces and made some fun pins. They are sure to make a lot of noise during our jump and dance time!

Sign Kids In and Out Each day

Also...if your child will be brought home by someone other than the parent/guardian or those on the emergency contact form, please just let me know. I appreciate it!

Mission Donations

Traditionally, we have tried to do some good while we learn about the Lord together. This year, we will be able to help with two projects! We will be helping pack lunches for the St. Vincent de Paul Lunch program on Tuesday and the Milwaukee Rescue Mission, too!

During our snack time, we will be learning more about St. Joe's Mission trip team and what they will be doing this summer at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. Each day during the week we are hoping to collect donations that will be brought by the Mission Trip Team to the Milwaukee Rescue Mission. We'd love for your family to be able to donate items each day if possible. The following are school supplies these families without homes are in greatest need of:

  • Monday--1" and 1.5" binders and folders
  • Tuesday--black dry erase markers
  • Wednesday-notebooks (single subject)
  • Thursday--new carnival toys (for a planned St. Joe's run carnival for the kids at the Rescue Mission)


The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has decided, like many school districts in the area, that masks are encouraged, but optional. If you send your child in a mask, we will do our best to help them wear it properly. We will maintain social distancing as best as we can and wash hands before snack, just as always. Please don't send your child if they are sick.

Music CD

Each family will receive a "Gotta Move" CD. I hope you will play these catchy songs a lot the week of VBS (and after, too). Kids will be learning fun dance moves for these songs!

Song List Includes:

  1. Gotta Move!
