Friday Notes

 Last Friday Fun: When you look for something, why is it always in the last place you look? Answer: Because when you find it, you stop looking!

 A reminder from our school handbook: Grace Lutheran School believes that reinforcing school lessons at home is an essential part of the learning process, therefore all families should expect to see some assignments worked on at home regularly. Memorization of hymns, Bible passages, spelling words, or independent reading (listening to stories for pre-readers) are assignments that we assume each child spends some time on each day. Current research indicates that 10 minutes of homework outside of the school day for each grade level is a target for the average student. Some students will need more time than this if they work a slower pace, need additional help, or manage their work time poorly during the school day. In addition, independent reading of 15-20 minutes a day is also recommended. Teachers try to keep this in mind when sending home assignments and welcome your feedback as the year progresses. If you need assistance setting up a regular homework routine, please contact the teachers for suggestions.
Certain times of the year, such as the Student Fair or Spring Play, require more than the average amount of work to be done at home, so teachers make an effort to adjust classroom assignments accordingly. It is also our strong desire that our students be able to attend Advent and Lenten services during those seasons, so homework levels are also adjusted during those times.

 Sunday, March 20 (Palm Sunday) – Mini-concert
