CHAPEL OFFERINGS FOR NOVEMBER & DECEMBER- WARREN’S TABLE
In November and December, we will be collecting money for Warren’s Table. This outreach project at Christ Episcopal Church in Beatrice provides a free meal to the public each Tuesday evening. After we raise funds, we plan to prepare and serve a meal with our older students, and donate any extra funds raised. Our meal is scheduled for Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018, so mark your calendars! The current total is $38.31.

The 2nd Grade will visit Mosaic on Friday, November 17th. The 1st Grade will visit the Homestead National Monument on Tuesday, November 21st.
This week, Friday, November 17th brings us halfway through the 2nd quarter of the school year. Mid-quarter reports will be sent home on Tuesday, November 21st with students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

STUDENT CHRISTMAS GIFT PROJECT
In place of a student gift exchange, students in grades K-5 are participating in the Gage County Christmas Wish List Program again this year. Information about how we plan to participate was sent home last week. Please send your donation for this project by Monday, November 20th.
CHANGE IN WEATHER
Please be sure your child leaves for school with the proper clothing to match the weather. With colder weather in the air, hats, gloves, and warm coats will be needed when going outside for recess. If they wish to go out in the snow, they also need boots and snow pants. Also, with cough and cold season starting, we remind parents that a parent-signed permission is needed to be sent when cough drops are sent to school.
SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION
If school will be closed early or cancelled for the day due to inclement weather, the announcement will be made over station KWBE (1450 AM) radio and also on Channel 10/11 KOLN/KGIN TV and Channel 8 KLKN TV. Announcements are made at least every 15 minutes on mornings when weather conditions require it. We follow the Beatrice Public School’s initiative and ruling in most cases of inclement weather.
Giving Gift Cards for Christmas this year? Order your gift cards through our St. Paul’s Lutheran School “Scrip Card” program and our school automatically gets money in return at no extra cost to you! Order forms are located in the narthex, church office, school office, and on the school’s website. A form was sent home last week. Orders will be placed November 27th and December 11th. Order forms can be turned in to the church or school office.
