Start Field Day right by praising God for our physical gifts. We will sing and hear from our boys and God’s Word. Our key verse is 1 Timothy 4:8 and it tells us how God uses our physical gifts and training to point us to something even better.
What a joy it has been for me to teach your boys Bible! Many of them I have had since PK or JK and it is such a blessing to watch them grow up. I am sad that I won’t have them for class anymore. They will have Bible with Mr. Rudzena in fourth grade.
Our last project for Bible is for each boy to pick a “Life verse”. I am attaching some suggestions but the boys are free to use any verse that is meaningful. I am putting this into an activity on SeeSaw. I am asking your help in getting your son to choose a verse and let me know what it is by May 5th.Or if you would rather, you can email me at email@example.com and let me know what verse your son has chosen. Again, thank you for allowing me to partner with you in your son’s spiritual growth.

Dear Elementary Parents,
One of my favorite picture books is a story called A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech. In this book, the principal was so proud of all the teaching and learning happening within the school walls that he decided students should come to school on weekends, holidays, and even during the summer! As you can imagine, both children and teachers became very worried. After some time on this new schedule, a small student helped the principal realize that children do need to learn valuable things at school, but they also have valuable things to learn at home. A balance of the two is necessary. It didn’t take long for the principal to reverse his decision!
