A NOTE FROM MRS. HYLAND
Dear Parents,

Veteran’s Day is a time to remember those who have served or are serving our country every day. Today, along with announcements and classroom activities, students will take time to remember and pray for those who sacrifice so much for us. May God bless our veterans!

Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
John 15:13 ESV
happy_thanksgiving_card.jpg
In a few short days, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays. It is such a blessed time filled with family, friends, and, of course, good food! I am thankful the Lord has allowed me to be a part of your children’s lives. What a blessing to see their smiling faces each day. I pray your Thanksgiving is filled with the goodness of the Lord!

I will thank you, Lord, with all my heart; I will tell of all the marvelous things you have done. I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:1-2

Blessings,
Mrs. Hyland
