October 4, 2019

Boy, was this an exciting way to end an exciting week.  Of course, we did amazing things all week long – but Fabulous Friday was full of Fabulous Festivities. 

The firemen came to see us.  Don’t worry! There wasn’t a fire.  They just wanted us to see their amazing clothes, gear, and trucks.  They did talk to us about fire safety, of course. We have a safe spot to go to in case we have a fire at school.  It’s by the dog statue. The firemen asked if we had a safe spot at our houses. They also asked if we knew our home addresses. 

Mrs. Sumner was especially touched when we recognized this symbol on the EMS truck.  Did you know that is from the Bible? It’s in Numbers 21.

Our hard work in the garden has paid off.  We harvested some Swiss chard. You might be surprised at how yummy it was.  Some of us dipped it in Ranch dressing, but most of us just chowed down like little bunnies!

After an extra long recess (it was just too beautiful and cool to go inside!), we had another gathering all together.

Our older students read Elephant and Piggie books aloud.  They are so fun because the words are in speech bubbles. So, each reader gets to be a character.

One of our favorite things to do is to relax together and watch a cartoon of what happened in the Bible.  We are studying the Exodus and desert wanderings. Next week, we’ll learn how the Israelites got to the Promised Land!

At the end of the day, Ozo, our tiny robot, came out to play.  We draw his roads and he follows them!

Goodness!  It was busy.  But it was so, so, so, so good!

No school on October 14th.  All families need to sign up for a Parent-Teacher Conference!

*Yes, we realize Hawaii is not international, but we’re not being too legalistic.

**Don’t get Mrs. Sumner started on the whole history of Texas, or how it is the only state in the US that has the right to become its own coun…
