Crusader Chorale ***UPDATED***
Starts for 5th graders this week during lunch! Girls will meet Tuesday, and boys on Wednesday. Come check it out! We are excited to start off the merry season to God's glory! Final day to join for the Christmas session is Tuesday, Sept 25th. Upcoming after-school rehearsals: Sept 25, Oct 23, Nov 13, and Nov 27.

Tryon Creek Field Trip
Our first field trip is Monday, October 1st! There are a few spots still available for chaperones. More details to come (I'm still learning the details myself!).

Parent Information Sheet
You should have received an email from our room moms (Karen Fruehauf and Lisa Meek) regarding the Parent Information Sheet. This is an important way for us to connect with parents that are able to volunteer in some capacity for our students. Please return the sheet your child brought home by Tuesday (tomorrow!) if you haven't already. Thank you!

Student Planners
My students are expected to write their homework in their planners every day. If they do not have something written in their planners for a particular day, it is because they have not been fulfilling their duty as a student! Please check in with them each night, asking to see their planner.

Student of the Week: Joseph Fruehauf
