Parent Connection - September 29th Issue #7

Chapel Service
You are invited to join us for our weekly chapel service this Thursday, October 2nd, from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m. This week Pastor Wendland will be leading our worship. This week’s message:  Living for Jesus Means Standing Up for Our Beliefs (Noah). Pastor Wendland is assisting our congregation while Pastor Oldfield recovers from his back surgery. Families and friends are invited to come join us in starting our day with the Lord.

Boys’ and Girls’ Basketball (grades 5-8) practices Tuesday, September 30th and Thursday, October 2nd.  
Basketball is open to students in grades 5-8. Permission slips were sent home with interested students last week. Students who are interested in participating but do not have a permission slip should speak to Mr. Zarnstorff.

Junior Choir meets Wednesday, October 1st. Students should be in the church for practice at 12:20 p.m.
Thank you, Junior Choir, for your service to the congregation at Shepherd of the Hills on Sunday.

Handchime Choir meets Thursday, October 2nd. Students should be in the church for practice at 12:30 p.m.

The Weather is Getting Colder…
Please MAKE SURE that your child has a winter coat, hat and gloves for use at recess when it becomes necessary. Include boots when it rains or when the snow starts to fly.
This week, September 29th to October 3rd, the students in grades 3 to 8 will be participating in Terra Nova and Inview  standardized testing. These tests allow us to compare our students’ abilities with students from our fellow synod schools as well as students in public and private education across the U.S. There is no advance studying necessary for these tests, but it is important that the students are well rested and have a proper breakfast and lunch to allow them to put forth their best efforts and give us an accurate assessment of their skills.
If you have any further questions about these tests, please speak to your child’s teacher or Mr. Schneck.
