Dear Parents!

If we teachers decide to cancel school because of snow/ice/bad weather, we will send a mass e-mail and also try to call every family. We also post school closings on Kare11 and WCCO, so please check there, too. If you ever feel that conditions are not safe to bring your child to school, please keep them home. We only ask that you contact us in some way so that we know that your child will not be attending school that day. (This keeps us from worrying if your student doesn't show up.)

Show & Tell this week is an item or picture of your favorite color.

Next week, January 23-27, is Southview's Spirit Week. If your child participates in the day's theme, they may wear casual clothes. If they are not participating on a specific day, then they need to wear the school uniform.

Monday--Hat Day
Tuesday--Book Character Day
Wednesday--Pajama Day
Thursday--Crazy Hair Day
Friday--Class Color Day (K4-2--Red/Pink; 3-6--Yellow; 7-10--Blue)

This Sunday, January 22, is the audition for the 3ABN show Kids for the Kingdom with Brenda Walsh. The students are not required to participate in this audition. If they do want to be a part of it, they will need to be at The Edge Christian Worship Center by 1:30pm. Mrs. Hansen needs the names and ages of everyone participating beforehand to give to 3ABN for their records. The students need to wear their school shirt, and they will be singing the school song. The auditions officially start at 2pm. The Edge is located at 4707 Edinbrook Terrace, Brooklyn Park, MN 55443.

The test scores for the ITBS for some students were sent home today. We're still waiting on some of the other students' score to be sent to us.
We sent home the Pennies for Patients boxes last week. They are due by January 31.
Please don't forget to send in the monthly Book-It charts.
We're still collecting the Boxtops for Education. There's a container in the foyer to put them in.

Special Thanks to Brenda Rathai, Jan Lane, LaVerne Devnich, and Bonnie Clark for helping out in the classrooms and office; Amelia, Adelle, Pastor Hall, Dan Denniston, and the other stealthy parents who helped out in shoving the sidewalk; and Pastor Lee and Pastor Hall for doing worship for the school.



Thanks to those who have already replied that you will be at The Edge church on Sunday, January 22, for the school audition for the Kids of the Kingdom program. The times for the Southview groups are below. Since the school is singing first, school shirts can be worn over the clothes for the King's Kids and the Youth Ensemble. Please be at the Edge no later than 2:00 PM so that we can make sure your name is on the list!

2:25 pm                 Southview Christian School              “So You Would Come”
2:30 pm                 Southview King’s Kids; and
2:35 pm                 Southview Youth Ensemble
Thank you again for your help, support, prayers, and sacrifices as we prepare these students for life here on earth and for eternity.

Have a happy and restful Sabbath!

Mrs. Hansen
