Do you need Extended Care on Friday, December 18 after the early dismissal at 11:30 a.m.? If so, you need to sign up using the online form or by contacting the office or Mrs. Kramer. Deadline is today (Friday, December 11)! We will need at least 7 children signed up in order to provide care. Please plan to bring a sack lunch from home.
"A Fun Little Contest..."
All of the St Paul students who make a contribution to their Church Extension Savings Account will be eligible to enter a contest to win a Christmas jar filled with M&M’s.

All it takes is guessing the number of M&M’s in the jar and the winner who comes the closest, will take home the jar and its contents. How fun is that!

So, remind your “savers” to bring their Savings deposit this Monday, December 14th, for a chance to win. Not only do they build their savings account, they could be the winner of this fun contest.

See you Monday morning. The winner will be announced during Chapel.

How to Support Your Child During COVID-19
  • Take time to talk with your child or teen about the COVID-19 outbreak. Answer questions and share facts about COVID-19 in a way that your child or teen can understand. 
  • Reassure your child or teen that they are safe. Let them know it is okay if they feel upset. Share with them how you deal with your own stress so that they can learn how to cope from you. 
  • Limit your family's exposure to news coverage of the event, including social media. Children may misinterpret what they hear and can be frightened about something they do not understand. 
  • Try to keep up with regular routines. If schools are closed, create a schedule for learning activities and relaxing or fun activities. 
  • Be a role model. Take breaks, get plenty of sleep, exercise, and eat well. Connect with your friends and family members.
