First Grade Sings for the Seniors

At Redeemer the seniors gather every Tuesday morning to fellowship and have a Bible Study. SLS often takes this opportunity to share a song or skill with these grampas and grammas. We love our seniors. Mr. Beckman taught the group our new "Fruit of the Spirit" song.

Leadership Ranch

Our 7th and 8th graders visited the Leadership Ranch in Republic on Monday. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood, Mrs. Shannon Schmidt helped us to arrange this wonderful day.
We spent the day learning to work together to overcome a problem. Struggle is the name of the game - cooperation and collaboration win the day.

Up, up and away... Takes a trusting soul to work through all the challenges presented at the ranch.

The ranch workers told us we were the best junior high group they had ever worked with... Wonder if they say that to all the groups. Or this really is a terrific group of students to work with.

Mr. Beckman & First Graders Lead Chapel

Mr. Beckman lead chapel on the Fruit of the Spirit - Self-control. He introduced us to the Tator Family. We met father, Dick, and mother, Sweet and kids Emma, Speck and the twins, Bud and Spud. What a family...
First Grader shared the new Fruit of the Spirit song with placards to assist our singing. Way To Go! kids.

It takes lots of focus to play a hand chime. Must get your note sounded at just the right time to create a song.
Thanks for all your hard work to make this happen Mr. Beckman and first graders....

People young and old enjoyed the PALS (SLS's parent group) Ice Cream Social on Monday. The PALS officers took the opportunity to tell the collected group of parents and students all about the important work of PALS. If you want to learn more about our parent group look for information outside the school office on the information shelf. Thanks everyone who came.
