Happy Monday!  Thanks for checking our weekly blog!  My apologies for not sending one out last week.

Our class is putting together a Thanksgiving “Blessing Basket” for a family in our community.  The family includes a mom and twin girls, age 7.  I have created a Sign-Up Genius to make signing up more convenient.  If you are able to share your blessings with us, please have items turned into our class by Friday, 11/18.  If you’d like to help deliver the baskets, please contact Julie Haney.  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c084facaa2fa6f49-thanksgiving

Also this month, most of the school will be attending “Annie” at Roncalli High School, 11/17.  Lucky for us, we are riding a bus with two other classes.  Permission slips have been sent home, and we are asking for $2 to cover the cost of the bus (We rent form FCSC).

Veteran’s Day will be celebrated this Friday with a Communion Service lead by Deacon Ron.  Join us at 8:30 if you can! Feel free to invite an military members you may know.  We want to salute them!

Thanks to everyone who helped with our Halloween party! The kids really enjoyed themselves!
