King Antonio Specifics

King Antonio is coming to the St. George cafeteria on Monday from 8:15-8:40. There will be no chapel. Please be in the cafeteria by 8:10. Kinder and JK will be on the floor. Because middle school will be attending, please make sure you don't have any wasted spaces on the benches. Once again, Mr. and Mrs. Earle will have the students practice the end of year songs before the King arrives.

Reminders and Things To Be Thinking About:

  • When filling out recommendation forms for student visitors, please put numbers in the columns and not x's. The numbers you should use are listed at the top of each column. This will give us much more detailed information.
  • When taking attendance, please just mark P for present, T for tardy, or A for absent. Sam will take care of marking excused and unexcused.
  • Please make sure that you are always keeping your doors locked.

Haitian Art Festival on the Green

Friday we will have our first Haitian Art Festival. Prepay to purchase spaghetti dinners which can be picked up in the cafeteria from 5:30-6:30 PM. There will be a concert from 5:30-7:00 and Haitian art for sale in a market in the green space from 4:30-7:00. Come out and enjoy your Friday evening.

Haiti Units and the Chain of Love

Over the next two weeks you are all going to be teaching your Haiti units. Your lessons look wonderful and I want to thank you all for putting in so much time and effort to make this happen for our children. By giving our students more knowledge about Haiti, the country, the struggles, the families, the schools, the songs, the art, the dances, and most importantly, the children, we are helping them gain a better understanding of what our Chain of Love program is all about. You are all enabling our children to develop empathy for their counterparts in Haiti. Have fun with your lessons!

On Monday, April 25th, we will be assembling in the gym to watch the dominoes go tumbling down, and I know it will mean so much more to each of our students because of the knowledge you are sharing with them.
