The EJA Times
December 2, 2022
Important: Students with speaking parts should have their lines memorized by Monday. This will help to make next week's rehearsals go smoothly.
Costumes: We will be providing biblical costumes for the play. Our narrators/speakers need to wear a nice church dress/suit, preferably something in Christmas colors.
We have added a complete list of songs that we will be singing below so that the students can practice and be familiar with them at home:

5th-8th Art Class Canceled
Interim reports have been emailed to all parents. If you didn't receive yours, or need a paper copy, just let us know. These reports let you know how your child is doing so far. We still have a few more weeks until the end of the quarter, so there is still time to turn in missing assignments and get caught up before the quarter ends on January 11th.
Please note: our next parent-teacher conferences will take place on Tuesday, February 14th during 3rd quarter. Remember, you can always contact a teacher when you have questions or concerns.
