School News for October 8, 2014

Church Singing

Last reminder: The GDLS students will be singing on Sunday, October 12, at our 10:30 a.m. service.  Students should arrive by 10:00 a.m. to warm-up before church.  Weather permitting, the service will be held outside.  Please bring lawn chairs or blankets for sitting on the lawn next to church.  Dress casually or bring along extra clothes to enjoy the picnic and relax!

Please remember that the children and teachers work for many days and weeks to prepare for singing in church.  If you cannot attend, please make your excuses to your child’s teacher in advance.  Thank you for your consideration!

Fall Picnic

Following the outdoor service on October 12, we will join together for a meal and activities!

Meal: Hot dogs and hamburgers will be provided; you are welcome to bring a side dish (e.g. salad, fruit, veggies, chips) to share.

Raffle:  We will be collecting baby items (e.g. diapers, wipes) at the picnic to donate to the Alameda Pregnancy and Life Resource Center, a WELS-affiliated group which helps counsel women and families expecting a baby.  For every item that you donate, you will receive a raffle ticket and the chance to win one of many prizes for children or adults!

Bake-off:  Children and adults are welcome to enter the bake-off (details were sent home last week).  There will be separate categories for ages 12 and under & ages 13+.  Extra copies of the rules can be found in Miss Marquardt’s classroom.
