SLS's 8th graders assisted the Kindergarten with a special “secret” art project on Thursday.
The big kids helped with holding and pasting with Mr. Gerdes’ special juice. It’s always great fun seeing big kids and little kids working together.

Pastor Canaday Leads Chapel

Pastor Canaday, serving River of Life just east of Springfield on Hwy 60, came to lead our last chapel of the year. He talked about gift giving and the best gift ever. We sang some terrific Christmas songs and prayed for family and friends. Pastor Matt is a recent graduate from our St Louis Seminary and is good friends with our very own Pastor Parvey.

Mrs. Lynn Students Study Change in Matter-Bread

Gramma Brehmer came to third grade to help with a science project. Flour, water, yeast, a little oil and a touch of salt and sugar, next mix and mix again. Now wait and watch the dough grow. Punch it down and wait again. Making bread is a slow process. Bake it now and enjoy the smell. Let it cool, cut and butter and enjoy another successful science experiment. Thanks Gramma B.

Pre-Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast

In November, the Pre-K class shared a Thanksgiving Feast together. Families brought in portions of a traditional Thanksgiving meal to share family style. Before our meal the students had fun making a craft and sharing a thankful song for their parents. The children made placemats to give our meal a festive look. Those were sent home as keepsakes of our fun day.
