Operation Christmas Child

A notice went home with your children- Please review the Operation Christmas Child Form and Please Pray about this gift that will be given to another boy or girl.
This is a chance to provide a gift filled shoebox to a child in desperate situations and share the good news of God's Love.
The true meaning of the season is the birth of Jesus Christ. What a better way to show his love then to give to a child in need.

Please look over the form sent home and please participate in this awesome giving. The deadline is November 17th!!

Thank you again!!!

Trunk or Treat and Holiday Parties- Thursday Oct. 29th

Early reminder that on October 29th, 2009 at 1130 am we will be having our annual Trunk or Treat at FSCP.
Children will begin their costume parade at 1130- if you wish as a parent or family member or friend to have a trunk set up please do so by 1120, the parking lot will be blocked off at 1125-1130 so that we do not have traffic thru the parking lot during the trunk or treat time. Please have enough goodies for 37 students and then some :-) just in case siblings participate we want enough for everyone. After the children complete their time going trunk to trunk they will be have a holiday party in their classroom- be on the lookout for sign ups in your childs class to participate with the party. If you have any questions please see Melissa at the front desk and please do not forget your camera the children always look so cute in their costumes!!
Thanks again!!
