Be sure that desserts and cards are labeled with names. Children can put the desserts and cards in decorative boxes/bags or decorate bags for their prayer partners. In the afternoon, the students will do a prayer partner activity.
WEDNESDAY – SPIRIT RALLY DAY
A spirit rally is organized by the student council and held in Becker Center. The students are allowed to dress in the colors of the sports teams that are assigned to their classes. The students can wear the colors and any sports clothes they have for that team. I want to make it clear that you don’t need to buy any clothes items - just wearing the team colors is sufficient. Free dress guidelines must be followed, however sport hats can be worn. Please make sure your children are dressed appropriately.
The student council plans a great spirit rally, including a faculty vs. student council basketball game, scrip shots and a couple of other “spirited activities”. Parents are invited to the spirit rally.

The student council make a special presentation to the teachers at morning assembly. The PTO hosts an appreciation luncheon at noon for the faculty and staff. I encourage you and your children to use this day as an opportunity to show your appreciation to the teachers.

Grandparents and Special Friends are invited for a special afternoon. The program will start with refreshments in the Brinker Room. After refreshments, we have a special music/dance program for our grandparents and special friends.

At 2:50, a bell will ring and grandparents and special friends will leave the school. They can get a head start on getting out of the parking lot! The students must return to their classrooms to be dismissed at 3:00. Grandparents and special friends can take students early if they check them out through their classroom teachers. Please give grandparents and special friends these directions. Thank you.
