Ms. Austin's Kindergarten
Newsletter, March 18, 2016
I look forward to our conferences that are coming up soon. I have included the conference schedule in this newsletter as a reminder. The students attend the conference with you as they will be presenting their learning.
Lastly, I will be leaving next Wednesday afternoon for Bangkok. I have scheduled a surgery over Spring Break. I should be able to return to work on April 5th and will still be able to do conferences, too. I covet your prayers for safe travels, skilled surgeons, and an easy recovery and healing.

Verse of the Week
“If any man lacks wisdom, he should ask God, and He will give it to him.” James 1:5
Wise choices have positive consequences. Poor choices have negative consequences. How is this true when you are doing your homework?
