Our newest Rochester director
I am very happy to announce our newest director in the Rochester area, our very own Kristin Rogers. Kristin, who has been one of our ABC tutors this year, will be directing the Rochester I group at Gethsemane Lutheran. Heather Hickman will be stepping back to focus on her new little son Thaddeus, adopted just a few months ago from Ghana Africa, but will continue to be a valued part of our groups. Kristin and her husband Karl have six year old twin girls, Sophia & Jocelyn, and a 22 month old little girl named Brielle. Kristin has amazing leadership and administrative skills and is very eager to begin her role as director. I know she will have a wonderful community this fall, although we will miss her family here at Emmanuel. Congratulations Kristin on your new role in CC!

Week 24 - Famous Composers - Review of Mozart
If you would enjoy listening again to the classical music we have studied this year in CC, you may use the enclosed link to download and play all three of our Cycle 1 Famous Composer music selections. This is a free download for all families.
Year end program
Our last day of class should be Tuesday, assuming we have no more snow days. Which I guess is still entirely possibly at this point! We are planning to celebrate with ice cream bars or fruit bars, following lunch. And then our Week 24 will end with a Faces of History presentation from our Essentials students in the afternoon. Please see the announcement below for more details.
I will also have available a variety of miscellaneous supplies left over from our year that I would like to send home with families. I will put them out on a table on Tuesday, and families are welcome to take whatever they might be able to use at home. These are mostly things that we won't use again or that I would need to store for three years before our next go through with Cycle 1, and I would much rather you all were able to fully benefit from your supply fee expense this year, than have it sitting in my garage.
We will be displaying our art and science projects from the past year at our year-end program, and then every student will be able to take home their completed projects at the close of the program. If you know you won't be able to attend the year-end program, please let me know so I can pull out all of your child's art and science projects for the year and send home with you on Tuesday.
