MCA Weekly Wrap-Up!

Primary & KinderPrep Family News - Oct. 12, 2018

Dear Families,

We are thrilled that our school is participating in the FLUency school health program!

This program will keep our school healthier by:

• Giving families a FREE Kinsa Smart Thermometer, a $20 value

• Showing families "what's going around" our school (it’s all anonymous)

• Reducing sick days through early detection and increased awareness

The more families that participate, the more successful the program will be in keeping our students healthier throughout this school year.

Signing up for the program is EASY:

1. Visit from your smartphone

2. Download the Kinsa app onto your phone

3. Search for our school name and join!

You only have until October 29th to sign up for the free Bluetooth thermometer! Thermometers will ship directly to our school in early November and you will receive a notice when they arrive. Thank you for your help in keeping our students healthy and in class learning!

An Invitation from Parents in Prayer

We have so much to thank God for and so much we want to lay before Him in prayer. This week we poured over the auction and every detail to be done with integrity and purpose to glorify God. We prayed that every need would be met and all financial contributions will be our best offering to Him. We lifted up the teachers and the preparations needed for conferences next week as well. This week we prayed over the last pre-K Purple room. Next week we will be praying specifically for kindergartners! Please join us in praying for Maranatha!! Thursday mornings in room 209 at the North Campus from 8:10-8:30.
