Director's Details-2nd Semester

Classical Conversations of Burien

To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of His calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power... 2 Thessalonians 1:11

Christmas has been celebrated and we are staring 2016 in the face! I am praying that you are each enjoying a time of refreshment, resting and sweet fellowship with family and friends. We'll be meeting together again in just a little over a week. Enjoy these last few days of break. I know our spring semester is going to fly by and before we know it, we'll be finishing out the school year. However, we still have a lot of learning and fun left in Cycle 1. Please read this carefully. There are a few important announcements and opportunities coming up.

Enjoy your break - See you back at CC on January 7!

Essentials Open House for Upcoming families

For families who will be moving into the Essentials years next year, we will be hosting an Essentials open house on January 21. Please plan to stay that afternoon. Parents you are invited to sit in our class and see what it's all about. I will be asking for extra moms to stick around that afternoon and help with the extra kiddos in childcare.

Geography Map Tracing Challenge!

Use your time wisely - Practice your map drawing over break!

What? Practice your geography skills by tracing, blob mapping or free hand drawing the world or specific memory work. Bring your work to CC. Mrs. Chang will donate 5 cents for every map turned in. We will donate the final sum to a local charity AND we'll have a party to celebrate our fantastic work!

When? October 29 - February 11

Why? To sharpen our map skills AND to raise money for local international families

**There will be a jar and a folder for tallying maps drawn. Please tally for every 5 cents earned per map and put one corn kernel per 5 cents in the jar. You may submit your maps or keep them. We will also have a map of Africa where we will color in a country for each dollar earned. Please track your own child's progress. If your child is receiving donations from someone besides me, track that with tally marks and corn kernels but keep the funds until I announce that we will be submitting the donation.
