November News


Isn’t the weather gorgeous? The classes are enjoying getting outside every day. We are trying our best to take advantage of the warm sun.

News: Three new students joined this month! Two are in the kindergarten and one is in 3rd grade. We continue to grow and we continue to need another building. If you know of any large building available, please tell us.

We had an especially busy month in October. It was both exhausting and a lot of fun! We have more learning and fun for the rest of the year!

Here are the calendar events for November:

November 2, 16, 30 English Bible study for parents 2:15-3:00 (we meet upstairs in the cafeteria)
