Volume 64 - November 12, 2018
The Week Ahead
I hope conferences went well for everyone. Please share any feedback you have about the format, how to get parents more involved, or anything else that may help improve conferences. I'm not sure if the lower attendance is due to Powerschool and Classroom, but it seems that numbers go down each year.
There is a delegation from Taiwan visiting Regina tomorrow (Monday).
The Thanksgiving Dinner for Senior Citizens is Thursday. Lynne and Diane have sent out emails with those students who will be missing some of their classes to help with the dinner and activities.
The Fall Play kicks off on Friday night. More information is included below.

Get ready for the High School Fall Play Miss Holmes.
The World's Greatest Detective As You've Never Seen Her Before!
Starring in no particular order:
Kat Scholze, Maddie Maley, Kira Louvar, Lauren Garmager, Paige Lacina, Sophia Thomsen, Madeline Nugent, Mason Irving, Steven Icardi, Parker Pilkington-Smith, Cal Henk, and Gavin Gallardo.
Miss Holmes is a classic, timeless Sherlock Holmes mystery with one twist: Sherlock and Watson are women who have to negotiate the tricky political and social realities of 1880s England as they solve crimes. The game is afoot!
Miss Sherlock Holmes, possessor of one of the greatest deductive minds of her generation, finds herself regularly incarcerated for behaviors deemed abnormal in a “respectable” lady. Doctor Dorothy Watson struggles to make a difference at the only hospital in England that will hire female doctors. These unconventional women, trapped in an era that refuses to accept them, must forge a bond of trust and work together to uncover the secrets surrounding a corrupt police investigator whose wives have a habit of turning up dead. A thrilling murder mystery that re-introduces familiar characters from the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle under a brand new light.
November 16 and 17 at 7:00 pm, and November 18 at 2:00 pm in the Elementary Gym.
Tickets $5 for adults and $3 for students
No reserved seating, house opens 20 minutes before the play.
Morning Prayer This Week
Nov 12: Prayer for Deceased Veterans
O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest,
look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their lives in service of their country.
Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son
they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom
and rejoice in you with your saints forever.
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Nov 13-Nov 16: A Justice Blessing
May God bless you with discomfort with easy answers, half-truths, and superficial
relationships … so that you will live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger at injustice, oppression and exploitation of people…
so that you will work for justice, equity and peace.
May God bless you with tears to shed for those who suffer from pain, rejection,
starvation and war… so that you will reach out your hand to comfort them and change their pain to joy.
And may God bless you with the foolishness to think that you can make a difference in the world … so that you will do the things which others tell you cannot be done. Amen
