Parent Connection September 18

A Cluttered Mind?
          It happens almost inevitably, even though I have the best intentions. It’s almost like someone comes in during the night and piles up all sorts of mailings, important papers, reference books, tools, and an assortment of pens and pencils onto my desk. I know that it isn’t anyone else besides me who places these things on my desk. There just never seems to be enough time to deal with all of the projects and interesting ideas while keeping up on the lesson planning and correcting. Sometimes it seems that just deciding what needs to be done can cause a wasting of time. I know I can’t do everything at one time so I have to focus on one thing at a time and, eventually, I will find the bottom of the piles.
          I think the same thing can happen in our minds. We have so many things that vie for our attention, our minds get cluttered and we lose our focus. Some (or many) of those things are sent to us by our enemy, the devil, to lead us astray.  He wants nothing more than to get us to lose our focus or to focus on the wrong, less important, things. We need to unclutter our minds and focus on the important things.
         
The writer to the Hebrews directs us to “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the Author and Perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”  Hebrews 12:2.  When things start to get confusing, let’s get back to what is most important- Jesus!

Bible Information Class
          A child’s Christian education is only as good as the cooperation between parents and teachers.  To this end, we feel strongly that all parents need to hear our fundamental beliefs and understand the basic doctrines that all of our school children are taught.  Therefore, we invite parents of school children to attend Pastor Ewings’ “Making Life Better Class” every Monday evening at 6:30 pm. This 15-week class is an extensive review of the basic doctrines taught in the Bible and, therefore, in this school. Parents who complete the class will receive a $500 discount on their child’s tuition for each of three years after completing the class.

Mission Project
          Our mission project for the first third of the school year is for the Matt & Sarah Klebs family to help them with medical costs related to the loss of their son.

PTF
Parent, Teacher, Friends will have their first meeting of the year this Wednesday, September 20th at 7:00pm.  The meeting will focus on volunteers for hot lunches, school t-shirts & sweatshirts, and planning ahead for our Trunk-or-Treat. 
We look forward to seeing you there!

School Yearbook
          We are looking forward to putting this year’s memories to paper, which means it’s time to get the yearbook up and running.  However, it won’t be a success without parents’ involvement.  An email will be sent out this week from our yearbook coordinator, Renee Tegen, with an explanation about how TreeRing works along with a link and instructions to set up your account.  If you have questions, please call or text Renee at 402-516-6911

Chili Cook-Off
Join us this Friday, September 22nd, for a Chili Cook-Off.  The Fellowship Committee will be providing sides and prizes, all you have to do is bring your best pot of chili.  Even if you don’t like chili, we’d be glad to have you join us for fun and fellowship!

Meet Your Teachers Monday
Each week there will be a trivia question posted on the school Facebook page. This question will point to one of your teachers or staff members. Be the first to answer correctly and win a prize. The answer will be revealed on Facebook on Friday.  The answer to last week’s trivia question was Mrs. Traver.  Congratulations to Mrs. Finch and Liam for guessing the correct answer!  Make sure to check the school’s Facebook page for this week’s question.

Healthy Sleep Habits
Teachers have been noticing that their students are coming to school overly tired.  It is important that your student gets enough sleep so that they can participate fully in class.  We need your help to enforce a proper “bedtime” in order for your student to get sufficient hours of rest and sleep. Primary school age children NEED 9 to 11 hours of sleep nightly in order to function properly. Growing teenagers function best with 8 to 10 hours of sleep.

It’s Out of Control
          The second major hurricane to wreak havoc on the shores of these United States in a span of a couple of weeks took up the majority of the news reports over the weekend.  With the threat of at least two others following behind, a person might well think that things have gone haywire in our weather patterns.  Other places are experiencing unusually high temperatures and lack of rain which brings the threat of wildfires.  We could add to these the constant reminders being put out by scientists about global warming and the looming disasters they say will be caused by it, how could one not think that things are out of control?
          One could also look at the major earthquakes that shook much of southern Mexico causing widespread destruction and injuries and wonder what is going on?
          Should we really be puzzled by these events, or worried by them?  All of these things have been foretold, these things will happen before the end of the world. They are just a reminder to all that this world and our lives on this earth will not last forever.
If these events worry you, read Psalm 46. In this Psalm, we are told that God is our “Fortress and refuge and strength”.  We are reminded that God is our “ever-present help in trouble”.  We are also told to “Be still, and know that I am God.”  Things are never out of His control.  All things that happen are under His control so we never have to be worried about anything, He is always by our side.

What is Your Acorn?
          At the beginning of the movie Ice Age, the viewer is introduced to a character who, you could say, has a “one-track mind”.  I’m sure you remember this character even though, if my memory is correct, he doesn’t say one word of dialogue.  He is a squirrel who is chasing his one goal: an acorn. Chasing that acorn gets him into one predicament after another.
As amusing as this character seems to be, I think it points out an important characteristic of humans. More often than not, each of us is chasing after an “acorn”.  Something we think is so important that it eliminates everything else from our thought process and gives us “tunnel-vision”.  Now God doesn’t say this is necessarily a bad thing. In fact he tells us to “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be given you as well.” Matthew 6:33.
So what is your “acorn”?

Emergency Contacts
          Parents, if you did not receive an email and a text from us last week, you need to log into your Educate account and review your contact information as well as your alert preferences.  This way we’ll know how you would like to be contacted for school closings, general communications and school emergencies.  Once logged in, select the pull down menu by your name, select account then alert preferences.
          If you did not previously have access to Educate, you should have received an email today with instructions on how to set it up.
          If you are having trouble logging in, please contact the office.


Emergency Preparedness
Every year at this time we review our plan for emergency situations at our school. If an emergency such as an earthquake or other disaster would occur, plans and material supplies are in place to provide for the safety and security of our students, as well as first aid and extended care in the event that students cannot be immediately picked up by their parents.
In order to help us in this, we ask each family to prepare a small “comfort kit” for your child, with small items to provide comfort and to help keep them occupied and calm in an emergency situation. We sent home a small Ziploc bag the first week of school. Pack your child’s comfort kit with a card containing your child’s name and contact information and other small items for your child’s comfort.  Suggestions include a non-perishable snack (like a granola bar), a pair of knit gloves, a family picture, a small toy, and a letter to your child.
Comfort kits can be brought to your child’s teacher at any time, and will be returned at the end of the school year.

Give Us Today our Daily Bread
          I think all of you would agree that it is important to be consistent in many areas of life. One of the important areas of life is in diet. For a person to grow in a normal fashion, that person needs to be fed a regular diet with a variety of foods. Scientists would tell us to eat a diet with an emphasis on vegetables and fruits, with proper amounts of proteins and even fats. They would probably agree that a good mixture of all food groups, everything in moderation, would be a healthy diet. Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, those things we need to live a healthy existence on this earth.
          The most important part of our diet is what we feed our soul. For our soul to be healthy, we need to be fed a regular diet of God’s Holy Word, with a generous portion of meditation on, and discussion of, that Word with fellow believers. You will want to add a generous portion of worship and spend time talking with your Lord and Savior in prayer. If your soul has been underfed, now is the time to change that. Fill up with those good things and share it with those around you.

Comfort for the Mourning
          As a school family, we mourn with the Matt & Sarah Klebs family at the loss of their son last weekend. At the same time we rejoice in the sure hope from our Savior, “He lives!” There will be a service held this Friday at 5:00P.M. at Trinity Presbyterian Church on Loraine Street just off of Huffman Road. Because of the service, we will have aftercare on Friday only until 4:00 P.M.
          The family has requested school children, who are available, to sing at the service. We will be practicing during the week. If any child needs a ride, let us know.

Chapel Service
          Chapel services during the school year will be held on Thursdays at 8:30am and all are welcomed and invited to attend.

 Our Great Heritage
          As Americans, we take great pride in the freedom, liberty, and peace we enjoy being a citizen of this country. In many ways, we are envied by people around the world. Our standard of living is the ideal that many in the world would like to imitate.
          But when I talk about “Our Great Heritage”, I’m not talking economics. I’m talking something older than our nation, something stronger than the “dollar”, and something that is going to last long past the time you and I are gone from this world. I’m talking about God’s Word as our Great Heritage.
          This year marks the 500th anniversary of the return of the pure Word to the Church. When God raised up Martin Luther to point out the falsehood and traditions that were being taught as the true Word of God, it was the dawn of a new age in the Church. Once again the true Christ and his work for our salvation was being taught to his people. Once again God’s people enjoyed living in the sure Hope that all who trust in Jesus as their Savior have.
          “Our Great Heritage” is our theme for this school year. We will explore how this heritage became ours and how having that heritage changes everything in our lives.   

Chapel Service
          This morning we started the school day with a chapel service opening school.  Chapel services during the school year will be held on Thursdays at 8:30am and all are welcomed and invited to attend.  There will be no chapel service this Thursday due to the service this morning.    

School Reporting and Handbook Forms
          For those who missed the orientation last Wednesday, copies of the handbook, a Parent Handbook Acknowledgement and Permission to Photograph Form, and a Private School Enrollment Reporting Form will be sent home today with your student.  We need to have both of these forms returned to school by Friday, Aug. 25. 
          If you have updated immunization forms please send with your student or drop off at the office.

If an emergency such as an earthquake or other disaster would occur, plans and material supplies are in place to provide for the safety and security of our students, as well as first aid and extended care in the event that students cannot be immediately picked up by their parents.

Watch Your Step
In the book, The 19th Hole, author Carol Mann recounts how golf legend Arnold Palmer will never forget the day he lost his footing.
It was the final hole of the 1961 Masters tournament. Palmer had a one-stroke lead and had just hit a satisfying tee shot. As he approached the ball, he saw an old friend standing at the edge of the gallery. His friend motioned Palmer over, stuck out his hand, and congratulated him for the win he was about to secure.
Palmer later said that as soon as he shook his friend’s hand, he knew he was in trouble. After that congratulatory handshake, he lost his mental footing. He hit his ball into a sand trap. Then he put it over the edge of the green. Then he missed a putt. He lost the Masters.
For us as Christians, the temptation can be strong for us to assume that we can coast through our Christianity: We know the Bible stories. We attend church more often than not. We’re on friendly terms with the pastor. We’re not as bad as those other people. After a while our idea of Christianity can begin to resemble our life insurance policy. It’s nice to know it’s in our filing cabinet if we need it; otherwise we don’t give it much thought.
And that’s when we can lose our footing.
Christianity is not some frame of mind through which we coast. Nor is it some life insurance document we store away for emergencies. Christianity is about our relationship with the One who has rescued us from the guilt of, and just punishment for, our sin.
If you have lost your footing, or you feel you are standing on shaky ground, come to Jesus and be renewed in his forgiveness and love. Don’t forget your relationship during the weeks of summer. Remember your intense need for him never ends. Never!
If you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall.
1 Corinthians 10:12

How Precious Is the Time!
          It was only forty days. That’s an interesting number that comes up several times in the Scriptures. It was forty days and nights that rain poured down upon the earth during the Flood. Jonah pronounced forty days before God would bring judgment upon Nineveh.
          Now that number applied to the time Jesus spent with his disciples after his resurrection. He didn’t spend every minute of every day during that forty day period with them. He appeared to them a couple of times in Jerusalem and then in Galilee. During this time, “he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive.” Acts 1:3.  During these visits, Jesus talked to them about the kingdom of God. Did the disciples realize how precious those moments were? Did they know that these times would not go on forever?
          I wonder what the disciples really thought. When Jesus appeared to them for the last time, on the fortieth day, they asked him, “Lord, are you at this time going to restore the kingdom to Israel?” Acts 1:6. Jesus had to have great patience, these disciples just didn’t get it. They were still looking for deliverance from the hated Roman rule rather than the greater deliverance from the rule of Satan. Jesus told them that they needed to stay in Jerusalem to wait for the Holy Spirit whom Jesus would send to them. It would be the Holy Spirit who would open their eyes and show them the truth.
          We are so much like those disciples. We have studied the Word and yet we don’t always get the “big picture”. We have our own ideas of how we want things to go. We need the same Holy Spirit to guide us through the Word to conform our will to the Lord’s will. How precious is the time we spend in the Word!


Spring Performance
          The Spring Fling will be held on May 19th at 6:30pm.  Students will need to be at UAA Recital Hall by 6:15pm.  A permission slip will be sent home with information about what to wear.
         
Parking Lot Sale

          On the last day of school we will have our end of school picnic beginning at 11:30.
